A Landmark Beaumaris Beauty showcasing Colonial Style Elegance in Elite Precinct

One of the most admired homes in Beaumaris and loved by the same family for over 70 years. This magnificent Colonial residence within a private and tranquil garden beautifully embraces the grace and grandeur of an elegant mid-century era. An early and celebrated vision from architect John Mockridge of Mockridge Stahle & Mitchell in the early 50s, this grand dame's immaculate, untouched beauty offers a rare opportunity to renovate a treasured timepiece or extend on its extensive 890 sqm (approx) allotment, with the potential to capture panoramic bay views from a second-level extension (STCA).

Iconic with its distinctive green shutters contrasting against the white facade, this time-honoured dame welcomes a wealth of space within the entrance hall, showcasing the warmth of a time gone by. Original and expansive proportions allow for wonderful entertaining and cosy family gatherings, with separation between the formal and informal living and dining areas allowing an insight into the home's vibrant past. The lounge with a gas fireplace is a cosy place to gather, whilst the casual living room and exceptionally spacious formal dining room (OFP) extend to a fabulous rear garden for lavish entertaining in all seasons.

Light-filled accommodation upstairs comprises three bedrooms, including the robed main with bay glimpses, whilst two bathrooms over two levels, an external laundry and an authentic yet practical kitchen with electric cooking complete the layout. Savour the brilliance of mid-century architecture with a concealed built-in wet bar for the living room, a combination of floor-to-ceiling glass and double-hung windows, and an incredible amount of storage inside and out, including a powered garage/workshop and under-house boat storage. Offering instant comfort with split system heating/AC and ducted heating, this utterly beautiful home provides a rare opportunity to revive an architectural classic in a blue-ribbon location, just metres from the popular Beaumaris Secondary College, Balcombe Road shops and nearby the Concourse, the Royal Melbourne Golf course, the Black Rock shopping hub, beach and life-saving club.
