Amazing renovation of heritage home Seaview Villa – Coromandel

A property that catches your attention as you come and go from the township of Coromandel. You can not help but begin to imagine all that could have happened here over the past 100 plus years. The stories and memories held by this villa, the pages that could be written into the history of the Coromandel township.
 |  The Informer  |  ,

This Heritage listed home, constructed circa 1905 (Some locals maintain the original dwelling was actually constructed in 1895 ?), the once pride and joy of the Darling Family, who owned the home for five generations until recent times. It is now, reluctantly, but determinedly being sold by the current owners.

Just as you can see from the outside appearance, inside the home still displays all the majestic charm of yesteryear, but with modern love and care. Entering the home, you find yourself immediately charmed by the retained ambiance of the original build – high ceilings, grand mantels lovingly displayed over fireplaces. Now, of course one finds a modern heat pump system and heat transfer system to help keep the high ceiling rooms toasty warm in the winter months.

The time, money and love that goes into this type of work is clearly on display here. At the Eastern end of the home, a new kitchen enhances the chef’s experience with ease of use along with great views of the raised garden beds in the back courtyard, retaining a separate dining area for those more intimate family evenings.

A large decked area for those summer and autumn evenings of entertaining takes in the  the manicured raised vege gardens, along with a delightful floral display. This is out of sight of passers by – fantastically private.

The owners have made great use of the ample number of outbuildings, which include, two double garages, lined single garage sized art room/family – guest stays, carport, and hobby shed.

Having the home nestled into some 3748m2 ensures your ability to live with a sense of self-sufficiency with the ample gardens, or pasture at the rear to graze some small stock and freely running hens?  In addition, water storage assists with your water supply.

This is a great family home offering three bedrooms, separate living, separate dining, separate kitchen, sun room, two toilets and family bathroom, two double garages, carport, studio/guest accommodation, hobby/storage shed. This all comes with loads and loads of charm and character not to be found in modern builds.
