This elegant Victorian residence, originally named "Elvira" and thought to date back to 1893, showcases a blend of Italianate and boom period styling and sits perfectly behind a wrought-iron fence in an iconic row of nine double-fronted Victorian homes within a surrounding period streetscape. Sympathetic renovations and a split-level rear extension have added superb family indoor/outdoor living and entertaining spaces flowing to sandstone paved alfresco entertaining areas overlooking a solar heated pool with a water feature. Complemented by preserved period attributes including tuck-point brickwork, tessellated tile return verandah, external arches, stained glass window, columns and a slate roof.
The interior is highlighted by high ornate ceilings, roses, cornices and picture rails plus light-filled rooms all adding to the exceptional liveability and ambience of this home with several "work from home" options. All leaving a lasting impression. A double-arched Baltic Pine hallway opens to a beautiful formal sitting room, two downstairs bedrooms, main with a stylish ensuite and WIR, a study, pristine family bathroom and laundry with a chute (from upstairs). Leading to a further two upstairs bedrooms with BIRs, a second family bathroom and retreat/study area. Through to a spacious family domain with sky windows and a superbly appointed granite kitchen with prestige Siemens and St George appliances. Flowing through French doors to the terraces overlooking the pool and garden - perfect for alfresco relaxation and entertaining. Other features include marble OFPs, ducted heating, gasFPs, R/C air conditioners (main bedroom, family room and upstairs bedrooms), ample internal storage including attic, 3,000ltr water tank & remote double garage/workshop with wide rear lane access.
A truly elegant Victorian residence gracing a tree-lined street in a quiet pocket of Hawthorn. Close to the eclectic Auburn Village cafes, shops and station, Glenferrie Road fashion boutiques, restaurants, Recreation Centre and Lido Cinema and station; plus Camberwell Junction and parklands; whilst many of Melbourne's finest schools as well as Swinburne University are all within walking distance - a tranquil oasis away from the vibrant inner city nearby.
