A Charming City Californian... 19 Collingwood Street, The Wood

Honeyed tones, warm light, Welcome Home, and roses. The loveliest Californian bungalow I have seen in years, and just over the Collingwood St bridge. Its features-list makes it sound enormous, but it is not at all. Though fully renovated and perfectly proportioned to suit a couple, it has family capacity which is truly surprising. 

A sheltering front porch, timbered central hallway, four double bedrooms (master ensuite), two bathrooms, an embracing lounge with wood-burner flowing to a garden-side dining alcove glassed on two sides. The morning-sun kitchen overlooks a rear garden of raised beds whilst the house remains surrounded by white roses, lilies, screening ornamentals and the murmur of a single beehive.

She has two entrances, one off Collingwood St and drive-on from Cambria St to a carport and the first half of a freestanding tandem garage. The rear of the tandem meets the garden and has been closed and lined as an office, or a sleep-out, or a manic drummers practice room (just kidding). Here is understated authenticity, modern comfort levels, flat access, and the easiest amble to pools, river, and the central city.
