Perched above one of Melbourne’s most beloved parklands is this utterly charming three bedroom home full of character. Perfect for families or investors with an eye for lasting value, it represents a superb opportunity with its natural setting abutting Gardiner’s Creek Reserve, its timeless elegance, and its scope for re-invention.
Turn right at the entry way and you are afforded a taste of the ease and serenity that typifies Sycamore St, with views right across the treetops of the reserve and beyond. The timber-floored living area, with its built-in bookshelves, cabinetry, heater, and air-conditioner, is an inviting space to while away an afternoon in comfort, with the adjoining formal dining granting not only similar views into the surrounding parkland but a balcony for breakfast amidst the birdsong.
The original kitchen has lost none of its charm, offering original fittings and a bright and spacious area for food preparation, with storage in abundance. The period details continue through the laundry and original bathroom, with the true refinement of the period showing in the lasting relationship of uncomplicated form and function. The three bedrooms, all spacious and all with built-in robes, are peaceful areas of rest and retreat.
Additionally, the property features an established, sheltering front garden, sweeping tiered yard at the rear with a private gate opening onto Gardiner’s Creek trail and – even better – a separate downstairs area beneath the house, has potential which is limited only by your imagination. Music studio, rumpus room, artisan’s workspace, tinkerer’s dream… the choice is yours.
They don’t make them like this anymore. Close to shopping strips, multiple bus routes, and just a short drive away from major centres like Box Hill Central, and Burwood One the neighbourhood is peppered with parklands and prestigious schools, including Mount Scopus Memorial College, Kingswood College, located within the Box Hill High School Zone and a 2 minute walk to Roberts McCubbin Primary School with Deakin University 5 minutes away. Sycamore St is a country retreat right in the heart of Melbourne’s South Eastern suburbs, just 14kms from the CBD. Call Lindella’s today, and be enchanted.
