MID-CENTURY MODERN GEM NEAR CBD
Sitting on a large, wide allotment, just down the road from bushland tracks and trails, yet only five minutes’ drive to the centre of the city, is this immaculately presented retro gem. Close to schools, cafes, sporting reserves and La Trobe University, the home features mid-century modern proportions and original details throughout, ensuring this move-in ready home is one of a kind.
Set back from the road on a quiet street, the paved driveway provides ample off-street parking in addition to a double carport. A stone-paved footpath leads to the front door, and a formal entry opens into a spacious and light-filled lounge and dining room. Beautiful detail, such as high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking native trees and an original copper freestanding solid fuel heater help create a wonderful space. Off this living area is a spacious master with two walls of built-in robes, a ceiling fan and refurbished ensuite. Another room off the living area would create a fantastic study, home library or nursery. From the dining area is a door through to a light-filled kitchen. This space offers good storage, including a utility room with laundry, and a door to the side yard.
The remaining side of the house is the ‘children’s wing’, featuring a second living space, just as spacious and light-filled as the first. Two further bedrooms, both extremely generous in size, each provide a ceiling fan and built-in robe. The original family bathroom is in pristine condition and this area of the house also offers a separate toilet and additional storage.
The side yard is accessible via both the kitchen and the kid’s lounge. This area features a fully-fenced inground swimming pool, lawn and a paved courtyard with BBQ area. The wide verandah wraps around the house from the side, all the way across the rear, providing year-round alfresco living. Glass sliding doors from the formal lounge lead out on the verandah and the elevated position offers views across the yard and to the trees beyond. The lower level of the garden features built-in garden beds with established natives, a fire pit and a vegetable garden.

Split system heating and cooling
Wood burning heater
Quality kitchen appliances including Smeg dishwasher and Bosch wall oven and four-burner gas cooktop
Inground swimming pool and pool shed
