Architecturally Designed Period Charmer in Gorgeous Garden Surrounds
Fondly known as the Brighton Garden House, this immaculate architecturally designed 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom (or 2-bed + study) period home on 534m2 is the perfect example of a timeless amalgamation of past and present.
Located in a sought-after Brighton pocket, renowned Melbourne architects Wellard have reworked the existing footprint of the Edwardian front and sensitively joined a new, modern dwelling at the rear. With an emphasis on fluidity between indoor and outdoor spaces, a consistent theme of natural light joins every zone within the home and offers a living environment that is timeless, effortless and without compromise.
Period details have been expertly restored with an ornate fireplace, traditional entrance veranda and leadlight features all retained. The original wide entrance hallway has been upgraded with Royal Oak flooring and leads to a light-filled, open plan kitchen and dining area with universally appealing monochrome tones. An L-shaped kitchen with concrete and marble benchtops, high-end integrated appliances and an expansive 3.8m sliding servery window offers a functional space which allows for effortless expansion to external dining. Other features include a Shaker wood stove by Antonio Citterio which sits anchored on a semi-circle marble base, pendant lights by Gubi and custom joinery offering plentiful storage.
At the front of the property, the master suite features an expansive WIR, original period detailing and Fritz Hansen wall lights with neutral Terrazzo tiles, underfloor heating, brass detailing and a freestanding bath all highlights of the complimentary ensuite. The second bedroom offers lavish proportions, BIR and timber shutters, while the optional 3rd bed/study features hydronic heating, oak veneer joinery and a seamless connection to the outdoors.
Externally, a deep north-facing rear offers generous space and a sun-drenched outdoor area that appeals to the modern Australian lifestyle. Gardens designed by Renata Fairhall envelope a formed concrete barbecue and alfresco area, perfect for entertaining family and friends. Other external features include intercom front entry, automatic gates, off-street parking for two cars and workshop/garden shed.
