House of the week: Grand designs in Eaglehawk

THE first thing that strikes you about this charming California bungalow, conveniently located on Eaglehawk Road, is the grand entrance.

As you ascend the steps to the portico you notice there are six columns, instead of the usual two or four, that lends the place a touch of grandeur, in keeping with the stunning oval leadlight in the front doors which is a real focal point of the home.

Inside, original period features including leadlight windows, ornate ceilings, hardwood floorboards and a stunning domed ceiling entry set the place apart.

Built in 1930 the home is a fantastic example of the era.

It sits on 1012 square metres so there is room to extend if you wish. In the words of the agent there is great space for renovations to add to the grandeur.

The home has three bedrooms with a study plus a sleepout.

To the right of the entrance, double glass doors open into a big lounge room which leads into a formal dining room.

To the left is a double bedroom at the front, with an adjacent bathroom which was recently renovated. A second bedroom lies past this while the remaining bedroom is towards the back of the house.

There is a good-sized kitchen adjacent to the original kitchen now being used as a study.  It is a versatile space that could serve as an extra bedroom or a huge pantry.

At the back of the kitchen there is also a laundry and second shower and toilet.

A sizeable garden, garage with roller door and covered carport are accessed from the side street.

A subdivision could be possible subject to council approval but it may be a shame to spoil the grand possibilities of this property.
