13 Yarra Street,
Light-filled Edwardian Grandeur in the St James EstatePositioned on a wide corner allotment with a lush garden entry, this c1910 Edwardian captures hearts through its lovingly-preserved architectural features, intertwined with the best luxuries of today. Positioned in one of Hawthorn’s favourite leafy locales, the St James Estate offers enviable access to the CBD and Melbourne’s most esteemed schools, while surrounded by parklands, transport, shopping and culinary destinations.
Beyond the quintessential white picket fence, the grandeur of this Edwardian is compelling. The exquisite tuck-pointed façade is framed by a terracotta roof and tessellated tiled corner-verandah, with intricate leadlight bay windows offering a hint of the elaborate period features within.
A sublime mix of yesteryear and today, the home offers exquisite family space for day-to-day living, while catering to extravagant entertaining through its multiple light-filled living areas and alfresco enjoyment including a heated saltwater swimming pool. Gleaming Baltic floors lie below high ceilings, meandering through a four-bedroom layout with three modern bathrooms. The master bedroom boasts glamorous elegance with a magnificent leadlight bay window and cast-iron fireplace, luxuriated by walk-in robe and spa-ensuite.
A central family living space replete with period charm offers versatile use as a private home office or library, flowing through to contemporary open plan living/dining flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows. The vast space caters to en-masse entertaining with built-in audio, spilling onto a sunny alfresco barbecue deck overlooking the pool. A stone kitchen adds practicality and panache with its glossy cabinetry and glass splashbacks, providing a full-appointment of appliances including wide Smeg freestanding cooker, and abundant storage including walk-in pantry.
Downstairs, a large studio provides exceptional options - an independent bedroom for teens or guests, a kids’ rumpus, artist’s studio, or gymnasium, and is complemented with bathroom amenity.
Complete with remote garage via Wyuna Avenue, this complete family package is just paces from Hawthorn Station, city-bound trams and West Hawthorn shopping, while surrounded by relaxing recreation including St James Park, Yarra River walking and cycling trails, and Bridge Road restaurants and cafés.
