38 Birch Street, Preston VIC 3072
Art Deco Elegance with Architectural Excellence
Beyond the captivating facade of this clinker-brick home in a beautifully treelined street, discover a family environment of exceptional quality and versatility with its expanded floorplan, premium inclusions and lush landscaped gardens - all in a prized West Preston neighbourhood south of Bell Street. A fabulous fusion of classic and contemporary, the home's gorgeous interior boasts a wonderfully wide central hallway accessing three large bedrooms (all with built-in robes), stylish master ensuite and equally impressive main family bathroom. Designed to take advantage of its northerly aspect, the spectacular light-filled open living/dining area is both spacious and versatile complemented by a superb stone-bench kitchen with breakfast bar, walk-in pantry and quality appliances. Along with ducted heating and split-system air conditioning, the home also features an alarm system, solid hardwood floors, laundry and large linen cupboards. Three sets of double doors (from the living area) reveal a fabulous entertaining deck and manicured backyard garden complete with veggie garden, chook pen and high hedges for added privacy, plus the added appeal of a tandem double garage (r/c) via side driveway. A short stroll to Bell Street buses and choice of tram lines (Gilbert Road and Nicholson Street), it's close to Miller Street shops and cafes, Bell Primary School, as well as endless Merri Creek trails and acres of parkland.

What we love about this home:
This home had all the things we wanted most on our wish list, a beautiful tree lined street, a house with plenty of potential and close proximity to our work and the CBD. It just sort of felt straight away like it was a home.
It was a bit daggy at first but we saw that the interior had potential and could be easily transformed. We reconfigured the floorplan to be more functional, adding a new kitchen, two bathrooms, a laundry, built-in robes and glass doors in the living space leading out to the deck and back yard.
Opening up the main living and dining area allowed us to invite all our family and friends over for lots of dinner parties and celebrations over the years.
For us and the kids, this vibrant, personality-filled home was everything we needed. It is a very serene home, filled with pops of personality and lots of light. We are still thrilled to walk in the front door each day after work and love the bright open calmness of our family home.
What we love about this suburb:
Apart from the easy access to public transport, most things are within a 15 minute drive. I work in Fitzroy and the close proximity to the office is perfect. I also love all the new and established eateries in the area, my favourites are ChuManChu, Takeaway Pizza, Umbertos and Benzina.
Also, really convenient and close-by is the Preston Market where I buy all my fresh produce in the one place and allow myself a cheeky hot donut every Saturday.
Why we are selling:
We have a farm in the Macedon Ranges and have decided to expand our poultry business.
Thank you so much Nelson Alexander
