Glen Iris 6A Bonnyview Street
Contemporary family living with period class
Striking a perfect balance of family proportions, multiple living areas, and fabulous outdoor entertaining (and play), this classic solid brick home has been extended and given a complete makeover.
It’s effectively a brand-new home that retains its incomparable period sophistication and is peacefully set in a quiet, leafy location.
Modern features are seamlessly blended into the period style, with gorgeous stained and polished floorboards, decorated ceilings and cornices (and high ceiling height) carried into the extension, while the well-thought-out design offers separation of living zones so that the kids can enjoy one end of the house while the parents have well needed relaxation at the other.
Easy-care single-level living is complemented by timber-decked entertaining in low-maintenance gardens, complete with a large playhouse for the kids – the perfect set-up for a BBQ with friends, while inside, a brilliant stone-dressed kitchen with Bosch and Miele appliances is a centrepiece to the free-flowing, light-filled living areas.
Accommodation is flexible and well designed, with a touch of indulgence throughout (including details like heated main bathroom floor and heated towel rails). Additional benefits include a powder room for guests, ducted heating and cooling, and off-street parking for at least two cars.
The location is first-rate, with great parks in the area (Hartwell Sports Ground metres away), great shopping, cafes and trams moments away on Toorak Road, Burwood station is a 10-minute stroll, and it’s just 25 minutes to the CBD. Within the Hartwell Primary School zone (feeder school to Camberwell High School) and within easy reach of leading private schools.
