53 Kerr Street, Fitzroy VIC 3065
Set amongst one of Fitzroy's most desirable treelined streetscapes, enjoying a breadth rarely seen within such proximity to Melbourne's CBD. Boastful in its intention, yet gracefully set back from the street, the stunning combination of hand carved bluestone blocks, raw marble slabs and precious tessellated tilework, set a fitting theme upon entering this 1880's masterpiece.
Built and designed originally amongst times of great prosperity to which success was displayed in design and showcased through a home's façade, it is only appropriate that its modern reimagination was one of equal consideration free of any restraint imposed by expense.
An arched entry lends way to two oversized bedrooms, 2nd with access to central light filled courtyard. Incorporated upstairs and accessed via retractable stairway, hides a tranquil space transforming an enormous roof line into a stunning accomplished 3rd bedroom or sunroom with excellent storage.
A centralised bathroom with euro-laundry functionally commands centre position bridging an imposing rear open plan space ideal for entertaining. A double glazed skylight row captures the suns entire movement and compliments an already coveted northern rear aspect by additional light. Retractable hidden blinds furnish glass and additionally supported by blackout and shade roller-blinds against the rear bi-folding doors. Modernised with hydronic heating throughout, centralized ductwork air-conditioning and premium European inclusions furnishing each space, the collaboration of these elements join to create one of Fitzroy's most truly captivating terrace homes.
To the left presents iconic Brunswick Street, leading to Gertrude Street, a short progression further down Kerr Street will arrive at an equally vouge Smith Street precinct - to the right offering direct public transport options to CBD and within equal walking distance to Rathdowne & Lygon Street in Carlton.
Secure off street parking at the rear via an excellent sized ROW access and the equally achievable prospect of further extension (STCA). Offering intimacy and grandeur, modern luxury and period grace as well as quiet zoned spaces or open cast entertaining, make this home incredibly universal and timeless in its appeal.
