Step back in time at this stunning period family home where old world charm and contemporary comforts combine in a prime location just minutes from the CBD.

Set on a 551sqm block in peaceful Elgin St, opposite the array of sporting facilities at Maitland Park, this property is as pretty as it is practical.

Its also just a short walk from all the CBD has to offer, including shops, restaurants, cinema and art gallery.

Its hard not to fall in love the moment you step foot on this property with a quaint picket fence and neat box hedging framing the weatherboard and aluminium roofed cottage.

A bullnose verandah, with decorative timber fretwork, and a feature leadlight front door are hallmarks of the era in which the home was built - 1920.

The home is brimming with period features, including 12ft ceilings in the original part of the abode, timber floorboards, timber ceilings and daddo walls, double hung windows and picture rails.

As is traditional with such period cottages, the bedroom wing is at the front of the home, with three large rooms, all with built-in robes, to choose from.

The master and third bedroom are serene in rich, warm cream tones, while the guest bedroom is brilliantly on-trend with a splash of burnt orange.

The original section of the home also features a wonderfully light and bright formal living room where soaring timber ceilings, timber panelled walls and picture rails combine with a slow combustion wood heater to create a warm and relaxed space to entertain, read or reflect.

A timber country kitchen will impress with an abundance of storage and bench space, glass-fronted display cupboards, a large pantry and quality appliances, including a new Euromaid oven and stove and a Miele dishwasher.

The kitchen overlooks the modern family room with its cork tiles and L-shaped configuration with the dining space, which flows out through sliding doors to the alfresco area.

Comprising a covered, elevated deck complete with bistro blinds, the alfresco area overlooks the landscaped backyard and provides the perfect venue for casual barbecues, cocktail soirees or just a lazy Sunday brunch.

Home office/ utility room, with built-in robe, is located at the back of the home, off the laundry.

The family bathroom also pays homage to the homes period roots, with tessellated floor tiles in a rich burgundy pairing with a large corner bath, separate shower and large vanity.

The property also boasts lush, manicured gardens and side driveway access to a double, 7m x 7m shed with drive through access to a rear laneway.

Other features include three air conditioners and a trio of gas bayonet points.
