100 Sackville Street, Collingwood VIC 3066
Spacious Edwardian, stylishly extended and superbly located
We purchased 100 Sackville St nearly 12 years ago and renovated it in 2010.
- A quiet street with lovely neighbours who have been here for 15+ years. The businesses across the street are closed on weekends so it’s very quiet.
- A large portion of the street is now permit only (something which local residents worked together to achieve) so that there is always parking available on the street for residents (and 1 x visitor permit).
- Close to lots of great cafes, restaurants and bars, plus 2 large supermarkets and countless shops.
- Public transport: Less than 5 minutes to trains (Victoria Park Station), trams (Smith St) and buses (Hoddle St & Johnston St).
- Parks and playgrounds: many a short walk away – Gold St playground around the corner, Gahan Reserve, Darling Gardens, and Victoria Park (an off-leash, enclosed dog park when there’s no footy on).
- City access: 10 mins by car, 15 mins by bike or 40 mins walk.
- Bike tracks: the Capital City Trail can be accessed just behind Victoria Park. Lots of bike lanes/routes between the house and the city.
- Collingwood Children’s Farm: only 5 mins by car / 20 mins walk.
- Childcare: Great childcare (Gold St) around the corner.
- Schools: Both Clifton Hill Primary and Collingwood College (primary & high) schools are 5 mins away. Collingwood College has an excellent reputation with people travelling from all over Melbourne to attend. Our kids have loved it and will continue to go there after we move.
- Close to major hospitals (St Vincent’s, Mercy, Eye & Ear, Epworth, Royal Melbourne, Peter Mac, Royal Women’s, Royal Children’s)
- Double glazing and north facing keeps the back of the house much warmer all winter
- Well insulated and centrally heated & air conditioned.
- We renovated to live here, so we carefully considered the fittings and appliances.
- The timber bi-folds at the rear open the whole back of the house up into the courtyard which is wonderful in summer and spring.
- The long hallway with multiple doors means that parts of the house can be ‘zoned off’ if you have children sleeping at the front and visitors/TV watching at the back.
