Entry level Victorian destined for greatness
Entrance level Scotch Hill half villa Combines exquisite Victorian character with one of eastern Melbourne’s most exclusive settings, this solid brick, circa 1890s residence tastefully merges its original period style with a more contemporary, open-plan and al fresco flow. An exclusive Scotch Hill position in one of Hawthorn’s preferred tree-lined streets ensures that the home is not only brilliant for today, but also promises an even brighter longer-term future.
Under towering and finely detailed ceilings, the home highlights superb leadlight windows as it flows through a broad, arched hallway to a large lounge that is warmly arranged around its open fire place and is semi-attached to a spacious dining room. Like each of the bedrooms – one of which is enlightened by a remarkable bay window and two of which are enhanced by open fire places – the lounge and the dining are attractive spaces that instantly engage with an impressive sense of proportion.
The home’s flow continues to a more contemporary open-plan rear in which stainless steel Chef and Bosch appliances are sure to satisfy gourmet cooks, whilst double glass doors provide a seamless connection to the home’s paved rear courtyard. As it balances comfortable liveability for today with scope for cosmetic improvement, the home quickly reveals its al fresco entertainers’ spirit.
Additional highlights include front driveway parking, a powder room to service the living areas, ducted heating, a laundry and a huge store room, all on an impressive allotment of 421 square metres (approx.).
This blue ribbon location is within easy reach of the refined café culture of Auburn Village, whilst Glenferrie Rd and Camberwell Junction are both just moments away, plus there are city-bound trams along Riversdale Rd and the open expanses of Gardiners Creek parkland are at the bottom of the street. Importantly, Scotch College and St Kevin’s College are both comfortably walkable, whilst MLC and Xavier College are accessed in minutes by tram and an impressive selection of elite Melbourne schools are also very local.
