Shelter Real Estate
You can’t buy peace of mind, but the outlook from the rear of this property provides the perfect setting for peace to settle upon you. Visible through the wall of windows extending the whole width of the rear, this treetop view is reminiscent of a country vista – almost unbelievable just kilometres from the CBD. Whether you’re looking for a family home, a potential project (STCA) or a place to create dream home, opportunity abounds.
The sensitive renovation of this magnificent original residence has created a large five bedroom two bathroom family home, full of rich individual character. Its grand original proportions retain their soaring pressed metal ceilings, bay and leadlight windows, the early OFPs and Baltic Pine floors that have served only a handful of owners since construction. Generously extended modern spaces enjoy an exhilarating elevation that allows living, dining and indoor/outdoor entertaining to be enjoyed against some the area’s most glorious views. Below, an ideal kids’ domain has been designed with three bedrooms, a stylish bathroom with separate powder room and a light filled retreat that spills out to a level lawn surrounded by established gardens.
Behind a wonderfully romantic return verandah, a wide hallway links four gracious original rooms currently configured as a sitting room, main bedroom and second bedroom, all with OFPs and a spacious study/third bedroom served by a central modern bathroom. Beyond, expansive open living and dining areas enjoy a Jetmaster fireplace, built in storage and a family sized kitchen that features Smeg cooking appliances, Asko dishwasher and plenty of storage, including a walk in pantry. French doors unfold for to a deep surrounding deck allowing full appreciation of the views. Other highlights include family sized laundry, ducted heating, split cooling, leafy landscaped gardens front and rear with shed storage and room for a pool plus multi OSP.
Enjoy a blue chip family position just a short walk from prized Camberwell South and St. Cecilia’s Primary Schools, Ferndale Park and Gardiners Creek Reserve with minutes to leading private schools, Gardiner Station and Burke Road trams.
