Old world charm on large allotment

38 Stanley Street, ORBOST


A throw-back to yesteryear, is this Circa 1920’s three-bedroom, weatherboard Californian Bungalow, sitting proudly on over a quarter of an acre of land (1042m2) and located close to the centre of Orbost, East Gippsland. The home was originally built as a Bank Manager’s residence and retains the classic features of its era. There are high ceilings with rosette centrepieces, decorative cornice, picture railings, ornate wooden sash windows with drapes and a covered in open fireplace with mantlepiece. Renovations over the years have added charm and value to this historic property.

The original kitchen has been replaced and features local hardwood timber, creating an inviting warmth and farmhouse feel. There is a gas cooktop, modern fan-forced oven and rangehood to compliment the storage, which includes utility drawers and a large pantry. There’s plenty of room for a dining setting or extra wall cabinets, depending on your family needs. Italian tiles cover the floors from front to back, through the living areas. The three large bedrooms are carpeted and open into a large foyer and hallway which also has additional storage. There is a central bathroom with shower and toilet and a second toilet and laundry, with storage, near the rear entry to the home.

Step into the lounge and living area to find a freestanding slow combustion wood heater and air conditioner which keep the home at a comfortable temperature all year round. Glass sliding doors lead out to an alfresco area with pattern coloured concrete flooring. A huge palm tree towers over the large low maintenance backyard and there is a chook shed, raised concrete vegetable garden beds and a water tank, ideal if you like the idea of having free-range eggs and fresh home-grown vegetables.

This home has lovely street appeal, with brick pillars and chimneys, shingled façade and new roof. There is a double carport, single garage and a covered fernery at the end of a long driveway. A large modern three-bay lockup shed at the rear of the property is perfect for all your storage needs. Take advantage of a second driveway on this wide street frontage for additional off-street parking or to store a boat or caravan. Leave the car at home and take a stroll to the local shops and sporting grounds, only around 500 metres away.
