Timeless English Elegance, Prestigious Toorak SettingA landmark Toorak property, this imposing double-storey Old English style residence constructed in 1934 to designs by Cedric Ballantyne luxuriates on 1,655m2 (approx.) with a north-facing rear garden with swimming pool.
Built on land subdivided from the grounds of the Victorian era mansion “Rostrevor”, the tightly held residence stands proudly in its privileged streetscape and comes to market for the first time in 46 years. The preservation of the home’s superb craftsmanship and unusually beautiful detail creates a backdrop of warmth and richness to the substantial interiors; while offering excellent scope for further sympathetic renovation (STCA).
With the living spaces orientated to the north and west, the sun and garden greenery flood the interior while offering elegant and intimate areas for both entertaining and daily living. Richly detailed formal reception rooms complement a lovely north-west sunroom and adjoining TV room with balcony and access to the garden; while the efficient kitchen with butler’s pantry accompanies a study on each level.
Upstairs, four bedrooms, all with built-in robes, feature elevated views and include the main bedroom with ensuite bathroom access and north-facing retreat with balcony overlooking the grounds, alongside a family bathroom.
Character rich and linked via front and rear staircases, the home also provides the modern conveniences of central heating, alarm system, watering system, rear studio, workshop, powder room, garaging for two cars and additional off-street parking.
Exclusively located, prestigious Hopetoun Road hosts some of Melbourne’s finest real estate which is a fitting address for this refined family home positioned close to private schools, Hawksburn, Kooyong and Toorak Villages, High Street’s galleries and specialty shops, trams, buses and freeway arterial links.
