37 Kalang Road,
Contemporary class and Deco charm, with adventurous future appealA beautiful display of enduring Art Deco charm blended with contemporary amenity, this solid-brick, three-bedroom home delivers assured family success, positioned on a corner allotment with outstanding options for future renovation, extension or subdivision (subject to council approval). Its invaluable position amid Melbourne’s elite of public and private schooling delivers convenience and relaxation, with immediate access to Hartwell’s shopping, eateries and transport, while surrounded by verdant parklands and walking trails.
The quintessential elements of 1930’s Deco architecture are immaculately displayed from a wide entry foyer, where tall decorative ceilings, lustrous hardwood floorboards and joinery, and textured plastering are all lovingly preserved. Formal lounge and dining spaces flaunt the stunning intricacies of tapestry-brick fireplaces and leadlight picture windows, while recessed ceilings emphasise their decorative design.
A fully-appointed kitchen offers modern amenity, still sympathetically styled to suit the home’s retro grace, adorned with gleaming timber cabinetry and granite benchtops. The generous three-bedroom layout provides ample accommodation, including a central bathroom, laundry with WC, and sunroom/study, complemented by a sundrenched, north-facing alfresco patio for barbecue dining.
Situated on an elevated, corner allotment of 487m2 (approx.), within a General Residential Zone 1 with no arduous planning overlay restrictions, this property is replete with opportunity for now or the future. Perfectly positioned in a family-favoured area, renovate or extend the current three-bedroom layout while keeping its period appeal, or construct a luxury new home, or consider current concept designs for two contemporary town residences (subject to council approval).
Whichever path chosen, this tightly-held location will ensure family enjoyment, within a leisurely stroll of Lynden Park, Hartwell Station, Camberwell Rd trams, and Leo’s Fine Foods. Zoned for the esteemed public schools of Hartwell Primary, Camberwell High and Canterbury Girls, with abundant private college options in easy proximity.
