“Fine Period Renovation with Family Appeal”
Make history with yesterday's finest design and today's respectful renovation! Architect-designed in 1942 and held by the original owner for well over half a century, this appealing three bedroom clinker brick home is an exceptional example of its time … now redesigned for modern family life.
Finely detailed with separate formal lounge and dining rooms (one with an impressive open fireplace, the other with mantle shelving), this first-class clinker-brick beauty is a showpiece home of the era with original timberwork throughout, etched-glass doors and eye-catching Art Deco light-fittings – all beneath decoratively corniced 3m ceilings.
Renovated with an eye to original architectural integrity with tall timber robes added in the large master bedroom, and Tasmanian Oak floors in striking Black Japan meeting plush new carpets. The home's contemporary amenities include a timeless Shaker-style kitchen-casual area (with matt-black Blanco 900mm range and Bosch dishwasher) and a brand new designer bathroom.
Designed for today's comfort with ducted heating plus new evaporative cooling, there's effortless entertaining on a sun-catching rear deck, endless rear lawns for kids to play, and plentiful parking on a new driveway to the original garage. Perfect as is, there's excellent potential for this lovely period home to become more perfect tomorrow – with space to extend into the big backyard and scope to rise to a second storey (STCA)… as suggested by existing attic storage!
Located for today's lifestyle within a short walk of Hughesdale Station (Zone 1), local cafes and shopping strip, and a couple of blocks to Hughesdale Kindergarten and Galbally Reserve, this period beauty has the best of today's living in reach – just minutes to Chadstone Shopping Centre, a short walk to many surrounding parks (including Duncan McKinnon Reserve) and in-Zone for high-achieving Hughesdale Primary School.
