Whole Site....This rare elevated corner allotment of 750m2 (approx.) with potential city views offers an inspiring future, with access from three streets, and broad dimensions of 16.5m x 45.7m. Currently occupying a sun-drenched 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 box-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.
Its prestigious and convenient location bolsters the tremendous potential of this site, 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.
A planning permit has been issued to subdivide the allotment into two lots
Lot 1, a 512m2 allotment to retain the existing home, and Lot 2, a 238m2 allotment facing Elphin Grove, to construct a new 2-3 bedroom home with north-facing outdoor entertaining, city views and garage. Bearing no planning overlay or title covenant restrictions, and with new Neighbourhood Residential Zone 3 restrictions which have been updated to allow for three or more townhouses or apartment development up to 9m, the site provides opportunity to further subdivide the 512m2 allotment (subject to council approval).
Be inspired by this property's 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.
