Evoking memories of halcyon days, this Arts and Crafts style 1920s four bedroom, two bathroom residence is rich with period glamour and nostalgia and presides over 1812sqm (approx.) culminating in a spectacular Paul Bangay designed country garden with a swimming pool.
One of the first homes in the Trawalla Estate and residing in Melbourne's finest address surrounded by the most expensive real estate in the state, this four bedroom, two bathroom residence presents a rare Toorak opportunity.
The home has been renovated and extended to create a translucency between the interior and gardens which have been the scene for many garden parties and gatherings against a backdrop of seasonal colour, fragrance and birdsong.
The grounds are divided into outdoor rooms circulating around stunning artisan crafted rock walls and terraces handmade from reclaimed cathedral yorkstone flags from Ireland, a domed central fountain and pond, and superb Bizzaza glass tiled swimming pool designed to sit in the space like a natural lagoon.
The renovation followed the same handmade philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement and designer in the field Willliam Morris replicating intricate detail from solid timber internal doors to hardwood panelling, solid timber vanities, double brick walls using the best clay bricks and handmade timber panelled fireplaces with Italian terracotta bricks and 19th century cathedral yorkstone flags.
Carefully considered finishes from Calacutta marble to natural Italian limestone, hand sculptured bathroom basins, engineered French Oak flooring and handmade Argentinian door furniture further complement the home's exquisite original period detailing.
Grand dimensions are beautifully conveyed throughout the formal living and dining rooms, elegant library and country style kitchen and meals area with a long marble island bench, Carrara marble flooring, freestanding stove and full size wine fridge.
Four bedrooms include the palatial main bedroom privately zoned in its own wing with French doors to the surrounding terraces, bespoke fitted dressing room and sublime bathroom. The three further bedrooms are served by a beautiful main bathroom.
Comprehensive appointments include hydronic heating, alarm, underfloor heating and reverse-cycle air conditioning in the renovated section of the house, external blinds, in-floor cleaning in the swimming pool, handmade oak parquetry entrance foyer, private north-facing front garden with inground trampoline and ample off-street parking.
With excellent scope to further extend or even re-develop with a luxury new home (STCA), this is a rare opportunity to join an elite few in a celebrated neighbourhood close to Toorak Village, independent schools and the Yarra River.
