Grand family home in exclusive Toorak locale

Exclusively located in this prized Toorak pocket, this executive home delivers a lavish family lifestyle complete with swimming pool and flood-lit tennis court, glorious gardens and commanding views just moments to Kooyong Village, station, and trams providing access to a multitude of schools.

Built in 1935 and called Selsdon – most likely after the British country estate of the same name – and owned by the same family for the past 45 years, it epitomizes the luxury and sophistication associated with Melbourne's premier suburb. The meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail is obvious from the moment you step inside, starting with the timber-panelled reception hall to the collection of stately formal rooms with high ceilings, leadlight windows, open fireplaces and timber mantels, including the sun-filled lounge, dining room and a den or study.

The updated kitchen includes granite benchtops, Gaggenau and Miele appliances, an island bench and walk-in pantry. Overlooking the meals area, it opens to the back garden and north-south floodlit tennis court.

The craftsman-built staircase leads to the expansive first floor with a fitted home office and extremely spacious and comfortable accommodation. Four bedrooms include the main bedroom suite with garden views, fitted dressing room and palatial Hollywood- style marble spa en-suite. Three additional bedrooms and two central bathrooms.

A second level is devoted to a huge games or billiards room with bar and kitchenette and panoramic views to the north. The heated swimming pool is set in a north-facing landscaped outdoor entertainment area and garden.

Set in this serene street, surrounded by other prestigious homes, this magnificent residence has ducted heating and cooling, butler's pantry, tennis court, gazebo, alarm, double garage and off-street parking.
