It is believed that this unique, detached four bedroom chalet bungalow was inspired by the colonial architecture of the early 20th century, with the south facing veranda which, at the time of building, would have had sea views. It was built in 1920, and is deceptively spacious; the central hallway is broad, and parquet flooring flows throughout the ground floor in walnut. All doors and architraves mirror the floor, and the rooms are generously proportioned. It also benefits from a sun room, a wrap around lawned garden, three bathrooms, and a detached double garage/workshop with parking for three cars.

Why you’ll like it:
This pretty walled chalet bungalow is individual in style, as its neighbours are stately Victorian villas with hung tiles and mock Tudor gables. Instead it has a white render, with brick and timber arches covering the south and west facing veranda, and is well hiddenfrom the street by planting and a perimeter pillared fence. It also has a large double garagenext to the property which can be used as a workshop as there is also a hard standing thatwill allow parking for three cars. You enter through a wooden gate, and up a path past aholly bush and bay trees to the porch, and the front door is ahead. This is striking in orangewith a decorative leaf print in the frosted glass, and it opens to a broad and welcoming,central hallway.
It is immediately clear that this home is a wonderful blend of period features, contemporarycolour and design, and has a wealth of character. First on the right is the living room. Thishas an unusual hexagonal bay window, perfectly placed for viewing sunsets, and furtherpicture windows facing south over the lawn. From here you can access a sun room, andthis has been insulated for use all year round.
Across the hall is bedroom two which is a good size double, and also looks out over thepeaceful garden. There is space in here for other pieces of bedroom furniture too, butbedroom four next door has been transformed by the current owners into a magnificentdressing room with a wall of hanging space, and storage solutions for hats, bags and shoes.It would also be suitable as an office, or a bedroom as intended, with space for a double bed.
Next door to this is a fabulous and chic shower room which has an entire wall of iridescentgold mosaic tiles, and luxurious large black tiles on the floor and the wall. The walk inshower has a fixed glass door and a monsoon shower head, and the window is frosted for privacy.
At the far end of the hall are the stairs to the first floor, and next to these is the entranceto the kitchen. In here the units are white gloss and they are topped with dark glisteninggranite for contrast. The units running along the right hand side are solid wood, and areon trend with a striped ply trim. The sink has been cut into the granite below the window,and the dishwasher, 5 ring gas hob and extractor hood complement this in chrome. Thereis a door leading from here to the detached double garage to the rear of the house, andnext to it is a separate utility area for your washing machine and dryer.
The kitchen wraps around the rear of the house, and links to the dining room which canalso be accessed from the hall. This is a delightfully sunny room as it has a deep bay windowwhich is south facing, and there is ample space for a large dining table and chairs; perfectfor family meals or dinner parties.
Climbing the ruby car peted stairs to the first floor, you come to a small landing where twofurther double bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, have been created in the roofspace. For this reason they have interesting vaulted ceilings, yet there is still plenty ofheadroom, and both bathrooms have white suites with a shower over the bath.
