Sweeping Dandenong Ranges views from Kalorama charmer ‘a bit spesh’
Enjoy picturesque views of the Dandenong Ranges after a day well spent in your glamorous garden at this delightful Kalorama property.
Originally built in the roaring 20s out of local mountain ash, 55 Falls Rd is on the market for $1.48-$1.62 million and still retains all its original cottage charm as well as some modern creature comforts.
A sale in that range would set the suburb’s residential price record, overtaking the $1.32 million paid for 41-43 Falls Rd in June 2017.
Kalorama’s median house price is $650,000, having increased by 27 per cent over the past three years, according to CoreLogic data.

“It’s absolutely gorgeous and it’s been loved, with a lot of money spent on it to get it into the 21st century,” Bell Real Estate Olinda agent Corinne Sukroo said of the four-bedroom house.
“It’s a bit spesh.”
Arbours draped in vines act as focal points in abundant gardens of hedges, flowers and meandering stone footpaths at the property, dubbed ‘Wycefn’ by its owners.
“The setting is divine,” Ms Sukroo said.
“The gardens, the views — it’s one of the best locations in Mt Dandenong.”
After buying it five years ago, the vendors “added their signatures” to the property, Ms Sukroo said.
But now with grandkids growing up fast, the couple made the decision to downsize closer to family.
“They’ve really enjoyed the location, the peaceful aspects of the property and they’ve actually stayed in this place a lot longer than they have in others,” Ms Sukroo said.
The property last sold for $950,000 in June 2014, according to CoreLogic data.
