Brunswick West Spanish Mission-style pad ‘a restored diamond’
A striking Spanish Mission-style mansion with a fully renovated interior is on the market in Brunswick West.
The heritage overlay property at 491 Brunswick Rd retains period details including ornate ceilings, a bluestone tiled porch and arched columns with city views.
It was sold as an allotment of about 802sq m in 2016 before being subdivided and having a townhouse developed at the back.
The property now has a $1.385-$1.485 million price tag.

Watermark Real Estate Malvern East agent Zuzka Marsilli said it was a unique property with modern appliances and period charm.
“When you look at photos of what it was like, it’s now a restored diamond,” Ms Marsilli said.
“There’s a mix of modern and original features but it fits together really well.
“The Mission-style details are still there which is beautiful.”
Inside the single-level layout are two large bedrooms, plus a study or third bedroom, an open-plan living and dining room, and a kitchen with a Calacatta waterfall stone bench, butler’s pantry and Smeg appliances.
Ms Marsilli said the vendor was a passionate renovator and developer.
“He has always wanted to sell it,” Ms Marsilli said.
“I think the ideal buyer would be a young professional couple working in the CBD that has to fly interstate regularly, as there is easy access to the airport.
“And it is on the high side of Brunswick so there’s not much noise.
“I really think it has so much to offer.”
Expressions of interest for the property — which last sold for $1.2 million according to CoreLogic data — will close on April 11.
