In a blissfully quiet cu-de-sac, moments from Merri Creek parkland and endless trails, this extended Californian delivers an exceptional city-edge family lifestyle with its flexible floorplan, distinctive retro flair and abundance of natural light throughout. Over three levels, the home's inviting interior comprises four main bedrooms (all with built-in robes), versatile home office/fifth bedroom (with its own second entrance), dedicated study and two stylish bathrooms. Add to this an elegant front lounge with leafy outlook and spacious open living and dining areas accompanied by a versatile kitchen complete with Smeg dishwasher. Other highlights include ducted heating and split-system a/c, open fireplace (dining area), solid timber floors, upstairs balcony and ample storage spaces throughout. Step outside to a large undercover entertaining area complete with servery (from the dining area), wonderfully private backyard with established gardens plus the added advantage of a lock-up garage and additional driveway parking. All this in an exclusive Fitzroy North neighbourhood walking distance to Merri train station, St Georges Road trams and Holden Street buses, cafes and shops including Piedimontes, Capital City Trail and popular schools (Merri Creek PS, Fitzroy North PS, Fitzroy HS and Northcote HS).
