About this listing
* Sunshine streams through the cathedral ceilings
* Rear of the house opens into an enchanting cottage garden
* A short walk to the river and beautiful parklands
A Victorian terrace with period charm and modern convenience. Enhanced by natural light, period features, high ceilings with ceiling roses, wide skirting, panelled doors and open fire places. It includes an arched hallway, 1 bedroom, living room, well appointed galley style kitchen opening to family room, and bathroom with unique sunken bath. A pretty rear garden ideal for outdoor living.
The rear section of the house was designed by architect A. Cronin and completed in 1983. It is a timeless fresh, light filled design with cathedral ceilings and windows a plenty. It looks current and contemporary.
It is a very long skinny house that I lovingly refer to it as "the pencil."
Guests will have access to 1 x bedroom, formal lounge, kitchen, bathroom, family area including dining, and front and rear garden areas.
It is walking distance to the Kew Junction shops, cafes and restaurants. The Kew Recreation Centre is at the top of the street along with bus and tram stops on each side of the street. The Yarra river and parklands are a beautiful 10 minute walk away, and within the area you can do bush walking, hire row boats and play golf.
We have wonderful providores, restaurants and cafes. I recommend Leo's fine food, Toscanos, Laurent bakery, cocoa patisserie, Via Verona for grocery, bakery goods and sweet treats. Restaurants; Mister Bianco, Centonove, Estivo, Charcoal Grill on the Hill, Hellentic Republic. Cafes; Ora Cafe, Percys Aeroplane, The Salmon Shop, Lil Boy Blue, Xocolatl (they make the most delicious hand made chocolates - truly special).
The tram runs along High Street which is a short walk to the top of our street. It is the 48 line, it goes out to Box Hill or into the city along Bridge Road (Richmond) into the CBD along Collins Street. A ride to the city should take approximately 30 minutes depending on the time of the day.
The bus stop is just up from the tram stop. This also goes to the CBD. It goes through the Kew Junction, along Johnston Street, into Lygon Street (the heart of our Italian restaurant district) and along Russell Street. This is a faster trip to the city than the tram.

I am a stylist who loves to create, I specialise in interiors, food and events.
I have lived and worked in many places around the world and am always ready for more of the same. I'm really enjoying my home town Melbourne and think it's full of whatever you would hope to find.
