328 MARY ST, RICHMOND
2 beds, 1 bath, 1 car
A conversion by Olaver Architecture three years ago has transformed this roomy parkside cottage close to the Yarra into a captivating, light-filled designer home just a short walk from the vibrancy of Church St.
Lofty ceilings, Baltic pine flooring and intelligently placed glazing lead into a super-sized open plan living area incorporating rich materials and flanked by a custom-built study nook and breakfast bar, ultimately opening out to a north-west facing garden.
Two generous robed and carpeted bedrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen with Miele appliances, featuring walnut joinery and soft touch cabinets, and a designer natural marble and stone bathroom make up the formal accommodation.
The home is further enhanced by a concealed laundry, ample storage and includes hydronic heating, fluted glass and designer LED lighting.
Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac just a few minute's walk to the Main Yarra Trail, a buyer is placed in the heart of one of the most livable precincts in Melbourne.
While close to the river, it is still right in the thick of things.
"You go around the corner then you are in Church St, where you have restaurants, pubs, retail and the hustle and bustle of the area," the vendor said.
"Six or seven houses down is the Yarra, where you've got a cycling track and a running track. There also is a reserve right across the street. There's usually plenty of parking.
"You open the door and you get a feeling of space. Almost like you are not in Richmond.
"We've been living in this house since 2014. Since lockdown the park has been beautified by the council. We use it daily.
"Our family is growing and, unfortunately, we just need to move on."
