Old world architecture meets modern luxuries in this charming Tudor home
FOR lovers of Tudor architecture or the tightly held enclave of Howden — or both — this well-appointed four-bedroom home will be a delight.
Set on a lush 1ha of land with established landscaped gardens, the property is on a peaceful no-through road.
The house has recently undergone a refurbishment, leaving nothing for the next owner to do but enjoy.
On the upper level, there are four spacious bedrooms with abundant storage and plenty of light.
A large family bathroom with a separate shower and indulgent spa bath completes the top floor.
Alongside a study and laundry, the home’s living zones are all on the ground floor.
Abundant space is key to the success of the design and floor plan on this level.
There are neutral tiled floors in the high-usage areas and original exposed Oregon beams throughout. In the hall there are dado boards and under-stair storage.
The formal lounge features an inglenook open fireplace. There is a Saxon wood heater in the family room, plus a toilet and laundry near the rear exit that doubles as a wet room.
The kitchen is a treat with its black tapware, abundant timber cupboards, heaps of benchspace, a range hood and a pantry.
Outside, the grounds feature deciduous and evergreen trees such as silky oak, blackwood, ash and sycamore.
The productive garden includes apples, apricots, cherries, loquats, peaches, pears, grapes, figs, lemons and plums.
There are also two 22,700-litre water tanks.
The property has a double garage and a carport with power plus a big workshop.
Listed with Fall Real Estate, No.49-59 Olearia Drive, Howden is priced in the “High $800,000s”.
