The property

***University High School Zone***

This elegant terrace has been sensitively renovated for low-maintenance living by an award-winning Victorian architect. It combines period character with contemporary style at a distinctive address opposite the Carlton Gardens, just around the corner from Lygon Street cafes, Carlton Primary School, minutes to the Royal Children's Hospital, and within walking distance of the CBD.

Entry is to an arched hallway opening to a handsome front living room with gorgeous ornamental fireplaces, a cleverly separated 4th bedroom overlooking a tranquil atrium garden. Set to the rear is an expansive dining area opening to an entertainer's kitchen, stylishly fitted with timber cabinet detail, stainless steel benchtop and Miele appliances, and including smart storage wall. Also enjoy on the lower level a convenient powder room perfect for when guests visit.

A wall of glass links the kitchen to a brick-paved landscaped courtyard ideal for the summer months outside. A large garage, equipped with laundry facilities, provides access to a spacious timber lined loft-style home office/studio with split-system air conditioning. Upstairs are three bedrooms-the main with built-in robes, stylish fully-tiled ensuite with separate bath and shower. The second and third bedrooms feature gorgeous decorative fireplaces and BIRs, a second tiled bathroom completes the upstairs.

Additional features of this exceptional property include classic Victorian detail, quality cabinetry, plantation shutters, air-conditioning, slab heating and secure remote-access lockup garage accessible via rear lane.
