Classic a jewel of the street
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.
