Positioned on one of Melbourne’s most exquisite, tree-lined streets is this refined and instantly seductive two-bedroom period home in the Box Hill High School Zone. Lovingly cared for, it has recently been re-stumped and the roof has been retiled. It is guaranteed to delight with its original character and lavish dimensions.
Upon entering, one is immediately struck by the warmth and craftsmanship of the property. Quality timber floors extend through the large living and dining area, where a fully functioning fireplace will undoubtedly add a distinctive ambience in the winter months. The central kitchen – with views into the back garden – is inviting and generously proportioned, with a walk-in pantry and a striking copper range-hood that is sure to be a conversation starter.
The master bedroom, featuring an exquisite ornate ceiling, looks out into the well-established front garden, while the second bedroom (with built-in robes) is similarly spacious and welcoming. The bathroom has lost none of its heritage charm, with a sunken bath, separate shower, and pedestal basin evoking the classic aesthetic of the period. Inside also comprises a separate toilet, laundry with extensive storage, ducted heating, and split cycle air conditioning in the living and dining space.
It is outside, in the expansive east-facing rear yard, that the property will ultimately steal your heart. A wide, sheltered wooden deck provides the ideal space for early evening wind-downs or entertaining, and looks over a true slice of Eden where an extraordinary liquid amber tree towers above and a converted single car garage serves as an artist’s studio containing its own comfortable retreat. Established orange and grapefruit trees, as well as a chicken coop and tool shed, offer both picturesque and practical benefits for garden lovers.
With the addition of solar panels on the retiled roof, side drive and sheltered car space, updated plumbing to bathroom and laundry, and lined attic for storage, this property represents a rare opportunity to capture a refined gem. Close to all the best that cosmopolitan Box Hill has to offer, it’s proximity to Box Hill Central, public transport and Eastlink, recreational facilities such as Aqualink, as well as Deakin University and the prestige primary and secondary schools the area is renowned for, makes this a property not to be missed. Call Lindellas today, and be spellbound by Bass St’s singular magic. .
