Old World Class and SophisticationSteeped in history originating back to 1853, when development began on the decidedly needed Port Phillip Pilot Quarters, this classic three bedroom Victorian cottage offers a sentiment that simply cannot be replicated in construction today.
Proudly positioned in one of the villages most prestigious addresses, opposite the historic Queenscliff Fort and beautiful parklands leading you towards Port Phillip Bay, you will appreciate convenient access to the newly upgraded harbour and picturesque ferry rides across to the Mornington Peninsula.
Heightened ceilings are an immediate indication of the grandeur to come, with Baltic pine floorboards flowing through the interior, anchoring the classic palette while providing natural warmth. Modern additions respectfully enhance the original features of the home, kept at a bare necessity to amplify space and comfort. Multiple light courts bring the outdoors inside, filtering welcomed ambience throughout the halls and sleeping spaces.
The open plan living, meals and kitchen area is in keeping with the rest, offering modern appliances and an enviable butlers pantry. Original fireplaces are still in situ, highlighted by timber and marble mantelpieces with plenty of stories to tell.
With a northerly aspect, the abundant rear yard is a pleasant surprise, flooded with sunshine and boasting rear lane access via St Andrews Street. Double gates secure the property, gifting access to the driveway and single lock up garage, while a timber garden shed is a handy asset.
The uniqueness and newly found sophistication of this property cannot be understated and needs to be seen to be appreciated. We look forward to meeting you at inspection. Land size 491m2 approx.
