House of the Week: 51 Veda Street, Hamilton

When Sally and Scott stepped through the front door of their home for the past eight years, they were pleasantly surprised.

From the street this dual-level residence is unassuming but walking through the private garden entryway reveals a different story.

Built 10 years ago to a design that ensured the 341 square metre gun-barrel block was maximised to its fullest potential, the home offers space, versatility and functionality in equal measure.

“It’s very deceiving; it’s unprepossessing when you close the gate,” Sally said.

“We had been looking for ages and, when we found it, it ticked all the boxes.”

Sally loves to cook and will miss the gourmet kitchen with island bench, five-burner gas cook top and walk-in butlers pantry. It extends effortlessly through open plan living to outdoor entertaining overlooking a solar-heated lap pool.

There is a separate teenage retreat or guest quarters with ensuite.

Windows optimise natural light while also offering privacy and the outlook from the main living area through to the lap pool is quite calming.

A double garage has internal access and there is a home office, fifth bedroom or theatre room situated separately at the front of the home.

Upstairs is another living space or rumpus separating two bedrooms at the rear and the master quarters at the front, which has a retreat, walk-in robe, luxury ensuite and balcony.

It is within walking distance of Beaumont Street and is being marketed with a price range of $1.25 million to $1.35 million.
