A west-facing, newly-renovated Victorian home, just a stone’s throw from the bustling North Fitzroy village? It’s almost unheard of. Toss in a second storey, and not one but TWO rooftop terrace balconies, and you have something close to mythological.

Recently updated with a ground-up restoration and double storey extension, this semi-detached Victorian weatherboard comfortably contains three large bedrooms and accompanying washrooms behind its modest facade. Beyond the sleeping quarters, the ground floor contains an indoor courtyard, which filters light into the master ensuite and second bedroom, and laneway entry to a single-car garage.

The first floor opens up to a light-filled living and entertaining area, where the heritage proportions of this home have been elevated with a brand new kitchen, and suite of modern conveniences. Flanked by glass bi-fold doors, each end of the open plan room opens to a bluestone-paved terrace, the larger of which offers a generous outdoor dining space. Gas fireplaces have been fitted to the original brick chimneys, which enables rooftop dining all year ’round!

The enviable inner city dwelling sits adjacent to the Fitzroy North shopping strip, making it walking distance from local schools, cafes, shops and Edinburgh Gardens. With double glazed windows and a an underground water tank, this home is the perfect marriage of heritage charm, and modern living!

Are you the new owners of this home? See the full listing for 747 Brunswick Street North, Fitzroy North here. The home will be sold by James Pilliner and Sonya Laferla at Nelson Alexander via auction on Saturday July 25 at 12.30pm.
