Expressions of Interest – Closing Thursday 7th of December 6.00pm
A magnificent legacy of Melbourne’s Golden Age, Elm Terrace is an illustrious, stately and proud four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom Victorian terrace that has been completely transformed with rare artistic vision by Adam Dettrick Architects into a sublime modern home beautifully positioned in genteel surroundings on the city’s fringe.
With the utmost privacy, expanses of glass and clever electric opening roof windows allow light and fresh air to transfer through all levels; while a secluded north-west entertaining courtyard facilitates a seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle that is desirably maintenance free.
Majestic beneath soaring period ceilings and distinguished by the grandest proportions, every element down to the finest detail has been considered, crafted and rejuvenated to stand the test of time for a further 150 years.
Formal sitting and dining rooms with original refurbished floorboards offer a regal backdrop for entertaining. The sitting room frames spectacular views of Medley Hall and the mansions on the east side of Drummond Street through original glass windows; while the marble fireplace is both warming and inviting a glass of red wine under the light of the ornate 1800s ceiling rose and chandelier. The formal dining room with a magnificent fireplace with timber surround and ceiling rose equally suites use as a study if desired.
The newly designed open-plan kitchen with butler’s pantry is bespoke by master craftsman in every aspect. A full suite of Gaggenau appliances includes a coffee machine, two ovens (one combi oven and microwave), second dishwasher in the butler’s pantry and warming drawer alongside an integrated three door fridge and freezer and dual zone Vintec wine fridge. The custom cabinetry includes a central island illuminated with antique pineapple crystal pendants with Carrara marble benchtops complemented by hexagon Carrara marble tiled splashbacks.
Cream provincial honed and filled travertine flooring adds a light, luxurious and ageless finish to the kitchen and open-plan living and dining room that stretches into the western light with bi-fold doors opening the space to the courtyard with contained garden plantings and built-in barbecue.
Beyond, the rare asset of a double remote garage accessed from McDonalds Lane is further enhanced by a top-floor studio/guest quarters with a 4th bedroom with marble ensuite, data cabling and split-system air conditioning.
On the upper-level of the terrace, a luxurious main bedroom suite with private balcony overlooks the courtyard, setting sun and beautiful bluestone church and features a dressing room and exquisite marble ensuite with freestanding bath. An alternate main bedroom is luxuriously proportioned accommodating a walk-in robe and marble ensuite and opens to the iconic lacework balcony surveying the beautiful streetscape. A third double bedroom with comprehensive robes is served by a private marble bathroom; while a guest powder is located on the ground-floor.
Elm Terrace is comprehensively appointed with stunning antique light fixtures including French Regency lanterns, French chandeliers and Louis XVI wall sconces, restumped and reset original floorboards, zoned refrigerated air conditioning and heating, CAT 6 cabling, German tapware, marble finished laundry and entrance intercom. The home is Foxtel and NBN ready and has been completely re-wired and re-plumbed.
The close knit and quiet neighbourhood with a unique community atmosphere is complemented by all the city edge advantages with immediate walking access to the CBD, Carlton Garden’s acres of greenery, galleries, businesses, hundreds of restaurants, cafes, Melbourne’s theatre precinct and tram and train options.
