Central Bardon Cottage With Architect’s Redesign Plans Available

Perfect, family friendly locations as good as this one are hard to find, and this delightful c. 1940 built bungalow backing onto a council reserve, is a five minute walk from Bardon Community Kindy and Bowman Park's sports grounds, Bardon State School and St. Joseph's Primary.

With restored, intricate plaster ceilings, hardwood timber floors and a stylish, ultra-modern, integrated Miele and Smeg kitchen already in place, an exciting opportunity exists to explore a planned extension and contemporary redesign of the home's living spaces.

Architectural renders are completed, and plans drawn, to purposefully capture the potential and essence of this hillside site and its elevation as it falls from front to back. Introducing an internal staircase that leads to captivating, flowing ground level interiors, the new design possibilities maintain a connection to the landscape, the treetops and parkland backdrop, and seeks to favour natural materials during construction.

Presently set across one main level and tucked privately behind a high timber front fenceline, the home's advantageous north-east aspect welcomes, with a sun-drenched timber landing built around a fragrant frangipani.

With separate lounge and dining areas, three bedrooms and a versatile study, media or children's playroom in its current form, the picture-book worthy weatherboard cottage is functional and fashionable, with on-trend, jewell-toned paint and cabinetry finishes and terrazzo floor and splashback surfaces.

Recessed lighting features and across-window open display shelving allow plenty of light in the eat-in kitchen. Deep green facings and recycled hardwood benchtops meet impeccably at a mitred edge, with bold, circular brass knobs to doors and soft-closing drawers. A black, freestanding, 6 burner Smeg cooker couples with a fully integrated Miele fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

The bathroom has had a complete makeover and incorporates modern matt black fittings, rainshower, oversized mirrored wall cabinet, wall and ceiling orb lights and vivid white, square, high gloss wall tiles. External stairs lead to the home's undercroft, where storage areas, a decked terrace with BBQ area and laundry space is situated.
