There aren’t many opportunities to purchase one of South Yarra’s 1930s homes, so we’re already incredibly envious of whoever snaps this one up!
Beyond the beautifully maintained two-storey facade are recently renovated interiors completed by the current owner, the founder of Wash Studio. This renovation has truly elevated the home’s existing period features, while incorporating rich and sophisticated new materials. Among standout features are the Anchor Ceramics tiled surfaces, original 1800s door knobs sourced from City of New York public schools, handmade Moroccan tiles, custom bathroom vanities, and Christopher Boots lighting.
Custom, steel-framed doors link the meals area directly to the lush courtyard designed by Eckersley Garden Architecture. Residents can relax here among espalier apple trees, hanging vines and Queensland bottle trees, or entertain around the built-in barbecue. The garden also contains a separate brick home office, or fourth bedroom, with its own powder room.
The property is located almost exactly at the centre of South Yarra, putting it in easy walking distance of public transport, Chapel Street, Fawkner Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens. A true dream home in a dream location!
