Single-level Victorian elegance with family flair

Metres from lively Bay Street in an unbeatable Brighton location, this picture-perfect, single-level 4 bedroom Victorian home irresistibly blends the contemporary flow of today with the timeless authenticity of yesterday.

Upon elegant verandah entry, discover an exquisitely corbelled and arched hallway branching off left and right with all bedrooms zoned to the front of the home. A versatile front bedroom currently being used as a home office could also be used as a formal sitting room, while the large main bedroom is substantially serviced by walk-in robes and a magnificent marble ensuite.

A luxe family bathroom makes excellent use of Carrara marble showcasing a full-size bath and handy twin vanity. Delightfully relaxed under towering ceilings, a formal lounge room flows through to remarkably roomy open-plan living and dining, a symphony of space and natural light. Adjoining this area, a marble-topped kitchen boasts high-end Miele appliances and a convenient walk-in pantry.

The generous use of glass emphasises the breadth of space with a wall of bi-fold glass doors blurring the boundaries between indoors and out. Step outside to an entertainers’ deck under a shady verandah, ideal for dining and lounging with friends and family. Perfectly proportioned with bamboo providing screening, this space will be used on a daily basis as a private sanctuary and outdoor room.

Beyond the traditional block-fronted elegance of this Victorian treasure, there is real function and flow at play. Comprehensive features include hydronic heating and air conditioning throughout, plush woollen carpets, secure alarm system, off-street parking, easy-care lawn, and a landscaped and leafy front garden charming the neighbourhood.

The home offers the full complement of period features including ornate timber-mantled open fireplaces, decorative cornices, original Baltic Pine boards, leadlight windows, a corbelled and arched hallway, soaring ceilings, updated slate roof, pretty picket fence, deep skirting boards, wrought-iron bullnose verandah, and a number of exquisite chandeliers complemented by intricate ceiling roses.

The exclusive address is second to none. Moments from the Bay Street shopping and entertainment strip, Brighton Primary School and Melbourne’s leading private schools, North Brighton Station, William Street Reserve and a short walk to the foreshore, this investment cuts across time.
