Timeless elegance meets contemporary luxury, paces from Kew Junction

Capturing the majesty of its c1890 Victorian origins in a spectacular top-to-toe renovation, this three or four-bedroom, two-bathroom home can only be described as simply stunning. Reinstating its romantic era with a perfect fusion of modern design and seductive interiors, the home propels luxury to all new heights. Situated at the cusp of Kew Junction, the home indulges convenience and relaxation, footsteps from tasty indulgences, daily conveniences, lush parklands, and city-bound transport, while at the heart of Melbourne’s most esteemed schools.

Glide into another world beyond a high brick fence, where a cottage garden and latticed bullnose verandah introduce an epoch where rooms were lavishly sized and beautifully embellished. 12-foot ceilings soar above boldly dark hardwood floors, enveloping marble gas fireplaces, intricate rosettes, and broad cornices, juxtaposed in perfect harmony by striking light pendants, elegant wallpapers, and sleek plantation shutters.

The original home accommodates three large bedrooms, each with customised built-in robes, including an extravagant master bedroom with a twee bay window and chic ensuite. The family bathroom is sumptuously dressed in travertine, indulging its guests with a deep soaker tub, heated towel rails, and verdant outlooks. A home cinema or sitting room oozes with relaxation, enjoying a wall of bookcases to while away the hours, offering surround sound cinema in remote-controlled darkness, while offering potential as a fourth bedroom.

The home’s modern addition flows poetically from the original home’s rear bluestone step. Its open plan layout integrates family and friends in grand style, spilling into two Japanese-styled courtyards with towering bamboo, and providing a north-facing deck for alfresco dining. The dazzling kitchen effortlessly caters to indoor-outdoor entertaining, providing a wide Ilve cooker and Miele dishwasher among abundant two-pack cabinetry and a butler’s pantry, while warmly hosting guests across a heated island bar.

Completed with a large laundry, guest powder room, and an oversized double garage with storage and cellar, the home epitomises contemporary luxury with hydronic heating, zoned reverse-cycle ducted air-conditioning, security alarm, remote blinds (internal and external), and BOSE built-in sound.
