Relax in an elegant 19th C terrace, 10 minutes walk to the city centre through the Fitzroy Gardens, with the MCG, Tennis Centre and city eating and shopping venues nearby. ‘Hazelwell’ is a grand Victorian home on a magnificent block of land in the premium suburb of East Melbourne.
From the days of grandeur, this beautifully restored c1851 three bed room and two living area residence, sits on a very large block for this part of Melbourne, approx 450sqm. This home is full of character, charm and history and is just delightful with lots of modern touches! Our home was originally lived in Ivo Bligh, the captain of the English cricket team to whom The Ashes were presented and our master bedroom fireplace is where Ashes cricket wickets were once burnt after the game.
Hazelwell is our family home when we live in Melbourne, we travel regularly and when we are not living in Melbourne we offer our home to others to live in. The style of the home is quite modern, yet there are many historical touches including the intricate pressed metal ceilings each with a unique patterns for each room (which I love staring up at whilst in bed – always finding a new pattern inside the patters), four marble fireplaces, and original wide board timber flooring.
The home is in a very quiet part of the city, and the only sounds you hear are those of the occasional bird visiting the garden. We are in a quiet and respectful part of the city, there are only houses in this part of our street (no apartments), and our home is very unique because it is single level and double fronted, and is set back further from the street compared to many other homes and this provides a very spacious front garden. We are the only home in the street with a front garden large enough to have a grassed area.
You will love the sun rising in the morning and sitting on the front porch whist you have a coffee, being able to walk to several “milk bars”/general stores and small supermarkets, wine shops, cafes, restaurants and delis get your daily supplies.
Hazelwell is very well appointed with:
- 3 bedrooms (the main bed room has a king size bed with a beautiful handmade frame/bed head from a salvaged slab of Messmate by a local carpenter) plus a spacious ensuite
- the second bed room has a king single bunk bed (pictures need to be updated)
- the third bed room has 2 king size single beds which can be joined to make a king bed
- a dining room area in the kitchen has a handcrafted 8 seater dining table (made from the same slab of Messmate as our bed by our local carpenter)
- there are two bathrooms (2 toilets, 2 showers, 1 bathtub)
- Wifi, 100cm LCD television with 17 digital TV channels, Netflix, BOSE surround sound system and DVD player, plus there is a second TV in the main bed room
- The kitchen has a Miele oven and Miele 4 burner gas stove, Miele dishwasher, toaster, kettle, coffee percolators, and all the crockery/pots/pans you will require to cook, plus generous storage area and large fridge, and many beautiful items including our “Bourgeta” French copper saucepans and pots
Our home has hydronic heating to every room keeping an even temperature 24 hours a day during the colder months, and reverse cycle air conditioning (however this is not needed often as the house is double brick and keeps rather cool in summer)
The laundry is located within the main bathroom and there is a wash tub, Miele washing machine and Miele clothes dryer
The living room is open plan leading to a second living space, both rooms have soaring 3.4 meter high ceilings (with intricate pressed metal designs), we have been using the second living space as a play room for our children, however it could be set up as a second sitting room, or study (we can provide a desk and chair, printer, photocopier etc. if these are required).
The backyard is perfect space for relaxing on the outdoor lounge chairs, there is a gas Weber BBQ and also a Weber Kettle BBQ fired by coals. Our vegetable garden always has an abundance of herbs, and depending on the season there will be a variety of vegetables to keep your plate full
There are a many restaurants, cafes and bars just a few minutes walk away, whilst Melbourne's most famous cosmopolitan shopping districts of Bridge Road, Smith Street and Brunswick Streets are just a hop, skip and jump away.
You can access Collins Street in the Central Business District (less than 1km) but walking less than 9 minutes walk and some other local points of interest are:
Melbourne University (3km)
RMIT City Campus (1.7km)
Australian Catholic University (650meters)
Hospitals (St Vincent's - 1.1km, Royal Melbourne Hospital – 2.9km, Epworth Richmond – 900m)
Powlett Street is a magestic tree lined street, boasting the longest continuous row of double story terrace homes in Australia (between Gipps and Hotham Street), where there are mature elms and beautiful inner city mansions and lots of little laneways to make every walk around the suburb unique.
If you have young children, there is a lot for them in the home and the local area for them. The second living space has a children’s table and chair set, plus there are books, a cupboard busting with art supplies, and lots of toys. Our children’s bikes are there for you to use (our children are 2 and 4) and so are our adult bikes, there is a trampoline for the back yead, and there is a fenced children’s area and play equipment on the corner of Grey Street and Powlett Street, just 100 meters away. There is also a play ground in the Fitzroy Gardens (just 300m away), and in the park opposite the 7-11 Store on Wellington Parade (500m away).
There are tennis courts for hire in the next street, plus Melbourne city hire push bikes, car share cars within a few minutes walk (FlexiCar and GreenShareCar), and there are many guys and public swimming pools nearby. We provide our bikes for you to use during your stay.
You will have access to the whole home during your stay.
