Airedale - Lisson Grove Hawthorn

Airedale is a stately late-Victorian house originally built by Frederick Green who was known for his use of brickwork, turned wood, terracotta ridging and under-eave flowers. The romanticism of the Victorian era embraces you as you walk between the lavender guards of the pathway. Cream roses straddle the verandah posts enclosing the hidden return verandah. The floral leadlight of the entrance doors entices you into the double arched hallway.

Each room in this house is majestic in size, which, is emphasized by the crisp antique white finish of the walls, and the charcoal carpeting that creates an inviting flow through.

Elegant period character displayed in the large Victorian windows, ornate ceiling roses, marble fireplaces, and decorative cornices, has been blended with 21st century comfort to make this family home an enviable Hawthorn gem.

The formal dining room, which would easily seat 20, overlooks a grand backyard which is home to a magnificent oak tree and lemon scented ghost gum. The airy and light family room, floored in oversize speckled white tiles, also affords an enticing view to this extended playground for any child.

The upstairs houses a parents retreat with an impressive glass wall separating bathroom amenities from the spacious sleeping area. This room also has a view over the park- like backyard through shuttered windows.
