Heritage detail meets modern living at this Beckenham home for sale

Offers invited on or before 1pm, Wed 6 Nov 2019

This 1910’s weatherboard home, formally known as ‘Rosemorran’, pairs lovingly restored heritage detailing with a well-considered layout tailored to modern living, courtesy of an extensive renovation in 2015. A large, seamless addition showcases this grand home’s attention to detail with warm wooden floorboards, ceiling panelling and cabinetry. The extension’s open-plan layout features a spacious living, kitchen, and dining space with seamless outdoor flow that is well suited to entertaining.

An informal patio and large manicured lawn flow from the living area while the deck is a continuance of the kitchen and dining space. An entertainer’s dream, the kitchen boasts ample built-in storage which is accompanied by a generous storage room and laundry. Incorporating the rich history of the home, the pressed tin splashback has been restored from what were original panels in the dining room.

Set upon a 1,576sqm section, the floor plan features two additional ground level living rooms, a family bathroom, an office, grand entrance and wine room. The home’s heritage detail and timber framing continue upstairs with four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a spacious master bedroom featuring a modern tiled ensuite and stand-alone bath. During the renovations, designed by architect Michael O’Sullivan, the dwelling was re-wired and re-plumbed.

Outdoor maintenance is managed by an irrigation system that waters the boundary garden and ensures that the beautiful entrance gardens are poised to greet visitors. The outdoor living areas face north for all-day sun while the fireplace, several heat pumps, under-tile heating, and ample insulation keep the home cosy come wintertime.

Poised on tree-lined Fisher Avenue, the property is a two-minute drive from Beckenham School and Beckenham Park. Other local schools include Cashmere High School, Thorrington School, Christchurch South Intermediate and St Peters. This remarkable home is sure to capture the hearts of many.
