Revealed: One of Caulfield North's finest family estates

Some of Melbourne's finest real estate gems remain hidden for decades. This North Caulfield double-fronted late Federation villa, coming to market for the first time in more than 40 years, is one such property.
Set on a breathtaking 2008 sqm of lush, landscaped grounds, this much loved family home and grand entertainer, renovated and adapted for today's contemporary family with a four bedroom plus study floorplan, includes a floodlit tennis court, heated swimming pool and plenty of indoor-outdoor entertaining.

Originally known as Clarence Lodge, it was designed by architect R.B. Rieusset and built in 1890 for a successful Boom-era businessman and his wife. Norwood Road, linking Dandenong Road and Orrong Road, was to become an enclave of notable Melburnians whose future residents would include a prominent manufacturer, a knighted judge, and an importer.
The home's gable, distinctive bay window, leadlight windows and return verandah with turned posts, lattice frieze and tessellated tiles point to the Federation style.

Today that picture perfect facade opens to reveal a grand parquetry-floored vestibule with a focus on entertaining. From the grand sitting room, music room with bay window, original leadlight windows and frieze, to the formal dining room with deep scarlet walls and carved timber mantlepiece and the luxe main bedroom with ensuite, this house brims with refined period character.

Timber floors flow throughout the formal front of the house, past the powder room, pristine central bathroom and three more bedrooms before arriving at the informal living domain overlooking the back verandah, swimming pool and garden.

The luxury German-designed Poggenpohl kitchen has a five and a half metre long stone island bench with Gaggenau appliances --wok burner, induction cooktop, oven and steam oven, warming drawer and two Liebherr fridge/freezers are integrated into a wall of high gloss metallic finished cabinetry.

At the end of the garden, a two storey self-contained two bedrooms, one bathroom apartment has a Neff/Miele kitchen and downstairs garaging for two cars with room for 4 more cars.
Securely set behind a high fence, this remarkable home includes ducted heating and cooling, cellar, attic storage, bore water, garden irrigation and security.
