If you're looking for a home full of character that befits the beauty of the surrounding suburb of Darlington, you cannot go past this utterly stunning double-storey property. Inside undeniably bursts with the charm of a bygone era, while also benefiting from modern upgrades throughout. If you're not immediately won over by the spectacular entrance, you'll also be wooed by gleaming timber floors flowing seamlessly through an elegant lounge - just imagine this space lit by the firelight of the slow-combustion fire come the chilly evenings just around the corner. There's a formal dining room which is bathed in sunlight during the day but will be just as pretty for grand dinner parties come dusk. To cater for these epic future functions, the country kitchen offers a solid, tidy space to whip up anything from weekend-easy breakfasts to be taken in the casual dining area to four-course gastronomical feasts either enjoyed in the formal dining or outside under the delightful entertaining area.

Downstairs also boasts a dreamy and creamy main suite fit for royalty complete with ensuite, built-in display shelves, and direct access to the verandah where you can set up a mini fresh air sanctuary with a pretty view. Adjacent is a fabulous crafting room which could be transformed into just about anything you've ever dreamed of; a peaceful yoga studio, a whimsical nursery, a music room. The remainder of the bedrooms are separated by stairs where four generously sized rooms, all with built-in robes, await mini Kings and Queens who like their mornings dappled in sunshine, birds flitting outside, with fantastic views of the treetops just outside their timber-framed windows. There's also a particularly special library/lounge space upstairs with balcony access for those seeking an elevated corner to unwind.
