27 Yarra Street, Hawthorn
Since 1869, this magnificent Victorian rendered-brick home on a sprawling 1,021m2 (approx.) has taken pride of place in the prestigious landscape of the coveted St James Park Estate. Originally built for George Johnson, the renowned architect of many of Melbourne’s opulent town halls, the home is filled with elaborate grandeur while providing an easy lifestyle for the modern family. Placed just minutes from the CBD and surrounded by transport, the home offers absolute convenience with immediate access to shopping, eateries, parklands and our best schools.
Set within an immaculate garden estate, the majesty of the home’s era is enveloped under towering 11-foot decorative ceilings, where an elegant scattering of stained-glass windows, cast iron gas fireplaces, ornate architraves and picture rails, and stunning chandeliers are displayed.
An extravagant dining hall and sitting room enjoys the bright northern light through a stained-glass bay window by day, while warmed by the romantic glow of an gas fireside by night. A casual family room adjoins the fully-appointed kitchen and meals room, stretching onto an entertaining deck where alfresco dining is enjoyed under the shade of soaring Birch trees.
Imbued with lush garden views in every room, the three-bedroom layout is complemented by a library or fourth bedroom, including luxurious ensuite amenity to the well-fitted master suite. Impressively comfortable throughout, including under-house storage/cellar, single garage or potential kids’ rumpus, plus numerous veggie patches, the home delivers scope for future aesthetic improvement or possible extension (subject to council approval).
A prestigious location, just a short stroll from the Yarra’s walking trails, Burwood Road shopping, Hawthorn Station and city-bound trams, while surrounded by elite public and private schools.
