Illustrious St James Park Beauty – ‘Bankside’

One of the prestigious St James Park Estate’s original and most-admired properties, ‘Bankside’ c1872 is a beautiful sight with a magnificent heritage profile rising above a glorious all-seasons garden in Hawthorn’s pre-eminent family lifestyle precinct by the Yarra River. Sympathetically extended showcasing a superb John O’Loughlin renovation, this outstanding Victorian merges grace and grandeur with exceptional modern quality culminating at a landscaped entertainment oasis with heated pool/spa.

The majestic façade’s marble-lined return veranda seamlessly introduces an impressive arched hallway where the marvellous interior of tall period ceilings and marble open fireplaces conveys its rich history and family flexibility. Upstairs is a large parents’ retreat with ensuite, terrace and outlook to the Xavier Chapel while four further bedrooms (or three and executive study) include the original main with ensuite.

Adjacent to the living room, French doors reveal a sun-filled formal dining room with fireplace inglenook and direct access to decking that’s similarly oriented to the family/meals area capturing abundant natural light and garden aspects. A stunning granite kitchen boasts Miele and Neff appliances (double ovens) with a butler’s pantry and just outside is a covered BBQ area with rangehood in an easy-care garden setting.

Also featuring three bathrooms, laundry drying cupboard, hydronic heating, air-conditioning, alarm, double-glazing, data points, storeroom/cellar, 10,000l underground raintank and remote-control rear double garage; ‘Bankside’ presents a significant family lifestyle opportunity on a 981sqm allotment (approx.) close to private/primary schools, river trails, St James Park, train station, trams, Hawthorn and Richmond restaurants/shopping, Melbourne’s sports and entertainment precinct plus the CBD.
