Californian Beauty With Family Appeal
Available for the first time in generations, this ornate single-level 1927 Californian Bungalow set on 680sqm (approx.) is an exceptional three bedroom family home wrapped in private and mature landscaped gardens in a unique lifestyle position within minutes’ walk of trams, Glenferrie Road’s shops and cafes and Malvern Station.
Offering superb functionality and beautifully scaled interiors, the home is made even more memorable by its defining period features including a stunning entrance hall, decorative ceilings, ornate leadlight windows and French doors, original hardwood floorboards and open fireplaces.
Exquisite reception rooms include a sitting room with open fireplace overlooking the elegant double arched terrazzo verandah and front garden; while ornate cavity sliding leadlight doors link to a beautiful north-facing dining room set beneath a coffered ceiling.
A marble finished kitchen with double oven, Asko dishwasher, walk-in pantry and farm sink overlooks a casual dining room with French doors to a northern terrace; while a north-facing reading nook wrapped in louvre windows is an inviting space to relax. The three bedrooms are all exceptional in size, as is the largely original main bathroom.
What makes this home so special is the mature and well-maintained gardens that offer greenery, privacy, vegetable garden and an array of edible delights from stone fruit to citrus and olive trees. At its heart, a northern terrace with a pizza oven offers a wonderful suntrap and private space for entertaining. In addition, a double remote garage integrates a large cellar with wine racks for more than 1000 bottles and a study with separate entrance.
Further appointments include hydronic heating, split system air conditioning, alarm system and solar tube sky-lights to bring natural light into the core of the home.
So convenient to schools, Caulfield Park, trams, trains, Monash University Caulfield and the shopping villages of Malvern and Armadale, this bespoke abode combines lifestyle with family living in the most special of ways.
