A sublime c1932 duplex residence that reflects the impeccable architectural credentials of Robert Bell Hamilton, Victoria’s most accomplished exponent of the inter-war Old English/Tudor Revival style, this property remains beautifully capable of meeting modern-day preferences for privacy, indoor luxury and outdoor entertaining. Clever ‘hush glass’ and construction that’s primarily triple brick contribute to the peace and quiet of proportions surrounded by the botanical beauty of established gardens where leafiness, loveliness and freedom from intrusion are daily delights.
Superb, independently accessed spaces include welcoming living and dining rooms featuring Tasmanian oak floorboards and a central kitchen equipped with granite surfaces and stainless-steel European appliances. Three bedrooms served by two fully renovated bathrooms contribute accommodation of exceptional character and consummate comfort to a home that’s completed by a substantial additional living space and a modern separate laundry.
Gorgeous garden aspects greet several rooms, accompanied by an outdoor entertainment area featuring an alfresco kitchen with a mains gas BBQ and pizza oven, bar fridge and a hot and cold water supplied kitchen sink. It’s a fabulous accompaniment to a property which is further enhanced by a secure two car garage and storage capacity, including clever wine storage in the hall cupboard.
Enjoy the garden lighting, the calming ambience, and the additional benefit of unlimited water for the garden’s health via an established bore, which was once the original well for “Little Croft” – a gorgeous, gated property where privacy is provided by a bespoke, handmade masonry front fence.
The land upon which Residence 1 509 Orrong Road sits was once part of the large Larnook Estate and was used as the vegetable garden and orchids for the estate, hence the name given to the total property, “Little Croft” which is Scottish for “Little Farm.” Beautifully private, brilliantly positioned, the seclusion of the spaces is matched by the convenience of their proximity to Malvern Central, High Street Armadale, trains from Armadale station and trams along Dandenong Road. A sanctuary of style in an exceptional setting.
