Clas­sic a jewel of the street

Herald Sun - Property - - STREETSCAPES -

A CAP­TI­VAT­ING pres­ence em­anates from this Ed­war­dian gem.

The bright weath­er­board fa­cade of the circa 1910 home joins sim­i­lar pe­riod homes in the leafy streetscape.

Kay & Bur­ton, Hawthorn, di­rec­tor Scott Pat­ter­son said it was a pop­u­lar street with a strong com­mu­nity feel.

“It’s one of the three main streets — Em­press, Guild­ford and Croy­don — that are well­known for all the young fam­i­lies that live there,” he said.

“Up and down that street there are sim­i­lar types of prop­er­ties but this one does stand out.”

Clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary styles come to­gether across the floor­plan, pre­sent­ing a time­less decor with tim­ber floors and crisp white walls.

The lay­out places the ac­com­mo­da­tion to­wards the front of the home and an ex­pan­sive liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen zone at the rear.

Nat­u­ral light pours into the liv­ing zone thanks to floor-to­ceil­ing win­dows and two sets of dou­ble doors that open out to the pri­vate court­yard gar­dens.

Miele kitchen ap­pli­ances, stone bench­tops and a gas-log fire­place pro­vide fo­cal points across the ef­fort­lessly styled en­ter­tain­ing space.

The deck presents an­other space to daz­zle guests, es­pe­cially dur­ing the warmer months.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion and bath­rooms are sump­tu­ous, start­ing with the main bed­room. There is a grand fire­place, as well as walk-in robes, a dual van­ity en­suite and ex­tra stor­age in the at­tic. The cen­tral bath­room stands alone with its pre­mium fit­tings, walkin shower and fully tiled walls.

Leave the car in the dual off­street park­ing space and wan­der down to the Union Rd vil­lage cafes, Mal­ing Rd precinct and train sta­tions.
