7 Ellen Street
Traditional look with modern feel
A modern transformation has turned this traditional Californian Bungalow style four-bedroom home into a model modern residence in a leafy pocket near Balwyn Shopping Centre.
The leadlight glass front door opens to floors of polished hardwood timber, roses on high ceilings, concave cornices and high skirtings, all in the antique style. The lounge and a sitting room - once a dining room - remain from the original but a superb modernisation has placed a lofty cathedral ceiling over the family living area. With window on top and ceiling fan attached, it fills the room with light and air and gives the sensation of enormous space. A natural red brick fireplace rises to the ceiling and brings comfort across the entire room on chilly Melbourne evenings.The comfortably stylish kitchen is integrated with the family room that also opens to outdoor living on deck overlooking a neat and private north facing rear garden. Main bedroom with ensuite downstairs, three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Powder room next to laundry. Features: alarm and watering system, ducted heating and evaporative cooling upstairs. Location: In the Balwyn high school zone walking distance of Whitehorse Road trams, shops, Balwyn Primary School, plus Fintona Junior and Senior Schools. Enjoying a home like this in a location like this will be a long held tradition.
