11a Goldsmith Street Elwood Victoria 3184

You have found an absolute treasure in Elwood’s prized poetic precinct. Walk through the front door and be seduced by the in-vogue finishes complementing the gorgeous Art Deco heritage.

Elwood Beach Calming Tones was totally restyled in October 2019 by the famous Kate Hopwood, one of the talented people behind Kmarts transformation of their homewares range. If you’ve ever strolled through Kmart, flipped through their catalogue or found yourself wading through post after post of homewares ‘hacks’ and ‘how-to’ on Instagram — chances are Kate Hopwood and her team have been behind each design.  Kate is also the women behind the styling of this impeccable double-storey 2-BR home, sleeping up to 5. The brief was to create a home away from home and this has been delivered via tonal textures giving the effect of warmth and relaxation, combined with woven textures taking you back to nature- in tune with the gorgeous suburb of Elwood and its beach location.

The Apartment is alive with character and filled with light, the home opens to a welcoming entrance off which two distinct living areas provide the ideal setting for relaxation. With soaring panelled ceiling, the generous lounge with the warmth of a Heat and Glo Fireplace, 40 inch TV with Apple TV and Netflix flows through to the charming dining room with Bose Sound system and split system heating and cooling. Both rooms are highlighted by original criss-cross leadlight in the pretty windows. The adjacent contemporary kitchen showcases luxe marble benchtops and quality stainless steel appliances including a 600mm gourmet oven. A true bonus for this neighbourhood, the manicured and unusually generous garden is a peaceful escape and perfect for alfresco get-togethers. Plus perfect for your furry friends as we are pet-friendly. 

There is also an under-stair laundry and small powder room.

Both of the home’s sunlit bedrooms are located upstairs, including the oversized master with king Bed which not only boasts a broad balcony, but also a walk-in robe and room and a study or sitting area and reverse cycle Air Con.  The second light-filled bedroom has a queen bed and built-in robes. A stylish central bathroom with cool hex tiled floor completes the upstairs.

With transport, shops, cafes & the beach just footsteps away, this is quintessential Elwood living. There is on-street parking available. 

Turn right for St Kildas Acland street, turn left for Ormond Road and Elwood Village shopping and go straight ahead to dip your toes in Port Phillip Bay!
