Relaxed Family Living, Elwood Style
Unique, picturesque and private, this 1915 period residence sits elegantly on 754sqm (Approx.) in one of Elwood's favourite streets within easy reach of the beachfront and Acland Street's cafe scene and provides wonderful four bedroom family accommodation wrapped in a substantial north-east garden.
The full spirit of the Federation Queen Anne style is displayed here from the eclectic façade with its multi-faceted hipped slate roof and chimney stacks to the interior illuminated with stained glass, bay windows, decorative cornices, fretwork and red cedar architraves.
The home has been sympathetically extended to maintain the home's character and warmth while creating a functional, light-filled family home that is very much in line with the relaxed setting and welcoming vibe that makes an Elwood lifestyle so special.
Open-plan excellence defines the family living and dining room filled with northern light and flowing out to the entertaining terrace with a wood burning pizza oven for fun weekend gatherings, an expansive stretch of grass for the kids to run free and a deep deck for quiet relaxation. The kitchen is designed for busy family life with granite and stainless steel benchtops, quality stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry.
A formal lounge retains its heritage air with a wood burning fireplace; while a large study or third living area flows out to the deck. Four large bedrooms are served by a period style bathroom and two additional toilets.
Comprehensive appointments include Queensland spotted gum floorboards, split-system air conditioning, hydronic heating, huge attic storage with integrated ladder, wine cellar, rear access via a laneway and 3x3 metre garden shed in a fantastic location close to the beach and walking trails, village shops, schools and St Kilda Botanical Gardens.
