INNER-CITY EDWARDIAN DELIGHT
Heritage living combines seamlessly with modern quality and style in this classy Edwardian home in a prime pocket of inner-city Geelong.
Period detail and character features are on show in abundance from the moment you step into the impeccably renovated and maintained property.
And the sizeable 620sq m block (approx.) with two street frontages provides a bonus option to subdivide and build a second residence at the back (STCA), facing Little Richmond St.
The double-fronted weatherboard home features three generous bedrooms, a study ideal for working from home and light-filled open-plan family living, dining and kitchen zone in a rear extension true to the home’s heritage origins.
The kitchen, with period-style kitchen cabinetry and walk-in pantry, overlooks the living room so the chef is always at the heart of activity.
There’s abundant space for a full-size dining table, sofas, TV area and for kids to play.
With polished timber floors and French doors opening onto a verandah and private, sun-soaked backyard, it’s also an entertainment-friendly zone.
The three bedrooms are at the front of the property, ensuring privacy away from the living hub, while the study could double as a fourth bedroom.
The family bathroom boasts a clawfoot bath, separate shower and tessellated tiles.
Other heritage highlights throughout include leadlight, fretwork, dado rails, high ceilings with roses and fireplaces.
The carefully tended, well-established gardens feature a north-facing front yard with fountain and portico entrance and magnificent expansive backyard with space for kids to run free, as well as a family vegie patch.
Other features include ducted heating, ceiling fans, timber venetians, separate laundry, garage with workshop space accessed from Little Richmond St, plus side lane access.
The property, zoned to South Geelong primary school, is walking distance to the hospital precinct, East Geelong shopping village, footy, netball and cricket at Richmond Reserve, South Geelong station, CBD shops and offices.
It’s also within easy reach of private schools in Newtown, GMHBA Stadium, Kardinia Aquatic Centre, the Pakington St strip and the Ring Road to Melbourne or the Surf Coast.
