Glorious space…: 18 Hammond Circuit, Hopetoun Park, 3340

By Carole Levy

Built in the late ’90s to a high standard and with great attention to detail by the professional builder-owner, this terrific house on about 0.76 hectares is replete with updates that add considerably to its overall appeal.

Another great feature of this fine property is a pristine self-contained weatherboard unit with ramped verandah, a boon for extended family, guests or teen.

In the main house, bathrooms and kitchens have been hit with the revamp stick, with the new flooring that flows seamlessly through many rooms a bright star. Looking for all the world like matte floor planks in oaken grey, the floors are actually porcelain tiles that deliver today’s aesthetic plus all-time liveability. Big tick.

Entry to the house is to a long walkway, along which are the fitted fourth bedroom, set up as a study with expansive work station and shelving; and the main bedroom. This has a walk-in robe and a sleek and recently completed en suite with walk-in shower and a bowl-basin on a Caesarstone-topped 2pac vanity.

The walkway then heads past a lounge room under a soaring ceiling, with clerestory windows admitting streams of northerly light, new grey carpet and an Archer wood heater. Next up is the large kitchen and meals zone. A waterfall Caesarstone island bench, a stack of Tassie oak cabinetry, an appliance cupboard, dishwasher and an Ilve 900mm cooker fit out the cooks’ domain.

Living areas just keep coming … next door, behind double sliders, is a spacious rumpus room that has the same textured vertical blinds as seen throughout. A four-door closet in here is one of many storage solutions all through.

Along a rear hallway are two fitted bedrooms that flank a smartly revamped bathroom and a large storage-rich laundry with Caesarstone bench. Ducted heating and superior ceiling and wall insulation are other indoor features.

The meals zone opens to a large covered (north-facing) alfresco area, while a gazebo perches in the back gardens beyond a full-width, south-facing verandah.

The 20×8-metre shed/workshop, accessed via a separate driveway, easily meets tradie and hobbyist needs. A pair of double garages (one with internal access), a 5kW solar system and 25,000-litre water tank are other drawcards.
