Set on a spacious 7,120m2 block.
Forthcoming Auction set for April 7 at 4:45pm
River Road is arguably Elderslie’s most sought after destination, renowned for its country feel and relaxed lifestyle, yet so close to Camden CBD. Offering both the perfect location and, in this case a large sweeping block, it’s understandable why this street is such a desired location. Built in 1910, 34 River Road will not disappoint with its open plan layout throughout the main house, an internal parents’ retreat/guest accommodation, large shed, detached home office, inground pool and an abundant amount of land.
Upon entering the property, you are greeted with a charming paved front yard adorned by well-established trees and gardens. A plant-lined path invites you onto the original timbered verandah, the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee.
The ornate cedar trimmed ceilings, high skirting and arched doorways are just some of the many striking features contained within this period home. Oversized bedrooms four and five are situated at the front of the home, and have large windows that overlook the front veranda and gardens. Both rooms feature downlights and bedroom four includes a large built in robe. Bedroom five could easily be converted into a study or home office.
The master bedroom has opportunities galore. Next to the existing walk-in robe is an empty room. Although it may not seem like much, this is a renovator’s dream, only limited by your
creativity. Here are two options:
1. Transform this area into an ensuite off the walk in robe transforming this space into a true master suite. This will in turn allow a new kitchen to go in the adjacent parents’ retreat resulting in a fully fitted granny flat.
2. Remove the internal wall, in turn providing access into the existing parents’ retreat for the ultimate space for mum and dad, having their own piece of paradise with a large bedroom, living area and ensuite.
Upstairs in the main house is every teenager’s dream – a fully-fledged teenage retreat. With space for two beds, plenty of shelving, ducted air conditioning and a common lounge area, this is perfect space for one or two siblings. If a teenager’s retreat is needed then there are many ways which this space could also be utilised, such as storage space or a study nook.
The combined open-plan kitchen, living and dining room is enormous with more than enough room for the whole family to enjoy. The custom, hand-crafted kitchen is complimented with a 40mm Caesarstone benchtop, antique timber island bench and chandelier. All these features blend seamlessly to create a luxurious kitchen that also features a 900mm Smeg oven, six-burner gas cooktop, double sink and tiled splashback.
This opulent, well-appointed kitchen with a French Provincial feel is perfect for those who like to entertain.
Boasting not only a huge living room, this traditional-style home also features a formal living room complete with open fire place and ornate mantle, the perfect place for a home library.
The current parents’ retreat features one generous sized bedroom with walk in robe, a living/dining area, ensuite and small laundry. There is ample space for a new kitchen subject to the option you choose from above and limited only by your imagination.
Outside the walls of the home is where this property really starts to shine. Timber sliding doors take you from the living room to an oversized, gyprock lined covered deck complete with downlights, the perfect place to entertain for even the largest of families. The kids will immediately fall in love with the built in cubby house set off the verandah, and mum and dad will enjoy being able to sit back and relax overlooking the large salt-water pool complete with rustic gazebo and outdoor toilet/shower.
Moving further down the property is where the real value can be seen. The large, three-door barn style shed (plus additional carport) is perfect for those with additional vehicles, boats and other collectibles. The mezzanine floor further emphasises the functionality and practicality, which you can come to expect when purchasing this property. Alongside the shed is a second entrance to the property, off Feld Avenue, perfect for keeping heavy vehicles away from the house and providing ample off street parking.
The quaint home office, located behind the pool and directly across from the shed, is yet
another amazing feature of this property. Nestled amongst the trees with 180-degree views down to the banks of the Nepean River, this space could be easily transformed to accommodate a variety of home businesses or could become his dream man cave. Featuring a Mitsubishi split-system air-conditioning unit, downlights and abundant room for storage, the possibilities for this space are endless.
Finally, the empty fenced paddock at the rear of the property is your own piece of rural land right in the middle of Camden – the perfect place for dogs, horses and livestock to roam freely on, or alternatively for the kids to ride motorbikes or simply play around.
Make sure to look through the detailed floor plan showing all the rooms and living areas.
