SOLD BY JUNE FRANK - “WALKERVILLE” ATOP CINTRA

 

A grand 5-bedroom home on 1538m2 nestles at the top of a charming cul-de-sa.

HISTORY:

This house was built circa 1909 at Bergins Hill for John and Ellen Walker. John was one of 5 brothers who owned and operated the Aberdare Colliery at that time. In 1918 an acre of land became available on limestone hill, extending from Cintra street to Chermside Road. John and Ellen bought the land and the following year, shifted their house there by bullock teams. Descendants believe this house was also extended after it was shifted. About 1950 this house was converted into flats; very common after the second world war when there was a huge shortage of accommodation. It was restored in the 1980s and has now returned to its former glory. After more then 32 years of living in and lovely maintaining and restoring this magnificent colonial home, it is now time to hand over to new custodians to preserve and enjoy all of the benefits of colonial lifestyle.

If you have a dream list of features you are looking for then this will surely cover them all – including stunning cast iron lace work on wide wrap around verandas, which have been completely restored. Magnificent cedar entry with original lead light panel and side lights. Graceful large rooms featuring pressed metal ceilings and french doors for veranda access. In the massive drawing room there is a fire place and it is large enough for the biggest gathering of friends and family. On a practical side there are 5 generous bedrooms. The main with walk through robe to full bathroom size ensuite with step up bath and separate shower. This bathroom is two-way to the hall and services two further bedrooms to the front section of the house.

At the end of the hall and front section a solid door opens to the most magnificent drawing room, with pressed metal ceiling, fire place and a wall of clear glass colonial bar sliding windows providing soft southern light and breezes.
