100 Fenwick Street, Portarlington
Period Charm in Prime Position
The not only handy but also much sought after location of this home is relatively obvious with the beach, shopping centre and school all within a couple of minutes' walk but don't be fooled by the seemingly unremarkable facade as another world awaits through the solid timber entrance door.
Almost unexpectedly, the interior of the building has all of the detail and period charm of an original cottage with polished timber floors throughout, classic timber panelled walls and ceilings, spectacularly high ceilings and a warmth that can only be found in true character homes. Each of the 3 bedrooms are supersized and feel even more so with their white-wash finish. Ceiling fans in each provide comfort from the sizzling Portarlington summers when you have to drag yourself away from the safe sandy shores.
Living areas in the home are centrally located to allow for the perfect flow and include a spacious but cosy living room with reverse cycle heating/cooling as well as a traditional open fire for chilly winter nights along with a massive country style eat in kitchen/dining room at the rear. Here the colour scheme shifts and incorporates the bolder colours and heavy timbers that are so often associated with heritage properties with double hung windows and French doors allowing good air flow and an entrance onto the huge decked alfresco overlooking the garden. The bathroom continues the traditional theme with pedestal basin and claw foot bath but also comes with the convenience of a free standing shower and separate WC via the roomy laundry area.
Situated on a 1000sqm allotment with subdivision potential (STCA) and ample shedding secured behind lockable gates, the backyard is perfect for pets and children and even boasts the obligatory fruit tree in the centre of the lawn. Perhaps not what you expect from first sight, this home has a charm that is difficult to reproduce in modern days and well worth inspection so that it may reveal all of its treasures to you personally.
