Steeped in a rich history, this striking Edwardian home offers lovers of period architecture the opportunity to bring this grand old lady back to her original splendour.
The home, which sits on 331m2 (approx.) and spans two substantial levels, offers all the period features you’d expect from a residence of this era. It boasts extra high ceilings with deep cornices and ceiling roses, sash windows, deep skirtings, an array of open fireplaces with decorative mantles and surrounds, timber highlights and panelling, and a breathtaking leadlight feature ceiling at the top of the home’s staircase. The generous floorplan offers a wide variety of flexible spaces that can be used as either bedrooms or living-dining zones, based upon your needs or desires; this includes a separate self-contained building at the rear of the main home. Currently, there are four kitchens/kitchenettes and four bathrooms, including one with a traditional Roman bath. There’s also a sizeable outdoor garden area that is a relative blank canvas, offering the potential to create an inviting alfresco zone for relaxing or entertaining family and friends.
The amenity-rich location of the home adds a further layer of appeal. You’re in walking distance of Jewell and Royal Park Train Stations, local buses and trams, shopping precincts including Barkly Square, a variety of cafes and restaurants, and a range of open green spaces such as Royal Park, Princess Park, and McAlister, Ransford and Ryder Ovals. You’re also in close proximity to Melbourne University.
This is a rare opportunity to secure a property with historical significance, so act without delay to avoid disappointment.
