Delightfully deco in gorgeous garden surrounds
A spacious, light-filled home brimming with period features, “Kingsley” (c.1936) is a rare and beautiful Art Deco find.
This ground-floor residence is one of just two on the block, with its own private entry via a secure entrance foyer. The home is solid double brick, and features a characteristic Art Deco brick and render exterior, generous rooms with high ceilings, double-hung quarter-pane windows, and plenty of natural light. A large living room with a gas log fireplace opens via French doors into a separate dining room with stunning period leadlight window. There is also an ample kitchen, a large main bedroom and second bedroom with clever hideaway bed, and a central bathroom with laundry facilities. Freshly painted and recently refreshed with a new oven/rangehood, and with reverse-cycle air conditioners in each of the bedrooms, this house is comfortable, with room for further enhancements.
Outside, the professionally landscaped, green and leafy front garden has a paved area for relaxing with a morning coffee or unwinding at the end of the day. A private enclosed rear garden with a warm and sunny north-facing orientation is perfect for summer entertaining, or for family and pets to play. There is an automatic watering system, lock-up garage, and two additional on-street parking permits.
In desirable Glen Iris, this home promises a tranquil lifestyle that is also conveniently located near Gardiner Station, buses and trams, Monash Freeway for an easy city commute, Gardiner Park, Gardiner’s Creek Trail, Tooronga Village, vibrant Malvern Road cafés and bars, shops and excellent schools.
This beautiful, well-maintained and solid house offers a perfect mix of classic features and comfortable modern living.
