Set across three magnificent levels, and a stones’ throw from the heart of Melbourne, this stunning new home at 77 Eastern Road effortlessly combines inner-city luxe with parkside tranquillity.
Just minutes from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Albert Park Lake and Fawkner Park, this South Melbourne residence really is the best of both worlds.
Entry is via the ground floor, where two bedrooms (or one bedroom and a study) sit alongside a bathroom and laundry area. There is also entry through the garage at the rear, which fits two cars comfortably and securely – although with the amazing location and proximity to public transport, you won’t need to drive too often!
On the first floor, you’ll find the spacious living and dining areas, which open onto a spacious balcony overlooking the Eastern Reserve. “It is inner city living at its best,” says agent Brendan Coburn, of Marshall White Port Phillip. “You can walk to the city in just 15 minutes, but it’s also got a real country feel, because you’re looking out onto the lush, long trees and greenery,” he adds.
Family residence with all the mod cons
In the kitchen, the marble-topped island bench will delight budding chefs, as will the Bosch induction cooktop and ample storage, discreetly hidden behind the stylish white cabinetry.
The terrace area off the kitchen has spectacular views of the Eureka Tower, and is an excellent spot to entertain in the sunshine. Outdoor electricity, gas and water ensure the terrace and balcony spaces blend seamlessly with the interior, and the serving window allows for easy communication with your guests while you’re busy in the kitchen.
Throughout the living area, gorgeous Antique Oak floorboards sprawl underfoot, and a gas fireplace sits ready for the cooler months. The floating timber staircase adds even further wow factor, while underfloor heating, LED lighting and intercom entry complete this sophisticated package.
The top level is home to two further bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a study nook. In the master suite, floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony with park views add a touch of luxury, and a standalone bath, double vanity and modern matte-black tapware set the ensuite apart from the other bathrooms. All the bedrooms are generous in size, and feature floor-to-ceiling bespoke robes.
Families will appreciate the proximity to some of Melbourne’s best schools, including Melbourne Grammar, Wesley College, MacRobertson Girls High School and the Victorian College of the Arts. Clarendon Street and the South Melbourne Markets are just a short stroll away, as is the retail and dining mecca that is South Yarra. Or hop on a tram and head into the city centre to grab a bite to eat, catch a concert or footy match, minus the stress of car parking and fighting the traffic.
You can even walk if you like – and be right in the heart of the action in about 15 minutes! “It’s brand new, it’s secure and safe – and so close to the city! It’s a great space, in an awesome spot,” says Brendan.
77 Eastern Road, South Melbourne will be auctioned at 2.30pm on Saturday, 11th November 2017. For enquiries or to arrange a viewing time, contact Brendan Coburn on 0433 262 876 or Michael Paproth on 0488 300 800.
