The grand plan awaits

Think big with this majestic Edwardian residence that exemplifies potential, position and period charm. On a 1061-square-metre block opposite Footscray Park and overlooking the world-famous Flemington Racecourse, the charming attic-style residence is ready to be enjoyed by growing families. A picture of elegance behind its picket fence and manicured gardens, the weatherboard dwelling’s instant appeal is completed by its abundant period detailing, such as the high ceilings, polished floorboards, plate rails and leadlights. The keyless entry opens to the foyer, to the left of which are two oversized bedrooms resplendent with bay windows and feature fireplaces. Together with a nearby third bedroom, they are serviced by a light-filled bathroom. A stunning box bay window provides a fitting introduction to the 6-metre x 5.2-metre formal lounge, which also has a feature fireplace. Double doors framed by leadlight display cabinets open to the dining room and the French Provincial kitchen, which incorporates the granite-topped island bench, Smeg 900mm freestanding oven with five-burner gas cooktop, dishwasher, butler sink and highlight window. A fourth bedroom with stylish en suite, understairs European laundry and two attic bedrooms (one with retreat or sunroom, completes the floorplan. Double glazing, insect screens, ducted heating, reverse-cycle airconditioners and timber venetians are among the many extras. There is off-street parking for at least three vehicles in the side drive and a garage within the 7.2-metre x 4.4-metre red-brick stables complex that could be converted to a studio. There is also scope to subdivide the block, also subject to council approval, to make the most of the 23-metre x 22-metre backyard. The lifestyle location is enhanced by its easy access to Maribyrnong River parklands, Victoria University, Footscray Market, schools (St Monica’s, Gilmore College, Footscray Primary, St John’s and Kensington Primary), the new Footscray Hospital and the area’s renowned shopping and dining precincts.
