Beautifully remade, this character home in the heart of Griffith combines historic charm with the very best in contemporary living. Originally built in the 1930s, this weatherboard home underwent extensive renovations in 2017, and the result is breath taking.
The soaring nine-foot ceilings have been maintained, along with the polished timber floorboards, fireplaces and charming picture rails. The new open-plan living, dining room and kitchen, with raked ceiling, maintains the historic feel while incorporating modern luxuries like polished concrete flooring with in-slab heating, evaporative cooling and designer lighting.
Each of the generously-sized four bedrooms includes built-in wardrobes, while the master bedroom boasts a private wetroom ensite. Both the ensuite and family bathroom have been beautifully updated with luxurious fixtures and fittings.

A separate living room in the original home boasts a period fireplace and makes the perfect break-away space.
