A townhouse for twirling

THIS Beaconsfield townhouse is on subdivided land but given the size of the place you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

You could twirl four cartwheels in a row in the main bedroom before running out of space.

And what a space it is—the entire western wall is glass: just turn over in bed to see over the balcony to Carnac and Garden islands.

Past the limestone walls and down the timber stairs, the 15-year-old character house opens up to an open living area with spotted gum timber floors.

A trestle table, long enough for at least eight people, sits in the dining room. In the kitchen there is a gas stove with a good-sized central burner perfect for a paella pan — ¡Salud! (Cheers in Spanish).

This three-bedroom home with a study is perfect for young couples, says Caporn Young tour guide Michael Harries.

He assures me the entire house has been repainted, the deck rebuilt and kitchen rewired.

The western wall downstairs is also glass, and sliding doors allow for the space to extend to the courtyard and garden.

The garden has a central frangipani tree and tropical elephant ear plants. An irrigation system has been installed, so it is low fuss. But the cream of the crop, I say, is the quaint wall crawlers and raised vegie patch near the turquoise-door entrance.

The carport can sport two cars but potential buyers with sports cars might want to test out their ground clearance on the access laneway just off Moran Street — it is a bumpy ride for low-riders.

The townhouse will be auctioned on site at 3pm Saturday, June 13.
