If you are looking for a great family home without sacrificing anything (location, convenience to amenities, commuting time to the CBD via VLine, space, quality), then look no further than this beautiful family home in Moe, built in 1927 and lovingly restored. “Bailleul” is set on approximately 1966m2 and is zoned BOTH special residential (featuring the gorgeous restored family home) and commercial (featuring an enormous 60 x 40 office/shed accessed from the side that could be used for a business). Your privacy is paramount as it is set well back off Moore Street and features a long circular driveway. With 4-5 enormous bedrooms (one is presently being used as a study) it means that everyone can have their own space. The Master bedroom is enormous & even has its own romantic fireplace, original opulent chandelier, and a huge walk in dressing room fit for a celebrity. It presently adjoins an internal laundry which means that it would be fairly easy (STCA) to convert the laundry into the Ensuite of your dreams. The front of the house features a jaw dropping formal hallway complete with polished floorboards, original chandeliers, decorative cornices, with an enormous formal front lounge that opens off to the left. With 13 foot ceilings, decorative ceiling roses, Gas fireplace, original stained glass doors, built in storage, and quality carpet, you could be mistaken for thinking you had wandered into the glamorous front Parlour of a Toorak mansion. The rear ‘entertaining’ wing boasts brand new tiled flooring with under floor heating, & a large family dining room (with another fireplace) that can be accessed from the beautiful modern kitchen. Quality stainless steel appliances (900mm free standing TWIN oven and cook top), luxurious soft closing cabinetry and overhead cupboards, stone bench tops, and a view to the garden, makes this kitchen feel like it’s straight out of a lavish cooking show. French glass doors open out to a massive covered outdoor eating area that is an entertainer’s delight, as its big enough to BBQ and dine in-meaning that the family can enjoy eating & relaxing outdoors all year round. The huge renovated family bathroom is tastefully designed to incorporate a free standing tub, an oversized shower with frameless door, and quality tiling throughout.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, there is the potential to renovate UP, as the ceiling is SO vast that you could potentially add another 15 squares of living if you wished, subject to approvals. The ‘business’ side of the house- the large 60 x 40 shed- is located to the side of the property so that it doesn’t intrude on the house or large lawned rear yard (complete with original ‘outhouse’ of the 1927 era). It has 3 phase power, a separate shower and toilet, & an EPA compliant Grease Trap (perfect for a motor shop). Air compression lines run right across the shed, there is an optional Mezzanine Level available, a coonara, & the ability to add car hoists as the ceiling is so high. With a front office, the use is NOT limited to the motor industry, as together with this historic house & the huge front yard for parking, running a restaurant of some kind is also not out of the question (STCA). This property has everything on your ‘wish list’ whilst being close to everything you could possibly desire. Drive to Mt Baw Baw along the South Face Road, go explore Walhalla, or just enjoy your own private lavish back yard. Either way, inspection is a must as you won’t believe your eyes!
