A magnificent design for family living

Elegantly renovated to provide a crisp contemporary ambience, this superbly proportioned terrace, over 40squares (approx.), is one of North Melbourne's finest residences. Filled with light and combining a mix of large and intimate living spaces, here is a superbly appointed home with a grand entrance hall and wide stairway, offering a splendid balcony bedroom/retreat with dressing room, marble tiled spa ensuite and CBD views; 3 further double bedrooms (one with balcony); delightful formal sitting room with OFP, impressively proportioned informal living and dining room flowing to an al fresco entertaining terrace with rain-sensor pergola; state-of-the-art kitchen (NEFF appliances and soft-close cabinetry); 2 well-appointed family bathrooms, fitted laundry and powder room. Including a brick-paved courtyard garden bordered by a 4-car garage accessed from Shand's Lane, this exceptional home close to public transport, cafes, parkland and schools (Zoned University High) features oak floors, custom and attic storage, ducted heating, split-system air conditioning and double glazing.

Owners Notes

What we love about this home:

We love the size and location of our home. We bought it because we couldn’t believe a family home could be this close to the city and a 7 minute drive to work. This house has served us well over the past 20+ years.

We have recently renovated the entire house and love the new interior design which gives the home a fresh, contemporary feel.

In winter, we love putting on a fire and curling up with a book in our cosy front lounge. In summer, we tend to use the large living and dining areas at the rear of the property. The automatic louvres installed over the deck provide shade and protection in all weathers, maximizing our use of this area. The double glazed sliding doors can be open or closed – depending on whether you are entertaining a large group or wanting to create a more intimate space.

The master bedroom is a beautiful, spacious room with elegant French doors and a balcony.  There is nothing quite like sitting up in bed at the weekend, reading the papers and looking out at the green trees in the middle of the city.

And last but not least, we love our large garage at the rear of the property. Over the years it has housed cars, furniture, belongings…a great spot.

What we love about this suburb:

We have seen many changes in North Melbourne over the years. Twenty years ago we felt that property in this area was undervalued compared to areas like Parkville and Carlton. We felt it was only a matter of time before this suburb would come into its own.

We live on a beautiful wide, tree-lined street close to a small park. In the summer months, the trees provide wonderful shade to the front of our house. We love walking down Dryburgh Street to the local parks and sports venues like the North Melbourne football club’s gym facilities. Our daughter walked to University High School.

We are very spoilt living this close to the city. We can see the tops of the CBD buildings from our lounge. We are a 5 minute drive from Carlton restaurants, North Melbourne cafes and the theatres, sports venues and shops in Melbourne. The 57 tram stop is a short stroll away and the airport is a 20 minute drive.

Shopping is going to become even more convenient with the building of a new Woolworths at the very bottom of our street.

Why we are selling:

Our needs have changed. In the last couple of years, we have retired and realized that, much as we love our home, it’s time to move into something smaller.

Any other information:

We have made some valuable additions to our home in the last 3-4 years.

  • The front living area was redesigned to form a small lounge and 4th bedroom.  
  • The downstairs bathroom was renovated and a shower installed.
  • Extra storage space was created under the stairs.
  • New and smaller double-glazed windows installed in the hallway.
  • Laundry was reconfigured with deep drawers and benchtops.
  • Kitchen was redesigned with new marble benchtops, cupboards, fittings and appliances.
  • Redesigned the rear living room to provide informal dining areas inside and out.
  • Roof space above the master bedroom turned into an attic. A hatch was installed giving access to the roof for repairs and maintenance.
  • New reverse cycle air conditioners installed in upstairs bedrooms.
  • 100% wool carpets for stairs and bedrooms.


Vendor Review

Fabulous result from Team Staver    

A million thanks from us to Arch Staver and David Sanguinedo of Nelson Alexander who guided us through the sale of our home of 20+ years in North Melbourne last weekend. Expert advice, excellent marketing and attention to detail hallmarked their promotion of this property which achieved a great result at auction. We couldn't have asked for a better service and outcome.
