318 HIGHETT ST, RICHMOND
2 beds, 1 bath, 0 car
Brimming with character and style, this two-bedroom, single-fronted Victorian terrace is nestled in a quiet, tree-lined street on the edge of the city and, according the owner, offers the ultimate Richmond experience.
It provides everything that people who live in Richmond come to the area to experience, she says - from the short walk to the restaurants and retail strips, to parks and the sporting facilities - as well as the proximity to the CBD.
The home features two spacious bedrooms, both with robes, carpet and block out blinds, that are off the hall. Freshly painted inside and out, the interior is set off by high ceilings, wooden floors and neutral walls punctuated by attractive windows and doors with leadlight detailing.
A generous dining area sits adjacent to the well-appointed kitchen, fitted with plenty of cabinetry, a five-burner stove and oven and a dishwasher. Set in the rear is the good-sized, light-filled bathroom that features charcoal floor tiles, a shower-over-bath and laundry fittings.
There is a fully-paved courtyard accessed through double doors and fringed by large, sculptural yuccas and a shed which can be used for storage or garden equipment.
Before she bought the house 10 years ago, the vendor re-stumped the property and put new floorboards throughout.
"What brings joy to me is the beautiful amount of natural light from a skylight in the living room," the vendor says. "I love to sit on a couch on a Saturday afternoon, reading a book with the light streaming in. It is one of my favourite activities in the house that I will miss."
The owner has permits for on-street parking which are available from Yarra City Council.
