striking extension frames edwardian house in modern light

Written by The ReReport

The renovated house at 137 Autumn St, Geelong West goes to auction on Saturday.

A TALE of two architectural eras are woven thoughtfully together at a renovated Geelong West house that takes quality seriously.
The modern rear view of 137 Autumn St is worlds away from its weatherboard Edwardian facade, set behind a traditional picket fence.
The circa 1915 house retains classic period features like decorative open fireplaces, Baltic pine floorboards and cornices in its front half.

Things take a more modern turn out the back where skillion ceilings and high angled windows draw light into a series of separate living areas.
Finishes like the granite benchtop in the galley kitchen and the marble and stone mosaic flooring in the main bathroom have been carefully sourced.

The main living area has a strong outdoor connection.

Double stainless steel ovens, a 900mm gas cooktop, slumped glass splashback, a dishwasher and parquetry flooring are among the quality fitting in the kitchen.
This central hub overlooks an open-plan dining/family room that flows out through bi-fold doors to a sandstone paved courtyard and a separate deck.

A paved courtyard is a tranquil entertainment area.

Other luxuries in the four-bedroom house includes a sunken spa with heat control in the main bathroom and a home theatre room with acoustic insulation and surround sound.

The property is open for inspection at 11am on Saturday, ahead of its auction at 11.30am.
Price expectations are $1.18 million to $1.28 million.
