Period sophistication meets contemporary luxury

The big picture.

Come on a journey which began a century ago and ends in a modern tropical oasis. With an impressively maintained 1920s façade, this two-storey residence sits in stunning 784m2 grounds. The manicured front garden flows through to a rear outdoor area which includes a pool and spa, pavilion, generous lawn and play space, separate paved barbeque area, lush foliage and our favourite, full-sized palm trees.

The finer details.

The residence itself offers a variety of complementary living spaces. An expansive, open-plan kitchen, dining, living area, flowing directly to the outdoors, is ideal for larger celebrations. Otherwise quiet time can be enjoyed in the generous, light-filled lounge with its high ceilings and open fireplace. The equally generous home office provides a serene workspace overlooking the front garden and benefits from natural light throughout the day. The final downstairs room provides flexibility and has been used variously as a dining room, guest room, playroom, bedroom and now separate TV space as family needs have changed over the years. Upstairs the master suite comprises a generous bedroom overlooking the pool and palm trees, ample built-in robes and an en-suite with free-standing bath. The family bathroom is divided into separate spaces for the shower, WC and basin to facilitate streamlined mornings and services the three additional upstairs bedrooms leading off the central landing, each with a walk-in robe.

The extras.

We don't think we could have chosen a more fitting address for this luxurious home. Standing on a grand, leafy street quintessential to this pocket of Hawthorn East, the residence lies halfway between Toorak Road and Camberwell Junction – you can enjoy Saturday shopping trips, Sunday brunch or films at the Rivoli before strolling home. Anderson Park and Burke Road trams are also just moments away.
