108 & 108A Queens Parade, Fitzroy North VIC 3068
2 stunning residences: choose one or both!
Two styles of elegance meet in this exceptional property, where a classic Edwardian façade heralds a remarkable architect-designed transformation into two spacious residences on separate titles. Rebuilt in high-ceilinged contemporary style, the original home comprises a striking living/dining room flowing to a northerly courtyard with OSP and fitted al fresco entertaining; bespoke all-Miele kitchen with concrete benchtops; 2 double bedrooms (dramatic ensuite with freestanding bath and walk-in shower to main), study zone and 2nd bathroom/laundry. Luxuriously equipped, the upper-level apartment offers living/dining and galley kitchen opening to roof terrace with city views, 2 double BRs and 2 bathrooms. Minutes from the Edinburgh Gardens and Brunswick Street, this unique 2-in-1 opportunity features polished concrete floors, in-slab hydronic heating for downstairs, zoned and split-system air conditioning throughout, custom storage and state-of-the-art security.
What we love about this home:
As a young professional couple we designed and built a house that provides a perfect amount of space for entertaining and comfort living, whilst providing an additional income with the apartment upstairs.
We love the flow of indoor to outdoor living with the convenience of an alfresco that blends to the main living areas as well as providing adequate off street parking. A busy working life meant we also needed a house that was very low on maintenance.
The warm feel to a house that has so many creature comforts as well as several automation tricks and hidden secrets make everyday home life an experience, including this such as; electronic key pad entrances, swipe automatic exit door, separate intercom and alarm systems, automated curtain/blind systems and integrated in ceiling audio speakers.
What we love about this suburb:
Fitzroy north blends inner-city living with an outer suburb feel.
The close proximity to Edinburgh Gardens is perfect for exercising, a casual walk and picnics.
The cafes and restaurant culture all within walking distance, either Queens Parade village or Smith Street, offer a different experience every day or night you chose to go out.
Working in the CBD was so easy with excellent transport (tram) only 100 meters away, and the occasional 10 minute ride to work.
Why we are selling:
We have recently turned into a young family, with a few kids running around we now need a bigger space and seeking to purchase a bigger a house.
