The property

AUCTION THIS SATURDAY | Be inspired by this beautiful established corner allotment at this prized Alto Avenue address. Lovingly owned for 45 years the character home requires some nurturing but with a few updates is completely livable while planning and permission is sought for a larger modern residence to further embrace this leafy exclusive location. Original cornices, picture rails and lofty ceilings add charm to each room with a main living displaying 2 year old wood heater and split system heating/cooling. A country style kitchen offers gas cooking and 3 sizeable bedrooms (2 with robes) are accompanied by an updated timber bathroom with semi frameless shower and laundry facilities. The gardens are bursting with birdlife bordered by abundant fruit trees including nashi-pear, cherry, apple and citrus, creating a lovely secluded setting for children to explore freely. Nestled in this natural wonder is a brick paved studio that with some renovations could be a terrific base for artists, multipurpose space or home office. The home offers dual crossovers on Woodland Avenue, providing off street parking on the driveways for 3 cars and future potential to create a circular driveway for trades people and busy families. Opposite Alto Reserve and minutes to Lipscombe Park and Ainslie Park. Closely connected to Tintern GS, Yarra Valley GS, Luther College, Oxley College and Rudolf Steiner School. Walk to Croydon Trains and Main Street cafes/eateries. Close to Eastland, bike trails, parks and freeway/Eastlink. Superbly located for access to the Yarra Valley region. Create your dreams in Alto!
