Family Entertainer with Enticing Edwardian Charm in Prized Pocket

Peacefully placed on a tree-lined, period-perfect avenue metres from Fitzroy Street, this elegant 5 bedroom Edwardian offers family-focused luxury with two street frontages and convenience on your doorstep. Live the life you love and walk to St Kilda Beach, Albert Park and Acland Street with easy public transport access to Melbourne’s leading schools.

Free-standing and free-flowing over approximately 509sqm, turn-of-the-century charm is crystal-clear from street level. Beyond the home’s traditional facade, discover stately formal dining and lounge rooms, providing privacy and retreat under towering ceilings. Branching off from an arched, skylit hallway on Baltic pine, all five bedrooms are staged towards the front of the home, generous in size and serviced by a pair of sparkling bathrooms, one with a luxurious standalone bath. The large main bedroom comes complete with a fully fitted dressing room.

Enjoy the spacious and sun-filled comforts of open-plan living and dining, complemented by a high-end kitchen boasting stainless-steel Miele and Bosch appliances. The effortless style flows outdoors to an inviting timber deck alongside a lush lawn, presenting a whole range of dining and entertaining possibilities. Comprehensive features include a laundry and workshop, hydronic heating and split-system air conditioning, a remote-controlled garage with Park Lane rear access, an established garden complete with a 3000 litre water tank, automatic shutters, and a range of security features.

Key value-adding details authentic to this lovingly preserved period home include intricate timber fretwork, a number of ornate open fireplaces, colourful leadlight windows, delicate cornices, picture rails, ceiling roses and artistry, decorative roof embellishments, and an alluring bay window at the front of the home. Tightly held since the mid-80s, embrace a unique opportunity to upgrade with a contemporary renovation over two levels (STCA) if so desired.

The local neighbourhood plays host to a tempting selection of cafes and restaurants, all within walking distance. Breakfast at Fitzrovia, lunch at Miss Jackson Cafe, and sit yourself down for dinner at Lau’s Family Kitchen, before popping in for a nightcap at the iconic Espy. This is reinvigorated inner-city living with all the lifestyle benefits!
