17 Dalny Road, Murrumbeena

Surrounded by high-calibre period homes within a protected tree-lined streetscape, this divine double brick, three-bedroom, two-bathroom home comes with a family-wise tri-zone design, rich architectural detail and a revered position close to parks, schools and landmark shopping precincts. Expertly appointed with stone benchtops, soft closing cabinetry and a big butler’s pantry in a state-of-the-art Siemen’s kitchen (induction cooktop), timber vanity bathrooms (including a jet-spa ensuite) and robes in every bedroom, this centrally heated, air-conditioned and alarmed home retains superb period character, from high ornate ceilings, square set cornices and polished original floors to lovely timber architraves and open fire-warmed areas.

But it’s not all about the luxury finish here, this sensational home starts with fine design. Featuring formal lounge and dining rooms at the front, open plan living and dining at the rear (gas log fireplace), a master-suite zoned privately away from secondary bedrooms and all weather al fresco entertaining in north facing, low maintenance gardens, there’s even superior car accommodation – with an oversized single garage and a multitude of off street parking. Best of all, this time-honoured home on 578sqm approx. has a family-wise location close to Packer Park’s wide open spaces, St Patrick Primary School and playgrounds, Murrumbeena Road’s restaurants rail & retail and Chadstone’s easy commute!
