Auction: Saturday 15 June 11:00 AM

$4,100,000 - $4,510,000

'Biralee' - Grand Queen Anne Family Home

Occupying a prime spot along one of the area's most prestigious streets, 'Biralee', derived from the indigenous word for children, has proven an apt name given its proximity to a wealth of esteemed schools.

Built in 1914, this landmark home, a veritable Grand Dame of Essendon, boasts Queen Anne revival architecture, with ornate glazing, leadlight, decorative finials and chimneys, while a later rear extension has been designed to reflect the original style.

With just three owners over its lifetime, the expansive layout and impressively proportioned rooms are tailor made for families looking for generationally friendly space with room to grow.

The current floorplan, over two storeys and peppered with heritage details throughout, features formal lounge and dining, downstairs bedroom with small walk-in dressing room, ensuite (spa bath) and dual accessed powder, laundry, open meals/living with glorious garden outlook, and large kitchen boasting quality appliances.

Upstairs, an original bathroom (shower over tub), three further bedrooms, plus a lounge and sunroom present a series of adaptable rooms rich with potential.

Surrounded by manicured gardens, sideway fernery, established hedging and heritage trees, a sparkling solar heated pool, separate spa, bluestone paved BBQ terrace and water feature, on a sizeable 1299sqm (approx.) block, this gracious property will enchant.

Additional drawcards include central heating, air-conditioner, oversized remote double garage/workshop, off-street driveway parking for multiple cars and secret attic room!

An outstanding opportunity for families looking to stamp their own personality and create the dream home in a tightly held location with immediate access to Lowther Hall, PEGS, Rose Street Cafes, shops and Essendon Station.
