“Pasadena”, means 'crown of the valley' and this classic Californian style double brick bungalow has undergone a complete transformation. The owner is a locally trained architectural designer who has worked in a Melbourne boutique firm and has utilised his knowledge & experiences to transform this home from a dowdy unloved property into a stunning four bedroom home, whilst preserving and highlighting the gorgeous period features. Set in a quiet cul-de-sac, the attention to detail in this renovation is evident from the moment you pull up outside. Every detail has been considered with the final design in mind - colour scheme, beautiful lead light windows preserved, and the sight lines from front door to the very back picture window drawing you inside. All four bedrooms are queen sized and the the beautifully polished oak flooring highlights the distinctive period architraves and skirting boards throughout, a key design feature of the original home and a core element of the design philosophy the owner has approached this labour of love. The open plan lounge/dining area is framed by floor to ceiling french doors drawing outside in and flowing onto the rear entertaining courtyard and into the seperate studio; ideal for those working from home or potentially a guest suite. The cutting edge kitchen is a key element in the design with the combination of dark and light surfaces, also leading through the french doors to the deck, which offers indoor/outdoor living at its best. Seasonal rooms and spaces are at the heart of this property; so entertaining or quiet contemplation from the rear deck, private garden with fire pit for the winter evenings or a party in the courtyard with friends are all yours at the whim of the mood or seasons. Privacy has been a focus for the designer with an additional electric roller door at the head of the driveway providing extremely easy access to the property and rear yard and then into the garage, again with remote electric door access, perfect for the winter and inclement days. Invermay is currently one of the hottest suburbs in Launceston with a mixture of classic period homes, however nothing comes close to this.
