The property is currently occupied by a substantial Victorian home largely untouched for many years. In a hidden sanctuary surrounded by well established, rambling gardens with magnificent mature trees; which originally formed part of the landholdings linked to Thomas Power an auctioneer, squatter and pioneer in 1840s. Built in the late 1800's the home is arguably one of the earliest farm homesteads in the area, when farmlands dominated the landscape in this part of Hawthorn. It now offers a prized opportunity for the new owners with imagination and vision to renovate and reconfigure the interior in keeping with today's contemporary living styles; or alternatively redevelop with the construction of a luxurious new family residence in a beautiful setting in which to create your home unlikely to be matched in the future (STCA).
The home is currently imbued with many period attributes, including high ceilings with roses and ornate cornices, archways, open-fireplaces and stained woodwork. With the flexible accommodation featuring an informal living room, formal dining and sitting room, library, studio or possible home office, three bedrooms, one attic-style, two period-style bathrooms, laundry and a country-style kitchen plus dining equipped with a stainless steel stove and Belling dishwasher. Other features include hydronic heating, kitchen wood heater, French doors opening to the garden and courtyards, two carports one with a right-of-way to Yarra Grove.
