With direct access to the lush expanses of Hyde Park, this mid-century residence boasting 5-bedrooms plus study, has been brilliantly updated by award-winning architect, Maggie Edmond, of Edmond and Corrigan Architects.
Offered for the first time in 40 years, this significant holding merges a surreal sense of sanctuary with a flexible floorplan to accommodate multigenerational living. In its privileged parkside position, near thriving cafes, shops and a selection of Melbourne’s most coveted private schools, the property allows easy access to the area’s many walking and bike paths, as well as local playing and sports fields.
Central to the house is a large open plan kitchen/ dining/ living area that is warmed by a working fireplace and flows to a glorious deck overlooking a garden with vege patch, cubby house, and the leafy park behind. A vast stone island bench creates a welcoming focal point perfect for the before-school rush or an evening drink, while the carefully planned kitchen offers generous space for food preparation and entertaining with two stainless steel dish drawers, an under bench Vintec wine fridge and Bosch coffee maker. An office/ study adds to the open space but can be closed off for privacy when necessary – highlighting the home’s extraordinary ability to create zones that are usable.
A second living area with its own ensuite and private deck can be independently accessed, offering families the flexibility of a rumpus room or retreat that can cater to the needs of teens, adult children, or multigenerational families.
Added highlights of this details-oriented residence include a double carport with EV compatibility, under house storage and wine cellar, plantation shutters and split system heating and air conditioning in all rooms, wiring for high-speed business grade internet, and a new (continuous) hot water system.
From its broad and tranquil tree-lined street, you can walk to wonderful local highlights including the anniversary trail, Kew Billabong and Yarra Boulevard, whilst the Mornington Peninsula is just two sets of traffic lights away via the Eastern Freeway and Eastlink. City-bound busses are a short walk, and Kew Junction with its trams, shops and restaurants is also nearby. Due Diligence Checklist
