91 The Crescent, Kensington VIC 3031
Parkside Sanctuary On The City's Edge
Generous open plan living and dining zones bring a touch of contemporary freedom to a layout filled with classic character, each flowing ahead to the spacious and beautifully-appointed kitchen with induction cooktop, dishwasher, ample bench space and breakfast bar seating.
Capturing a scenic local vista from its cosy balcony upstairs, the master suite offers a luxurious sense of space with large built-in robes and stylishly renovated ensuite with floor-to-ceiling tiles to complete the package. 2 further bedrooms with built-in robes each serviced by a renovated central bathroom.
Step outside for something truly impressive - a fully paved and private courtyard serving as a perfect microcosm of your serene tree-lined surrounds. This spacious sanctuary is ideal for alfresco entertaining, bringing a little piece of the area's tranquil charm right to your own backyard.
The remote double garage offers secure parking via a private laneway at the rear, as well as access to a self-contained studio living space above with potential to serve as an entirely separate dwelling. Plumbing is already installed here for the easy addition of a kitchen or bathroom if desired.
Additional features of the property include ducted heating, evaporative cooling, split system to the studio, attic storage, under stairs storage and a downstairs laundry with a separate guest toilet.
Perhaps the most enticing feature of this picturesque location is your direct siding to the historic Stock Route - a now famous walking trail that leads through the open parkland of Riverside Park, across the bridge on the Maribyrnong River and into the serene Newell's Paddock wetlands and beautiful gardens of Footscray Park.
Central Park offers picnic spots and basketball courts right at your doorstep, while the Stock Route leads ahead through cobblestone streets and quiet reserves with the option to branch off into parks and sports fields, the local IGA or the friendly community garden. Continue further and you'll emerge at Newmarket Station and its central shops, cafes and eateries.
Also nearby are Kensington shops and train station, Flemington Racecourse and several popular local schooling options, with effortless access to the CBD via train, tram, Citylink or invigorating riverside cycling paths.
