90 GIPPS STREET EAST MELBOURNE 4 2.5 2
With its strong lines, generous sense of space and a seamless blend between old and new, there's lots to love about this East Melbourne terrace.
The Victorian residence has been meticulously renovated and features luxurious interiors by Sue Carr.
Carr's 50 years in the industry has resulted in many stunning spaces in Melbourne; the new owners of this home will be privileged to live in one of the talented interior designer's beautiful creations.
"I think the way the home flows and is filled with so much natural light ... it is not your normal East Melbourne terrace," says agent Sarah Close. "Carr design group did an incredible job making this a more liveable and a functionally modern day terrace."
Reflecting a perfectionist's approach to exquisite design, this breathtaking house has numerous light-filled formal and informal living spaces.
The European-appointed kitchen is contemporary and streamlined, and leads directly out to the striking landscaped outdoor entertaining area.
An inviting option for alfresco dining, it's private from the outside world, yet fully accessible to the rooms around it, making this a home to enjoy with friends and extended family.
"The owners have had so much fun entertaining their friends all year round," says Sarah. "It has a fully retractable steel roof that closes all the way over, so it's perfect for a hot summer's day or a warm summer's night with a few sprinkles of rain!"
There are three bedrooms, the main bedroom a generously-sized space with a walk-in robe and ensuite.
The bathroom is flooded with natural light thanks to the feature window and is minimalism at its finest, allowing the freestanding egg-shaped bath to take centrestage.
Those working from home will love the open office space, while the more formal dining and lounge rooms are ideal for kicking back after hours - or perhaps more entertaining.
Wine connoisseurs are sure to be impressed with the large cellar, with enough floor-to-ceiling storage to hold all your favourite varieties.
There's a two-car garage so you can also store your vehicles safely, and year-round comfort is assured thanks to the heating and cooling system.
"This is perfect for an empty nester or downsizer who might still have some children living at home, as there is so much space and breakaway rooms for everyone," says Sarah, noting there's also an approved permit for a lift to be built.
A blue chip position in the heart of East Melbourne, the house is right on the doorstep of the city. It's just a 10 minute walk to the CBD and only a five-minute stroll to the MCG - with Round 1 just around the corner, it doesn't get much better than this.
