Superbly renovated with seamless indoor-outdoor connection and glorious natural light, this impressive, 3 bedroom home was once the residence of former Australian Prime Minister Julie Gillard. A statement in understated style and simple elegance, the home manages to evoke the feel of a ship heading out to sea, in a rewarding position just a few minutes from Altona Beach.
At its heart, the home’s stone-topped kitchen is appointed with stainless steel appliances and arranged around a central island bench that provides a wonderful place to gather, while the flow through to dining, a gas log fire-heated living, and a large north-facing deck is delightful. Importantly, a separate lounge is warmed by another gas log fireplace and offers an alternative living zone.
Sheltered towards the home’s rear, the master bedroom has been finished with walk-in robes, its own ensuite, and an easy connection to the sunny joy of the deck for a genuine sense of sanctuary. Meanwhile, the remaining bedrooms are each appointed with substantial built-in robes and are conveniently set near the central bathroom.
Set on a magnificent allotment of 603 spare meters (approx.) amidst attractive gardens and with driveway parking for at least 3 vehicles, the home also features clever European laundry, split system heating, and air conditioning, as well as a garden shed and gorgeous polished hardwood flooring throughout.
Directly opposite the highly regarded Altona College, the home sits within easy reach of all the cafes, shopping, and dining of Civic Parade and city-bound trains from Westonia Railway Station, while the sands of Altona Beach are just a couple of minutes away and the M1 Freeway can be accessed easily.
