Victorian Grandeur Meets Modern Convenience In Primo Location!

On The Market

There’s no shortage of heritage Victorian homes in Melbourne, but not all of them have recently been renovated by specialist heritage architects!

Located on a corner block in the peaceful pocket of Fitzroy North in Melbourne’s inner-north, this grand family home that originally dates back to the 1880s is looking for new custodians!

There are few more rivaled locations in Fitzroy North than Rushall Crescent. This grand 1880s Victorian home is positioned in the most peaceful pocket of the suburb in Melbourne’s inner-north, adjacent to the tranquil Merri Creek walking paths (honestly, you’d forget you’re in inner Melbourne!), local favourite Edinburgh Gardens, the bustling St Georges Road + Queens Parade shopping strips and right by Rushall train station.

Recently updated and extended by heritage specialists Coleman Architects, three large bedrooms come off a wide entrance hallway, opening up to a new extension comprising a contemporary kitchen and living space at the rear of the home, flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows. The sensitive renovation preserves the aesthetic history of the home, whilst accommodating all the modern conveniences!

Overlooking the beautifully landscaped north-facing garden is an elevated undercover outdoor entertaining deck for seamless indoor-outdoor living (hello summer barbeques!), and secure off-street parking behind a remote control gate is accessible via the rear laneway.

Are you the new custodians of this heritage home?

Check out the full listing for 16 Rushall Crescent, Fitzroy North here. This home is being sold by James Pilliner + Luke Chisholm at Nelson Alexander by Off Market sale.
