Edwardian charm & contemporary flair
Classically, captivatingly Edwardian in appearance and set in a delightfully manicured garden, this enchanting home charges to the lead in the Charm Stakes!
All the beauty of its period beginnings are evident in its exterior and in the extra high ceilings, the deep skirting boards, the bay windows in the front rooms, and several open fireplaces. But it is the contemporary update that earns it the biggest applause. Fresh paintwork of softest grey highlighted by bright white works beautifully with the stylish presentation, and the spacious open rooms, wide hallways and blend of formal and informal spaces create a tranquil, inviting ambience. The formal lounge room is at one side of the entrance hall, opposite the formal dining room which has a magnificent timber overmantel on the open fireplace. A study has built-in cupboards. There are 3 bedrooms of generous proportions - all with built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom has an ensuite and an open fireplace, and the large family bathroom has a spa bath. The big open family room is flooded with natural light and has a superb kitchen that impresses with its stone benchtops, glass splashbacks, glossy cabinetry, appliance cupboard, pantry, European appliances, gas cooktop and a breakfast bar. The private, pretty rear garden has a paved area for entertaining in the sun - or maybe for a game of basketball - and there is a sizeable verandah for undercover alfresco entertaining. Among the inclusions is a security alarm, ducted heating, extensive storage, plantation shutters, ample off-street parking plus a shed that could also be a garage. The property, which occupies an allotment of approx 743sqm, is located with easy access to both the Caulfield and Clayton campuses of Monash University. Walk to a number of bus routes, and to the shops, bistros, trains and amenities of thriving Koornang Road. It is convenient to Chadstone, a wealth of recreational activities, and parks and reserves as well as being in the zone for Lloyd Street Primary School.
