8 Staley Street, brunswick
A treasured urban escape, Sunray is its name
With a front yard reminiscent of a secret garden, Sunray is an unassuming Brunswick hideaway that bears a congeniality and sense of Edwardian enchantment that draws you into its beautifully revived interior. With a veranda adorned in white roses and a generous front yard surrounded by tall, bushy olive trees, the encapsulated façade sets an appealing yet private tone for the rest of the property.
Inside, everything you would expect and desire from a period home has been brought into alignment with modern living thanks to a bright, crisp interior palette and contemporary additions. A long central hall with timber floors, high ceilings and subtle deco pendant lighting acts as the spine of the interior and evokes a sense of sophistication and grandeur. Off the hallway are three inviting bedrooms with exquisite fireplaces and a large formal lounge. The back of the home opens out into a contemporary kitchen and dining area with the rare addition of an adjoining sunroom, ideal as an informal lounge for quiet relaxation. Abundant in space, especially for Brunswick, the rear yard has two fully decked dining and entertaining areas allowing ample opportunity for afternoons stretched out under the shade of the olive, lemon and Japanese maple trees. There’s also a large studio that’s ideal for a variety of at-home workspaces or accommodating guests.
Only a one-minute walk away, the local supermarket has a deli to rival the nearby Mediterranean wholesalers (only a three-minute stroll in the opposite direction!), while the Sydney Road tram stop, only two-minutes by foot, allows for an easy commute into the CBD.
