This week I had the privilege of visiting a wonderful Edwardian home at Quarry Hill and chatting with the owners.
“The house would be about 100 years old now, and the Edwardian style was always our favourite,” the owners said.
“So the house is very special, and we think it’s in a great position.”
The home’s period features include return veranda, beautiful fretwork, decorative arch, pine-lined ceilings and coloured-glass windows.
“The home has been extended in previous years,” the owner said, “and much time and effort went into finding and reclaiming original period-style materials.”
It is a grand home with traditional hallway, spacious living, family dining, kitchen with meals, four bedrooms, large study and full-size utility room.
Improvements to the home are partial and straightforward with little alteration to its inherent structure.  
The buyer is free to upgrade and modernise in keeping with their own style and taste.  
Position-wise, it’s perfect, on tree-lined Hamlet Street directly opposite Quarry Hill Recreation Reserve.
As well as natural bush and manicured lawn, the reserve boasts a variety of leisurely pursuits.  
“There are walking tracks and the sports oval, and the tennis court for a hit whenever you feel like it.”
On a mid-sized allotment we found a brick-paved patio and carporting with reclaimed timber posts.
Irresistible charm and endless potential in a blue-chip location near the city centre, train station, shopping centres and schools.
