17 Benjafield Terrace, Mount Stuart Eccentric charmer
Sun, 21st Jan 2018
Set in one of Mount Stuart's most notable streets and on the tightly held side of the road we are incredibly pleased to present 17 Benfield Terrace for sale. This eccentric charmer of a house was built in the 40's and has the high ceilings and other original features that were once the height of fashion and still remain timeless to this day.
Under a brand new roof, sporting solar panels the property is currently configured as a solid three bedroom house with semi open plan living areas. There is plenty of space (and height) downstairs to look at the possibility of further developments to perhaps include some further living space STCA.
With an updated kitchen, including plenty of clever storage, a lot of the hard work has already been done. The kitchen opens into a good sized dining room with the most beautiful outlook and a charming balance between old and new, including the sweet touch of original extra wide windowsills just longing to once again hold precious knick-knacks.
Moving through the property you will find that the rest of the house still has original ceilings, in both height and partial timber cladding. The lounge room provides plenty of storage for books which you can enjoy alongside the comforting flicker from the open fireplace which is still fully functional. There is also a heat pump providing a second heating source- but most importantly cooling when the sun streams in the living room windows!
The master bedroom is a fantastic size, with some interesting nooks that could be configured in a number of different ways. The second & third rooms both provide built in storage and wonderful views.
Outside you will find a massive deck with new shade awnings, perfect for entertaining or just relaxing with your family/friends and enjoying the stunning views across the glistening river towards Mount Direction.
The backyard is a blank slate. Already terraced, it wouldn't take much to create further entertaining areas or even a play space for the kids. The space under the deck provides the equivalent of a two-space carport while the old garage (a bit tight by modern standards) provides extra storage for bikes & boats.
Such a tempting offer doesn't come up every day. Already in one of the most sought-after suburbs, with great access to public transport, parks and the city this unique property is located in a very desirable position. With some deft redesigning, 17 Benjafield Tce will become your dream home or a VERY attractive rental.
