Substantial Sackville Family Entertainer

Kew's esteemed Sackville Ward commands one of Melbourne's finest reputations as a family lifestyle and private schools' precinct where this illustrious 7 bedroom residence c1912 is magnificently set amidst leafy botanical garden and an alfresco entertainment sanctuary. Tightly-held by only three families, this expansive luxury home on a huge 1,200 sqm allotment (approx.) presents a remarkably rare opportunity.

Fully secure with CCTV, alarm, video intercom and rear remote-control double garage (via sealed side cul-de-sac), extra-wide frontage to a highly coveted street reveals a glorious garden and stately façade before an extensive, two-level layout. Merging ornate original detail and luxurious modern features, the beautifully presented interior is zoned to accommodate a large family and guests while superbly designed to entertain.

A grand games room (with full-size billiard table that hosted The Rolling Stones!), graceful music room, gym, climate-controlled connoisseur's wine cellar plus a sumptuous formal dining room are matched by a sun-soaked and secluded outdoor oasis featuring alfresco kitchen pavilion (teppanyaki grill, BBQ, commercial rangehood, fridge, dishwasher) and self-cleaning heated pool with a Remco safety/solar cover.

Overlooking this north-facing haven is a central family zone with living, dining and sitting areas all served by an impressive kitchen boasting an AGA stove, Gaggenau cooktop and Miele dishwasher. Further at ground-level is a laundry, mudroom, two bathrooms, splendid executive office/library and an exquisite main bedroom including a custom-fitted dressing room and marble-lined ensuite with a double-shower.

Separate upstairs wings provide exceptional flexibility with the guests' area including a lounge, kitchenette and laundry areas, dining area, two bedrooms (WIRs) and a bathroom. The children's domain incorporates a study/retreat, powder room, bathroom and four robed bedrooms. Additionally there is hydronic heating, ducted cooling/heating, speaker system, vacuum, gas FPs, parquetry floors, high ceilings and keyless entry.

This elite Sackville Ward property offered for the first time in around 30 years offers an unparalleled family lifestyle experience surrounded by blue-ribbon amenities including the cream of Kew and Hawthorn's prestige private schools, Cotham and Burke Roads' trams, parkland just around the corner and nearby boutique Balwyn, Camberwell and Hawthorn shopping precincts.
