One of the rarest finds are properties that back straight on to the Yarra River. The Real Estate Conversation in an article published on Feb 27, 2018 reported that less than 200 homes in the greater Melbourne area have direct Yarra River access and so this is a real gem.
Set on approx 1034sqm of prime real estate in sought-after Hutchinson Avenue, Warrandyte is this well-kept 50-year-old painted cedar cottage. The home has been designed with the view being at the forefront - a large open plan living space with floor to ceiling windows that capture the treetops and beyond in privacy. The living area also features an American Lopi wood heater perfect for setting the mood on winter days as well as a split air conditioner and central heating for all year comfort.
The kitchen is very functional with gas cook top, electric fan forced oven and generous meals area. There are 3 bedrooms in total with the master bedroom appreciating the same aspect over the Yarra River parklands. The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub for bathing the kids as well as having a relaxing soak after a busy day.
Other features include hardwood floors throughout, study nook, cathedral ceilings in part, plenty of under house storage and workshop, plus a newly added alfresco with merbau floors that flows straight out from the main living room, creating an easy indoor-outdoor flow over the north-west aspect of the river.
The property is zoned for Warrandyte High School. Andersons Creek Primary is within walking distance, with many private schools nearby. Good public transport to the CBD and easy access to local sporting facilities, Goldfields shopping centre and Warrandyte Village, with lots of fine dining and cafe options makes this property perfect for anyone wanting to capture a rural lifestyle so close to the city.
Alternatively, if you want to build your dream home in a perfect river fronted setting, this is perhaps one of the best blocks to do so. Rent out the home for some passive income while you design and plan your future lifestyle.
