A rare opportunity for greatness on exclusive Scotch Hill
All the peerless lifestyle advantages of a highly-coveted Scotch Hill position are steeped in tradition, filled with exquisite character and imbued with the most compelling sense of opportunity in this superb, circa 1930s, 4 bedroom, clinker brick classic. Presented beautifully amidst the tree-lined grandeur of one of Melbourne’s most prestigious streetscapes, the home is perfectly at one with its environment, ready to be enjoyed now, to be cosmetically improved, extended or even re-built on its wonderful allotment of 694 metres (approx.).
With towering ceilings, fine detail, traditional windows and original polished timber floors, the home flows through a generous entry hall, past a formal lounge and a dining room towards kitchen / meals. One of the two classical fire places has been converted to gas, whilst the kitchen has been up-dated with more contemporary cabinetry, benches and a La Germania 900 mm stainless steel oven / cooktop to compliment its original bench seating.
The flow continues to a tranquil backyard, where a double garage has been opened-up to also suit outdoor entertaining. Additional features include two bathrooms, robes in 3 bedrooms, ducted heating, split system cooling and an overwhelming sense of opportunity.
Whether you fall in love with the home’s charming sense of tradition, or the opportunity to bring your own vision, this blue ribbon location is certain to reward your endeavours. Perfectly positioned for easy access to an impressive selection of elite schools, you have the Auburn Village cafes just moments away, city-bound trams within metres and the shopping precincts of Camberwell Junction, Glenferrie Rd and Tooronga Village all just around the corner.
