Hawthorn 53 Manningtree Road
Private Auction Wednesday 8th July
Some styles are always in demand, some settings are constantly sought after - both these elements are key to the enduring appeal of this elegant Herbert & Howes Victorian, its flexible, friendly proportions and its outstanding family position. An external image that expresses all the character of its era provides an evocative prelude to a series of superb spaces, some period, others modern, all instantly attractive. The classical elegance of an arched entrance hall sets the tone for refined, renovated original rooms including a charming sitting room and three of the five bedrooms, featuring a main bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite. Upstairs, two further bedrooms, a central second bathroom and beautifully versatile retreat reflect the family focus of a home that has so stylishly, successfully moved with the times. Downstairs living/dining areas designed to catch lots of natural light are accompanied by an impressively appointed kitchen with a walk-in pantry before flowing to a welcoming outdoor backdrop. The effect, inside and out, is irresistible. Ample off street parking completes a captivating family picture close to several leading schools, Glenferrie Road's shopping precinct and public transport options.
