An exquisite surprise in a prime family pocket, this 1930’s residence has been beautifully renovated to create a stunning French inspired family home close to popular parks, esteemed local schools and bustling boutique cafes. Rich early character and easy contemporary function define its spacious three bedroom proportions styled with chic French Provincial flair just meters from St. Cecilia’s and Camberwell South Primary Schools. Set in leafy for-mal gardens behind a secure high fenced street entry, refined original spaces retain their high ceilings, decorative cornices and solid hardwood floors in a now opened up layout where traditional French windows and doors add charm and grace to generous family accommodation.
Full of natural light and lush garden outlooks, a series of zoned free flowing spaces provide fabulously flexible family living as well as grand scale entertaining either side of a recently renovated contemporary kitchen. Overlooking the front garden, a divine living or dining do-main seamlessly transitions to large open plan living areas where the smart entertainers’ kitchen makes a strong statement with its undermount lighting, magnificent smeg duel fuel cooker and central stone island/dining hosting Miele dishwasher, copper sink and Zip tap for filtered and sparkling water. French doors unfold to a pretty garden patio and leafy deck for effortless alfresco entertaining before a sunny rear lawn garden and tool shed. Upstairs, an updated family bathroom serves two bedrooms with excellent BIRs accompanied by a palatial main bedroom retreat that enjoys WIR/storage, updated ensuite and glorious horizon views.
Amongst a list of highlights are a downstairs powder room and laundry, split heating/cooling, vegetable garden, auto garden irrigation, video intercom pedestrian entry and remote gated OSP for two. Relish an address renowned for its family focus with Ferndale Park, Back Creek walking and bike trails, Camberwell Road trams, Hartwell Station, Glen Iris Road buses and Leo’s Fine Foods all within easy reach.
