The property

Sometimes you come across a home that is so uniquely appealing, you can't resist the pull of its incredible personality - and here is one such place. Affectionately known as "The Light House", this unique abode dates back to c1875 where it once housed workers from the nearby gas works.
Lovingly brought to life by the current owners, there are a wealth of gorgeous accents that have been incorporated within the nostalgic walls. Delicately coloured Venetian glass chandeliers and Art Nouveau plasterwork sit alongside the modern comforts of a Smeg/Bosch kitchen, masses of clever storage plus a lifestyle that is hard to beat.
Featuring a cosy lounge with an inviting gas fireplace, the light-flushed home offers an intimate dining space adjacent the warm timber kitchen plus a thoughtfully conceived office zone that opens out to the courtyard. Here a shed is a practical inclusion whilst access to Grieg Street is a handy bonus - a wet room bathroom with laundry provisions completes the lower level.
Upstairs, the two dedicated bedrooms are both comfortable and welcoming, one boasting a sparkling ensuite and split system, while hidden away right at the top is a versatile fully-lined attic space with views over the rooftops to the city. Kept comfortable year-round with a split system on each level and tinted windows, the charming home is ideally placed just a 5-min walk to the beach, a 15-min tram ride to the city and within easy reach of Albert Park Lake, the attractions of St Kilda plus an array of dining and recreation options.
