31 Acacia Road, Hurstbridge, 3099

25 Years ago Hurstbridge looks much like it does today. The perfect blend of city and country, the village has a unique style dominated by small craft shops and cafes, many featuring pitched corrugated iron roofs. This home was created then, and perfectly captures the same style, with pitched roofline and colourbond steel roof. Situated in arguably one of the best streets in Hurstbridge, just a 1.1km walk into the main street, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home embodies the essence of Hurstbridge living.

Lovingly updated by the current owner over the past 12 years, it is a light filled home with character and charm. Entering the sealed driveway reveals a double garage (complete with workshop and storeroom) that sits below the main home. 

A deck wraps itself around 2 sides of the home, and takes in the manicured front garden and paved courtyard area, a perfect place to sit and enjoy the King Parrots while enjoying a cheeky glass or two of wine. As you enter the home, you will be struck by the vaulted ceilings and timber beams, a stunning feature that gives the home a feeling of space.

Pass by timber stairs to enter the sun-soaked family/dining room with modern kitchen and all new stainless steel appliances and plush dishwasher. Off this space is a relaxing lounge area which takes in the front yard views from its elevated position. 

To the left, as you enter the home, are two generous bedrooms, both carpeted and with ample cupboard storage. A euro laundry and stunningly renovated bathroom complete the downstairs area.

Winding your way up the stairs reveals the adult domain (unless the kids get there first). A large master bedroom with large glass feature windows, a welcome parent’s retreat (or kids rumpus) plus another stunning bathroom completes the upstairs oasis.

At the rear of the home is a private courtyard area with timber deck and stone paving, another private space to sit and enjoy the native flora and fauna.

Hurstbridge is 28km from Melbourne CBD, and is serviced by a train line with regular services. The town itself is home to a diverse mix of families, artists, musicians and people looking for a balance between city and country, and nearby are farmers markets, wineries and walking tracks.

The kids can walk to the local primary school, and Fergussons Paddock is a nearby green space that hosts the farmers market but also a skatepark, dog park and tennis club.
