A Wayne Gillespie Classic In The Domain Precinct

Exclusively positioned in The Domain Precinct just a short stroll from the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Yarra River, this tightly-held residence is a striking early example of architect Wayne Gillespie's timeless and sophisticated design.

Crafted around three courtyards drawing natural light from the north, east and west, this two-storey residence combines exceptional privacy with substantial accommodation in sun-drenched and peaceful surroundings.

A luxuriously large ground-floor main bedroom suite with a retreat opens either side to the gardens and features a stone trimmed en suite. Additional accommodation is privately zoned upstairs including two bedrooms with double robes, a large study with integrated desk or fourth bedroom and sky-lit main bathroom.

Appointments include a double remote garage opening into the house and rear courtyard and with excellent rear laneway access, central heating and air conditioning, powder room and alarm system.

The original interiors provide scope for customisation within the low-maintenance floorplan that offers garden views from all the principal rooms. A spacious living room with a wood burning fireplace frames picture window vistas to the west across the front courtyard and clerestory windows overlooking the central northern courtyard.

A wall of gallery inspired northern glass frames the formal dining room and separate kitchen with a meals area and a breakfast bar where you can sit with the sun on your back. A series of sliding doors brings entertaining seamlessly out into the completely private central courtyard.

Built on the site where three times Prime Minister of Australia Alfred Deakin resided between 1887 and 1919, this exceptional residence is exclusively positioned on the fringe of the CBD within walking distance of Melbourne's sporting precinct, Domain Village, the iconic Tan running track, Fawkner park, fine dining, trams and close to private schools including Melbourne Girls Grammar.

This is a rare opportunity to secure a solid and brilliantly designed home in a tightly held precinct that lays claim to some of the finest real estate in Melbourne.
