This one will grab your attention

A leafy streetscape in the very heart of the North Fitzroy Village provides a vibrant setting for this former Victorian cornerstore: now a spacious two-storey inner-city home, its character filled interior has been tastefully transformed into a residence that is unique; it's numerous principal rooms providing a multitude of usage options and versatility. Reconfigured for modern living, the home is a light-filled environment of character and class with three upstairs bedrooms and study/fourth bedroom, finished in crisp white freshly painted tones and honey coloured floorboards. Upstairs, these private areas enjoy views over the quirky Fitzroy North streetscape and are serviced by a sleek bathroom in contemporary colour schemes and on-trend fittings. Downstairs is the home's showpiece and most attention grabbing feature. As you step in off Scotchmer Street (One of 3 entrances) you are greeted by a vast living/dining room that was once the original store front. Bursting with natural light, it is surrounded by glass providing leafy aspects and towering ceiling heights. Living rooms of this size are a rarity in the inner-city and this lovely space will accommodate the largest of couches and dining tables, its proportions will enable a number of different configurations. Beyond lies a stylish stone-bench kitchen finished in snow white with tiled splashback. It connects to a second family or meals area complemented by ornate plasterwork that leads to a sunny North facing courtyard. Stepping outside you will discover a studio/guest room and a second bathroom/laundry. This beautifully segmented room may lend itself perfectly to a rewarding rental/short-stay option, teenager's haven, guest quarters or perhaps even a handy garage for storage and/or parking purposes. Swinging gates open to Fergie Street providing unprecedented side access. The home also features the contrasting appeal of both solid timber and polished concrete floors, period features and retains minor commercial/retail elements. In the heart of the bustling St Georges Road village precinct, this wonderful area is adored by locals and offers the magnificent Fitzroy North Library, much loved eateries, bakery's and eclectic retail outlets, as well as the prized Piedmonte's supermarket. Fitzroy North Primary School and Fitzroy High School are close by, as are the Capital City & Merri Creek Trails, whilst the splendour of the Edinburgh Gardens is just a leisurely stroll around the corner. A central location such as this will provide many years of happy living as you enjoy the unique attributes of this wonderful postcode. Note : Subject to council approval, returning the building to a creative commercial venture combined with a generous family resistance may be an option. Nelson Alexander Pty Ltd

Anthony is a good agent and terrific person. He kept me fully informed throughout our recent sale always being available when I needed to discuss things. He respectfully and gently navigated me through the process, and I would recommend him without reservation.
