266 Domain Road South Yarra


Landmark Period Luxury

Nestled between the Yarra River and The Royal Botanic Gardens precinct, this magnificent 1928 stucco and tapestry brick residence built by architect Roy Stevenson in the style of the Arts and Crafts Movement stands proudly in its privileged streetscape revered for its gentility and offers exceptional five bedroom, four bathroom family accommodation on 1,100sqm (Approx); made even more memorable by its private northern garden backdrop.

Painstakingly renovated by architect David Wilkinson, the voluminous northern interiors are wed together by an elegant entrance hall and magnificent curving iron staircase merging upstairs with a colonnade and geometric patterned ceiling that paints an irreplaceable picture of old Hollywood glamour.

The preservation of superb craftsmanship and unusually beautiful detail creates a backdrop of warmth and richness from the original Jarrah flooring to elegant double hung Georgian windows with bronze fly wires to open fireplaces, beautiful panelled doors, wall sconce lights and decorative ceilings.

Defined by grand dimensions, traditional reception rooms complement intimate retreats from a library to a northern sun room, study nook and top-floor children's retreat; while the marble kitchen nods elegantly to the home's English country influences with a Paul Bocuse stove, casual meals area and classic Butler's pantry with French doors bringing light and the garden greenery into the space.

Upstairs, five bedrooms are served by three bathrooms including the palatial main bedroom with adjoining dressing room and en suite. The house is complemented by a ground floor adjoining self-contained apartment with private access.

Designed to work harmoniously with the interiors and with a unique sense of privacy, towering elm trees feature in the garden of formally designed terraces defined by clipped hedges, low stone walls and a small, decorative yet perfectly functional pool linked by a great lawn which frames the "Chateauesque-Georgian" rear façade.

Warmed with ducted heating and appointed with an alarm, cellar and four car garage, this landmark residence whilst wrapped in absolute privacy enjoys immediate proximity to Toorak Road's restaurants and boutique shops, private schools, trams, The Yarra River and Melbourne's iconic Tan running track.
