Written by realestateview.com.au in Buying on February 23, 2018

In Canterbury’s prestigious Golden Mile, 27a Mangarra Road is the perfect property for the discerning buyer. It’s an aspirational address with some of Melbourne’s best public and private schools right on your doorstep, and is just a few minutes’ walk to East Camberwell Station and the food and fashion hub of Camberwell Junction and Burke Road.

Situated on a 400m2 block, with 375m2 interior space and a 175m2 yard, the generous proportions of this home are rivaled only by the flawless finishes inside.


With four spacious bedrooms, a myriad of high-end inclusions and ample living space, this brand-new home has a lot to offer. Vaulted ceilings and an integrated, remote-controlled skylight hover over the kitchen which is equipped with Calacatta marble splashbacks, a Miele dual oven, and spacious butler’s pantry. The open-plan living and dining area backs onto the alfresco space for summer entertaining, and also boasts a Real Flame gas fireplace for the winter months.

The master suite, on the ground floor, is a real parent’s oasis, complete with courtyard access. The deluxe ensuite includes a freestanding bath, rain shower and dual vanity, finished with the top-of-the-line fittings from Villeroy & Bosche and Hansgrobe. Upstairs are three further bedrooms, each with their own ensuite, and a generous retreat area with a balcony overlooking the leafy street below. Throughout the home, pure wool carpets provide decadence underfoot.


“This is a great entry-level property for someone who’s looking for a luxury, brand new home on the Golden Mile in Canterbury,” says agent Maria Xu of Woodards Camberwell.

“The property is architecturally designed, with a six-star energy rating,” she adds, “and in the four bathrooms, you have all the high-end imported features from Europe – the Italian tiles, French shower equipment, German toilet.”


Versatile property with family appeal

Maria says Mangarra Road is a versatile property that will appeal to all types of buyers, and the flexible layout can evolve with the new owners. “It’s suitable for upsizers or downsizers, and would be a great investment with a high rental return,” she says.

The home is sure to attract keen interest from families, given the proximity to some of the best schools in Melbourne, including Canterbury Girls Secondary College, one of only four all-girls public high schools in the state. Sought-after private schools Camberwell Grammar and Camberwell Girls Grammar are also within walking distance, and the home is zoned for Camberwell High School.

On weekends, families will also appreciate the many great parks nearby. “When you walk out the front door you can turn left or right, and you have two beautiful parks, Belmont Park and Boroondara Park, both a short walk down either end your street,” Maria says. “It’s a very friendly neighbourhood, safe and secure, and perfect for families.”

Ducted and zoned heating and cooling ensure comfort downstairs, while upstairs there is a Daikin Intelligent Eye split system in each of the bedrooms and retreat area. Fully landscaped gardens, double remote garage and secure intercom entry complete the package.

27a Mangarra Road, Canterbury is scheduled for auction on Saturday 3rd March at 10am, with a price guide of $2.8 to $3.08 million. For further information, contact Maria Xu 0411 491 089, or Daniel Minuzzo 0409 407 603.
