Elegantly befitting its esteemed 'old Brighton' streetscape, just moments to Bay Street and neighboured by equally beautiful period treasures, this single-level block-fronted Victorian home retains all the charm of its bygone era complemented by modern living enhancements and indoor/outdoor connectivity to a delightful north-facing alfresco terrace and garden.
Privately set behind a picket fence with a lockable security gate, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom and two-living area home's façade is picture-perfect with an iron lacework verandah and stained glass front door surrounds. Inside, original Baltic pine boards, high ceilings with ornate cornices and roses, archways and fireplaces are complemented with fresh paintwork, plantation shutters and bespoke joinery. A long central hallway opens to a living room with a marble fireplace and three good-sized bedrooms including the master with a walk-in robe, and ensuite with a walk-in double shower. With timber countertops and shaker-style cabinetry, the fitted kitchen has an industrial edge with a Blanco gas cooktop and oven set in stainless steel benchtop and splashback. The light-filled rear open-plan living/dining zone with a wall of custom cabinetry opens via sliding glass doors to the recycled-brick paved alfresco dining terrace where classic, formal landscaping has created an idyllic, north-facing garden sanctuary. In the corner of the garden, a converted shed provides an additional bedroom or studio space. The home is also equipped with hydronic heating, and has a good size laundry, and the main bathroom has a built-in tub.
Just moments to Bay Street and its choice of shops, cafes, restaurants, cinema and station, this family friendly beachside lifestyle address is within walking distance to outstanding schools including Firbank Grammar, Brighton Grammar, St. James Primary, Elsternwick Primary and Star of the Sea College.
