We have lovingly called our Californian bungalow home for the past three decades, and it has been a place of immense joy and countless memories. Here's what makes it truly special:
Upon first setting eyes on our charming Californian bungalow over three decades ago, we were captivated by its timeless façade, nestled on a serene and peaceful street. It's an address that combines the tranquillity of suburban living with the excitement of being close to Moonee Ponds shopping precinct and the bustling heart of the city.
Our home has been a sanctuary for our family, providing our boys with a wonderful childhood filled with adventure and camaraderie. Our spacious backyard has witnessed endless games with neighbourhood children, the laughter of bike rides along the street, and spirited soccer matches in nearby Ormond Park.
Our architect-designed extension, crafted with growing families in mind, added an abundance of space and multiple living areas. Our expansive living/ meals / kitchen has been the central hub for our family. The spacious kitchen is a haven for anyone who loves to entertain. Equipped with a large oven, ample counter space, and generous storage, it's a home chef’s dream.
The ambiance and comfort within our walls are evident to all who come through the door. The generous room sizes make it ideal for hosting intimate gatherings and large celebrations, both indoors and in the beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces.
A leisurely stroll up to Mt Alexander Rd and the vibrant Puckle St precinct offers an exciting array of shopping, dining, and cultural experiences. Over the years, these areas have evolved into lively hubs, showcasing a diverse range of cafes, restaurants, and boutiques.
Our location offers effortless access to public transport, with trams along Mt Alexander Rd, buses on nearby Dean St and Ormond Rd, and the Moonee Ponds train station nearby. Exceptional schools are within close proximity, making it an ideal location for families. Additionally, the nearby bike path provides a picturesque route leading to Docklands for gelato and dining or a scenic journey north alongside Moonee Ponds Creek, extending all the way to the airport.
Our carefully nurtured garden has been a source of immense pride and joy, with our lemon tree's bounty, the enchanting hydrangeas in full bloom, the graceful wisteria, and the beautiful weeping maple tree as its backdrop centrepiece. Each season brings a new layer of beauty to our outdoor space.
Our home has been a place of countless special moments and joyous celebrations shared with family and friends. As we embark on the next chapter of our lives, it's time for our beloved home to embrace a new family, who we hope will create their own cherished memories within its walls.
Our children have grown up, and it’s with fondness that we pass the torch to new homeowners, wishing them a lifetime of happiness and wonderful experiences in this beautiful home.
