Taking its cues from Victorian-era inspiration yet entirely modern in its creation, this superb terrace home embodies the allure of the Ascot Vale lifestyle. Lofty ceilings and elegant polished timber floors enhance the floorplan's formal lounge and living/dining area beyond which the courtyard garden unfolds in an environment of absolute serenity. The kitchen, entirely stylish with Smeg cooking and extensive bench space, provides a great base for entertaining before leading through to the laundry and pantry/storage cellar tucked below the stairs. Given entirely to accommodation on the floor above, the beauty of two bedrooms' natural northern light is matched in the master by a private balcony that boasts glimpses today of the city skyline and will reward in springtime with a leafy streetscape. Shared bathroom, master ensuite and downstairs powder room identify comprehensive comfort, complemented by the inclusion of ducted heating throughout the home. Secure double garage reached from the rear laneway is the final flourish of a home poised to take advantage of Mt Alexander Rd's cafes and trams while keeping schools and the station within reach.
