Owners Notes

The design

The height of the ceilings and the gorgeous tall doors!   The architect David White’s use of light through high windows set in the walls which create the most amazing geometric light patterns on the walls – revealing the colours of sunrise and the patterns of leaves on the walls.

Every room has amazing wall and ceiling angles through clever use of design drawing on light from the windows change the appearance and effect from different vantage points.

The massive floor to ceiling doors that open out to the back patio extending the space even further and bringing outside in.

The downstairs space!

Huge bedroom and massive area has been such a boon for situating my office and having space to have friends to stay with virtually their own separate apartment.

The fruit bats

Watching the flight overhead of the 30,000 fruit bats from Yarra Bend Park in search of dinner each night  is like having a nightly show which never ceases to thrill us!

The trains!

Yes the trains! We love the elevated track that seems to float in the air and watching life passing by.  The trains are part of the colour and vibrancy of where we live and they are surprisingly quiet.  Perhaps because they are electric and elevated. We love seeing them pass – Occasionally there is a steam train that comes past and blows its vintage steam horn which is so much fun!

Our proximity to Merri Creek!

Merri Creek is just behind our home and walking along the bike/walk track is a rewarding daily experience.

Our BC neighbours 8- 10a.

The 5 units are all owner occupied and are a terrific bunch – no one lives in each others pockets as everyone is busy, but we have a WhatsApp group and we meet for a drink a couple of times a year.  We help each other out if we can. It’s good to know we have each other’s back if needs be.

Vendor Review

Exemplar of great service and excellent outcome    

When we decided to sell our beloved home we were looking for a real estate professional who was a genuine and authentic representative who didn’t come across as either pushy or slick; we wanted someone who was sensitive to our specific needs and circumstances, and who knew the industry and the area like the back of their hand. It was a pretty complex list of characteristics that we were searching for and yet our wishes were fulfilled. Janine Ballantine and her team from Nelson Alexander Real Estate’s Carlton office as well as Luke Sacco and his team supporting from the Northcote Office, absolutely exceeded all our expectations from the beginning to the end. My partner and I were thrilled with the expertise and support throughout the campaign and the outcome was more than we hoped for. I cannot commend Nelson Alexander Real Estate highly enough for their genuine professionalism and client focussed service and we are deeply indebted to the team for ensuring they treated our property with genuine enthusiasm and truly believed in what it offered to prospective buyers. Selling a family home is always fraught with emotion and stress and yet Janine and her team anticipated this throughout and ensured that they kept the disruption to the minimum and that all interactions were positive and supportive. On the day of the day of the Auction Nelson Alexander Real Estate sent us a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and wished us good luck. Such a lovely personal touch, which, along with gaining well above our reserve price - completed our very positive experience! Thank you once again to Janine and Luke and their fabulous teams at Nelson Alexander Real Estate – it was a benchmark experience that we will always hold as the gold standard for combining professional service with a caring ‘human focussed’ culture.
