At the end of a quiet no through road, set on 701m2 and less than 100 metres to the water's edge, this early Taroona shack offers a rare opportunity to secure a position in a highly sought-after and tightly held pocket of one of our most popular suburbs.
Built in the 1950s and then extended in the 2000s this property offers the charm and romance of the original Taroona homes. In the same family since 1958, many of the original features remain. The ground floor showcases original vertical cladding and timber framed windows, a feature open fireplace, retro light fittings and high ceilings. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom and study, living room with garden views, timber kitchen and formal dining room or third bedroom.
A lovely, central timber staircase accesses the second storey extension which offers a completely self-contained living space with an enormous living and dining area and simply spectacular River Derwent views all the way to Tranmere, South Arm and beyond. There's a further bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and updated ensuite. The second kitchen boasts more quality timber cabinetry and access to a covered deck where you can relax and listen to the water lapping at the shore. To the rear of the property it's all blue sky, gorgeous gumtrees and the grassy Kelvedon Oval for as far as the eye can see.
The enormous back garden has fabulous fruit trees and charming outbuildings with feature cladding and windows perfect for studio spaces, workshops, cute cubby houses or extra storage.
A gate cut into the back fence gives access to a sandy track that will have you at the water's edge in a couple of minutes and joins the picturesque, dog friendly, walking track that will take you on an easy walk to Melinga, Hinsby and Taroona beaches.
Taroona's popularity continues to grow with its coveted schools and numerous sporting and recreational facilities including tennis, bowls and football clubs. All of which are an easy walk, along quiet, tree-lined streets and foreshore tracks.
Lifestyle living at its best.
