This classic weatherboard puts a pretty face to the street but it’s indoors that the true excellence of the place is revealed. Fully revamped to a high level, it’s now a contemporary showpiece that will have admirers lining up to snag one of Sunshine’s finest

Honey-toned floorboards are laid all through (including bedrooms), the colour palette is pearl-grey and white, windows are dressed in either traditional Holland blinds or white plantation shutters, and everything sings with chic style.

Entry is to a wide hallway, along which are the three large fitted bedrooms, the main bathroom, and laundry with closet. The bathroom is lovely, with white dado panels and a pedestal basin.

The street-facing main bedroom, with blue-grey wall paint and plantation shutters on a corner window, has a walk-in robe and a sleek en suite.

The expansive living hub, with banks of windows streaming in westerly light, incorporates a big kitchen that’s loaded with appeal. Timber benches top lots of white cupboards, as well as an angled island bench for at least three, white subway tiling forms the splashback and there’s a 900mm cooker.

A sliding barn door opens from the hub to a fab room converted from the double garage (this can be readily reinstated if needed). Polished concrete floors, white-painted brick walls, and sets of bifolds opening either end make it a great party pad, kids’ playroom or a space to retreat to for movie-watching.

A large covered and elevated deck faces an expansive stretch of lawn, edged with plantings. Everything is neat and well executed.

The outstanding property also has ducted heating, evaporative cooling and a split-system.

Sunshine Marketplace shopping centre and the station are both within four-minute car trips, and five schools are less than a kilometre away; Melbourne CBD is just 13 kilometres away.
