Treat yourself to a cosy city getaway at South Yarra Terrace where an enviable Melbourne CBD location meets earthy elegance. This one-bedroom Victorian cottage is perfectly positioned only a short walk from the Royal Botanic Gardens, cafes and a quick tram ride from the CBD. There’s much to love about this inner-city gem from the warmth of the compact interior and traditional fireplace, to the charming sun-soaked courtyard garden.
The beautifully detailed traditional Victorian façade is a welcoming sight on arrival at South Yarra Terrace. And as you step behind the white picket fence, you’ll discover a harmonious blend of contemporary elegance and traditional design elements. The compact footprint of this cottage is an endearing quality that encourages you to slow down and truly appreciate your surroundings.
A light-reflecting neutral palette is used throughout - from floor to ceiling - creating a sense of extra space while also drawing your attention to those high ceilings. That elegant neutral palette weaves into the light-filled bedroom, which sits just off the entryway. Large windows breathe in the light and a wall of wardrobes ensures you have plenty of storage. Down the short entryway you’ll discover the living and combined kitchen-dining, where those soaring ceilings shine as the space welcomes swathes of natural light. In the living space, a traditional open fireplace and sumptuous lounge invite you to settle in for a while. A mirrored wall is a luxurious backdrop in the intimate dining area, reflecting the round timber table, stylish, fully equipped kitchen and greenery from the courtyard. From here a doorway leads through to a laundry, a serene bathroom and sliding exterior doors.
It’s not only the lure of the sun that will draw you outside to the privacy of the French-inspired west facing courtyard. Whether it is a peaceful morning coffee, or you simply need some time to think, you have the ideal space out here with the antique table and chairs, vine-covered fence and stone paving.
And for your convenience, street parking is available at the front of the home.
