From the moment you step under the Victorian-style trim and past its covered outdoor entryway, number 21 Caroline Street, Corrimal invites you to take a tour of a “first-class” family home.

The seamless floorplan beckons you from room to room with bright and spacious interiors, punctuated by period detailing and character features to offer “old world modernised”, according to the selling agent, Jason Hines of Fitzgerald Hines.

“You get the grand proportions of older homes – big room sizes, high ceilings, solid build – but with all the conveniences of modern living,” he says.

“As you walk through the front door and down into ‘old era’ hallways, you naturally spread into a massive lounge room and then you’re drawn outside.

“There you’ll find landscaped open spaces and of course, that pool.”

The original structure is believed to have been built in the 50s or 60s, with an extension added in 1991, followed by a kitchen upgrade and the pool.

Today, that pool – with its beautiful tiling and plenty of space for outdoor furniture to laze on – is a highlight of the Californian Bungalow-esque home.

“This home seems built for entertaining. Out back is a haven you can escape to, and at times it feels like you’re in a resort,” Jason says.

“There’s a deck overlooking the pool where you can enjoy drinks and meals with friends. The backyard is extremely private, owing to the way it’s been planted out with taller trees on the western side, and the pool is bathed in sun all day.”

Sunlight is a common theme throughout the property due to its aspect and openness.

“It’s well and truly full of natural light. The living room and main bedroom in particular are drenched in northern light,” Jason says.

The enormous main bedroom, complete with ensuite and massive built-in wardrobes, is a parents’ retreat.

Floating floors in some spaces and plantation shutters hint at how cosmetic changes could create a contemporary aesthetic throughout, while retaining the character of the home.

With a price guide of $1.9 million, this home is possibly best suited to a professional couple with older kids. There are plenty of living spaces to come together but also separate zones for peace and privacy when needed.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home sits on a generous 790 sqm and is walking distance to Corrimal’s “main stretch”, with shops, cafes and restaurants, and quality schools, public transport and stunning beaches nearby.

“Corrimal is a suburb with consistently strong performance, and this home is very central,” Jason says.

“Location aside, the home itself has been immaculately kept, with great care and detail in the renovation and restoration. It’s a first-class home.

“Everyone who comes through says it’s better than the photos. There’s no better way to understand the size and quality than with an inspection.”

Number 21 Caroline Street, Corrimal is open on Saturday 17 February from noon to 12:30 pm – for more information contact Jason Hines on (02) 4226 3733.
