Inspect By Appointment
A rare opportunity to acquire a property in the exclusive Vaucluse precinct, Howden Lodge is a stylish Victorian era family home set high on Richmond Hill in an exceptionally large and secluded country style garden.
The leafy seclusion of this family residence so close to Melbourne's CBD, the MCG and Yarra Park's sports venues balances a mood of country serenity and inner Melbourne convenience in a manner that very few properties can match.
The quiet and leafy gardens reach into the elegant rooms of a home where period integrity has been preserved and modern elements have been introduced to exceptional effect.
A series of inviting, separately zoned spaces for living, dining, entertaining and family enjoyment feature open fireplaces and superb polished floorboards beneath high ceilings throughout and a substantial stylish kitchen/everyday meals area.
Five bedrooms and three bathrooms accommodate in the comfort that is Howden Lodge's signature, enhanced by a dedicated study or home office and a deck that overlooks the tranquil garden backdrop.
The presence of a large cellar storage area, and secure access from Firebell Lane for up to four cars, adds to the attraction of this evocative address, set in some 953sqm, only moments from Richmond's retail and restaurants, with options for further development if desired (STCA).
