You best be quick because this large family home is a rare find in the heart of urban Sydney. The foundations of a traditional Federation facade have been retained through a complete renovation which turned this property into a large double story family home, complete with landscaped garden, entertaining area and sought after double garage. What more could a growing family ask for?
The single street frontage home boasts many original features which have been restored to emphasise the period charm, including stunning wrought iron fireplaces, high patterned ceilings and original timber casement windows. The recent renovation added gorgeous solid Jarra timber floors throughout, an extra story with master suite, and a large north facing living area opening onto the back garden, filled with natural light. Downstairs there are two double bedrooms both with built in robes and original fireplaces, a large modern bathroom with frameless shower and high-end finishes and a laundry.
At the back of the property, taking advantage of the northerly aspect, a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area opens onto a deck. The custom built kitchen boasts top of the range European gas appliances, slow closing drawers, double granite bench tops and a large island bench with breakfast bar.
The seamless second story extension has a third bedroom with built in robe and large storage room, as well as the oversized main bedroom suite. This includes a luxury walk-in-robe, modern ensuite with freestanding bathtub and frameless shower, and sunny balcony overlooking the rear garden.
The generous proportions of this immaculately presented family home are complemented by the landscaped rear garden with flagstone pavers, large vegetable patch and paved play area, all shaded by gorgeous established trees. Perhaps the real winner of this property is the oversized double garage with rear lane access, and through access into the garden. Leave the cars at home and catch the bus or train to work! Consider the possibility of adding a second level home office or teenagers retreat (SCTA).
This family home is located in a quiet street within walking distance of excellent state and private schools, parks, shops and numerous cafes, pubs and amenities. Local delis, fruit markets, cafes, restaurants and more are just a stone’s throw away on Marrickville road. The area is well serviced by buses and the south west trainline with Marrickville and Sydenham stations nearby. For growing or established families, this home is an absolute must visit. Move in with nothing to do!
Marrickville is arguably Sydney’s most popular, culturally vibrant suburb, thanks to a growing number of cafes, galleries, nightlight and a creative industry revival. This unique injection of life has managed to boost rather than change the peaceful, neighbourly vibe of the suburb. Because of this, Marrickville is equally popular for young creatives, professionals and families alike.
It’s central location adds to the appeal of the largest suburb in the Inner West. To the north Marrickville is hugged by the Portuguese influenced Petersham with its delicious chicken shops and traditional patisseries; and the eclectic patchwork of Newtown. An artistic revival and the fast growing creative industries in St Peters and Alexandria to the east also spilling into Marrickville’s cultural blueprint. For workers commuting to the city, Marrickville is well serviced by numerous bus routes, as well as the south west train line.
The suburb has a long history of community, beginning with market gardens and a mix of Greek, Vietnamese and Chinese immigrants. This heritage has left a great mark on the suburb, today known as one of the best culinary centres for Vietnamese. There are also a host of other excellent eateries including Italian, Lebanese and Greek, as well as a handful of high quality Australian pubs. Community is also at the heart of some suburb rituals, including the renowned Sunday fresh produce markets. Located next to the Sydney recycle institution Reverse Garbage, the markets have everything from locally grown produce to fresh made hot meals, plants and second hand clothing.
Marrickville is, not surprisingly, at the heart of Sydney’s cafe and coffee culture, home to some of the city’s best establishments including Coffee Alchemy on Addison Road, which has won the SMH “Best Coffee” award for four years running.
The eclectic culture and image of Marrickville, with its renovated warehouse homes, creative businesses, car repair workshops and traditional federation homes makes this both an attractive and interesting area. This sense of community life has also spilled into the pubs and entertainment venues around the suburb, creating a welcoming culture with something for everyone to enjoy.
