Elegant Period Cottage in Unmatched Location

Effortlessly elegant and newly refreshed in a treasured neighbourhood, this enchanting 3 bedroom period home classically combines substantial space and contemporary style without compromising on period integrity. Just two blocks from Church Street in the heart of Brighton, this is privileged Bayside living in a special home alive with personality.

Free-standing and free-flowing, the turn-of-the-century charm is on full display from street level. Picture perfect behind a white picket fence and timber verandah, discover a traditional arched hallway entry under towering ceilings with original Baltic pine flooring underfoot. Two of the bedrooms are zoned to the front of the home, generous in scope and serviced by built-in robes and ornamental open fireplaces.

Renovate, elevate and extend if so desired (STCA), enjoy a central living and dining area with heating and cooling, a dual-sided kitchen, a sparkling bathroom with shower over bath, a large laundry, and a versatile third bedroom/study with French doors accessing perimeter of the property.

Step outside to a peaceful paved courtyard, basking in the northern light. Anchored by a majestic Maidenhair (Ginkgo Biloba) tree, this special entertaining space is also a perfectly private spot for a growing family, underpinned by off-street parking capability with a right-of-way bluestone laneway perimeter.

Key details authentic to this lovingly preserved period home include elaborate timber fretwork, exquisite leadlighting, artfully applied ceiling roses, three ornate fireplaces, dado panelling, and a handsome bullnose verandah.

The convenient address sells itself. Moments from Middle Brighton train station and Church Street’s specialty shopping and cafes, enjoy easy access to Melbourne’s leading schools, dog-friendly William Street Reserve, and the spectacular local foreshore. Inspect today!
