68 Chidlow Street sits unassumingly behind a limestone and wrought iron fence and is well located within the town of Northam. The home dates from 1907/8 and has its original tuck pointing and stone foundations. It is a wonderful example of federation architecture, meticulously renovated and maintained for contemporary living by the current owners.
The home comprises five oversized bedrooms, two bathrooms, a classic contemporary kitchen, large dining and living area. It is fully insulated, has 5kW solar, reverse cycle ducted air conditioning, NBN and monitored security. It is surrounded by wide verandahs that extend the living space to the lush gardens outside.
Step inside to a massive hall that stretches over 10m and is over 2m wide. Entering off the hall are the four minor bedrooms, although the smallest is well sized at 3.6m x 4.2m. All have fireplaces and easily accommodate queen sized beds.
The master bedroom is a massive 6.4 x 5.5m room with a beautiful fireplace and french doors opening to the verandah. It has a large ensuite with double shower, full size bath and additional linen storage.
The lounge/living space features a large sized jarrah topped mantel piece, french doors opening to the verandah and to the dining room. It also has a cellar located directly underneath providing significant area for wine and general storage.
The kitchen is well appointed with ILVE appliances and trezzini benches. The dining space is adjacent to the kitchen and opens to a large back deck/verandah where there is ample space for lounge and dining furniture. The second bathroom/laundry/toilet is found off a passageway that leads from the kitchen.
The house is well positioned at the front of the large 1821m2 block.
The private parkland gardens with mature trees has lawn and areas for veggies and chooks, along with a cubby house. The garden has been well planned and fully reticulated so care is easy.
There is an oversized 6.5 x 7.5 m carport, insulated workshop/garage, like the house, has 3 phase power. There is additional covered car parking under the rear verandah.
It is an easy stroll to the main street of Northam with major shopping, services, doctors, cafes and new Shire swimming complex (opens Jan 2020). The Avon Descent commences just at the bottom of the hill. All this less than an hour from Perth.
