Grand Golden Mile Family Sanctuary

The Golden Mile, beachfront cul-de-sac position of this expansive family residence with swimming pool and tennis court stands at the absolute elite end of blue-ribbon Melbourne real estate. Situated just footsteps to the foreshore, this substantial 1,242 sqm (approx.) property at 16 Cole Street represents a remarkably rare opportunity for the ultimate Brighton family lifestyle.

Secluded beyond dual auto gates and high-wall garden with its tranquil reflective pond and return driveway, the magnificent Federation-era façade of this extensively restored and renovated residence reveals a vast indoor-outdoor domain. A high, polished timber ceiling in the wide hallway extends to an elegant sitting room with its original 'ballroom' floor, a sun-lit home office and a sumptuous formal dining room.

Further at ground level are a large bedroom, bathroom, laundry and powder room, while adjoining the solid granite kitchen that's lavished in Miele appliances is a fireside family living and dining room. Multiple double-glazed doors open to an excellent entertainment terrace flowing directly onto a N/S flood-lit, Modgrass tennis court and tiled, gas/solar-heated swimming pool and spa.

Upstairs are five suitably spacious bedrooms (BIRs) with several spilling onto a return balcony with views including the main that features a marble ensuite and walk-in robe. There's also a family bathroom, 2nd powder room and lounge retreat with a bifold door to an elevated rear terrace. Other attributes include ducted heating/cooling, marble OFPs, speaker system, huge subfloor cellar, copious storage and carport.

This long-held, 11-room entertainer in a prestigious Golden Mile pocket is perfectly poised for now or grander plans (STCA) on one of Melbourne's finest, family-friendly streets just nearby the Bay Trail and Elwood Beach, Brighton and Firbank Grammar Schools, Martin and Bay Streets' precincts, train station and Elwood and Elsternwick Parks.
