139 Station Street, Port Melbourne
The period integrity is immediately impressive, the renovated proportions are equally, instantly inviting – together they combine to define this double fronted Victorian, directly opposite Walter Reserve parkland, ideally situated to take advantage of Bay Street shopping, South Melbourne market, quality cafes and tram routes and bike tracks to the city. Behind the perfectly preserved beauty of the façade, a series of refined spaces begins; with three romantic bedrooms and two sophisticated bathrooms, including the main bedroom’s sublime ensuite. To the rear, reached by the evocative arched hall, the mood switches to irresistibly modern as welcoming living and dining areas are accompanied by solid timber floorboards and an open-plan kitchen featuring stone surfaces, elite appliances and integrated storage. Hydronic heating throughout, split system cooling and impeccable presentation further enhance a home that concludes with a Spotted Gum decked backdrop that’s desirable to look at – and a delight to entertain in. This is inner city living as you’ve always wished it would be.
