12 Sunshine Avenue, Mitcham
A Home For All Seasons
This timeless triple fronted weatherboard home has a true sense of elegance and grace that captivates your attention. The character filled abode has been taken from its humble cottage beginnings, and tastefully extended and renovated to create a family home you’ll be proud to call your own. Set behind a traditional picket fence, it is framed by pretty gardens and a decked verandah, each adding to the home’s street appeal and charm.
Internally, you’re welcomed by a large entry foyer, where glimpses of the surrounding rooms will enhance your desire to explore further. Taking pride of place at the front is a generous formal lounge where high ceilings, deep decorative cornices and an open fireplace surrounded by stacked stone provide wonderful focal points, adding to the beauty of the setting. A sizeable master bedroom with a private ensuite and built-in robes is opposite, and these rooms can be closed off from the rest of the accommodation to allow for additional privacy.
Following the expanse of striking Blackbutt floorboards will lead you through to a significant open plan area that is undoubtedly the home’s nucleus. Here, you will be thrilled to find wonderful garden vistas that extend across the rear of the residence, and the seamless melding of spaces to ensure that a contemporary lifestyle of indoor/outdoor living and entertaining is fully catered for. The light filled zone enjoys a large dining area that flows through to a spacious family room bordered by an expanse of windows. An enticing gas log fireplace is complemented by eye catching cabinetry and shelving; this is a tranquil setting to enjoy the picturesque greenery that’s on offer in the expansive backyard that is made private by well-chosen hedging and plantings.
A modern hostess kitchen adjoins, boasting stone benchtops, gloss cabinets, glass splashbacks, quality stainless steel Blanco appliances and a well-placed servery window that opens out to a substantial undercover alfresco deck. It is here that you’ll enjoy entertaining family and friends in the warmer weather, whilst watching the kids play safely on the lush grass under the shade of a stunning Claret Ash tree that changes with the seasons. The remaining 3 bedrooms extend from this zone and are supported by an attractive central bathroom with floor to ceiling tiles, a walk-in shower and a wall hung vanity.
Extras include gas ducted heating, split system heating/air-conditioning, sash windows, a fully fitted laundry, ceiling fans, a Bosch endless hot water service, a giant sandpit, a storage shed and a double carport.
The location is highly sought, in a no through road with the open green space of Simpson Park at the end of the street. The amenity rich backdrop offers close proximity to the likes of Mitcham station, local buses, numerous reserves and walking tracks, local schools and the popular Rangeview or Mitcham shopping precincts. You’re also an easy distance to Eastlink, the recently renovated Eastland plus Brentford Square, Forest Hill Chase, Westfield Knox and Westfield Doncaster. Avoid disappointment and inspect this enchanting family home without delay. It’s a decision you’ll be glad you made.View Statement of Information
