Marvellous St Osyth, A Grand Victorian Mansion

Stunning in every sense, this sensational family home offers a dream lifestyle in the heart of Camberwell .
Welcome to St Osyth, c 1896, a historically significant five bedroom plus study Italianate Victorian mansion set in Ian Lyall-designed gardens. A sympathetic renovation and extension effortlessly combines the beauty of its period past with every contemporary convenience.
Soaring ceilings and impeccable proportions provide elegant formal living and dining rooms, a superb study, television room or second study and magnificent marble kitchen overlooking the informal living and dining area which opens to the garden complete with a loggia and in-ground swimming pool.
St Osyth is a home with a history, owned by only five families in its 127 years. Initially known as Monda, it was home to internationally renowned engineer, Anthony George Maldon Michell, who became one of the world's most distinguished engineers and winner of the prestigious James Watt medal.
Lavish it certainly is, but St Osyth is also a family home that lets you relax and enjoy its generous spaces. The tiled verandah with original cast iron lace work welcomes you into the foyer with dining room and formal living with fireplace and marble mantlepiece to the right. Both have glorious garden vistas. Another hall leads to the fitted study and television room, then onto the informal living zone and Calacatta marble kitchen. The kitchen, with marble benchtops, French Lacanche stove, deep porcelain sinks and butler's pantry, is modelled on that of a French country villa.
Combining classic and contemporary, St Osyth has floors made from Wandoo timber salvaged from an old woolshed in Western Australia, marble mantlepieces, chandeliers in most rooms and pendant lights. Bathrooms have imported German basins, marble and exclusive tapware.
Land: 1240sqm (approx).
