Edwardian reno ‘one of the best’ in Surrey Hills set to be suburb’s biggest sale for the year
Edwardian style has been reinvented with total commitment to quality and modern living at this Surrey Hills showstopper.
The 1908-built home on a spacious 1241sq m block at 12 The Avenue was renovated six years ago by the vendors, who are reluctantly selling as they move interstate.
The property has a price range of $4.5-$4.95 million, after last selling for $2 million in 2011.

A sale in that bracket would be the suburb’s highest residential exchange for the year, beating the $3.72 million paid for 51 Kennealy St in March.
Surrey Hills’ biggest recorded sale was set in September 2017 by 29 Guildford Rd for $5.99 million.
Jellis Craig Boroondara director Alastair Craig said 12 The Avenue was “probably one of the best renovated Edwardian homes I’ve seen”.
“I can’t remember seeing as a good a period home in Surrey Hills,” he said.
Mr Craig said the vendors had put their “heart and soul” into renovating their dream home, but circumstances required them to return to Sydney.
The lower level contains a brilliant open lounge, dining and kitchen space that adjoins a living space with a limestone feature wall and a covered alfresco area looking out at the garden and pool that lights up at night.
Also downstairs is a main bedroom with dual walk-in wardrobes and ensuite bathroom with double vanities, plus two more living rooms.
Upstairs are four robed bedrooms, a family bathroom and a study.
Premium fixtures and fittings at the five-bedroom house include French Oak flooring, Italian marble, built-in cabinetry and a climate controlled wine cellar.
Also included at the property are a double garage, sheds and a vegie patch.
