“Calliope” - Landmark Luxury In Botanic GardensInspect Strictly by Appointment
Thursday 22nd November 12 – 12.30pm & 5 – 5.30pm
Occupying a prominent 1070 sqm (approx.) corner in Kooyong’s most prestigious tree lined avenue, enchanting “Calliope” is a magnificent five-bedroom four-bathroom period home, meticulously restored and beautifully renovated to provide luxurious family accommodation in exquisite landscaped gardens with conservatory pool and oversized double garage. Offered for only the second time in its remarkable 100+ year history, its privileged proportions convey the utmost family refinement with premium modern finishes and timeless designer style just moments from Kooyong Village and Station, elite schools including Scotch and St Kevin’s Colleges, Glenferrie Road trams, Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club and the Monash Freeway.
Kept private by its boundary of tall encircling trees, a secure gated entry is all that hints at the glorious garden beauty that surrounds Calliope’s gracious proportions. Built by its original owner in the Edwardian style, later remodeled to reflect fashionable 1930’s architecture, its uncompromising current day accommodation is the result of painstaking restoration, carefully considered renovation/extension and a flair for elegant contemporary style. Soaring ceilings, handsome open fireplaces, early beveled glass doors and banks of broad north facing windows add proud individual character as well as brilliant natural light and idyllic garden views to every inch of this substantial family home where a no expense spared approach has created the ultimate in modern family comfort.
A distinguished portico entry and wide central hall precede a series of expansive formal and informal living areas with open fireplaces, a spectacular showpiece kitchen and heated conservatory pool, all designed to open onto multiple alfresco terraces for unforgettable indoor/outdoor entertaining surrounded by the picturesque botanic gardens. Above the original Otway Blackwood staircase, another wide central hall links a superb reading/sunroom, lavish family bathroom and study/fifth bedroom to four larger bedrooms, each a tranquil retreat with extensive robes, one with ensuite, the main featuring its own private terrace with valley views, marble ensuite and fully fitted custom WIR.
As expected from a home of this caliber, a long list of inclusions features a basement storage/wine room, Queensland Turpentine floors, ducted heating and cooling, ducted vacuum, auto garden irrigation, intercom and alarmed security plus oversized remote double garage with internal access via Mernda Road.
