Bella – A Classic RedefinedOne of Lilydale’s original properties, this magnificent brick worker’s cottage circa 1889 has been painstakingly renovated and extended to offer a premium finish on a character home. Once part of a large estate owned and built by David Mitchell - a reputable builder, contractor and businessman – it now stands to serve more modern lifestyles whether you’re a family, downsizer or professional couple.
Aptly named ‘Bella’, the recently completed transformation sees high-end fittings merged with upcycled materials. The front of the home is heritage and where you’ll discover many of the original features including 12ft ceilings, Victorian cornices, ceiling roses and architraves as well as Tasmanian Oak hardwood floors.
Well-proportioned, the layout sees two bedrooms (equipped with their own BIRs and gas fireplaces) and a sleek main bathroom occupy the ground floor while a luxurious master is privately zoned upstairs alongside an ensuite and WIR. Living and entertaining is effortless with an open-plan configuration combining the lounge and dining areas with a Caesarstone kitchen and alfresco.
Situated on an elongated allotment, the home further boasts two street frontages with the remote garage accessible from Black Street. Additional features include: double glazed windows, new electricals and plumbing, GDH, refrigerated cooling and a beautifully landscaped garden with hints of Bluestone.
A remarkable find, this stunning home is enhanced by its central location walking distance from Lilydale Station, shops, eateries and schools. Premier Yarra Valley wineries are also within enviable proximity.
