Perched on 651 square metres in the family-favourite suburb of Mangerton, 8 Byrarong Avenue has been renovated throughout to offer a delightful combination of modern comforts and timeless charm.
According to the selling agent, Belle Property’s Nicole Kay, this lovely home presents an idyllic oasis for a young family to move into and enjoy.
“In addition to having four bedrooms, this home has multiple formal and informal living areas, so it really is the perfect package for a young family,” she says.
“It’s a great indoor-outdoor entertainer, with good flow from the front all the way to the back outdoor space, which is one of the best parts of the home.”
This “all-seasons” undercover alfresco terrace takes in gorgeous views of the escarpment and overlooks the private leafy backyard boasting a saltwater pool with a cabana and external studio.
“I can see the new owners spending a great deal of time out there, hosting barbecues with friends in the summer or sipping a glass of wine as they watch the sunset over the escarpment,” Nicole says.
“The cabana/studio is completely separate from the house, and would make a great working-from-home space.”
With multiple formal and informal living areas, this home provides ample room for family gatherings and entertainment. Two of the four bedrooms adjoin the downstairs rumpus room, creating a perfect breakout space for older kids and teenagers to entertain friends without disrupting formal living areas.
“The family can come together whenever they wish, or enjoy their privacy as needed,” Nicole says.
The sun-drenched stone kitchen is modern and functional, with a Miele oven and picturesque escarpment views. However, the original leadlight windows remain as a beautiful reminder of its original cottage charm.
In fact, the home retains many of its heritage features, including the original pine floorboards, high ceilings with ornate cornices and a fireplace in the formal lounge room.
“The owners did an excellent job of renovating for modern convenience but in a way that’s very sympathetic to the character of the home,” Nicole says.
“People will love the blend of the old with the new.”
Other handy features include a lock-up garage with internal access and wise placement of air conditioning and heating.
In a setting known for its family-friendly vibe, you’ll love being so close to everything Mangerton has to offer. In particular, this home is within walking distance to schools including The Illawarra Grammar School (TIGS) and is in the feeder area for Mount St Thomas, which is always in high demand. Edmund Rice College and St Mary Star of the Sea College are both an easy bus ride away too. The hospital precinct and beautiful surf beaches are only minutes away, and there’s easy access to the CBD, freeway and transport.
8 Byrarong Avenue, Mangerton is open for inspection on Saturday 28 October from 11:15 am to 11:45 am. For more information call Belle Property’s Nicole Kay on 0411 669 920.
