The Opportunity To Adopt An Icon
A landmark residence since it was built for Albert Christopher Forge, founder of the department store that bore the family name, this unforgettable Edwardian marries rich c1918 originality to light-filled modern spaces. The four-five bedroom flexibility of the accommodation complements classical period rooms including a spectacular dining room beneath a pressed metal ceiling of irreplaceable beauty. Additional pressed metal ceilings, open fire-places and lead-light windows reflect the authenticity of this unique property while substantial modern proportions for living and dining are complemented by hardwood floorboards, a cathedral ceiling featuring automatic blinds and a bright, well maintained kitchen. Ducted heating, air-conditioning, French doors to rear decking and off street parking accessed from second frontage to The Crescent further enhance an address that surrounds itself with tram routes, schools, Victoria University and Footscray's comprehensive shopping.
