Featured Home: 49 Wrights Terrace, Prahran
October 11, 2017
An impeccably modernised Victorian-era home with double street frontage, located in one of Melbourne’s premier suburbs? Yes please!
The stunning freestanding residence at 49 Wrights Terrace, Prahran offers all of this and more, and buyers are sure to flock to the auction later this month.
With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sunny north-facing yard, this gorgeous home is just 6.5 kilometres from the CBD, in the heart of Prahran. From the street, the property has timeless elegance befitting its period status, with delicate white cast-iron filigree lacework decorating the front porch balustrades – a classic characteristic of Melbourne homes built in the 1920s. But when you step inside, you’ll be transported into an elegant, modern family home.
“It’s fully renovated, but it remains your classic double-fronted Victorian, which seems to be the Prahran formula,” says Jellis Craig’s Mark Robertson, who is managing the sale.
The main bedroom makes the perfect retreat, with its beautiful ornate fireplace and plush grey carpet. “It’s got a great master suite, with a walk in robe and a really good ensuite,” Mark adds. Said ensuite, finished in crisp, modern shades of grey and white, also features a rain shower. The other two bedrooms both have built-in wardrobes, and are conveniently located with easy access to the sleek main bathroom.
Ideal spot for cosmopolitan Melbournites
The gourmet kitchen boasts Asko and Blanco appliances, quality stone finishes and soft-closing drawers, as well as a generous walk-in pantry. Sleek white cabinetry and an island bench complete this space.
With gorgeous oak floorboards underfoot, you will love the open-plan living area, which is bathed in natural light thanks to its northern aspect and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Outside, the private courtyard features a BBQ and paved alfresco area, ideal for entertaining, alongside a handy shed. “It’s really well set up for indoor-outdoor entertaining, with the full glass doors and beautiful stone kitchen,” says Mark.
He adds that the location is phenomenal: “It’s only a short stroll to Hawksburn Village, or you could take the tram to the Victoria Gardens shopping centre or the iconic Chapel Street boutique strip.”
There’s also Orrong Romanis Reserve close by, with a playground for the kids and off-leash area for your four-legged friends. City commuters can leave the car at home, with Toorak station and tram stops close by. The new owners will be able to relax in comfort all year round, with reverse cycle cooling and hydronic heating, while an alarm system ensures security.
Scheduled for auction on Saturday 21st October at 2pm, 29 Wrights Terrace, Prahran is a must-see property. To enquire, or arrange an inspection, contact Mark Robertson on 0416 042 204, or Andrew McCann on 0414 643 744.
