A rare offering in the Sunnyside Estate precinct, 'Barrabool' is a stately 1920's family residence on a massive corner allotment of some 1,672 square meters. Much-loved by its long-term owners, this attic-style residence has a rich history as a doctor's residence on two previous occasions. Awe-inspiring in terms of space, brimful of original character and enhanced over time to offer a remarkable nine bedroom/five bathroom (plus large study) floorplan, there's endless potential to enjoy graceful interiors, modernize and renovate over time or apply your own concepts of family luxury, reinstating the grand circular driveway, adding a resort-style swimming pool and...enjoying life in prime Camberwell with trams, trains, boutique shopping and outstanding schools all close by. An expansive layout spanning two character-filled levels is instantly ideal for a large or growing family, intergenerational living or the opportunity to run a home-based business from a prime location. Alternatively, the spectacular scale of this corner landholding and its main road exposure is a truly tempting scenario for potential redevelopment on a site measuring 45.72 m x 36.58 m (STCA) with street frontages to both Burke Road and Currajong Avenue. Eloquently expressing the grace and grandeur of its era, beautiful wood paneling frames the grand foyer entrance and heralds superbly proportioned rooms designed for grand-scale living and entertaining. All the rooms throughout this unique home are king-sized including a lovely lounge with Bay-style window and a ballroom sized rumpus area upstairs. It's easy to see yourself enjoying large-scale entertaining throughout the huge well-fitted timber kitchen and adjoining family living areas where parquetry timber floors and custom-designed cabinetry reflect a keen eye for quality. Outside, lush gardens create an inviting backdrop for al fresco enjoyment. It's clear this home has been the scene of many happy family festivities and elegant social occasions over the decades, now it's time to make your own mark.
