Grand Old Dame

Rare, remarkable and located in the heart of the city, experience the grace and grandeur of another era in this fine example of early Geelong architecture.

Set behind high hedges on a large corner block, luxurious gardens offer leafy privacy and a serene setting for this instantly-appealing, majestic red-brick Victorian.

The brilliant 665sqm block of prime land provides an idyllic lifestyle, located in a prized precinct on the doorstep of the CBD, prestigious schools, hospitals, South Geelong train station, Skilled Stadium, Barwon River and the stunning Waterfront.

Immaculately maintained original features transform this five-bedroom residence into a ready-to-enjoy, elegant abode boasting refined lead-lighting, elaborate detailing, decorative gable ends and fine trim that blend effortlessly to create a property of significance.

Inside, an impressive entryway boasts polished hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, feature windows and detailed timber fretwork. The main bedroom is an understated beauty with charming box bay window with lead-lighting, original fireplace, a fine ensuite bathroom and spacious walk-in robe.

Flowing from the long hallway are two further bedrooms, one with additional fireplace and more beautiful lead-lighting.

At the heart of the home, sun streams through a huge north-facing bay window over a picture-perfect setting with well-appointed kitchen and open plan dining and living area. The kitchen offers plenty of cupboard space, walk in pantry, gas cooking and feature lead-light cabinets, and access to the lovely pergola and alfresco area.

At the end of a generous hallway, the modern extension of the home begins. An abundance of natural light gives the entire area a warm glow, bouncing off the rich timber paneling. Here there are two further sun-drenched bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling built-in robes and huge upstairs living area complete with kitchenette and plenty of room for a home office or sixth bedroom.

Additional highlights include a masterfully-appointed central bathroom, dual zone ducted heating, an additional powder room, large laundry, two-car garage with enough room behind the gates to park 5 vehicles off the street, established gardens, and a private entertaining area.
