About our home

Our free-standing 1916 Victorian home with surround porch, on a historic-overlay block, is as close as you can get to Melbourne CBD and still live in a village like setting--on a large park even, with green trees surrounding, and a yard. The house is period furnished, a charming 1916 Edwardian/Victorian single-fronted family home with many original period features including three fireplaces and a panelled drawing room. King size very comfortable bed in master BR, French doors open onto DR/LR with fireplace. Pannelled library. Sunny study/BR2 with French doors to wrap-around porch (not pictured in photos). Appliances are modern. Kensington village's quaint shops, cafes are in walking distance. Train is half a block away, and it's only two stops on the train to Southern Cross Station (CBD). Friendly neighbors as well! Car swap optional.

Best of both worlds. Easy city access and historic village environs. We looked long and hard for this combination, and know you will love it as much as we do.
