AUCTION THIS SATURDAY AT 12PM - Open for inspection from 11.30am
With a glorious past and a magnificent future Lancedeen is the jewel in the crown of prestigious Oakleigh Hill. Homes in this tree-lined boulevard are tightly held. In fact, Lancedeen has only been owned by 3 families since its beginnings c. 1901, and it has been in the one family since approx 1944. A fine example of the lovely Queen Anne federation style, this superb home has been given a heritage overlay. It is impossible not to fall in love with its beauty and its superlative garden setting. Wrapped around the house, the lush garden is a constant source of delight with its secret areas, a birdbath here, a table in the sunshine there, garden beds curved lazily around a lawn and everywhere the songs of birds. There is potential for dual living within the home, which is largely untouched by renovation. While the floorplan offers scope for changing the use of rooms, the real magic of the makeover will be in incorporating the fantastic period features. You'll love the Baltic pine floorboards, the soaring ceilings, the handsome open fireplaces in so many rooms, pressed metal ceilings in some rooms, stained glass, ceiling roses, picture rails. There is a wide entrance hall, a grand formal dining room, formal lounge room, several sitting rooms, 3 bedrooms, a kitchen with adjacent meals area, a kitchenette, sunroom and 2 bathrooms. It is so exciting to explore and to imagine how it would look once you action your own ideas for the future of this incredible residence. This wonderful property occupies a huge allotment of approx 1143sqm approx on the corner of Logie Street. On the bus route, the property is in easy strolling distance to the heart of vibrant Oakleigh shopping village with its shops, offices, cafes and trains. It is convenient to Chadstone, Monash University, schools, reserves, recreation, major access roads & everything!
