15 Wirksworth Street Herne Hill 3218 VIC
Ahead of its Time: Thoughtfully Designed, Solidly Built & Meticulously Maintained
This impeccably cared for three bedroom home balances elegant c.1960s architectural influences with modern features ahead of its time. It owes its irresistible appeal to a beautiful blend of original character and sensitive, partial renovation.
Set on a well-manicured 539sqm (approx.) block with native garden surrounds, this lovely family home presents spacious living, kitchen and dining areas, where original touches have been retained - high ceilings, wide corridors and original cornice work. The lounge room has a classic retro timber and glass feature wall and a gas-heater with feature surrounds. Wide expanses of glass bring in streams of natural sunlight to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere throughout the home.
The kitchen contains a gas cook-top stove and range hood, ample cupboard space and the original retro glass display cabinet. All bedrooms feature wall-to-wall built-in cupboards, two at ceiling height. The floorplan includes a large laundry with additional storage space. A central bathroom and separate WC service the home, both of which have been updated in recent years with modern shower, sink and toilet. The bathroom includes a delightful bathtub of the era.
Outside, a 3000L rainwater tank services the home and supports an in-ground irrigation system. The property contains a single lock-up garage and garden shed, and the generous driveway provides space for additional off-street parking for up to three vehicles.
Located a short drive from the cultural delights and cafe district of Shannon Avenue and Pakington Street, this home also has the lifestyle advantages of the emerging hub that is the nearby Minerva Road shopping district, with the Herne Hill Reserve, Hurst Reserve, St. Joseph's College, Clonard College and Manifold Heights Primary school all within close proximity.
