Nestled amidst the prized period homes of Canterbury’s esteemed Hassett Estate, this 1920’s home’s rich character and impeccably renovated proportions provide a timeless forever family environment close to Middle Camberwell shopping, Riversdale Road trams and leading local and private schools.
Set back on a deep garden parcel with sun filled northern rear aspect, an enchanting arched façade introduces equally charming original proportions where high decorative ceilings, leadlight detailing and textured plaster walls add classical elegance to impressively generous dimensions.
At the rear, premium modern accommodation is delivered with meticulous attention to detail in large open plan living and dining areas, seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining zones, a superb stone finished Smeg kitchen, upstairs kids’ domain/retreat, workshop with sink and storage, and a versatile fully self-contained studio ideal for guests or work from home professionals.

Bifold doors unfold to magnificent paved entertaining areas that offer a woodfire pizza oven, built-in BBQ, electric café awning and water feature. A ground-floor main bedroom with luxurious double ensuite is complemented by a study/fourth bedroom with BIRs, family bathroom and a light-filled retreat generous enough to convert to an additional bedroom and living zone.
