Western Homes Thursday, January 30, 2014 13 Picture perfect: This charming character bungalow in Avondale is packed with desirable features. The best of both worlds The charm of a character bungalow perfectly blended with a contemporary makeover, is a combination that’s always extremely desirable and this is exactly what greets visitors to 20 Canal Rd in Avondale. Real estate agents Jackie McDermott and Rex Baddeley of RayWhite Mt Albert are marketing the property and say it’s one of the nicest homes they’ve come across in the area. The owners too, have loved the time they’ve spent here, however, a transfer means they have to say good bye and let someone else enjoy all that this peaceful haven has to offer! From the roadside, it’s quite deceptive as to just how big 20 Canal Rd is. Situated next to a park, it’s set on a large fully fenced 683 square metre site with an electronic gate for added security, while the home itself features five bedrooms and spacious living areas. Take a look around and you’ll discover everything about this property is immaculate, from the perfectly manicured grounds and picture perfect entertaining areas, to the tastefully decorated interior with its lovely neutral colour palette and character features like a high stud, bay windows with seating, leadlight windows and polished timber floors. The open plan living, dining and kitchen area is set at the rear of the home and features a gas fireplace for winter warmth, as well as its own access through bi-fold doors out to a sunny and sheltered patio that’s perfect for al fresco dining. As you would expect in a residence of this quality, the kitchen is a real stunner. Large and light, it features a breakfast bar, five-burner gas hob, wall oven and dishwasher. The five bedrooms include an attractive master suite which comes complete with a fireplace and window seat. These rooms are served by an elegantly appointed bathroom with a spa bath, shower, toilet and stylish vanity, along with other modern comforts like heated flooring and a heated towel rail. Additional features include a separate laundry and large internal access double garage. Enjoy entertaining: Bi-fold doors from the open plan kitchen, dining and living area open out to a covered patio. You’ll also love the convenience of this property’s location – just 10km from the CBD, with the motorway, excellent schools and amenities nearby. 20 Canal Rd can be viewed at the open homes this Saturday and Sunday from 2.30pm to 3.30pm and will go to auction in rooms at Ray White Royal Oak, Level 1, Royal OakMall on February 11 at 6pm (unless sold prior).
