Built in 1880, 'Jennie' is a glorious 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom Victorian terrace of superb proportions and beautiful character ready to be given a sympathetic renovation to bring out its classical beauty.
Built by a ship's captain who owned the middle house and put his two daughters either side of him, 'Jennie' has only had 5 previous owners in its 141 year life, with the current owners enjoying her for the past 38 years.
Resplendent with its laced verandahs, 12ft approx. ceilings, tessellated tiled verandah, red pine architraves and skirting boards, deep cornices, ceiling roses, original stained glass, arched hallways, bluestone foundations and carved timber mantles over the original cast iron fireplaces, you'll be in awe of the glorious character that's been retained.
Full of light thanks to a conservatory style skylight in the stairwell, this solid brick treasure enjoys a sun filled sitting room (OFP), a charming dining room (OFP), a slate-floored casual living/meals area (OFP & bookcase) with a hidden underground cellar, an eclectic kitchen with original cast iron stove + electric cooking; 3 superb bedrooms upstairs (2 with BIRs & OFPs), a traditional balcony terrace, a central bathroom and laundry, with a 2nd laundry and 2nd toilet in an outbuilding in the easy care courtyard.
Lovingly maintained, this majestic classic is very quiet inside and provides hydronic ducted heating and ducted air conditioning (separate systems), security doors, a custom-built conservatory style cat-run or alfresco area and an auto door to leafy Lyons Street for parking.
Opposite the Port Melbourne Town Hall in this leafy streetscape, in the vicinity of various cafes, restaurants and hotels, walk to Edwards Park, South Melbourne Market and local schools.
