In Elsternwick, Melbourne, an Edwardian-style home recently underwent a total revamp, that rebuilt it from the inside out complete with Painted Vanity Unit with Travertine Top in the bathrooms, whilst retaining the Edwardian outer facade that the building had since its first construction. The house recently went up for auction this early August, valued at close to $3 million.
The renovation was, in effect, a complete rebuilding of the property, but, as mentioned before, the old, Edwardian facade remains, with a bluestone-paved front garden to welcome people, with a side entrance for that sense of privacy most people look for in a home. The new look of the house features walls of black-framed glass to let in natural light, spanning the height of the house.
Inside the house, after turning left after the entrance is the home’s large formal lounge for welcoming people and holding residents. The lounge holds an angled fireplace for warming hands, as well as a leadlight bay window for allowing natural lighting in the home.
Heading deeper into the home, past the long hallway after the lounge, are two bedrooms, to the left. The first bedroom acts as the master bedroom has a view of the front verandah and its tessellated-tile design and the garden, complete with several storage cabinets for wall-to-wall storage. Behind the first bedroom is the second bedroom, which behaves as more of a side bedroom, with additional furniture providing additional storage space.
To the right of the bedrooms are the bedrooms. The primary bathroom features a Painted Vanity Unit with Travertine Top, which is designed to contrast well with the luminous American oak under it.
To the northwest of the primary bathroom is a secondary bathroom, acting as the powder room, and to it left and right are two additional rooms, with the laundry room on the left, and the third bedroom on the right, following a line of hallway storage space.
The kitchen possesses a cool aesthetic, with a long island bench and preparation areas in the kitchen complete with Carrara marble, and a Japanese tiled splashback area and a lot of storage space, complete with walk-in pantry.
The house, located on 30 Shoobra Road, Elsternwick, recently went up for auction, with a $2.4-$2.64 million price range, last August 19, with Biggin& Scott in charge of the auction.
