MAGNIFICENT ART DECO AT ITS VERSATILE BEST... While still reflecting its gracious past, this classic Art Deco residence of 10 main rooms - set over three levels - has just been stunningly renovated throughout to produce a distinctive home to suit the demands & varying needs of todays modern families. What was originally the extensive â€˜maids quartersâ€™ on the lower ground level is now a large, separate but integrated zone extending to three areas plus renovated bathroom ideal to serve as a home office, live-in nanny quarters, a teenage bedroom/retreat, in-law or visitor accommodation, etc. Ideally located close to shops, transport, freeway access -- and with Balwyn High School zoning - the homeâ€™s principal areas, including living and dining, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & study are set on the ground & 1st floor levels. Its elevated front entry terrace gives the property a commanding street presence while, inside, its north orientation floods virtually every room with natural light. The grandeur of its past lives on through its glorious array of original architectural highlights â€“ including extensive terrazzo stone, polished timber parquetry flooring; a grand, sweeping staircase with ornate wrought iron work, period decorative glass $ cabinetry features. The entry hall, where the staircase takes centre stage, links to an impressive, large living room crowned by an original elevated fireplace & beyond to the elegant dining room complete with built-in period buffet unit & glass doors to a private garden.
