53 Elwood Street,
Period Perfection in Prized LocationShowcasing significant style and status since the interwar era, this substantial, broad-fronted 4 bedroom home’s period integrity (circa 1930) is meticulously matched by an inspired, contemporary rejuvenation.
Upon grand leadlit entry, discover all 4 bedrooms zoned to the front, generous in scope and impossibly elegant. The main bedroom, in particular, is a stylistic triumph, boasting an ornamental open fireplace and an intricately decorative concave ceiling that is quite simply a work of art. This spectacular feature alone is worthy of an inspection.
Take advantage of a versatile space currently being used as a study before the home spectacularly opens up to reveal the spacious, sunlit comforts of open-plan living and dining. A luxe stone-topped kitchen featuring Ilve and Bosch appliances is perfect for entertaining on any chosen scale and an instantly inviting timber-backed retreat will keep the children occupied when family and friends drop by. An adjacent formal lounge with integrated period shelving is an immediately relaxing room.
Enjoy effortless flow outdoors to an al fresco timber deck attracting northern light, presenting a whole range of entertaining possibilities, formal or informal. There is a relaxed warmth at play here, both welcoming and family-friendly. Anchored by an established Jacaranda tree, an adjacent easy-care yard is bordered by majestically manicured hedges.
In a house alive with style and personality, the main bathroom stands out with a delightfully ornamental arch providing a memorable centrepiece to a decadent bath tub. The home offers the full complement of period features including soaring ceilings, decorative cornices, elaborate leadlight windows, an ornate open fireplace, intricate ceiling craftsmanship and bespoke light fittings and chandeliers.
Superbly set on one of Brighton’s most prized streets, this picture-perfect, immaculately presented home is only a short walk to the Bayside splendour of Kamesburgh Gardens, Bay Street and Martin Street village shopping, public transport options, a range of leading schools and the beach.
