105 Union Road, Langwarrin VIC 3910
Historic home with guest house & heated pool
Awash in history dating back 125 years, this circa-1897 cottage offers a captivating snapshot of yesteryear embellished by a 6×3-metre swimming pool and contemporary self-contained granny flat on a 1/3 of an acre (approx) cascading down to Boggy Creek.
Much loved by the same family for the past 30 years, the residence has been comfortably adapted for modern living with a sizeable extension in the rear providing a spacious open-plan second living and dining area beneath a soaring cathedral ceiling with exposed beams.
Subtly adapted in harmony with the character of the home, the original living room of the residence features hardwood floorboards reclaimed from a Williamstown pier, along with stained-glass windows and the authentic hearth fitted with an ambient electric log fireplace.
The recycled beams have been cleverly crafted into cabinetry in the cottage-style kitchen, which boasts jarrah benchtops and stainless-steel appliances, including a 900mm freestanding oven and a dishwasher, while the cedar bathroom in the main house includes an antique vanity and the original clawfoot tub.
Outside, the alfresco patio beneath a high pergola provides a tranquil space to entertain in the open air as the kids swim in the heated inground pool flanked by silver travertine, play in the cubby house or explore the expansive garden with ample room for a veggie garden.
Comfortably accessed via a timber walkway directly off the verandah, the one-bedroom guest house offers its own living area, dining zone, kitchen and modern bathroom to provide a fabulous space for dependent in-laws, house guests or adult children in uni or saving for their own home.
Walking distance to Langwarrin Primary School and Elisabeth Murdoch College and just 800 metres to The Gateway shopping mall, the weatherboard home includes split-systems, a garden shed and double carport.
