186 GIPPS ST, ABBOTSFORD
3 beds, 2 bath, 1 car
This beautifully presented double-fronted Victorian residence displays an exquisite blend of classical elegance and contemporary style in a prime riverside pocket.
On a corner block covering more than 279sqm with a garage accessed via Charles St, the period home is only a short walk from Collingwood Station, Yarra River trails and Victoria Gardens.
The graceful iron-lace facade is complemented by a garden setting, while inside Baltic pine floors provide an echo of the style of the era.
Thoughtfully renovated, the original hallmarks are still retained, with high ornate ceilings and open fire places.
The three double bedrooms feature thick woolen carpets and plantation shutters, with ample storage in each. The master bedroom includes a striking contemporary ensuite, accessed through walk-in robes.
The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a good-sized family bathroom. A full laundry is adjacent.
The formal lounge area leads onto an undercover paved verandah, patio and established garden, as does the dining zone. The well-appointed, open-plan kitchen includes a freestanding ILVE stove and a meals area.
Other features include hydronic heating and plentiful storage throughout. The patio offers easy access to a shed, workshop and garage, with a WC.
It is the first time the home has been on the market in 30 years. Outside of the convenience of the location, it is close to prestigious schools, the Convent Arts Precinct and Eastern Freeway access. In addition, it is in the catchment zone for Collingwood College, Abbotsford Primary and Richmond West Primary.
The home offers a convenient lifestyle opportunity, with an option to further renovate or extend, subject to council approval.
