The property

Boasting a coveted locale within the Windy Hill and Strathmore College precincts, this spacious three bedroom landmark home has been in the same family for seven decades. An exemplary solid red brick Edwardian facade incorporates a slate roof, leadlight windows and tessellated tiled veranda with decorative ironwork. Within, period charm continues with soaring pressed metal ceilings and open fireplaces beckoning restoration. The functional floorplan complements three huge bedrooms with a large lounge, dining room, kitchen/meals and covered outdoor entertaining area. There's also ducted heating, remote controlled roller door to secure tandem carport and driveway parking, original bungalow (workshop/storeroom), second toilet and full laundry. A substantial block of approximately 760m2 with dual frontages (lane on north boundary), presents excellent opportunity for development, alternatively a period beauty awaits renovation with exciting scope to extend, both options STCA. Steps to Essendon Primary School and Glenbervie station, it's also just walking distance to the area's most prestigious schools and Mt Alexander Road/Napier Street retail junction.
