Stylish, sophisticated and a warm embrace of the past – this astute St Kilda entertainer perfectly melds contemporary living with period perfection.

From the alluring double-fronted street presence, this lovingly restored Victorian cottage offers all ease and elevated liveability across an updated set of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, replete with deck and lush, landscaped rear.

The open plan travertine kitchen boasts views to the garden as well as Smeg appliances and spills to a well-planned north-facing living area bathed in light.

Each bedroom (one featuring original brick fireplace) holds integrated BIRs/storage with the master owning an extensive unit of twin storage alongside a luxury ensuite.

The main bathroom features skylight and soaker bath, with other highlights including clever built-in storage, dedicated laundry room, split heating/cooling system, high ceilings, American Oak floors throughout and off-street parking.

Positioning here is equally desirable – in easy reach of the beach and local cafes, shopping on Carlisle and Chapel Streets and walkable access to trams, trains, Alma Park, Acland Street, St Kilda Primary, St Michaels Grammar and much more.

For auction Saturday March 27 with a guide of $1.55 – $1.6; buxton.com.au

Following on from the rate rise early last week, the weekend’s auction market remained resilient, despite a lack of listings reflecting the growing unease of sellers.

National auction volumes were lower at the weekend with only 1202 listings compared to last weekend’s 1543 and significantly lower than the same weekend last year’s 2100 auctions.

Melbourne’s weekend auction market saw another solid result, with a clearance rate of 62.1% — slightly higher than the previous weekend’s 60.5% but lower than the 71.7% over the same weekend last year.
