Period home lovers swoon over handsome Edwardian in Yarraville

Popular inner-west suburb once named one of the world’s coolest places

A stylish period home has just hit the market in the heart of Yarraville, once recognised as the fifth coolest suburb in the world.

The four-bedroom 1920s Edwardian stunner at 28 Stephen Street, is one of the most impressive homes for sale in the small inner-west suburb, located 8km from the CBD.

It is winning the hearts of period home lovers and families looking for their forever home, according to Buxton Inner West managing director, Tristan Tomasino.

The owners of more than 23 years successfully renovated and extended the house, while cleverly retaining the original details of the Edwardian era, he said.

“It now offers a stunning blend of contemporary living and classic period charm,” he added.

Set behind a picket fence on a sprawling 816sq m corner block, the house catches the eye with its decorative brickwork, ornate veranda and tall chimneys.

Exquisite stained glass panels adorn sash windows and the front door, which opens to a traditional hallway with timber flooring  and towering ceilings.

Original fireplaces bring character and warmth to rooms, boasting stylish plantation shutters and delightful garden views.

Perfect for a growing family, the flexible floorplan has three bedrooms with built-in robes at the front, and a fourth bedroom at the rear, which could be used as a home office or second living space.

The heart of the home includes a sun-drenched living and dining area that seamlessly flows to a well-appointed kitchen and pantry with sleek stone benchtops and plenty of storage space.

Mr Tomasino has a personal affinity with the property having leased it from the owners in the past.

“I loved living there because the house is filled with natural light and has a spacious, well designed floorplan,” he said.

“Also the block size is larger than average for the suburb, and the local shops are just a five to 10-minute walk away.”

Mr Tomasino said the property was ideal for hosting family gatherings and entertaining, either inside the house or out in the big backyard that offered endless possibilities.

“It’s rare to find a corner block of this size so close to the city,” he said.

“There’s room for a pool in the backyard, with plenty of space left over for barbecues and kids to play.”

With ample heating and cooling, plus a laundry with an extra toilet, shower and storage space, the property has dual side access, two car off-street parking and an extra single carport.

The location will suit those who relish the Yarraville lifestyle, with the iconic art-deco Sun Theatre, parks, vibrant restaurants, trendy cafes and train stations nearby.

As a result of a global survey by Time Out in 2020, Yarraville gained international recognition as the fifth coolest suburb in the world and the top-ranking neighbourhood in Australia. 

Time Out praised the suburb for its perfect balance of residential and recreational offerings, sense of community, multicultural food options, arts, culture and liveability.

The elegant Edwardian has been attracting strong interest from local families and Bayside buyers, according to Mr Tomasino.

“Fully renovated period homes are in hot demand in Yarraville, and they are selling exceptionally well,” he said.

“People are deciding against building and renovating, and opting instead for move-in ready, turnkey properties.”

The property is priced at $3.45m-$3.55m, with expressions of interest closing Thursday, November 30 at 1pm. For further details, contact Tristan Tomasino from Buxton Inner West on 0417 315 740.
