Carlton North’s Bridgeton House goes from drab to fab
A Victorian terrace has been transformed from drab to fab, with a striking blend of old world charm and contemporary style.
Unliveable about five years ago, Bridgeton House at 24 Lee St, Carlton North is now a stunning three-level family home with price hopes of $2.2-$2.3 million.

Nelson Alexander Carlton North agent Peter Varellas said it was “cleverly designed and utilised space really well”.
“It has a really nice warm feel to it and there is great space to entertain in the backyard and on the rooftop terrace,” Mr Varellas said.
The home’s heritage is retained in its black and white facade, while an added third level is concealed from street view.
Inside, a side hallway leads past a bedroom or study with original fireplace to the open-plan living zone.
Here an exposed brick wall and gas fireplace add character to the lounge area, while the dining space and kitchen flow outside through sliding glass doors to a north-facing courtyard that provides off-street parking.
The sleek white kitchen has Miele appliances, including a gas cooktop with two wok burners, two ovens and a Liebherr integrated fridge.
Two more bedrooms, including the main with gas fireplace and double door access to a balcony, are on the first floor along with the family bathroom and laundry.
