The home’s interior is distinguished by long, 
horizontal lines and banks of curved windows which overlook expansive landscaped gardens.

Other highlights of the 1951 home include rooftop terraces with partial CBD views, an alfresco
 entertaining area, renovated kitchen, two outdoor fireplaces and a “safe and secure garden area for children to play in”.

The residence also has direct access to the private Maltravers Park reserve.

Fans of mid-century design will find a lot to love in this house.

Miles Real Estate agent Helen Witchell describes the home as a “landmark” property
 in the area. It is also close to shops, services, public transport and private and public schools (Ivanhoe Grammar – both
 the boys’ and girls’ colleges).

Ms Witchell says the owners had originally planned to extend the property but were now

“It’s a sensational block,” says the agent.

The kitchen boasts beautiful views of the spacious garden.

“And the home itself has beautiful-size rooms and a huge 
master bedroom. It’s elevated and private. It also has a renovated bathroom and large renovated kitchen. This is a blue-chip property.”

She believes the home will appeal to someone who is keen to extend.

“It is going to suit someone who wants an iconic home and has the cash to extend it,” Ms Witchell says.

“The home is still in beautiful condition, but there are extension plans and permits to go with the sale if the buyer does want to eventually extend. This is a place to grow a family. Another bonus is that is a five-minute walk to the popular East Ivanhoe Shopping Village.

“Two train stations (Ivanhoe and Eaglemont) are close by and there are nearby bus services running
 along Lower Heidelberg Road to La Trobe University and the city (Melbourne’s CBD).”
