14 Powlett Street East Melbourne


Devon House

A statement of grandeur from the city's golden age, this majestic 1888 Victorian residence is a landmark property in terms of stateliness, luxury and amenity beautifully positioned in genteel surroundings on the city's fringe.
Built at the height of the boom for James Born Esquire by noted architect of the day George Ravenscroft, the elaborate architectural treatment included an unusually wide frontage and essentially freestanding design which today is maximised through a spectacular renovation by Inarc Architects that draws stunning garden views and natural light throughout the interior.
From the immaculate Victorian facade with fully intact filigree, granite cut sills, tessellated verandah and Oregon balcony to soaring 14ft ceilings, marble fireplace mantles and stained glass detail, this distinguished residence offers rare refinement and landmark luxury.
Grand original reception rooms create an exquisite sense of occasion for entertaining; while family living and dining zones set against a dramatic backdrop of floor-to-ceiling glass provide the perfect platform for luxurious inner-city living that so cleverly opens up to the natural light and superb entertaining garden. A lush and private outdoor oasis linked by bluestone terraces and beautifully appointed with a concealed remote controlled spa and off-street parking for two cars, the entertaining areas are shaded beneath a stand of towering Pin Oaks and enlivened with the seasonal colour of vine draped walls and screens of Lilly Pillies.
An elegant kitchen forms the heart of the informal living zone centred in the space with a long calacatta marble island bench and fitted with the full complement of Gaggenau appliances including double ovens, exceptional streamlined floor-to-ceiling joinery and bar.
The flexible accommodation offers up to four bedrooms and two bathrooms with an elegant master bedroom suite with courtyard views, a double shower en suite and dressing room plus a second bedroom with private balcony, a stunning office or fourth bedroom and family bathroom.
Comprehensive appointments include hydronic heating, ducted air conditioning, rare reclaimed messmate floorboards, integrated speakers, functional fireplaces, guest powder room, external remote rotating louvre blinds for sun control, hand forged security screen and back-to-base security with perimeter control.
A rare opening in this tightly-held precinct, Devon House resides within strolling distance of beautiful Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne's world famous sporting, entertainment and theatre districts, Birrarung Marr, restaurants, trams and the CBD.
