Substantial Period Home - In the Balwyn High School Zone

Impressive family space, period grandeur and a blue chip location in the Balwyn High School zone begin the story of this elegant 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom double storey weatherboard residence. Built in 1920 and set on 801 sqm (approx.), it offers you wonderful privacy, yet is just a short walk from the Balwyn shopping precinct, Balwyn Cinema, Balwyn Primary, Fintona Girls' School, Whitehorse Road trams (109) and Balwyn Park. Substantially renovated and extended, there are just a few finishing touches needed to make this your perfect family home. Alternatively, build your new prestige family home or potentially build two new residences (STCA).

The three-car auto garage provides excellent parking for your cars (or possibly caravan, trailer or boat) with high ceilings, a throughway roller door to the rear yard and internal access into the home, plus additional off street parking at the front of the property.

Serene landscaped gardens will captivate you, as will the period detail, 3 light-filled living zones, big rooms, exquisite garden outlooks and high quality finishes, including high ceilings, decorative cornices, rosettes, picture rails and beautiful hardwood polished floors.

The private upstairs parent's wing is a dream boasting parent's retreat, main bedroom with enormous his/hers WIR and luxury bathroom (double shower and his/hers vanities). A separate upstairs children's wing contains 2 large bedrooms (BIRs), a deluxe bathroom (twin vanities) and powder room. Bedrooms 4 and 5, a central bathroom, powder room and laundry with storage are on the ground floor.

Cook like a Master Chef in the designer-style kitchen; it showcases stainless steel Smeg appliances, (900mm oven), beautiful timber cabinetry, granite and stainless steel benchtops, glass splashbacks and butler's kitchen.

Highlighted by large picture windows, the dining area and family room open to the huge undercover alfresco deck (built in bbq rangehood) and tranquil, easy-care landscaped garden; for sensational year-round entertaining. A formal lounge (open fireplace), study nook and living room (with garden access) provide flexibility for parents and children alike.

Quality appointments: gas heating, six air-conditioners, alarm, double glazed windows, continuous hot water service and amazing internal/external storage (built-in, attic-style and 2 sheds).

Land Dimensions: 17.53m x 45.72m (approx.)

Close to leading public and private schools, shopping at Balwyn village, Deepdene and Westfield Doncaster and the Eastern freeway.
