A picturesque Victorian cottage has hit the market in the popular Melbourne suburb of Kew.

Offering eye-catching character details such as timber fretwork and bull-nose verandah on the façade, where this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1-car parking home really captures the imagination is through its renewed interiors.

Period purists fear not, after a stunning renovation, the interior has subtly retained period attributes through its flowing floor-plan, such as the arched hallway, refurbished fireplaces, plantation shutters, timber flooring and ducted heating.

Added to the home, the extension delivers a rear living domain, complete with a vaulted ceiling alongside a sleek galley styled kitchen fitted with stone bench-tops and premium Miele appliances.

Also here is a free-flowing indoor-outdoor through-line which sees the indoor living and dining area open to a tree-lined garden complete with a covered deck, built-in stainless-steel barbeque and drinks refrigerator –  ideal for entertaining.

Elsewhere, three bedrooms complete the home all with built-in robes –  with the main featuring a fully-tiled ensuite.

The home also features a modernised main bathroom and concealed laundry in addition to myriad storage options.

Moreover, the home is positioned to offer the best of Melbourne’s inner-city lifestyle. Moments from Eglinton Reserve or Victoria Park, Kew Junction shopping, Leo’s Fine Foods and Toscanos, cafes and restaurants, the lifestyle benefits of this pocket of Kew are there to be enjoyed.

Property is listed with Hamish Tostevin (+61 408 004 766) of Marshall White Boroondara. Price guide, $1.5m-$1.65m; marshallwhite.com.au/

Amid looming rate rises, there are reasons to be cheerful as mortgage holders head into 2023

Mortgage holders should brace themselves for more pain as the Reserve Bank of Australia board prepares to meet tomorrow for the first time this year.

Most economists and the major banks are predicting a rise of 25 basis points will be announced, although the Commonwealth Bank suggests that the RBA may take the unusual step of a 40 basis point rise to bring the interest rate up to a more conventional 3.5 percent. This would allow the RBA to step back from further rate rises for the next few months as it assesses the impact of tightening monetary policy on the economy.

The decision by the RBA board to make consecutive rate rises since April last year is an attempt to wrestle inflation down to a more manageable 3 or 4 percent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that the inflation rate rose to 7.8 percent over the December quarter, the highest it has been since 1990, reflected in higher prices for food, fuel and construction.

Higher interest rates have coincided with falling home values, which Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee says are down 6.1 percent in capital cities since peaking in March 2022. The pain has been greatest in Sydney, where prices have dropped 10.8 percent since February last year. Melbourne and Canberra recorded similar, albeit smaller falls, while capitals like Adelaide, which saw property prices fall 1.8 percent, are less affected.

Although prices may continue to decline, Ms Conisbee (below) said there are signs the pace is slowing and that inflation has peaked.

“December inflation came in at 7.8 per cent with construction, travel and electricity costs being the biggest drivers. It is likely that we are now at peak,” Ms Conisbee said. 

“Many of the drivers of high prices are starting to be resolved. Shipping costs are now down almost 90 per cent from their October 2021 peak (as measured by the Baltic Dry Index), while crude oil prices have almost halved from March 2022. China is back open and international migration has started up again. 

“Even construction costs look like they are close to plateau. Importantly, US inflation has pulled back from its peak of 9.1 per cent in June to 6.5 per cent in December, with many of the drivers of inflation in this country similar to Australia.”
