Unique in every respect from first impression to flawless final detail, this 1880s period residence has been spectacularly transformed into a genuine four bedroom, three bathroom family home privately set on 600sqm (approx.) with a beautiful north-facing entertainer's garden with a swimming pool.
Nestled opposite the green expanse of Chris Gahan Reserve, all the glamour and sophistication that a renovated period home conveys is juxtaposed against a striking modern north-facing extension organically crafted from besser blocks and Armourply with internal polished concrete flooring that sits in perfect context with its cosmopolitan locale on the edge of Chapel Street's designer boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
Utilising glass to great effect, the interiors and outdoors function as one fluid space with lush landscaped gardens projecting a backdrop of greenery to the entire interior; while elegant finishes include Oak floorboards, handmade tiles, striking plywood joinery, banks of louvre windows and exquisite period detail including stained glass and leadlight windows and tessellated front verandah.
A beautiful sitting room with functional marble fireplace is wrapped in leadlight windows to the north and west filtering tranquil garden views and sunlight; while a north-facing dining room and separate family room open to the fabulous northern terraces and solar heated swimming pool through walls of floor-to-ceiling double glazed glass. The kitchen sits organically in the space with a reclaimed Blackbutt island benchtop complementing marble surfaces, farm sink and chef inspired appointments from a 120cm freestanding Ilve stove to a walk-in pantry and a door out to the gorgeous glass framed kitchen garden.
A luxurious main bedroom suite with comprehensive robes and blissful ensuite with lush garden views complements three further sky lit bedrooms, two with robes, and two family bathrooms, one accessible from the pool and one with gorgeous handmade herringbone tiles, amazing storage and a relaxing bath set beneath louvre windows.
Featuring right-of-way access to secure off-street parking and a brick workshop with a history dating back more than 100 years, the home is appointed with hydronic heating, split system air conditioning, excellent storage, fitted laundry and the extensive use of skylights.
A beautifully accommodating family entertainer, this sublime residence is within close reach of schools including St Michael's Grammar School, excellent transport options including nearby Windsor Station and trams in every direction, and walking distance to some of Melbourne's best dining and fashion, Windsor Deli, the Astor Theatre and parkland.
