19 Sussex Road, Caulfield South
Utterly charming and filled with a compelling sense of opportunity, this 2 bedroom, double-brick home has been lovingly maintained and is rich in a character that infuses a hint of Art Deco charm into its reassuringly strong bones. A Caulfield classic that is comfortably liveable, yet ready for renovation and / or extension (STCA), the home is just metres from Princes Park and moments from both Hawthorn Rd and Glenhuntly Rd, ensuring that it is destined to reward your vision.
Intelligently designed, the home’s traditional kitchen presents a wonderful opportunity for renewal and sits ready for some sort of al fresco extension, whilst the formal dining and semi-attached lounge are traditional, ambient spaces that are warmed by a fire place. Enriched by beautiful polished timber floors, timber internal doors, picture rails and fine ceiling detail, there is much to attract the period enthusiast.
The bedrooms each feature built-in robes, providing excellent storage in this home with a full-size laundry and a lock-up garage. Meanwhile, a generous backyard suggests strongly the possibility of either upward or outward extension – there is plenty of room to grow on this block of 370 metres (approx.).
Whatever you choose, this is an outstanding position that is worthy of your best efforts. The vast expenses of Princes Park are a huge drawcard that are literally metres from your front door, whilst families will also note proximity to Caulfield South Primary School and a selection of fine private schools that include Caulfield Grammar School, Shelford Girls Grammar School and Kilvington Grammar. Easy access to both Gardenvale Railway Station and Ormond Railway Station ensure easy city-commuting, while the local shopping, cafes and restaurants at Hawthorn Rd, Glenhuntly Rd and Martin St is sure to impress.
