OBVIOUS

Built in 1897 and sitting amongst a row of six Victorian single fronted properties, this is a piece of Melbourne’s residential history that has had contemporary, yet tasteful, facelifts over time.

Number 9 sits in an elevated position amongst its cohort and indulges in seeing views of the CBD in the distance. The street is quiet, despite the gentle hum of the café 75 metres away and independent boutique bottle shop at the other end of the street, for pre-dinner wine runs.

Walking up to the entry, you’re greeted with a front porch sensor light for safety, and once inside you’ll notice the black china-stained floors beneath your feet. The ceiling height is consistently four metres throughout the property, the ducted heating is powered by Google Nest, and new air conditioning and heating split systems feature in every bedroom and living space. The entire property has strength in length, allowing for plenty of privacy between rooms and zones.

The recently remodelled kitchen has been designed to make clever use of the space and feature top-of-the-range appliances, like a new Westinghouse oven and rangehood. The kitchen flows into the large living and dining area that can be completely opened to the backyard decking space, ideal for entertaining and keeping birthday invite lists long. New cabinetry has been custom made for these spaces, as well as heritage-detailed cornices and a gas fireplace to keep the room, and atmosphere, warm.

The main bedroom includes built-in wardrobes and a beautiful heritage-style fireplace, with peaceful views out to the front garden. The second bedroom also has a heritage fireplace, built-in robes, and all bedrooms have been fitted with brand new carpets and plantation shutters. The bathroom has been recently renovated with a custom vanity, heavy-duty fan, and heating light, too.

The backyard has been kept in great condition with plenty of greenery and neighbouring trees on both sides creating a view worth sitting and appreciating. The front deck makes a perfect people-watching spot, and on a warm summer’s night it’s ideal for a chilled red in hand, CBD in the distance. A remote electric roller door system can fit two cars comfortably, but the neighbourhood is safe enough to leave a door unlocked anyway.

SEALS THE DEAL

At the annual Haines Street Christmas party this is known as the Paris end, and you can see why. Having Glenferrie and Auburn Road’s best restaurants, boutiques, and parks within a five-minute walk makes this heritage home Hawthorn’s most exciting offer. Trés bien.
