A really lovely and charming house in the East Coast, on the fringe of Joo Chiat!
Tucked away from the bustle, but having the amenities within reach.
Land 1250sf Built 2200 approx. 2 bedroom plus a connecting room, 2 bathrooms, a study and a courtyard.
The original features of the house were restored to retain its charm. More works were done to restore than alter. The aim was to keep it as original as possible while maintaining the functionality. The spiral staircase is kept and it’s such a lovely thing to have in the house.
With its super high ceiling, the house is really airy and cool. The exposed timber rafters that run across the ceiling is a pretty uncommon sight in today’s new and modern houses. I can’t help but admire them.
The concrete floor in the living and dining and the open kitchen are reminiscent of a house in the olden days. It has a rustic feel to it. Kitchen has trendy white tiles and fuss-free grey floor tiles. It looks good and it’s easy to maintain. The stand-alone stove and oven is such a cool item to have! It not only looks good, it works well too! Kitchen opens up to the lovely courtyard. If you wish to enclose the area, the chic black & white bamboo blinds should do the job. Ooohh… and the 3 beautiful palm trees! They just take your breath away.
It’s nice to have your breakfast out there. That is totally my favourite spot of the house!
The laundry area is hidden behind the black & white bamboo blinds. Right next to it is a little store where you can keep your bulky items or anything you’d like stored away.
Also, there’s a bathroom for your guests.
Upper level has the original timber flooring. One bedroom with a connecting smaller room occupies the front. The back bedroom connects to a study and also leads to the bathroom. The courtyard could be accessed via the spiral staircase right at the back. The study has a nice view of the palm trees, which is really pleasing to the eye.
Great space for a couple or a young family of 3, perhaps?
Definitely a house you’d love!
Excellent location in the East Coast. East access to town, city, financial districts and the airport.
Available in September!
