Art Deco Family Home (Circa 1947)!
TAWARRI is a two storey residence at White Hills which boasts a prime location overlooking Bendigo Botanic Gardens.
In 1947 the residence was designed and built by visionary Charlie Midgley for a local dentist.
Terry Clarke of Professionals said Tawarri bears more than a hint of post-war art deco styling and the sale presents a rare opportunity to own a unique example of Bendigo’s eclectic architectural history.
Tawarri has three living areas including formal lounge, separate sitting and a light-filled family room.
Kitchen updates include stone-topped work benches, Victorian ash cabinetry, free standing stainless steel range and multi-programmable Bosch dishwasher.
French-style doors are among the original features, as well as casement windows and genuine hardwood floors.
The home has formal entrance, central staircase, ensuite, bathroom, walk-in dressing room and executive-sized study (or fourth bedroom).
Most noteworthy are the upper-level bedrooms, each with a spacious balcony and views of the botanical gardens.
Terry said the home is on a garden allotment measuring more than 1000 square metres with dual access.
“There is potential for future subdivision and development, with council approval.”
The property has carporting, garage, work shed, crazy-paved patio and a 3.1-kilowatt solar system.
It is perfectly positioned near childcare, schools, transport, public pool, sport and leisure.
