‘Marguerite House’ Flawlessly Renovated Bayside Icon
Exquisite 1880s Victorian character has been strikingly up-dated with a landmark renovation, as it grandly presides over its exclusive streetscape in this solid brick, Victorian residence, merely metres from St Vincent Gardens and the village-like charms of Bridport Street. Zoned for Albert Park College, just walking distance from Albert Park Primary School and metres from the city-bound Number 1 tram, this free-standing, double storey home offers 4 generous bedrooms, a study, superb outdoor living and the rare privilege of a triple car garage. Within its imposing façade, 'Marguerite House' is an icon of the area, set behind a traditional fence of bluestone and wrought iron, with a flawlessly sculptured garden. Under towering ceilings of fine detail, a broad arched hallway reveals exceptionally well-proportioned bedrooms adjacent to a superb renovated bathroom. The master bedroom is a particular indulgence in which a pair of walk-in robes provides volumes of storage to compliment the luxury of its own ensuite and a balcony from which the towers of the city skyline are visible. Meanwhile, downstairs, an impressive suite of stainless steel Miele appliances ensure gourmet cooking in a stone-topped kitchen that is central to open-plan meals / living and a more formal semi-attached dining area. Seamlessly flowing outdoors to a Magnolia-surrounded and paved backyard, with an outdoor kitchen, the promise of an al fresco lifestyle is most compelling. Once the home's stables and now a triple garage accessed via Smith Street, there is room also for a workshop or rumpus area, whilst an impressive list of additional features include the peace-of-mind of secure video entry and CCTV surveillance, hydronic heating, refrigerated cooling and a Heat 'n Glo in the study. One of urban Melbourne's preferred positions offers you access to a café lifestyle, the waterfront, soothing parkland and the city itself. Land size 440m2 approx.
