10 Longstaff Street, Ivanhoe East VIC 3079
Mid-Century Light and Proportion, Blue Chip Potential
A home of extraordinary untapped potential, this 3-4 bedroom family residence presents you with the particularly impressive combination of vintage, mid 20th Century, light-loving architectural excellence, a peaceful cul de sac position and an exquisite outlook over the beauty of adjacent parkland. Destined for greatness, the home is more than liveable today, with scope to extend for a spectacular al fresco lifestyle or even to rebuild (STCA) on a magnificent allotment of 824 square metres (approx.).
Brilliantly designed and oriented to deliver wonderful park-side outlooks, the open-plan kitchen / dining / living is grandly elevated above the depths of the home's lush backyard and the Yarra parklands beyond. Impressively proportioned with timber flooring and huge windows, the sense of occasion is compelling whilst the flow outdoors to a vast balcony is ideally suited to entertaining. Sheltered from the world and surrounded by its natural beauty, this is a setting your guests wont easily forget.
Offering the flexibility loved by families of today, the home offers 2 primary bedrooms each with substantial built-in robes, as well as a clever garage conversion for a huge bedroom that teenagers would love. Meanwhile, a central study is certainly large enough to be used as a 4th bedroom.
Under the home, an additional, undercover entertaining area / rumpus area is an open space that looks out upon the backyard and is certain to also appeal, whilst a double carport, family-sized bathroom with a separate wc, ducted heating and a laundry complete the picture of family comfort.
Indeed, this idyllic setting is the perfect place to lay some family roots, allowing you to wander to East Ivy Village for a taste of cafe culture and strip shopping, whilst endless trails and vast expanses of Yarra parkland are also comfortably walkable from this location that is just minutes from the convenience of shopping at Warringal and city access via either trains at Ivanhoe or the Eastern Freeway. Importantly, there are also quality schools nearby at Ivanhoe Grammar School, Ivanhoe Girls Grammar and East Ivanhoe Primary School. Nelson Alexander Pty Ltd.
