Frankston South 29a Bruarong Crescent
Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn
Reminiscent of yesteryear, this lovely Georgian Classic, built sometime in the 1940s, could have easily been influenced by the famous 1939 historical romance movie, 'Gone With the Wind'.
The upstairs rooms in this stunning property have great views of Port Phillip and also the valley of Sweetwater Creek Reserve. The backyard is North-facing and provides ample light to the home throughout the year. There are loads of fruit trees including Fig, Mandarin, Orange, Lime and Lemon and there is a magnificent Liquid Ambar, which glows red in the Autumn. There are trimmed hedges on some fences providing additional screening and lovely paved outdoor sitting areas.
From the moment you enter the front door you will notice the ornate stairs, with a bullnose step, stained-glass doors and the large downstairs powder room with period style fittings.
The kitchen is light and bright and is ideal for guests over for a tea and coffee. There is a microwave recess, stained-glass pantry door and stainless steel appliances including: Siemens Oven and a Bosch Induction cooktop (energy efficient and instant heat) and there is a Fisher and Paykel dual-drawer dishwasher and the sink overlooks the lovely streetscape.
The dining has a hidden chimney behind the wall and Tasmanian Oak floorboards throughout - it overlooks the lovely gardens, some of which are deliberately shaped for aesthetics.
The lounge room and adjacent sitting areas (or formal dining) boasts an open fire place with marble tiles, and an ornate mantle - it's fabulous in the winter time. The sitting area is ideal to enjoy some music, or watch some TV whilst overlooking a beautiful Magnolia with white flowers.
The downstairs laundry has plenty of storage and internal access to the double garage.
The property includes 3 lovely bedrooms with split system heating and cooling, the master with an ensuite and a bracket for your television. Both the master and second bedroom are huge and have direct access doors to the balcony and its views, ornate vents and floor to ceiling robes are also included. The third bedroom has a boxed bay window alcove, which perfectly fits a single bed and was once used as a nursery, and now a study, with views to the Street and picturesque gardens opposite.
Upstairs bathroom has a spa bath and shower and remains in character with the rest of the property.
Viewings are on the weekends at the advertised open homes and by private appointment for weekdays.
