43 Vale Street, ST KILDA
Exceptional Edwardian In Botanical Surrounds
Situated amongst easy-care native gardens which afford every room a lush private aspect, this gorgeous freestanding family home has been comprehensively renovated whilst retaining the integrity of its Edwardian heritage. Alive with intact turn-of the-century detail including tiled open fireplaces, soaring ceilings and rich leadlight, this is a uniquely peaceful inner-city residence in a truly welcoming neighbourhood. Vale Street plays host to many long term family home owners and offers abundant street parking with resident permits.
To the front, original Baltic floors and ornate plasterwork star in the central hallway which flows past two generously-proportioned bedrooms and a tranquil sitting room (or 4th BR) to a striking modern addition where walls of bi-folds look over a secluded bluestone courtyard. Filled with streams of light, the sleek stainless-steel kitchen with luxe appliances & Blum cabinetry is ideally positioned for entertaining; whilst further on the in-vogue bathroom boasts an inviting Kaldewei bath. Giving options and flexibility for guests or extra living space, a rear air-conditioned studio showcases a brilliant king-size Tiltaway bed which can folded away to transform the space into a fitted home theatre complete with screen. This fabulously versatile zone boasts an ensuite bathroom and masses of storage. Concluding this one-of-a-kind offering are a practical laundry with heated drying line, useful mud-room with bike hoist, plus an alarm and hydronic heating throughout.
Ideally located, with the tram just metres away, St Kilda Beach, Acland & Carlisle Streets and a choice of schools within a kilometre.
