Comments on 57 Alexandra Avenue CANTERBURY

Price: vicinity $3.3m

Position: Golden mile of Canterbury. One of the very good north/south running streets. Canterbury station, Grammar schools, shops of Whitehorse, Deepdene and Maling Road all in the precinct.


Last rated in 2012 and the score remains strong

Renovated and extended in 2003 and holding up well

Terrific front to back flow

Good extension at rear by Canny opened home up

Internal access garage and from rear and one behind for visitors

Good light in study for work at home adult and North light into living dining

Roomy kitchen - Timber cabinetry as in master the only element for mine that some may refresh, no drama

Bedroom sizes good

Essentially still a new home throughout and feels fresh, sign of good reno

Has done well what many period buyers continue to hope for today - period grace merged with modern living


Mal James's Comments on 57 Alexandra Avenue CANTERBURY

Our Rating from 2012:

57 Alexandra is a very good house which has been well renovated and extended by a renowned local builder. The detailing is thoughtful, the floorplan flows well and spaces are a good size. The fact that this renovation is around 10 years old makes it even more special. Key pluses for me were the rear open-plan living area, the width of the hallway and the connection from the house to the garage via the laundry (again good width). The rear orientation to north west is near-perfect, with the house getting good access to midday and afternoon sun. Question marks for some could be the faade - as pretty as it is, the house is modest from the street and is timber-clad, which in this area could be an important consideration. Comparisons will be made here to a recent sale at No.24 by the same agency for around the $2.5m mark. Of similar vintage and in similar condition, that was brick yet had less land, a different floor plan and no car garage.
