Brighten up your life with this enchanting block-fronted Victorian weatherboard in Ascot Vale’s coveted Rothwell Hill precinct.
Moments from Ascot Vale train station, Union Road shops and eateries, tram and Rothwell Park, the character-filled dwelling also has Showgrounds Village shopping centre, Flemington Racecourse, Ascot Vale Leisure Centre and Maribyrnong River parklands close at hand.
Behind the traditional picket fence, bullnose verandah, period-style security door and front door with fanlight, the dwelling is highlighted by its north-facing living and dining domain that welcomes natural light year round.
Transformed from the typical dark period residence with smart and tasteful renovations throughout, the instantly appealing home also has the benefit of a spacious second living area in its master suite.
The front door opens to an entry hall with corbelled arch, display nook overlooking the side drive, high ceilings and polished floorboards.
To the left are two double bedrooms.
The first includes the original cast-iron fireplace with timber mantel flanked by fitted built-in robes and open shelving, while the second double bedroom features an en suite with large shower, vanity and wall-hung toilet.
Across the hall is the family bathroom, which incorporates an Englefield spa bath, freestanding vanity, wall-hung toilet and frameless glass shower.
There’s also a large laundry, which includes overhead cabinets, large sink, large broom cupboard/storage room and access to the side services area.
At the rear is the north-facing living and dining domain.
The light-filled spaces include the carpeted sitting room, meals area and the neat kitchen with stainless-steel appliances (Bosch dishwasher, Whirlpool six-burner gas cooktop, 900mm underbench oven and canopy rangehood), kid-safe rounded benchtops, tiled and pantry with appliance cupboard.
French doors open to a Merbau deck, paved barbecue zone and mature gardens in the pristine backyard.
A timber staircase ascends to a landing with linen press, and recessed double doors that access the master bedroom suite.
Highlighted by its spacious parents retreat with full-height storage, the private zone also includes built-in robes, reverse-cycle airconditioner, and en suite with walk-in shower, vanity with raised basin, and wall-hung toilet.
Siemens hydronic heating, roman blinds, dimmer lighting, roller blinds, period detailing, and slate roof are other extras.
