Magnificent Mid Century Home Awaits New Life


In a peaceful family friendly pocket, sitting proudly elevated on the high side of the street, this marvellous mid-century home offers endless possibility and potential. On 784sqm of land with a wide 20.1m frontage approx and a rear northern aspect (perfect for the modern floorplan), the choice is yours: renovate and restore, rebuild a new luxurious home or redevelop (STCA).

Currently a well laid-out home in need of some love, its mid-century soul is present in the form of shiplap wood-lined walls, slate floors and vast opposing windows furnished with linen curtains offering flow, light and a delightful breeze. Boasting dual living spaces comprising a generous living room zoned for lounge, dining and a fitted office, as well as a separate rumpus room all cleverly connected to a cheerful kitchen with terrific storage before spilling onto the lush grassed yard. Three bedrooms with robes are served by two bathrooms each with their own personality and a family laundry with yard access. Filled with light, the home also features RC/AC, gas heater and garage parking.

There’s no denying the location is idyllic; perfect for relaxing, entertaining or simply admiring the magnificent treetop views that overlook the valley. The low-traffic avenue is close to Gardiner’s Creek trails and Ferndale Parks with Glen Iris and Gardiner train stations and CityLink access close by as well as easy proximity to Camberwell South and St Cecilia’s Primary Schools plus excellent private schools.
