Extended Californian with Ultimate Versatility

Designed to accommodate any growing family in absolute luxury, this grand period residence is sure to exceed all expectations with its expansive single-level floorplan, finest-quality features and established gardens all-round. The home's flexible floorplan offers multiple options and boasts an extra-wide hallway, five generous bedrooms (four with BIRs, master with WIR), two modern ensuites, equally-stylish main family bathroom and guest powder room (fourth WC). Add to this a wonderfully spacious central lounge/dining area as well as light-filled open-plan living/meals area at the rear complemented by a superb stone-bench kitchen with soft-close drawers, Smeg/Bosch appliances and ample cupboard space. Other highlights include ducted heating and evaporative cooling throughout, two additional gas-log fireplaces, high ceilings, lead-light windows, large laundry and adjoining linen storeroom. Step outside to a fabulous north-facing backyard garden complete with wood-fired pizza oven and undercover entertaining area, as well as sideway storage sheds and secure carport via gated driveway (both remote-controlled). An exceptional home made all the more appealing by its Preston West location with close proximity to Regent Village cafes and Gilbert Road trams, local parks and schools, Regent Station, High Street cafes and Preston Market.

Owners Notes

What we love about this home:

We have fully renovated 84 Regent Street and it is a lovely light filled, versatile family home which we have thoroughly enjoyed living in. We love the large rooms and wide passage.

The superb northerly aspect of the back-living area with its bay windows is heavenly in winter! Added to this are our 2 gas log fires which are warm and cosy. We have enjoyed operating a B&B (‘Regent Retreat’) in the front of the house and our guest book is testament to its success. We especially love our hand-crafted pizza oven and have enjoyed many nights making delicious pizzas with family & friends. We love the Californian Bungalow facade of our house and enjoy sitting on the front porch amongst the white roses in the summer months. The storage in our house is extensive and the WIR in the main bedroom is a dream, as is the walk in linen press in the laundry. We love walking around Edwards Lake, our local yoga studios and gym. We enjoy Regent Village shops & cafes especially The Audacious Monk with its Craft beer and fine wine selection.

What we love about this suburb:

Preston is a fabulous suburb to live in. We will be sorry to leave it!

The continually evolving Preston market is a weekly shopping haven and a meeting place for friends and family. Preston is only 9 km from the CBD and very accessible to it by tram and train. Going to the theatre, city restaurants or the football is easy. Our house is approximately 3 minutes’ walk to the tram and 10 to the station. Preston’s close proximity to the Metropolitan Ring Road and Tullamarine Airport is beneficial also.

Why we are selling:

We are moving to the Mornington Peninsula to retire!
