Period charm and modern luxury in peaceful, picture-perfect surroundsPretty as a picture in a setting of enchanting cottage-style gardens, this magnificently renovated c1920’s home provides a spot of serenity amid the bustle of city life. In a perfectly tranquil position towards the end of a beautiful no-through road, the expansive 970m2 allotment (approx.), offers privacy and appeal, while conveniently placed close to parklands, transport, shopping, and Melbourne’s best schools.
Like stepping into another world beyond a floral garden entry, the home flaunts overwhelming elegance throughout lavishly-sized rooms quintessential to its era. Gleaming Baltic floors lie beneath cool, 3.2m high decorative ceilings, each room embellished by an ensemble of brilliant leadlight windows and doors, cast-iron gas fireplaces, and ornate pendant lighting.

Introduced by a bright sunroom entry, the home offers formal lounge and dining rooms, complemented by a vast open plan area for casual engagements. Smothered in Tasmanian Oak, and flanked by glass, the open plan zone captures abundant natural light and verdant garden views, extending onto an elevated barbecue deck, against a soothing backdrop where a Liquid Amber takes central stage, and lemon, orange and mandarin trees provide delicious indulgence. The central kitchen, accessible to both dining areas, delivers a full-appointment of European appliances encased in extensive, cleverly-designed storage, and smartly topped in lengthy granite tops.
Each bedroom is separately zoned for privacy, the master suite enjoying original grandeur alongside the modern luxuries of fitted walk-in robe and ensuite. Two secondary robed bedrooms, including office desk to one, share a sumptuous family bathroom.
Cocooned in the year-round comfort of solid-brick construction, the home delivers modern comfort, including ducted heating and cooling, security alarm, built-in Bose audio, remote vehicle gates, 3.5kW solar electricity, garden shed, and a staggering 48,000 litres of rainwater storage connected to dripper and sprinkler systems.
