Victorian house of consulate proportions, situated in East Melbourne, Australia, is famous for its beauty, scale and size, unmatched in the whole city. A Magnolia grandiflora creates a wonderful entrance to a residence of majestic proportions.
Doubtless this is one of Melbourne’s most illustrious family properties. A majestic marble hall sets the tone for the classical proportions of bright reception rooms and a separate sitting room, each with marble open fire places, all appreciating outlooks over landscaped outdoor entertaining areas. Extensive marble flooring, mahogany and native timber panelling, superb period doors and decorative corbels ensure the elegance of the era is retained while a kitchen appointed with Miele cook-tops and Westinghouse double wall ovens also includes ample storage. A fitted bar accompanies inviting family living and dining areas overlooking the pool and charming stables featuring its own bar. The residence is endowed with a reverse cycle heating/cooling system, automatic gates, and security system.
The spacious, north facing reception rooms and a drawing room are equalled in dimensions and style by a great central dining/ living room, a study and library. The informal family areas and a well equipped kitchen stand in line with the others in point of elegance. The swimming pool beyond them is surrounded by a private lawn and evocative stables that offer pavilion entertaining. Accommodation is provided by five upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms accompanied by a central retreat and a versatile additional apartment. There is also a ground floor bathroom.
