47 Wales Street, thornbury
An Exceptional Union of Thoughtful Design, Epic Position and Rare Opportunity
Few properties as delightful as this four-bedroom home in the backstreets of Thornbury – complete with storefront equipped with commercial zoning – offer the kind of opportunity this one does for a growing family and budding business.
Picture this: original dark oaky floorboards, splashes of exposed brick and deliciously high ceilings, plantation shutters and leadlight windows – the carefully preserved bones of a stunning Victorian-era home built in 1935 – all beautifully elevated to a new modern level while retaining the integrity of the original property.
The kitchen, bookended by the dining area and an exquisite outdoor courtyard, features stainless steel appliances (including a six-burner cooktop), mirrored splashback, full-length pantry and island bench doubling as a breakfast bar, all beautifully illuminated by two skylights above. Whether you’re dining inside – perhaps enjoying a lovely family dinner – or, through the glass bi-fold doors, outside – accessing your inner pizzaiolo via the woodfired pizza oven while entertaining friends – its thoughtful position makes preparing and serving culinary delights a breeze.
Opposite the kitchen the lounge resides a step down, still close to enjoy a bit of telly, but just separate enough to create a relaxing and wholesome space for having your children’s friends over after school.
A few paces away you’ll find the bathroom is both opulent and modern, with its floor-to-ceiling tiles and equipped with a luxurious rain shower and free-standing bathtub, toilet and enormous storage cupboard that will cater for the whole family’s bathroom amenities.
Throughout the bedrooms you’ll find various amenities, including built-in robes and even an original mantelpiece. Finally the master bedroom features a lovely bay window, the glass set with leadlight and shaded by plantation shutters, as well as a built-in dresser and floor-to-ceiling robes,
Final features include evaporative cooling throughout, split system, powder room, study nook and double car space.
The zoning couldn’t be better for a growing family and that business idea you’ve been thinking about. Not only will you be a hop, skip and a jump from Wales Street Primary School, but you also have the opportunity to transform the two front bedrooms – originally a corner shop – into your very own thriving business that, thanks to its position, is guaranteed to see foot traffic. Say goodbye to your stressful commute and hello to the epitome of ease.
On top of that, you’ll have all the benefits of the Wales Street shops, literally feet from your front door, and High Street’s eclectic emporia of shops, cafes and restaurants, plus seamless access to trams and Croxton Train Station, all a comfortable 10-15 minute walk away.
This is an incredibly rare opportunity. Will you seize it?
