The best of Edwardian charm with the comforts of modern upgrades — this is a home brimming with character, significantly enhanced by more than just a contemporary extension.

The original character of the house means the ceilings are high, the floorboards are polished, and stained-glass windows are a feature throughout the home. Speaking of floorboards, they have been completely stripped back and restored to their original condition throughout the home, along with a fresh coat of paint on all walls.

The layout of the home means that the vaulted ceilings and skylights flood the space in light, with a floorplan allowing air and light to flow organically. The bright hallway leads you to three oversized bedrooms, two expertly fit with built-in-robes and the third with custom built-in shelving. All bedrooms have plush new carpets with the master also including an original ornate fireplace.

In new homes, bathrooms are barely the size of the laundry. Here, the main bathroom rivals the master bedroom in grandeur and proportions. The luxury of space creates an environment that welcomes intentionally getting lost in time with a beautiful bath, clean tiles, and storage-clad cabinetry.

Heading towards the back of the home, the kitchen has been expertly renovated with a blend of stunning form and clever function — from the brushed brass handles to the Miele and Fisher & Paykel appliances.

The open plan living area fuses with the outdoor entertainer's courtyard to create one generous space of wellbeing. Northern sunlight floods the back garden, and consequently your couch, too, while the integrated heating and cooling system does its thing to regulate the temperature regardless of the sun. Additional benefits include rear access.

A location fiercely manifested by all south-siders, you’re sitting at equally convenient access to both Glenferrie Road and High Street — within 200 metres and practically on your doorstep. Some of Melbourne’s best dining means more than just dinner. Cafés, wine bars, and speciality restaurants are at your disposal like Ned’s Bakery, Alberts, Moby, and Melbourne’s favourite butcher — Victor Churchill. Armadale and recreation go together like downward dog and vinyasa, with the likes of Willow Urban Retreat (the café and the spa) and popular Pilates and yoga studios within arm’s reach.

Public transport like the 16 and the 6 tram are around the corner, with Armadale railway station only 900 metres away. Union Street Reserve and playground is a short walk from your front door, and High Street’s retail scene — proudly known as Melbourne’s premier fashion, home, and wellbeing strip — is a dangerously short walk.


A perfectly detailed and bright home that reflects the lifestyle synonymous with Armadale, proving the age-old adage wrong: you can buy the best house on the best street.
