Property Of The Week: 21 Shakespeare Grove, Hawthorn, Melbourne, VIC
Inspired family living in a coveted Melbourne location.
Located in the blue-ribbon St James estate on one of Hawthorn’s most desirable streets, this stylish residence is an exercise in refined, modern family living.
Less than 15 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD and nearby to the Yarra River, leading schools and local dining precincts, the three-storey home is set on approx. 886sqm, offering 5-bedrooms, 5-bathrooms and space for seven cars.
Designed by Charles Salter, of Salter Architects, with interiors by Jessie Cook of Cook Gordon Architects, the home finds Harper & Sandilands oak flooring underfoot while bespoke panelling and brickwork arches come to define the home’s aesthetic.
The kitchen boasts Miele appliances and a Liebherr built-in double door fridge, marble benchtops, and a butler’s pantry while the connected living, meals and alfresco dining area is elevated with the aforementioned timber panelling and a fireplace.
A formal dining, study, laundry and powder room are also found here.
Also on the ground level is the master suite, which sees private access to the verandah, another fireplace, large walk-in-robe and ensuite decorated in marble with twin vanities, dark timber cabinetry and a standalone bath.
The combination of marble and dark timber cabinetry extends to the powder room, while marble is replaced with a granite vanity in the upstairs, pool house and lower ground family bathrooms.
Upstairs sees the other four bedrooms, one of which is privy to an ensuite, private balcony and walk-in-robe.
On the lower ground floor arrives an expansive family room which houses a cellar servicing 144 bottles. Elsewhere, the showroom style garage houses five vehicles and boasts its own rear-lane access. A further two car spots are also available on the property
The outdoor area truly impresses with an incredible in-ground heated pool alongside a pool house which acts as a covered resort-style pavilion complete with its own bathroom.
