A beautiful blend of Edwardian charm and modern luxury in Maling Village
The simply enchanting façade of this c1900 Edwardian home veils a surprisingly spacious five-bedroom plus study transformation, flaunting a stunning fusion of century-old character and contemporary amenity, while offering lush garden views from every room. Set on a vast 1,012m2 site, the home is perfectly placed in the quaint Maling Road Village, among boutique retailers, cosy cafés, and city-bound transport, while enjoying immediate access to Melbourne’s most revered public and private schools.
Enveloped by 12-foot ceilings and gleaming Baltic Pine floors, the home is welcomed by a medley of five bedrooms, a home office and a formal lounge room, scattered with cast-iron fireplaces and ceiling rosettes, to deliver a relaxing, old-world setting to its accommodation level. Cocooned in hydronic heating and ducted cooling, the layout offers luxurious modern amenity, including a sparkling ensuite and fitted walk-in robe to the lavishly sized main bedroom, a chic mosaic-tiled bathroom with separate WC to the secondary bedrooms, and a wall of bespoke shelving and cabinetry to the home office.
The downstairs offers a casual, family-friendly layout, surrounded by lush alfresco spaces, including grassy areas for kids to play, a patio for alfresco dining, and a sundrenched deck for poolside lounging. Walls of sash windows fill the room with light by day, while at night, a two-way open fireplace warms the semi-segregated living and dining spaces. The kitchen is superbly placed to cater to en-masse entertaining over a hostess servery, providing quality Miele appliances among its abundant cabinetry, including a walk-in pantry with cellar to clinch the celebrations.
Completed with a surround-sound media room for kids’ retreat, internal and external guest powder rooms, plus an immense under-house storage room, workshop or studio, the home is a luxurious and private sanctuary teeming in Edwardian charm.
