4 bed 2 bath 2 car

750m2 (approx.) of exciting opportunity! Permit to subdivide is imminent

Currently occupying a sundrenched corner position in a highly sought-after locale, this elegant Edwardian is filled with natural light, offering the grand proportions that were typical of c1910 architecture. The old world charm flows from the tuck-pointed double-brickwork, terracotta roof, chimney pots and finials on the facade, to the new gleaming polished floors, high decorative ceilings, lead lighting, and original cast-iron fireplaces inside, yet delightfully updated for modern living with a fully-appointed Bosch kitchen with stone benches and two modern bathrooms. Formal lounge and dining rooms soak in the north-facing aspect with lovely garden views, while a casual kitchen/dining room at the rear extends to an alfresco entertaining deck. Providing four bedroom plus study accommodation, including an expansive master bedroom with bright bay window enjoying a modern ensuite and walk-in robe, plus a luxurious spa-bathroom for the family, and complete with private entry from Elphin Grove to the home's double garage.
Bolstered by its prestigious and convenient location in the heart of Melbourne's most elite private colleges, while within walking distance to the renowned shopping and café district of Glenferrie Road where city-bound trams and trains are abundant and a leisurely lifestyle is inevitable, this rare elevated corner allotment of 750m2 (approx.) with potential city views offers an inspiring future full of possibility. New Neighbourhood Residential Zone 3 restrictions have been updated to allow for three or more townhouses or apartment development up to 9m, and bearing no planning overlay or covenant restrictions, the potential of this site is bound only by imagination (subject to council approval). The broad dimensions of 16.5m x 45.7m with access from three streets provides the site with tremendous scope, while plans have already been submitted to subdivide the property into two lots. Council has issued a Notice of Decision to grant the planning permit for a 512m2 allotment to retain the existing home, and a 238m2 allotment facing Elphin Grove, to construct a new 2-3 bedroom home with north-facing outdoor entertaining, city views and garage.
Be inspired by this property's inspiring future in a tightly held position, within walking distance to some of Hawthorn's best attractions including Rocket Park, Glenferrie Road's renowned shopping, cafés and restaurants, Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Glenferrie Station, and Melbourne's prestigious schools including MLC, Carey Grammar, Trinity Grammar and Xavier College.
