12 Lyons Street, carnegie
A taste of Art Deco class
Watching over the expanses of Lord Reserve since the 1930s, this loved Art Deco beauty has been witness to generations grow and move on, and is now ready to begin a new chapter. Delicate leadlight, sunburst & geometric motifs and intricate ceiling panels are among the evocative design elements that are still on show, but now a little weary it is more than ready for some attention.
Beyond the traditional porch, the home opens to reveal high ceilings, stucco walls and rich timber floors that flow through the cosy lounge with gas fireplace to the adjacent formal dining room which boasts an original fireplace. The eat-in kitchen is rich with nostalgia with its classic cabinetry, while the central bathroom was refreshed over the decades to offer a shower and sweet bath. Including three bedrooms, a laundry and separate WC, the period charmer comes complete with 557sqm (approx.) of premium land.
Sure to tug at the heartstrings of a "Decophile" who will wish to revive the halcyon days of those glamorous times, with a sympathetic update and considered extension (STCA) this could be the family sanctuary of your dreams. Ideally located close to Glen Huntly Primary School, this park-side position is also within easy reach of the shops, cafes and train station.
