Winemaker Philip Murphy has listed his Mornington Peninsula residence and winery for private sale with an asking price of about $8.5 million.

The move comes after the property, which has views across the southern end of Port Phillip Bay, was passed in at a private auction late last month.

Murphy built the Mediterranean-inspired property at 484 Purves Road in Main Ridge about eight years ago and harvested the first grapes from the 0.8-hectare vineyard in 2007, under his label Philip Murphy Estate. Read more…

A 1930s property, designed by architect Marcus Martin, has gone on the market in Toorak with expectations of $4.8 million-plus.

The property, at 10 Yarradale Road, was featured in Australian Home Beautiful in 1937 – the year after its completion. For the past 15 years, it has been the home of Judy Ward, a former PricewaterhouseCoopers partner, and her late husband, Philip Molyneux, a former chairman of Equity Trustees.

The two-storey house has multiple living spaces including a dining room with attached marble-topped bar opening to a courtyard, separate study, and four bedrooms around a central first-floor retreat.

Amid the Edna Walling/Robert Boden-designed gardens is a solar-heated swimming pool with cabana and a treehouse.

Jock Langley, of Abercromby’s, has the listing. It goes to auction at 11.30am on September 14.

For Anna Young, daughter of entertainer Johnny Young, the “wow” factor was important when designing a house for her family, but so was the need to create something functional.

“We also really thought about the kids a lot in the process,” says Ms Young, who has four children under 10.

Owner of the Johnny Young Talent School in Richmond, she and her husband, builder Andrew Kenneally, bought the then “derelict” property at 24 Prentice Street in Elsternwick five years ago and overhauled it. The two-storey house has four bedrooms, living and dining areas, opening to a deck adjoining a pool. For auction on August 17 at 11.30am. Sam Goddard and Jock Langley of Abercromby’s, are quoting $1.45 million-plus.
