One of Brighton's original homes, this 1888 Hawthorn brick Victorian offers rich originality combined with all the modern advantages of zoned living and streaming natural light. Set on a magnificent 1149sqm/12,368sqft (approx.) with two street frontages, there is an abundance of room to add a swimming pool or cabana, STCA, or simply enjoy the tranquil garden surrounds and beautiful backdrop.
The home retains perfectly preserved period integrity from the slate roof to the return verandah, towering ceilings with deep cornice work and multiple fireplaces.
A library with gas open fireplace provides the perfect study environment; while a large reception room with French doors to the garden and a gas fireplace offers a distinguished area for formal living and dining. Family living is flooded in all day natural light with a conservatory style dining area and a family room with two sets of French doors to an alfresco entertaining deck and the private rear garden. Integrated into the space is a granite kitchen with all the contemporary trimmings from an island bench to stainless steel appliances.
Sleeping accommodation caters to the larger family with four bedrooms, all with robes, the main with a WIR and European ensuite. The main marble bathroom includes a spa.
Other appointments include remote gates to a triple carport with a slate roof, polished parquetry flooring, reverse-cycle heating/cooling, alarm, 10,000 litre water tank, a family size laundry with access to a cellar with wine racks for in excess of 1000 bottles, a store room and under house storage.
