Envisage a luxury showpiece of epic proportions with approximately 975 sqm of broad Brighton land in one of the area’s most prestigious beachside positions. This rarely offered site provides the opportunity to either revive a once grand Californian beauty, rebuild a first-class family home with every extra or redevelop a pair of high-end, side-by-side town residences (STCA).
Perfectly placed for development, the home proudly fronts Seymour Grove with a vast 21m northern frontage as well as the added benefit of side-lane access. This utterly blue chip location is another huge drawcard with its access to Were Street cafes, the Brighton Grocer and other handy shops, while also enjoying walking proximity to Green Point, swimming beaches, parks, the city train and some of Melbourne’s best independent and public schools.
The existing, 4-bedroom bungalow’s generous proportions, period details and garden surroundings may similarly inspire you to embrace the elegance of the era with a magnificent renovation. A traditional facade and enclosed porch introduce formal living and dining rooms graced with high decorative ceilings, boxed etched glass and clear leadlight windows, and open fireplaces (not in operation). The main bedroom and bathroom are in mostly original condition, while a functional kitchen and family room has been updated along the way. Also a self-contained area with kitchenette, lounge, bedroom and second bathroom.
The wide tree-lined streetscape of Seymour strikes a picturesque balance of spectacular new dwellings and beautifully restored period homes. The option to make your mark here with a contemporary rebuild, redevelopment or renovation is irresistible, while the promise of significant returns and the lifestyle rewards on offer are immense.
