South Melbourne

Having recently renovated this generous 1850s family home, the owners sought to create the perfect space for a busy family with young children. Broad entertaining terrace with open fireplace and BBQ, a large swathe of lawn for ball play, spacious raised vegetable beds with espaliered fruit trees, a pool, in-ground trampoline and ball play area, adaptable for carparking. Within all of this activity the garden still has areas for quiet retreat, seasonal change, shade and sunshine, flowers to pick and corners to hide in for active young children.
