Californian bungalow elegance meets contemporary excellence in this beautifully renovated home, tucked away yet conveniently close to shops, public transport and schools. One of Highbury Avenue's original homes is now the perfect four-bedroom family oasis, transformed inside with zoned living and enhanced outside with a pool and family-size garden. The high-set design lets you sit on the front verandah and admire cherry blossom trees and the new charcoal grey and white exterior. Inside is idyllic with a spacious family room looking out to the garden and pool, a zoned lounge adorned with original windows and Baltic pine floors, and a renovated kitchen with a Smeg oven, Highland induction and pendant lighting. Meticulous planning has gone into updating this home for 21st-Century living, adding a two-way ensuite and second bathroom, the option of a fourth bedroom or study with garden access, five kilowatts of feed-in tariff solar power, keypad-entry front door, ceiling speakers, ducted heating, air conditioners and ceiling fans. Indoor-outdoor living is superb here, with a full-length undercover verandah doubling as an all-weather outdoor room. Summers are so much better with a pool, and this one has a retractable cover, solar heating and a deck area at one end. Citrus trees and passionfruit vines offer home-grown goodness, there's a garden slide for the kids, and privacy hedging enhances the backyard. Central address is a five-minute walk to the train station, there's a new-look supermarket a few streets away, and South Road's schools, cafes and restaurants are close by.
