Offering a rare opportunity to acquire a slice of early Hawthorn East history with the purchase of "Fernlea" - thought to be an original farmhouse and arguably one of the earliest homes in the surrounding area when farmland dominated the landscape. Surrounded by lush gardens, graced by tall mature trees and the preferred north rear orientation, the landmark slate-roofed Victorian residence of generous proportions typifies the elegance of the Victorian era with all the charm of original period features, including an iron lacework return verandah, double arched hallway, baltic pine floors, ornate ceiling roses and cornices and marble fireplaces all carefully preserved.

The interior offers an outstanding opportunity to renovate, update and extend in keeping with today's styling and family lifestyles (STCA). The current accommodation offers a formal dining room and sitting room with bay window, four bedrooms, one zoned to the rear and two family bathrooms, one period-style. Through to a large family room incorporating a kitchen equipped with Euro appliances, butler's pantry, concealed laundry and a cosy adjoining den. All opening to a verandah and leafy rear garden with an external study, home office or retreat with a bathroom plus a garden shed and workshop. Other features include ducted heating, front double carport and rear right of way to a third carport. Also given the size of the allotment, the absence of Heritage Protection and rear access there is also potential to redevelop (STCA).

This gracious home is enviably located in the Harcourt Hill precinct, one of Melbourne's and Hawthorn's most prestigious residential areas near Rathmines Road and Sir William Angus Reserves. Within walking distance of several of Melbourne's finest schools and transport options; close to the eclectic Auburn Village cafes, shops and station plus Glenferrie Road or Camberwell Junction shopping, boutiques, cafes and Cinemas - it delivers all the lifestyle amenities families could ever wish for.

Land size: 776sqm approx.
