Sitting proudly on one of Leongatha's most historic streets with a striking street presence is this undoubtedly cared for and comprehensively appointed family home. Originally constructed in the late 1800's and re-located to its current position as the original Leongatha Secondary College boarding house, this eternally appealing property has been lovingly restored to create a family home, perfect in both design and detail.
As you walk through the gate, you are welcomed by established, lush gardens and a stencilled concrete path leading you to the front entrance and creating a wonderful first impression. The large loungeroom is the central hub of the home, a fantastic place to relax and listen to the crackle of the wood fireplace.
Perfect for even the largest of families, the home features four enormous bedrooms. The master bedroom has a modern ensuite with more than enough room for a walk in robe to be added. Three remaining bedrooms all feature polished floorboards and stunning high ceilings. The family bathroom has been modernised with a corner shower, separate bath and plenty of room to move.
The rear of the home offers fabulous family functionality with a large kitchen and meals area, plus a separate formal dining room or second living area. The kitchen has been modernised with downlights, a 900mm gas stove with electric oven and island bench with breakfast bar. A sunroom out the back is a gorgeous light filled multi-purpose area - an ideal study, library or kids playroom. In keeping with the rest of the home, the laundry is oversized with plenty of room for storage.
The large 1222m2 block is situated on the corner of Ogilvy Street and Horn Street, directly opposite Leongatha Secondary College and Leongatha Primary School - instead of the daily school drop off and pick up, you can relax on the expansive wrap around verandah as the kids cross the street.
No expense has been spared in the restoration and everything has been done including a full repaint inside and out, a new roof, new external cladding and upgraded wiring. Your comfort is guaranteed with gas ducted heating throughout and multiple split system heaters/air conditioners.
At the rear of the home, you will find a great sized workshop/studio, carport and wide gravel driveway with more than enough off-street parking for visitors. This home is one you need to see for yourself - call to book an inspection to view this property, an unforgettable blend of period elegance and captivating contemporary style.
