An extraordinary Albert Park conversion covered in ivy at 119 Ashworth St is offering buyers a rare opportunity in the popular city suburb.
A barn and stables that belonged to a former abbey have been transformed into a dream home with botanic sanctuary surrounds.
It’s for private sale for the first time since its renovation by the vendor, renowned interior designer Jane Charlwood, and has a $7-$7.7 million price guide.
Marshall White Port Phillip agent Oliver Bruce said original features including exposed brick walls, rafters and vaulted ceilings added “wow factor” to the home.
“The second wow factor is that it’s a 700sq m block of land, which is exceptionally large and rare in an area which is mostly filled with Victorian and Edwardian terraces,” Mr Bruce said.
“I understand the well established gardens have been there for some time.”
Warm timber floorboards, huge windows and French doors in the relaxed living room are some of the stylish interiors.
The incredible gardens and a pool are great for entertaining, connected to the modern kitchen via a servery window.
The two-storey property has two bedrooms on the first floor and a retreat area that could be converted into a third.
A sale within the price guide would make it the most expensive residential transaction in the suburb this year, according to CoreLogic.
