Character Rich And Carefree In 1920's "Yurna"
17/36 Brighton Road, Balaclava
An icon of the local streetscape since the 1920's, Yurna's rich architectural character has endured for the better part of a century, witnessing the area's transformation from market gardens to cosmopolitan lifestyle precinct. All the romance of its early beginnings is captured in this ground floor single bedroom apartment creating a first home or investment of unique charm and personality. Entered via Brunning Street, brilliantly bright northern spaces feature the rarity of two adjoining living zones, one a generous sitting domain aside a traditional fireplace, the other a spacious dining area that hosts a spotless timber kitchen with gas cooking and original Juliette balcony. Cleverly tucked away, the cosy bedroom with robe is served by a renovated modern bathroom featuring stone benchtops and underbench laundry facilities. A hall entry, high strapped ceilings, hardwood timber floors and double sash windows all add to the individual appeal whilst abundant built in storage, heating, intercom entry and the inner city luxury of a lock up garage confirm its current day convenience. Enjoy trams at the doorstep, a quick walk to Carlisle Street shopping Ripponlea Station and Village cafes and St Kilda Botanical Gardens.
