Landmark, Enlightening Renovation in an Unrivalled Position

This property is open for inspection for private viewing by appointment. Please contact the agent to arrange a time.

Comprehensively rebuilt under the masterful eye of Techne Architects, this 3 bedroom residence presents a captivating synthesis of contemporary designer flair, state-of-the-art technology, superior energy efficiency and the home's exquisite 1890s brick Victorian facade. Boldly creating a clear distinction between the traditional and the contemporary, the home is filled with the light of its privileged northerly orientation and manages to balance an impressive sense of proportion with wonderful intimacy, in one of Melbourne's most sought-after positions between Albert Park Village and South Melbourne Market. Fully re-stumped, re-wired, re-plumbed and brilliantly extended, this is a recently renovated residence - still under builder's warranty - in which the attention to detail is impressive and the flow to open-plan living is most alluring. Upliftingly bright, with broad Mafi European Oak flooring under foot, the home culminates in an open-plan where the kitchen presents an inspired blend of the functional and the aesthetic. Italian Cararra Marble benches - cut from the one piece - are tastefully merged with a suite of the very finest appliances, whilst a Wolf oven, steam oven and cooktop are refined companions to a concealed Liebherr refrigerator, a black under-mount Blanco sink, black tapware and volumes of soft close cabinetry. As the open-plan spills lavishly outdoors to a paved, north-facing, courtyard that is shaded by a retractable awning, the home quickly reveals its al fresco entertainers' spirit, in which a fully-integrated stainless steel kitchen is surrounded by built-in bench seating.
Importantly, the renovation has been conceived with sustainability and thermal efficiency in mind. All garden areas are serviced by a 2000 litre under-ground water tank, whilst the home's northern orientation, double glazing and attention to air-tightness ensures winter warmth and summer cool. Just in case, however, a combination of central and zone-able hydronic heating, ducted heating and refrigerated cooling have also been utilised to ensure year-round comfort. The master bedroom is set upstairs to offer parents a welcome sense of sanctuary, with walk-in robes, terrific urban rooftop views and an ensuite in which the frameless-screened shower and independent bath evoke a feel of luxury. Like the ensuite, the central bathroom is fully-tiled in superior European tiles, fitted with Cararra Marble benchtops, Kaldwei baths and hydronic heated towel rails. Both remaining bedrooms are superbly appointed with huge robes that extend all the way to their towering ceilings. A central lounge has also been fitted with an abundance of wonderful storage and joinery including a vast built-in desk that again blends the aesthetic with the functional, ensuring the room can also be used as a study area. Zoned for the highly sought-after Albert Park College, this outstanding location also allows you to wander to an impressive diversity of cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife, as well as Albert Park Beach, Albert Park Lake, MSAC and a light rail that can have you in the CBD or Southbank within a few minutes.
