Classic in any eraA gracious Victorian in excellent order with a rich heritage. Built in the definitive 1880's London architectural style with balcony and tessellated porch, trimmed with "gold rush" iron lace, elaborate plasterwork and stunning stained glass.
An imposing corner terrace, the wide frontage of this home settles easily into this quiet residential streetscape. As soon as you enter you can sense the excellence of the building itself; the stately original features and classical ambience. Natural light pervades every corner of this dwelling and thankfully the old does not clash with the modern-day facilities.
Downstairs comprises formal entry hall, spacious living room plus high-ceilinged dining room (Both with OFP's) opening to a modern kitchen meals area.
Upstairs you find the generously proportioned master bedroom and balcony, 2nd double bedroom (OFP), a study/3rd bedroom, new bathroom, wardrobes included.
The location near St Vincent Gardens, enjoys an historically consistent streetscape running down to Albert Park lake. Life is scrumptious in South Melbourne with the South Melbourne market and flourishing cafes servicing the terraced streets leading 2km's to the CBD with 3 tram routes to town.
This low-maintenance home is well kept and ready to be enjoyed. Enhanced by car access, secure alarm system, neutral dcor and refrigerated air con - all of this in one of Melbourne's finest suburbs. While the timeless style of this home means that there is fantastic renovation potential (STCA) for the budding DIY enthusiast.
All the Victorian terraces that can be built, have been. The scarcity of well-maintained period homes and desirable Emerald hill position bodes well for capital growth.
