248 Koornang Road, carnegie
Superbly proportioned; supremely located
While beautiful Edwardian features - such as the charming classic period styling of the exterior, stained glass windows, dark-stained architraves, and splendid ceilings - were retained, this wonderful home has been judiciously and artfully enhanced and extended with a modernisation that provides lovely surroundings and every comfort for today's family. The decor is crisp white; presentation is stylish; and the sheer size and openness of this residence is a surprise. It provides accommodation for an extended family, if desired, and it is definitely a home for those who enjoy entertaining.
Off a central hallway, there are 3 bedrooms at the front of the house, along with a modern bathroom with a clawfoot bath and an old-fashioned ambience. A formal dining room or cosy 2nd living room has an open fireplace with timber overmantel. A huge open living/family room (including smart kitchen, and a slow combustion wood heater) invites family and guests to relax in extremely spacious surroundings with an outlook over a big covered deck to the pretty and private rear garden. But that's not all! There is another bathroom off the laundry, and there is a 3rd spacious living room with kitchen, and adjoining bedroom and ensuite. This area would be ideal for in-law accommodation or it could simply be additional space for the family.
Security alarm, ducted heating, evaporative cooling, cubby house, shed, ample off street parking - the list of inclusions is lengthy. Land size is approx. 792sqm, and this fabulous property is opposite Koornang Park, close to a host of amenities - trams, trains, buses, shops, cafes, Koornang Road shopping strip, reserves, parks, recreation - and handy to Chadstone and Monash Uni (Caulfield).
