Do not be fooled by the modest frontage, this home is bound to surprise you.
Situated on a large corner block (675m2 approx.), in a tightly-held neighbourhood and offered for the first time in forty years. With stunning living versatility, interiors that combine architect designed luxury with alluring Art Deco charm, this immaculate three bedroom plus study, two-bathroom beauty, with two generously-sized living zones is waiting to welcome the next family.
Careful thought and attention to detail went into the extension and renovation of this home, achieving a sympathetic blend of old and new.
The entry vestibule, with period features, provides access to the three main bedrooms and family bathroom. These rooms feature Art Deco ceiling roses, cornices, decorative woodwork as well as the high ceilings characterising homes of this era. The front master bedroom promises a designer ensuite with Hansgrohe Raindance triple jet shower and walk-in robe. Remaining bedrooms offer generous size. The eye-catching main bathroom has the original restored cast-iron bathtub and Hansgrohe Raindance shower with shower bar to make the little one’s experience pleasurable.
Further along, the vestibule flows into the heart of the home - the central kitchen, dining and main living area. The generously sized cook’s kitchen enjoys ample food preparation and storage space and is equipped with top of the range German appliances, including a Gaggenau benchtop extractor, Blum kitchen fittings and soft close cabinetry. A large island bench provides casual eating and connects the cook to the activity in the open plan living/dining area.
This gorgeous space, with a full wall of windows and polished hardwood floor has a north / west orientation designed to capture the sun. Retractable, stylish awnings and large silver weeping birches provide shade during the summer months. The ceiling height and window style from the original section carry through to the new.
A second living area, a home office/study and family-sized laundry are found beyond this central zone.
The second living area, equally spacious, can be used as an audio/visual entertainment area, formal living room, parents’ or children’s retreat.
The home office/study has built-in, wall-to-wall library shelves. It is a fully functional and connected space, ideal for those working from home. It is also a cosy spot in which to sit and read or gaze onto the serene garden.
The family-sized laundry has ample built-in storage and an extendable, wall-mounted clothesline.
Through double doors from both living zones, you walk out onto a large, alfresco entertainment area, easily accommodating a BBQ, lounges and dining setting for 12. A pergola with retractable awnings makes this area useful for meals and relaxation throughout the day.
All bedrooms and living areas have views into the established garden where an almond tree, camellia and climbing roses planted by the original owners almost 80 years ago still flourish, as well as weeping silver birches, a majestic magnolia, a native peppermint and tree ferns. Established hedges frame the property. If that isn’t enough, you’ll fall in love with the veggie box and automatic watering system,
To complete the package, there is a garage with a spacious adjoining workshop. This is well-equipped with natural light and storage along the interior walls and on the rafters. An automatic door provides security and ease of use. Alongside the garage / workshop is a large, paved utility area.
Other features include ducted gas heating, with separately controlled split system heating/cooling in the two living zones, built in Bose stereo and a home-to-base security monitoring system. The attention to detail means that there is consistency of materials – kitchen, bathrooms and laundry share the same distinctive tiles and tapware.
The Moonee Ponds Creek Trail is at the end of the road. Close by are Wylie Reserve, Royal Park and the Trin Warren Tam-boore wetland and bird sanctuary. Within walking distance are Grantham Street, Puckle Street and Sydney Road where you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to shops, cafes and restaurants. Public transport abounds with the No. 58 tram, 506 bus service and Jewel station. The Moonee Ponds transport hub is also close by and this widens your transport choices enormously. No excuse to be late for school as Brunswick South West Primary is across the road and Brunswick Secondary College is a short walk away. To top it all off, there is easy access to Brunswick Baths and Sporting Complex, the Royal Melbourne Zoo, Royal Park golf course, Brunswick Library, hospital/university precincts and Citylink.
All in all, this is inner north living at its finest!
