1/92 Aphrasia Street Newtown
DESIGNED TO IMPRESS
Original character features combine with the best of modern family living in this ornate Edwardian home in the heart of Newtown’s private school strip.
Soaring ceilings, leadlight windows, fretwork, intricate ceiling detail and roses, mantlepieces and cast-iron fireplaces combine to show that this red-brick home was designed to impress when built circa 1904.
It has been newly renovated to make the most of the spacious original rooms and impressive entrance and hall while updating the layout with a modern kitchen and dining area at the back, opening on to a north-facing entertainer’s deck.
The huge lounge room and three spacious bedrooms all feature original fireplaces, ceiling roses and cornice.
The master bedroom suite boasts enough space to include a lounge or study area, as well as having built-in robes and cleverly hidden access to the luxe ensuite with soaker bath, twin vanities and walk-in shower.
The other two bedrooms – one with its own ensuite – include built-in robes, while the main bathroom features a walk-in shower and floor-to-ceiling tiles.
The contemporary kitchen, which opens out through a wall of French doors to the long alfresco deck, boasts stone benchtops, plenty of storage space in soft-close cupboards and drawers, as well as a suite of Miele appliances including an integrated refrigerator and dishwasher, plus induction cooktop.
There’s abundant space for busy family meal times, with a breakfast bar and a separate adjoining meals area with room for a full-size dining suite.
For quiet time, retire to the formal lounge overlooking the well-established, low-maintenance front garden.
Other features include original Baltic pine floors polished to a mirror finish, ducted heating, Euro-style laundry, plantation shutters and rear enclosed private garden and garage.
And, of course, there is the location – across the road from The Geelong College, just a few minutes’ walk to St Joseph’s College, Sacred Heart College and Newtown Primary and set between the shopping and dining strips of Shannon Avenue and Pakington Street.
The property is also within easy reach of the CBD, Geelong train station and the Ring Road or Princes Freeway to Melbourne.
