MAJESTIC PERIOD HOME – CIRCA 1934
This magnificent period style home is the genuine article, restored to its original brilliance, yet enhanced to meet the demands required of today’s modern lifestyle. While maintaining the homes’ original characteristics the current owners have respectfully brought it into the 21st century without losing one ounce of character.
This exquisite property sits proudly on a slightly elevated block and comprises 3 bedrooms, with the spacious master upstairs with cast iron fireplace opening out to a balcony showcasing expanding views across Croydon Valley, this level also comprises a showpiece ensuite with double shower and hand basins, together with a fitted walk in robe.
Downstairs is light filled and boasts 11 ft ceilings, classic period cornices and ceiling roses together with solid hardwood flooring and original hardwood period doors with leadlight inserts.
The large open passageway accesses all rooms including a large guest bedroom with built in cabinetry, a living room or fourth bedroom with a cast iron fire place, a large and spacious dining area with cast iron fireplace and full over-mantle with a unique hand etched antique leadlight window.
Adjacent to this is a comfortable lounge area overlooking the exquisite designer kitchen and meals area with doors leading to a magnificent rear garden.
There is so much more to this wonderful period home designed to capitalise on natural light and through-breezes to cool the home naturally during the summer months. Fully insulated and boasting six star energy rating, it also offers ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling while the entire garden has been thoughtfully planted to ensure there is colour throughout the seasons and a watering system connected.
A surprise bonus is the separate powered and carpeted brick ‘home office’ or studio which predates the house and a perfect place for music enthusiasts. Additionally there is a large workshop attached to the double garage with generous storage and internal access to the home.
Sited in a top location within a 200 metre stroll to the hugely popular Wyreena Arts Centre, a hub of activity for all art and cultural events, it’s also an easy walk to Croydon Railway Station, Main Street shops and the upcoming Croydon Centro development. Local schools include Luther College and Yarra Valley Grammar.
This home has been brought back to life with love and attention to detail and there is absolutely nothing left to do but move in and enjoy the home of your dreams.
