5 Inner Crescent BRIGHTON, VIC 3186Sold
Highfield c.1889 Grand Victorian with Hidden Depths
House Sold - BRIGHTON VIC
A fine Victorian villa centred in the true heart of Brighton, Highfield c.1889 goes beyond grand period living to offer hidden depths – with a discreet second storey rising to a panorama-view tower and vast approx 1100sqm land fanning back to a sweeping rear boundary.
Rich with period detail, including lofty 3m-plus ceilings and marble fireplaces, this substantial five bedroom, three bathroom home is beautifully re-conceived for today’s family living with a gracious ground-floor master-suite (with fitted robe area and skylit ensuite) and a separate-entry children’s wing of bedrooms and bathrooms over two levels topped by a bay-glimpse city-view turret.
Following a traditional floorplan with beautiful formal lounge and dining rooms plus a library-sized home-office, the home opens out to the sun with an expansive window-walled family zone facing north-west over a glass-fenced heated pool, decking and broad lawns. With a glossy granite kitchen (featuring dual pyrolitic ovens) centre-stage and classic detail including recycled Kauri pine floors and a gas-fireplace framed by media cabinetry, the home offers every contemporary convenience – including ducted heating, reverse-cycle air-conditioning, fitted robes and sound-wiring (inside and out). This timeless beauty looks to the future too, with Smartphone-operated 6 camera CCTV and 4.4KWs of latest-technology Mia Sole thin-film solar-panels – virtually invisible on the slate-roof.
Stretching to uniquely broad, brilliantly sun-catching proportions, the property’s park-like grounds hold their own hidden treasures – with rear 3-car open-garaging (from Barkly St), a kids’ paradise backyard and a fruitful chef’s garden. Steps to Firbank and BGS, four blocks to Church St and a walk to stations, the primary school and bay, this is period-perfect family living in the inner circle.
