Prahran house bears French stamp beneath Boston ivy after turning over a new leaf

Get an ‘Eiffel’ of this ivy-covered Victorian-era house which has been fabulously renovated with nods to France – ooh la la.

Say “bonjour” to this phenomenal pad which brings a touch of Paris to Prahran.

The Victorian-era house’s owners have installed shelves made of reclaimed oak from a French post office along the living room’s back wall.

Antique French doors, original floorboards and open fireplaces also feature in the renovated home at 43 Aberdeen Rd, that goes to auction Saturday May 21 with $3.2m-$3.5m prices hopes.

Hocking Stuart Belle Property Armadale principal Andrew James described the house as “fantastic for entertaining” thanks to the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors which open to a landscaped garden, deck and mulberry tree believed to be about a century old.

“It’s a house for all seasons with the large living area and lounge room at the back being the perfect light, bright multipurpose space all year long,” Mr James said.

He said the property had attracted interest from Stonnington locals and Australian expats returning after living overseas for a number of years.

“I especially love two features, the first being the beautiful Boston ivy going around and wrapping the house, it’s so magnificent and so different to anything else offered in the area,” Mr James said.

“I also love the flexibility of having two living areas, that’s very important as it caters well to families.”

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom property set on 347sq m has two off-street carparks and a kitchen with Corian benchtops and timber breakfast bar.
