Evoking Japanese Serenity

Description

Serenely situated in a small cul-de-sac moments from Rathdowne Village, this tranquil two bedroom home is a zen-like haven evoking the abodes of Japan. An unexpected find, offering little hint to the street of what awaits inside, the home opens into a spacious entrance area and benefits from thoughtful design that sees each bedroom and living space lead directly outdoors, where there is both a courtyard for alfresco dining and a picturesque Japanese garden. Complementing a spacious living room is a kitchen and dining domain, with a wide gas stove and modern Bosch dishwasher, and the dining zone flows to the paved courtyard. Two double bedrooms offer built-in robes and have beautifully framed views of the garden, with sliding glass doors to step through at any time to enjoy the fresh air. The bathroom/laundry, hosting a recessed bath, shower and double vanity, leads outside to a second courtyard. The rich use of timber adds character throughout, a powder room ensures convenience, peace of mind is enhanced by a security system and there is both heating and cooling. To the front of the home is an off-street parking space, with laneways running behind and to the side of the residence. Curtain Square, trams, schools, Melbourne University, Lygon Street, shops and cafes are all nearby, making it easy to enjoy a vibrant lifestyle from this most peaceful base.
