Shelter Real Estate
A grand family domain with Edwardian features, proudly sitting in the sought-after Gascoigne Estate awaiting its next life. This vast family home has been updated and is comfortable as is while retaining its unmistakable period characteristics. Soaring 3.3metre ceilings, original joinery, leadlight windows, unique painted Australian flora wood panels, hardwood floors and ceiling straps flow right through this awe-inspiring residence.
Instantly impressive, the home is welcomed by a double door wood panelled foyer with coffined ceiling opening onto two separate formal rooms each with ceiling straps and fireplaces. A large open plan living zone is illuminated by a wall of windows framing a delightful brick paved alfresco overlooking fragrant gardens. A quality wood kitchen, truly designed to be the heart of the family home, with Ilve cooking, dishwasher, extensive storage and stone benches.
Two ground floor bedrooms each with period details, are served by a central renovated bathroom with walk in shower and an additional guest powder room. While the first floor comprises a generous master suite filled with morning light, a walk in robe and sparkling bathroom and three further double bedrooms with robes are served by a family bathroom and another powder room.
This enormous home also features a surprisingly large wine cellar, fitted laundry, butler’s storage rooms in every nook and cranny, double auto garage with internal access adjacent to a fitted mud room and a staircase to an additional discreet room (easily an office or teenager’s retreat). With room after room, this rambling home is perfect for a large family seeking to restore this Edwardian beauty back to its former glory.
Take a short stroll to Central Park or Hedgeley Dene Gardens. Easy access to trams, shopping and cafes at Tooronga and Burke Roads Villages or Malvern Central as well as being close to elite schools including Sacre Coeur, Korowa and Caulfield Grammar.
