Garden oasis in Malvern East

Steeped in local history, this substantial 1890s three bedroom Victorian home with self-contained unit and a separate garden studio offers charm, character and space in equal measure.

Set on 888 sqm (approx.) in a glorious garden oasis, the red brick home is one of the last remaining 19th century homes in Malvern East. Believed to be the original farmhouse in the area, it was once surrounded by extensive market gardens. Today the garden is a sprawling family-friendly space with lush lawn, herb garden, an avocado and orange tree, olives and magnolias, and impressive indoor-outdoor entertaining areas.

The homes leadlight-framed entry opens to wide central hall leading to three robed bedrooms, a spacious and stylish bathroom and powder room. High decorative ceilings, open fireplaces and timber floorboards are all evocative of the era.

At the end of the hall, the expansive living/dining room overlooking the enchanting garden, guarantees comfort and character beneath a high vaulted ceiling. In the kitchen, a showpiece four-oven Smeg cooker, should appeal to the most fastidious cooks and entertainers allowing guests to watch the action gathered around the stone island bench. Entertaining should be a breeze here as glass doors open the rear of the home to a deck and private, leafy west facing garden with a series of garden rooms, and superb covered dining pavilion adorned with a grape vine. The garden also houses a studio, with original leadlight windows, thought to be a coach house and a one-bedroom, one bathroom, light-filled, self-contained unit with kitchenette and garden vistas.

With plentiful off street parking, timber shutters, heating, air con and double glazed windows, this one-of-a kind property is close to Malverns Urban Forest, Chadstone, East Malvern Station, Dandenong Road and with easy access to the Monash Freeway and schools.
