Heritage charm blended with modern sophistication

SAMARANG Circa 1877

Displaying grand proportions mixed with a serene elegance only found in East Melbourne, this Italianate residence perfectly balances its original character with modern appointments. Spanning across three levels, this 4-bedroom home effortlessly combines formal and casual living zones, with spacious private accommodation. Filled with natural light and embracing decorative features, this beautiful home is spacious and sophisticated.

On entering past the established garden and tiled front porch, the arched front door with leadlight windows welcomes you to "Samarang". The wide hallway with timber boards and columned archway sets the tone for what's to come. A living room with Marble fireplace and soaring ceilings is well appointed with extensive joinery and Plantation Shutters. Moving through to a formal dining zone, again with Marble fireplace, to a modern kitchen. Spacious and bright with stone benchtops, Miele appliances, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, 2-pack joinery and large island bench, the kitchen makes the most of its central location. Further on, a casual meals area offers opportunities for relaxing with the family. From the dining room, a North facing sundeck provides the perfect place to BBQ.

Moving upstairs to a central stairwell and hallway flooded with natural light. A master suite sits at the front of the home, offering both peace and privacy. With access to the balcony, this generous space includes Plantation Shutters, plentiful built-in-robes and a modern ensuite with double vanities, walk in shower and stone benchtop. Next door, a second large bedroom also offers ample storage options. Two further bedrooms, one that would work equally well as a study, surround a family bathroom with large bath.

Back downstairs to the lower level, where a bright kids retreat is complimented by French doors opening onto a paved courtyard, perfect for entertaining. Here a double carport provides remote access to the wide laneway. The garden also houses a storage shed. Back inside, a large laundry with drying cupboard and powder room provides access to an underground cellar displaying original bluestone brickwork. The home also has hydronic heating throughout and an alarm system.

Enviably positioned moments from Yarra Park, the MCG, Fitzroy Gardens and the CBD, this stunning home does a superb job of blending its unique heritage features with modern lifestyle appointments in the heart of East Melbourne.
