Directly opposite the sought-after Howe Crescent Park, the architect designed light-filled renovation transforms this classic Victorian "Hazelwood Terrace" into a contemporary 4-bedroom family home. Originally designed in c1864 by Charles Webb, the esteemed architect of the Hotel Windsor, a stunning renovation by Anna Vaughan Architects perfectly blends original Victorian magnificence with contemporary design highlighting the distribution of light throughout the modern rear living spaces.
The sensational extension features an expansive kitchen, living and dining room with limestone floors and high ceilings punctuated by a dramatic double height void with skylight above. The interior design reflects beautiful high end finishes that are meticulously detailed: synonymous with a high quality custom architect designed home. The gourmet kitchen boasts Miele appliances, large island bench, and an abundance of custom built joinery with stone bench tops. An adjacent personal study overlooks the double height landscaped atrium. Full height stacking sliding doors seamlessly connect the interior space with the landscaped northwest-facing private leafy garden creating the perfect setting for indoor/outdoor entertaining.
Behind the stately Victorian façade, the traditional formal rooms are displayed through the arched hallway, elegant sitting room and library or 4th bedroom, with original marble fireplace and ornate ceilings. The beautiful main bedroom is complete with built in robes, balcony and lavish designer ensuite, accompanied by two additional bedrooms, a stylish bathroom and large first floor private sundeck offering leafy views and city glimpses.
In this tightly held pocket near Albert Park Village, South Melbourne Market and the Light Rail, the property includes reverse cycle air conditioning, underfloor heating, gas fireplace to rear living room, generous storage, alarm system and garden irrigation.
