Elegant Victorian terrace in a blue ribbon Carlton enclave

Offered for the first time in 50 years, this elegant Victorian terrace showcases a special family lifestyle in this blue chip & very tightly held city fringe location. The deceptively spacious & flexible accommodation combine with its updated interiors and period splendour to provide a fabulous living environment all within a short stroll to the beautiful Carlton Gardens, cosmopolitan Lygon Street & Brunswick Street restaurants/cafes, Melbourne Uni, hospitals and the CBD. Past the striking lattice facade is a front sitting/reading room off the hall, central living room, stunning dining room leading to a modern granite kitchen with island bench, stainless steel European appliances plus direct access to the laundry & separate powder room. French doors lead to an exquisite light filled glass conservatory overlooking idyllic framed established gardens and bluestone paved courtyard that leads to an original coach house, now being used as a garage & workshop with access from rear ROW. Upstairs are four bedrooms (two with built-in robes) including the master with a glorious front balcony, a bright three-zoned bathroom and a huge top floor teenager retreat/possible 5th bedroom with extensive storage. This quality property features ducted heating, split system a/c, wine storage, soaring ceilings, picture rails, access to numerous transport options & much more. An irresistible buying opportunity to secure a rare offering in this highly sought-after inner-city pocket & within the Uni High school zone. Nelson Alexander Pty Ltd

Owners Notes

  • We have enjoyed the garden in ALL weathers (except extreme heat or cold) due to the conservatory.
  • Due to its close proximity, our family has used the Carlton Gardens a lot. This has constituted an extension to our own garden.
  • The house has evolved to meet the needs of the family over the 50 years of our occupancy.
  • The house comfortably accommodated the young people in the family, before and after they left university. We had a decade of adult offspring (three) living in the house.
  • We have fond memories of our wonderful neighbours sharing dinners together, as well as Christmas parties in the Carlton Gardens.
  • Carlton is a wonderful and vibrant community. We have been actively engaged in street closures and protecting this fantastic Heritage precinct.
  • Readings, Jimmy Watson’s, King & Godfree, Watt’s Shoe Store and other shops have been fixtures in our lives.
  • Lygon Street, Brunswick Street and Melbourne city have been frequented and enjoyed over many years. They are all within walking distance, as is the University of Melbourne, our alma mater.
  • Overseas visitors have appreciated being so close to the sights of Melbourne. Barkly Street is a clean street that has made us proud Melburnians.
  • Last, but not least, this house has witnessed countless dinner parties, family occasions and parties of all sorts. Children’s parties, cocktail parties and family celebrations have all been experienced here.

Vendor Review

Both Barry and I found the Nelson Alexander team exemplary in all respects.    

Both Barry and I found the Nelson Alexander team excellent to work alongside. Nicholas, Sheree and Charlie Barham were respectful, considerate, supportive and helpful. Nicholas' advice was reliable and he kept us informed every step of the journey. In today's difficult real estate climate Barry and I wanted, and got, realistic advice from Nicholas. We were very pleased that our request to have Arch Staver as the auctioneer was granted. He did an exemplary job too.
