Picture this feasting on the fruits of avocados, apples, mandarins, blood oranges, limes, lemons, figs, pomegranates, apricots, plums, olives, feijoas, cherries, grapes, currants, strawberries, loquats and as many veggies as you can fit into six large raised garden bins, all grown in a bio-dynamically nurtured garden. Interested? Then come and visit!
253 Gooch St is a two-storey, four-bedroom home with oodles of charm. A free-flowing open-plan living area enjoys a desirable north-facing aspect and is kept cosy with a large wood heater, while the spacious timber kitchen is large enough to cook all the produce you gather from the garden and has plenty of storage for your pots and pans, too!
When you're in the mood for an alfresco dining experience, throw some logs into the large wood-fire pizza oven and enjoy pizza with friends beneath a star-lit sky. The north-facing backyard also features a potting shed and space for chooks, sink with hot and cold water, rainwater tank and a two-car garage.
Back inside, all bedrooms are of generous proportions and are zoned upstairs for added privacy and comfort. The main bedroom has a large walk-in robe and an ensuite, the second bedroom captures the northern sun in winter, while the third bedroom catches the sound of the wind in the trees and a chorus of birdsong. Enjoy city glimpses from the balcony, or calm your mind and reinvigorate your senses by enjoying a soak in the gorgeous freestanding bath, which forms the centrepiece of the fully renovated bathroom complete with a spacious walk-in shower.
A very large, light-filled second living area downstairs with a brand new gas heater also boasts the flexibility of a potential fourth bedroom/home office option.
This character-rich family home enjoys the benefits of a downstairs powder room, large laundry, polished timber floors, beautiful high ceilings with classically designed cornices, window roller shutters and evaporative cooling.
Adding further appeal is the premier location, which offers swift access to Fairfield's famed Station St shopping and dining strip, Holy Spirit Primary School, Penders Grove Primary School, Thornbury High School, Fairfield and Thornbury train stations, bus services, High St trams and eateries and the Darebin Creek Trail.
