Chic Italianate style home with Victorian character in Melbourne


We found this cool slice of real estate heaven on the real estate website JellisCraig, showcasing a preserved Italianate style exterior facade, located in Fitzroy, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. This classic style of architecture is characterized by its elaborate small entry porch and decorative Italianate columns, ornamental cornices and arched openings. This property is spread out over two levels (refer to floorplan layout below), with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Ornate Victorian nuances can be seen throughout the interiors, mixed with updated modern design trends, especially in the kitchen. An upstairs terrace overlooks the street, characterized by three ornate arches. This is a fantastic setting for city dwellers that love to be part of the hustle and bustle.


The interiors have plenty of notable features, such as the arched hallways and a formal dining and living room with beautiful crown molding and marble fireplaces. There is also a spacious lounge area that is comfortable and inviting for entertaining guests, also with a marble fireplace. A more casual dining area features french doors that opens out to a spacious balcony. Not only does this help to bring in plenty of natural light, it also helps to facilitate a nice flow for entertaining guests both indoors and out. An updated, luxurious kitchen area features white marble countertops, white subway tiles, high-end appliances and gold pendant light fixtures. Polished wood floors with radiant floor heating and plantation shutters completes the highlights to this stylish abode.


What We Love: This Italianate style home reflects a spectacular exterior facade with beautifully preserved interior details. Classic style has been intermingled with contemporary design to produce a stylish living space to call home. There is even a touch of romance that has us dreaming about this home with its marble fireplaces. We especially love the beautiful terraces and the entertainment deck. There is so much to offer in this beautiful home in the heart of Melbourne.

Readers, what do you think, would you consider buying this property?
