An historic family home with an ultra-modern extension is on offer in a thriving pocket of Alphington in Melbourne’s northeast.
The sprawling property at 12 Hanslope Avenue comprises a five-bedroom main residence and a two-bedroom studio, all set on a mammoth 1773sqm block in a leafy and quiet cul-de-sac.

The original residence was built in 1883 and has since stood as a prized landmark in the area, famed for its ornate grandeur and historical significance.
It has more recently been impressively renovated throughout, with a jaw-dropping rear expansion, although the almost 140-year-old heritage and character have been thoughtfully maintained.

It boasts soaring 4m ceilings, oversized living rooms, generously proportioned bedrooms, and quaint Victorian-design period features.
Selling agent Luke Sacco from Nelson Alexander in Northcote said the vendors had decided to downsize, offering the opportunity for a new family to call the stunning property home.
“It’s an exciting opportunity to own a special piece of history – ready and waiting for the next residents to create fresh stories and memories,” Mr Sacco said.
