Fine Federation Amongst Gorgeous Gardens

With its origins steeped in history yet an eye firmly on the future, this enchanting c1912 Federation home presides over an exceptional 755 sqm allotment of premium Elwood land. Lovingly restored and extended, the home now requires nothing more than the next custodians to also fall in love.
Beyond a traditional arched fretwork verandah, the interiors boast soaring ceilings adorned with intricate plasterwork, whilst the sunshine brings alive delicately coloured leadlight. A broad entrance provides the welcome to the original accommodation which now comprises four beautiful bedrooms (all with BIRs) along with a tranquil formal lounge. Bow bay windows, panelled walls and rich ceramic hearth fireplaces are among the nostalgic design details that have been left to shine. Nodding to the heritage, a freestanding bath is showcased in the brand-new bathroom in addition to a twin vanity and frameless shower – skylights feature in both the second WC and sound-insulated laundry with considerable storage.
And while the front of the home is peaceful and charming, a social hub has been created in the double-glazed rear living and dining zone where a European-equipped kitchen topped with gleaming granite will please families and entertainers. Bi-fold doors extend this space out to a sheltered brick patio which, combined with the adjacent lawn, is perfect for gatherings of all sizes. The carefully planted gardens with automatic irrigation provide unprecedented privacy and peace - a flourishing herb garden and fertile fruit trees ensure the freshest ingredients for hosts.
An adaptable freestanding studio with full bathroom also offers the option of guest quarters, Airbnb, home office & more – also here is a versatile storage shed with workshop.
With attic space for a potential 2nd storey extension, ROW access to the rear, ducted heating, split system, 3000l water tank and off-street parking for three cars, this evocative property is a walk to Ripponlea station, trams, cafes and of course the beach.
