Enchanting Victorian allure and modern comfort in the Grace Park estate
Exuding the magical grandeur of its c1890 Victorian origins, 'Rockleigh' stands proudly in the esteemed Grace Park Estate streetscape. Hemmed by pristine sculptured gardens, and just metres from Glenferrie Road's bustling shopping and cafe precinct, the three-bedroom home enjoys ultimate privacy and utter convenience. Surrounded by the crème-de-la-crème of private schools, paces from city-bound transport, Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Grace Park, and every imaginable convenience, this is indeed an idyllic lifestyle.
A perfect fusion of its romantic era and modern amenity, the home welcomes guests into a glamorous interior enveloped by soaring 12-foot ceilings with hand-painted ceiling rosettes and cornices, and a spectacular display of wallpapers and frieze papers, and marble-swathed, cast-iron fireplaces.
A majestic, bay-windowed lounge room is showered in light by day, while cosying guests against the warmth of its gas-converted fireplace by night. Equally, the formal dining room sets a refined fireside ambience for vibrant dinner parties.
Fostering a casual indoor-outdoor setting, the family room offers exceptional space under a high cathedral ceiling, complemented by an adjoining meals area. Easing family dinners and vibrant entertaining, the fully appointed kitchen caters with a gleaming Falcon stove, serving dishes over a granite-topped island, and offering abundant storage including a walk-in pantry with an impressive 26m2 basement cellar.
Delivering an unparalleled sense of seclusion, the north-facing gardens offer alfresco dining and relaxed enjoyment among immaculate gardens including fresh fruit and vegetables, lush lawn for kids' play, and a tranquil pond and waterfall.
All three bedrooms nurture private sanctuary amid yesteryear's lavish proportions, each equipped with built in robes, sharing a modern bathroom in old-world style. A vast library or study is fringed by bookshelves, delivering essential flexibility with multiple uses, while the double garage, accessed via a right-of-way, provides a spacious mezzanine studio. Completed with a large laundry and second bathroom, the home is draped in modern comfort, including reverse-cycle ducted heating and cooling.
