“Un-renovated Victorian in a Prized Albert Park Pocket”
The first time offered in more than 60 years, an almost unprecedented opportunity in what is arguably one of Melbourne’s most tightly-held pockets of prestige, between the village and the waterfront, this solid, Hawthorn-bricked Victorian residence is ready to reward your vision (STCA). Sitting grandly on bluestone foundations, the home creates a visually impressive, corner block presence, with entry and car access via Kerferd Place, to complement its iconic address, in the zone for Albert Park College.
Appreciate the traditional cast iron fence and latticework before entering this towering-ceilinged home in which a regal hallway arch and a quartet of open fire places all sit waiting to be reinstated to their former glory. Bathed in northerly light, the home’s rear courtyard points strongly towards an al fresco future, whilst a quick look at neighbouring homes also supports the case for upward extension.
Whatever you choose, the privileges of this location are extraordinary and destined to repay your endeavours. Bridport St’s village-like charm, renowned café culture, fine dining and great bars are all comfortably walkable, whilst Clarendon St is moments away, the beach is at the end of the street, Albert Park Lake and MSAC are within metres and South Melbourne Market is also very local. Importantly, access to the CBD, Southbank, the Arts Precinct has never been easier than that offered by the light rail.
