Behind this home’s picture perfect Victorian facade is a sleek renovation and upper extension designed by Francis Wai Architects.
Walking through the front door, you’re immediately greeted by the original front bedrooms of the home, with period features and open fireplaces, followed by the bathroom, laundry and ornate formal dining room.
The rear of the home is where things ramp up! A new extension contains the light and lofty open-plan living room and sleek new kitchen. Sliding doors open to reveal a surprisingly spacious inner-city backyard with outdoor dining area, and a lawn surrounding a plunge pool!
The upper-level extension is a dedicated parent’s wing, encompassing the main bedroom with an en suite. An office (or fourth bedroom) sits opposite, which spills onto its own north-facing balcony.
Following a two year search, the current owners purchased this property in 2016, shortly after the renovations were complete. After five fabulous years here, they’ve recently relocated interstate, meaning this luxe family home is ready for its next chapter.
‘Gorgeous natural light floods the home through original leadlight windows, along with large windows opening to our little oasis of landscaped backyard. It feels like you’re a million miles away, but in the heart of Melbourne,’ they say.
Among their favourite features are the property’s electric double gates that allow off-street parking for two cars, and the heated bathroom floors – the ultimate luxury!
