Chellow Dene c.1929, Love the History, Look to the Future
House Sold - Black Rock VIC
Live with historic beauty or make history with a landmark development. Situated in the heart of the Golden Triangle just 200m from the Half Moon Bay clifftop, this grandly proportioned approx 6,953sqft/ 646 sqm corner property holds one of the past’s most substantial period residences…but also looks to the future with architect’s Peter Wright plans and permits for two luxury homes!
Designed and built as the home of notable architect, Melbourne Lord Mayor and Knight of the Realm, Brigadier Sir Bernard Evans, Chellow Dene c.1929 is rich with period detail including detailed timber-work, decorative (and even domed) ceilings and lavish leadlight – including a ‘storybook’ panel of the architect’s original English village. Offering up to six bedroom, three bathroom accommodation, this substantial period home offers grand period living with only a minimal upgrade needed to fulfil its blue-chip potential.
Already extended with fine formal lounge and dining rooms plus a lofty vaulted ceiling family zone, the home features a vast balconied first-floor bedroom sized to double as a sea-breeze third living zone, a classic Baltic pine kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and quality bathrooms including an ensuite. With a sunny north-facing rear deck and undercover parking from Smeed St., this centrally heated and air-conditioned home offers a rewarding base for future renovation ….or at the very least, an opportunity for grand and gracious living until it’s time create a new landmark, as designed of one of today’s most prominent local architects, Peter Wright.
A fitting replacement to the original home, this grand new project comprises two highly-marketable four bedroom (dual-suite), 3.5 bathroom, triple zone residences, each featuring private basement garaging, lift-access over all three levels and a sunny northerly rear aspect.
Meeting the market with an in-demand ground-level master-suite and well-scaled formal, family and first-floor living zones, both designs feature a streamlined interior kitchen plus a BBQ kitchen in a north-facing al fresco room, and generous private open space on three sides. Already approved and all ready to be commence, this cutting-edge project is set to rewrite history on this solid gold corner.
