Victorian grace and modern amenity, paces from Maling Road

Saturday Inspection via Appointment only

Reminiscing its glorious Victorian days with elaborate period detail in a generous three-bedroom, two-bathroom layout, this resplendent manor, Spenaque, offers immediate comfort and modern amenity alongside a host of possibilities. Its tranquil position underpins a relaxing family lifestyle, while offering ultimate convenience with Maling Road’s tasty indulgences, boutique shopping and city-bound transport just paces away, and access to Melbourne’s most esteemed public and private schools within arm’s reach.
Standing proudly amid the lush streetscape with a double-fronted, bay-window façade and lattice-work verandah, the home is welcomed by a beautiful leadlight entrance and elaborate hallway arch. Soaring 11-foot ceilings are decorated with ornate cornicing and ceiling rosettes, while a scattering of cast-iron fireplaces with marble mantlepieces create an aura of romantic opulence.
In lavishly-sized proportions typical of Victorian architecture, the three robed bedrooms provide space for rest, retreat and study, complemented by two modernised bathrooms. A formal lounge and dining room facilitates refined entertaining or easy relaxation, flowing from a central, fully-appointed kitchen, providing a wide freestanding Smeg cooker and plenty of storage. A large family room, and a sunroom flowing onto a vast alfresco deck with stretching northerly neighbourhood views complete the floorplan.
With ample parking via a private, rear laneway, and substantial under-house storage, Spenaque delivers enviable opportunities for a lavish renovation to bring it into the luxury of 21st century living, or for a contemporary extension with north-facing indoor-outdoor living (subject to council approval).
