This is a great family home in the prestigious Box Hill high school zone, located in a quiet street close to shops, transport, and facilities, and 4 minute’s walk from beautiful Bolton Park. Situated on a large block of approximately 697m2, this home has been partially renovated to extremely high specifications to ensure you have the house you’ve always dreamt of in a much sought after location. What makes this property unique is that it has TWO street frontages. The main entrance is from the prestigious and highly sought after Margaret Street, whilst the rear (with a cross over already in place) backs onto Skipton Street.
With 3 good sized bedrooms that you can add your own finishing touches to, the renovations to the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry have to be seen to be believed. With floor to ceiling marble tiles, the bathroom has an oversized rain water showerhead shower space, bath, vanity, and wall mounted toilet. The original feature windows have been lovingly restored ensuring that the room is light filled and elegant. The kitchen has quality stainless steel appliances (Smeg 900mm oven & Highland 900mm cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, and a Schweigen Silent Undermount 900mm range), soft closing gloss custom cabinetry, and an enormous butler’s pantry complete with sink and additional custom cabinetry including a slide out pantry. A huge skylight and elevated views out over the back yard makes the kitchen bright and light and spacious. The front formal lounge has enormous windows facing the front & side garden, polished hardwood floors, and a state of the art remote controlled fireplace. There is a sunken sunroom with polished hardwood floors leading down from the kitchen that has a wall of stacker doors to the rear yard & deck meaning that you can open the entire wall to let the outside in!
The back yard is huge- with plenty of room for the kids & pets to play, enjoy the established veggie patch/fruit orchard, OR for you to develop, STCA. With gas ducted heating, solar panels, extra insulation to the rear of the house, and new colorbond roofing, you can move straight in & restore the period features at your leisure OR develop the site (STCA) to make full use of the 2 street frontages.
Box Hill is located approximately 14km east from Melbourne’s CBD and is connected via rail, bus, and a fantastic road network (M3/East Link). It is a great place to settle down and raise a family, largely due to the sheer number of sought after schools, both public and private (Primary, Secondary, and even Tertiary) that are within the suburb. With restaurants, shopping complexes (Centro/Box Hill Central), and loads of recreational spaces, it attracts a great mix of residents and has been considered a ‘growth’ suburb for quite some time.
