A delightfully unique and stylish architect-designed home sits beyond its restrained and private street setting. Situated on a large 406sqm (approx.) allotment (52m deep) stretching through to rear gates at Little Cruickshank Street, a brilliant transformation of this 1953 solid brick residence has resulted in an absolutely stunning, impressively flexible and luxurious indoor-outdoor family oasis close to the beach, Gasworks and Edwards parks, South Melbourne Market, schools and Bay Street shops.
Serenely set behind a high-hedged garden, the bluestone path leads to a spacious entry hall featuring a lush central courtyard garden accessed via an evocative formal dining room or retreat (or even a fifth bedroom). A hallway leads to an inviting, restful sitting room/library which includes custom cabinetry and an open Jetmaster fireplace.
Flooded with natural light throughout the day, the expansive open plan living and dining room features an open fireplace and, above the dining area, an enchanting light custom made by local St Kilda artist. Effortlessly catering to every culinary challenge, the sublime gourmet kitchen is appointed with composite stone benches, Miele appliances, double pyrolytic ovens, a stunning marble splash-back hand-crafted in Jaipur and an adjacent scullery with second dishwasher, sink and in-bench waste-bin. The living area opens through bi-fold doors to a covered outdoor living area with built-in barbeque leading to a beautiful landscaped northwest garden with parking for 2 cars via the wide rear lane. Versatile accommodation comprises two gorgeous downstairs bedrooms with a lovely family bathroom and chic powder-room, while upstairs reveals a generous main bedroom with lavish dressing room, balcony overlooking the garden and enormous designer en-suite/bathroom. A large attic-style space, with fitted study area provides a fourth bedroom.
Much, much more than meets the eye, this impressive home is fitted with a Control4 home automation system for security alarm, video intercom, CCTV, audiovisual, external blinds and high louvres and also includes hydronic heating, evaporative cooling, wine storage, generous laundry, generous storage, work shop, fully reticulated gardens and 2 water tanks.
