Italianate elegance: A renovation of special distinction
This historic balcony terrace (circa 1865), boasting grand proportions and a 4-car underground garage, has been comprehensively renovated & extended offering an amazingly sophisticated & light-filled family living environment in the prime central Carlton precinct, minutes from the CBD and Lygon Street. Set behind a parterre garden, this remarkable home opens from a tiled verandah to a wide reception hall, leading off to superbly proportioned sitting and dining rooms. A seamless high-ceilinged extension incorporates a dramatic dining area with glazed ceiling and central courtyard plus an informal living room, open to a bespoke kitchen (Miele/Barazza appliances and custom cabinetry) with dumb waiter and adjoining butler's pantry. Flowing through tall iron-framed doors is a European-style entertaining courtyard leading to a separate studio/guest bedroom with kitchenette & ensuite. Staircases to front and rear ascend to the master balcony bedroom with spectacular ensuite and dressing room, two further ensuite double bedrooms and a mezzanine study/library. Including a powder room, large laundry, cellar and 4-car garage entered from Ormond Place. Other features include polished oak floors, gas log open fireplaces, zoned air conditioning and underfloor heating, intercom security and premium inclusions throughout.
