22 May Street, deepdene
Deepdene’s most captivating family opportunity
A grandly proportioned, double storey family residence, lovingly maintained by its original owners for nearly 30 years, this palatial, 5 bedroom home represents an irresistible opportunity in one of Deepdene’s most sought-after streets. Intelligently designed, beautifully balanced and absolutely rock-solid, this outstanding home offers wonderful scope for the discerning and growing family to introduce some of its own style to cosmetically up-date a genuine classic. Indeed, potential such as this is rarely found in such a blue ribbon position, near a fine selection of Melbourne’s most elite schools.
With a clear focus on al fresco living and entertaining, the kitchen / meals is a huge space with an easy and relaxed flow outdoors to a huge undercover al fresco dining area. With minimal effort, the functional here could be transformed into the spectacular. Continuing the flow, a family living room / home theatre is also connected to the al fresco area. For a greater sense of occasion, the formal dining is semi-attached to the kitchen / meals and a lounge room is big, bright and warmed by a huge open fire place. The bones are all here for a contemporary indoor-outdoor lifestyle and they can easily be refreshed to create an absolute dream here.
The master bedroom is a divine indulgence, set upstairs, with a luxuriously-sized twin-basin ensuite that also features a corner spa bath, plus a dressing room and walk-in robes. Meanwhile, conveniently, a guest bedroom / second master is positioned downstairs with generous built-in robes and a semi-ensuite bathroom. Also upstairs, the remaining bedrooms share access to a family bathroom and an open study nook, in this home that offers plenty of space for families to gather together, but also to be apart.
A double garage offers plenty of additional storage, whilst a huge, paved front garden can easily accommodate another 4-5 vehicles, whilst also offering plenty of secure space for children to play basketball or practise their skateboarding. Additional features include a family-sized laundry, ducted heat, cooling, ducted vacuum and a largely paved backyard with established fruit trees that are easily maintained.
Often sought, but rarely found, in the highly-prized Balwyn High School Zone, this is a superior position of family-friendly prestige in one of Deepdene’s most popular, broad and tree-lined boulevards. Just wander down the street to find the 109 tram route which can take you or your children to a wide selection of Melbourne’s finest schools, including Fintona, Camberwell Grammar School, and Camberwell Girls Grammar, plus you have Deepdene Primary School, the outstanding shops and cafes of Whitehorse Rd, Camberwell Junction and Kew Junction all nearby as well.
