This traditional home was originally architect designed and built for the mayor of Essendon. It was named Narwonah. The house is around 100 years old, and has had a recent sensitive extension. One family has owned the property for 29 years. Occupying a 912sqm block, the home is an harmonious blend of old and new.
The eat-in kitchen has had a sleek, contemporary makeover and includes a St George 900mm gas cooktop and two wall ovens. The focal point of the home is a sun-drenched family room, which opens through folding doors to an east-facing deck. The garden has been lovingly maintained, and the swimming pool is surrounded by glass fencing.
Many original features have been maintained, including leadlight windows, a bay window, and Huon pine ceilings with fretwork arches. Other notable features include external access to the laundry, polished Victorian ash floorboards, gas-ducted heating, air-conditioning, under-house storage, a water tank for the garden, and two open fireplaces.
The home has five bedrooms, two bathroooms, and parking for two cars.
