Moss Vale: Edwardian Entertainer in a Sought-After Beachside Setting

Graced with singular beauty, thoughtfully updated space, and elegant Edwardian-era grandeur, this irresistible 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom (plus study and home office) entertainer offers a commanding cornered presence in a peaceful beachside pocket. Crafted in 1910 by legendary Brighton builder Thomas Quayle, “Moss Vale” is steeped in turn-of-the-century charm, so close to Melbourne's most exclusive foreshore stretch.

Discover a relaxed yet refined dining room framed by a grand open fireplace, original shiplap ceiling, and bay windows directing natural light to every far-reaching corner. The inspired contemporary rejuvenation continues in a sun-filled open-plan living/dining area with an enticing glimpse of Port Phillip Bay. Spectacularly refreshed with a strong focus on quality, the transformation is complete with an all-new kitchen boosted by a pair of high-end Westinghouse ovens, an easy-clean induction cooktop, integrated Bosch dishwasher, integranted refrigerater and a waterfall-edged island bench topped by smooth Carrera stone.

The home effortlessly flows outdoors to a sunny poolside terrace boasting a Matador Artiste 900 Series BBQ with a teppanyaki grill and sink. Instantly inviting and ready for summers of fun, the real star of the show is a centrepiece swimming pool, complemented by a low-maintenance garden and lawn. Entertaining will be a dream in this house!

Exemplary rest and retreat is provided on two luxurious levels. A stylistic tour-de-force, the palatial main bedroom is staged on the ground floor, showcasing a dressing room and a twin-vanity ensuite with a stone-topped vanity and a rainfall shower head. Also on this level, a second robed bedroom is serviced by a bathroom with a standout freestanding bath and a fully tiled walk-in shower. Venture upstairs via a crafted timber staircase to two further bedrooms, the first-floor main with a sleek ensuite and a shiplap-encased home office or teen retreat with invigorating bay views.

Additional features include a work-ready study, large laundry with built-in cabinetry, a handy storeroom, secure keypad entry from Esplanade Avenue, extensive heating and cooling throughout, an app-driven irrigation system, two garden sheds plus a workshop, and so much more. The property is further enhanced by auto-gated entry to a rear carport and additional driveway parking.

Key details authentic to this Edwardian treasure include four ornamental open fireplaces, original Tasmanian oak flooring, handsome and high-gabled facade, traditional verandah entrance, artfully applied ceiling roses, towering shiplap ceilings and detailing, picture railings, intricate cornice work, bay windows, an arched timber hallway, and exquisite lead-lighting.

Beautifully balanced to meet the demands of a vibrant Bayside lifestyle, stroll to foreshore fitness trails, leading South Road schools, Brighton Beach Primary School, Were Street Village cafes, and direct platform access to Brighton Beach trains in seconds. Inspect to be impressed!
