Elite Stonnington Estate: superb opportunity

By private appointment.

Please contact the agent to arrange an inspection of the property.

On the market for the first time in 80 years and set in the exclusive Stonnington Estate, this substantial 1935 solid brick home offers a comfortable lifestyle in this prized residential pocket close to schools, transport, freeway access and premium boutique shopping.

The four bedroom, two bathroom home with formal and informal living areas designed by distinguished Collins Street architect, Charles N. “Nev” Hollinshed, has been in the same family since 1939. Alluring and set in magical gardens, this home is perfect for those wanting to further renovate (STCA) the home to create the ultimate family home situated in one of Malvern’s most coveted pocket’s.

Behind a charming picture book façade beautifully proportioned evocative interiors include a den or study with open fireplace, and formal dining room with French doors to a north-west facing courtyard and easy access to the kitchen. The grand sitting room overlooking the front garden has as its crowning jewel a superb timber lined, cathedral ceiling. Timber paneled internal doors throughout reflect the architect’s love of timber which he used in many private and public commissions including a 1934 renovation of His Majesty’s Theatre in the CBD where he decorated the auditorium and foyers in rich Australian timbers.

The 1980s kitchen overlooks the family room with views to the north -west paved terrace and back garden. The original maid’s room is now a bedroom off the family room with a bathroom and laundry nearby.
A traditional arched window on the landing frames green garden views while three upstairs bedrooms include the master with a large fitted dressing room, window seats and craftsman built cabinetry. The original 1930s tiled bathroom with heated towel rails serves the bedrooms.

Leading down to the garage a solid timber staircase is an early example of a garage with internal entry. More features of this inviting property include ducted heating, two open fireplaces, reverse cycle air con, vast attic storage and off-street parking.
