About the property

Not too far, not to close, 3 minutes walk from Lygon St restaurants, cinema, shopping. Melbourne University, RMIT, Brunswick and fashionable Gertrude St, the Carlton Gardens, Melbourne Museum & IMax 3D Cinema and the Royal Exhibition Buildings are a 10-minute walk, or 20 minutes stroll into the city. Alternatively, you can catch the tram or bus that runs only a street away, into the CDB. From here, you are in easy reach of the Botanical Gardens, MCG or Tennis Centre, South Bank, the casino & Jeff's Shed, Albert Park or onto the beach. It's a convenient easily accessible location from which to head out in any direction or stay in and enjoy the quiet space.

A direct bus to the Parkville Hospital Complex is a few minutes toward the city in Grattan Street.

Behind the 1860's facade is a welcoming modern residence with lots of character, that opens into a green sunken garden and internal deck. It is a private, quiet home that was our home for almost forty years. It was designed as a beautiful and practical family space. We are now very happy to share this with you to make it "your home" while you are here. It is a perfect place to relax or to create a base for your holiday or work. Will suit a family, a couple or groups of friends.

We like to customise the details to suit each guest, there are plenty of "what's on" brochures, maps and tram time-tables.

A space for family and friends

There are 3 bedrooms with comfortable real beds, that will sleep 7. Two of the rooms have queen beds, the other a double and a single bed. There are 2 large living spaces separated by a small garden and an outside deck area, and a really great functional kitchen if you decide to dine in. The bathroom has a child-friendly bath, and a separate shower - and skylight for loads of natural light. There is a second toilet downstairs. If staying longer, the laundry with soaking tubs, sorting shelf, ironing facilities, dryer and drying racks is very convenient.

The larger living area has a smart TV, internet hub, charging dock and a gas log fire - perfect for the colder nights. On warmer evenings, open wide the dining room doors to enjoy the deck for outside living.

The bedrooms include plenty of hanging space & storage - for all your purchases.

For those with a car, there is parking in the streets - on either side of the property. Further directions on parking on booking request.

The house is split level, there are stairs, so please see the plan of the house included in the photos to check if it will be suitable for you.

This home would especially suit short secondments or relocating families, and we will assist you to make your stay happy and comfortable. We have moved a number of times ourselves, so we know what makes the difference in this time.

Secondary schools are easily accessible from here, tram via the city, down St Kilda road or bus along Elgin / Johnston St to Kew and Hawthorn. Melbourne University High School is a short walk across the University of Melbourne campus.

Special events

For those that have been to the Australian Open or Grand Prix or other sports in Melbourne's arenas, and need to escape the crowds, come home and relax and watch the replays.

Excellent and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and were greeted by the very kind owner. We were shown around and presented with a gift basket. The home is very spacious and warm. There were 5 adults staying but there are fiercely for families with young children. The house is located close bus and trams and about 40 min walk to the city. There are lovely cafes and restaurant very close there is a Woolworths 5 min walk. It is close to the old Melbourne gaol and parks . It a very clean home with plenty of room. Not far to the children's animal farm it worth a look.
