Family Flexibility with Perfect Park Proximity
On a substantial allotment (approx 515sqm), moments from the open spaces of Clarinda Park, this gorgeous 5BR Federation-era home delivers an exceptional family lifestyle thanks to its expanded two-level floorplan, authentic elegance and quality enhancements throughout. Beyond the immediate allure of its picket-fenced garden and handsome facade, the home's versatile interior comprises a large master bedroom with WIR and private ensuite, together with four further bedrooms and two additional bathrooms. Further emphasizing its family credentials is a spacious formal lounge and expansive open-plan living/dining area complemented by a stunning new stone-bench kitchen with timber-top island breakfast bar, ample cupboard space and butler's pantry, as well as a Zip tap, underbench drinks/condiments refrigerator, integrated Bosch dishwasher and Bertazzoni 900mm cooking appliances. Ducted heating, evaporative cooling, high ornate ceilings, picture rails, 3 original open fireplaces in working condition, new carpets and solid timber floors all add to the appeal, along with solar power, large laundry, cellar/storeroom and additional under-stair storage. Bi-folds from the living area reveal an outdoor entertaining deck overlooking the sizeable backyard with extensive paving and established gardens, plenty of water storage in discretely located tanks, plus a remote-control double garage (via ROW) with adjoining workshop and drive-through option. In one in one of Essendon's most prestigious pockets walking distance to PEGS, Lowther Hall and St Columba's College, it's also close to riverside trails, local cafes and Essendon Station, as well as easy access to the vibrant shopping precincts of both Moonee Ponds and North Essendon.
