Yes! We used to wonder about this one too!
Have you ever driven passed number 80 Hill Street, noticing the bikes attached to the trees? Peering down the drive and wondering just what's behind the stone fence with mosaic artwork? Thinking to yourself what is tucked away amongst the mature trees? We have wondered this ourselves for years and what a hidden treasure we uncovered! Strategically spread out over a 5208m2 site our owners have created a true haven for themselves in the heart of Richmond. They built their family home filled with character and heart, planned the gardens to not only look and smell wonderful but to also feed their family with the orchard, raised vegetable beds and large chook run providing year round sustenance. Privacy, views and sun were also important considerations. As was providing separate areas for enjoyment whether it be playing a game of lawn tennis, having a private spa or an outdoor bath staring up at the stars, family gatherings around the BBQ, children's parties in the Summerhouse, pottering in the workshop, or creating in the separate studio, the options are simply endless. The parking and access flexibility is another huge bonus with legal access off both Hill Street and Balou Place. There's also garaging to house a large campervan. The land size suggests there is room for futher development or perhaps the ability to build again to accommodate multi-generational situations. This property is most definitely one of a kind, located so conveniently that you could walk or bike anywhere in Richmond in minutes but with so much privacy, character and opportunities. It's only had one owner, the next one may well hold onto it for another 30 years so don't miss this chance of a lifetime. Take the virtual walk through the house to appreciate how special it is. Viewings are strictly by appointment only.
