An enviable lifestyle awaits with this modernised Victorian entertainer.
A grand double-storey Victorian entertainer tucked neatly into one of Melbourne’s prized inner suburbs, ‘Girraween’ proves an enviable study in classic elegance and updated functionality for luxurious contemporary living.
Set well back from the street, enter the approx. 1190 sqm plot via a private and walled front garden and embrace an immediate sense of calm. Off the inviting, arched hallway sits the exquisite formal dining, sumptuous library, secondary living area and kitchen.
The latter delivers Smeg and ASKO appliances as well as HeatnGlo fireplace and contemporary cabinetry across a neutral white palette and continuation of Japanned floorboards.
Of the four well-appointed upstairs bedrooms, the master suite boasts WIR/dresser and luxurious modern ensuite with city views. A further bathroom and powder room can be found upstairs, with additional powder room on the ground floor.
Dating to c1883, classical ceilings abound here, so too marble gas fireplaces across the library, formal living and dining rooms as well as further modern musts such as hydronic heating, air-conditioning, alarm, video intercom and double-glazed windows.
The exemplary elegance of ‘Girraween’ extends across the rear and what is a delightful entertainer’s garden as lifted from the British countryside. The sun-soaked rear holds a huge deck, large grassed area and what is an established kitchen garden alongside a potager shed and remote-control garage with abundant storage.
Situated just 5km from the CBD, the property rests on the edge of the Grace Park Estate and within easy access to the elevated shopping and dining of Glenferrie Road and Kew Junction.
Nearby to trams and Hawthorn train station, so too parklands, the Yarra River and some of Melbourne’s finest schools, including Xavier, MLC, Trinity and more.
‘Girraween’ is a rare opportunity to own a property that affords not only an enviable lifestyle, but an updated slice of history that holds a tremendous sense of self.
