53 Barbers Road, KALORAMA


‘Koonya’ Circa 1909

Inspection By Appointment Only

Built in 1909 by George Barber himself and set in a tranquil, highly desired location in Kalorama, is this once in a lifetime opportunity to secure this stunning piece of history.

Sitting atop over an acre of land and graced by beautiful trees such as Copper Beech, Elms, Rhododendrons, Lilli Pillis, Chinese Windmill Palms, Tree Ferns and Japanese Maples, adding splashes of color to the surrounds no matter what the season.

The character-filled weatherboard residence from the Victorian era boasts an array of original features. The formal lounge features a wood fuelled Heat Charm open fire place, polished Ironbark floors and adjoins the formal dining area.

The kitchen has been elegantly updated whilst retaining its unique turn of the century design, and features a Rayburn cooker, gas cook-top, electric stove, an abundance of bench-space and the added bonus of a light filled meals area.

Two generously sized bedrooms are serviced by an updated, pristine bathroom and a separate toilet.

A separate, versatile bungalow lies next to the main home and comprises a vast living zone, carpeted bedroom, kitchenette with Nectre wood stove, corrugated shower and a rustic outdoor toilet.

The home includes features such as, lead light windows, split system air conditioning, quality light fittings, ceiling fans and an outdoor covered decked area that overlooks the expansive backyard and provides the perfect setting to unwind in the serenity of the Dandenong Ranges!

The Dandenong’s are not known for flat land, but this secluded, peaceful property has plenty of it, providing the scope for further renovation/extension (STCA) and adding your own flare, or simply enjoying everything that this phenomenal property currently offers.

An inspection of this historic portion of Kalorama will undoubtedly impress as opportunities of this magnitude do not present themselves very often.
