23 TORRINGTON STREET, CANTERBURY
The elegant charms and refined grandeur of the Edwardian era have been gently tweaked by a tasteful and period-sensitive renovation into a 21st Century home that is sure to catch the eye. As it highlights 4 substantial bedrooms and a lavish al fresco flow, this solid, red brick, home of character and heritage is a wonderful family residence in one of eastern Melbourne’s most prestigious leafy locations.
Sensitively modernised, the home retains its high ceilings, fine detail, polished timber flooring and leadlight windows as it flows past a traditional front veranda and through a broad entry foyer towards a contemporary open-plan living arrangement at the rear. With stone kitchen benches, volumes of attractive two-pack cabinetry and premium appliances, the home caters simultaneously to aesthetics and to functionality, as it opens to a broad back deck that is partially undercover and suited to year-round al fresco living and entertaining.
The master bedroom has been brilliantly designed to offer a superbly styled private ensuite and walk-in robes to lucky parents – indeed, both the ensuite and the main bathroom are vogue designer domains, fully-tiled with frameless screened showers and stone benches.
A formal lounge is warmed by a fire place and blessed with a bay window as it offers families an all-important extra living zone. Along with the lounge room, 3 of the bedrooms feature traditional open fire places.
Picture perfect, inside and out, the home also features sleek plantation shutters, ducted heating, split system heating and cooling as well as a carport and plenty of driveway parking.
Families are sure to relish a leafy position so close to elite Melbourne schools – Camberwell Girls Grammar, Canterbury Girls Secondary College and Camberwell Grammar are all very local, whilst you have Canterbury Railway Station, Maling Rd cafes and even Camberwell Junction all very local.
