“ATHLUNKARD, c1878”

With ties back to Limerick Ireland, this house of significant historical importance was built for local hotelier William Malone. The two storey parapeted brick home features unique and uncommon details and adept expression of materials which contribute greatly to the Victorian-era streetscapes. Athlunkard means the “the ford of the boatstead”.

Enviably positioned in one of West Melbourne’s finest and widest tree-lined streets, this imposing balconied terrace delivers an inner-city family lifestyle beyond compare with its expanded floorplan, extensive list of features and landscaped backyard oasis to enjoy. A remarkable fusion of Victorian elegance and contemporary flair, the home’s rich interior showcases three generous bedrooms (enormous master with full-width robes and balcony access), together with a stylish central bathroom with clawfoot tub and two separate powder rooms – one on each level. Further enhancing its floorplan flexibility is an elegant front lounge (or fourth bedroom) and separate dining room leading through to the well-appointed kitchen with Smeg/Asko appliances and spacious living area to the rear flanked by floor-to-ceilings steel-frame windows for an abundance of natural light. Other highlights of this extraordinary home include hydronic heating throughout, Baltic Pine floorboards, extensive marble tiling and towering ceilings across both levels, as well as solar/gas hot water and under-stair storeroom. Completing the picture is a fabulous bluestone-paved alfresco entertaining area and surprisingly deep backyard with lush lawn, world-class landscaping, large garden shed and secure off-street parking (remote-control rollerdoor to Jones Place behind). The best of Melbourne at your fingertips, it’s a short stroll to Victoria Street trams and Errol Street cafes, Queen Victoria Market and North Melbourne Station, it’s also close to the open spaces of Flagstaff Gardens, local schools (University HS zone) and hospital/university precincts.
