You're not just buying a graceful, family home laced in opulent splendour and set on an enchanting 536sqm (approx.) allotment landscaped to complement the home's timeless Victorian heritage, you're purchasing a piece of Melbourne's heritage.
Built circa 1890, few homes in the area can offer as much history and architectural relevance as this historically significant property, set on bluestone foundations with a wraparound terrace that frames calming parkland views. Rightfully so, it's regarded as one of Regent's most iconic residences.
There's also the prospect of making this heritage-listed home even more spectacular by actioning the approved plans and permits for a sizeable extension comprising an additional living area and bathroom. And given boundary approval has also been granted, you're truly saving time, stress and money thanks to the current owner's hard work and vision.
Soaring 3.5-metre high ceilings and decorative archways with corbels along the long and tall hallway combine with wonderful Baltic Pine timber floorboards and architectural elements from a bygone era to make a striking impression from the outset, while a generous offering of two separate living areas, three spacious bedrooms, two flawless bathrooms and excellent outdoor entertaining illustrates the sizeable character of this proud and stately home.
A radiant lounge is the epitome of class and elegance, equipped with a grand open fireplace with marble mantle and boasting the ability to seamlessly interconnect with the adjacent third bedroom to create an expansive open-plan lounge/dining arrangement.
Indoor-outdoor living, meanwhile, is a feature embraced by the vast open-plan living zone, which captivates with its showpiece American Oak timber kitchen (feature island bench, stone benchtops, integrated dishwasher and 1500mm ILVE freestanding cooker) and expands onto a North-facing backyard with an area for entertaining, neat lawn for child's play and carport with rear lane access.
Timeless travertine tiles and a gorgeous Apaiser freestanding soaker bath deliver a great deal of class, luxury and upmarket sophistication to the glamorous downstairs bathroom, while an upstairs bathroom with a frameless shower also delivers a stylish experience to occupants of the upstairs bedrooms one of which boasts brilliant city views.
Offering modern comfort, this exceptional residence also features hydronic heating, CCTV, security alarm, European laundry, study nook, cellar and plantation shutters.
As a future resident of one of Regent's finest homes, you'll also enjoy walking distance to Robinson Park, Regent train station and bus services for a direct commute into the popular High St dining and shopping precinct, along with convenient access to Preston Market, Northland Shopping Centre and schools.
Make no mistake, this is an opportunity of a lifetime.
