This significant East Melbourne residence has played an important role in many of Melbourne’s pivotal events, particularly as the setting for meetings that subsequently resulted in the establishment of Australia’s inaugural association of The Queen Victoria Hospital and the Victorian Medical Women’s Association – a body that persists to this day. Following a period where it performed with distinction as the Chrysalis Gallery, this illustrious property has been returned by spectacular renovation to its original role as a wonderful family home. Northern light graces the elegant Italianate sitting room that leads to a refined dining room, with its own butler’s pantry and a series of superb everyday living and dining spaces featuring 300 year old Parisian oak floors and the contemporary contrast of a state-of-the-art kitchen. Above, accessed by stairs or a glass walled lift, four bedrooms and two bathrooms provide alluring accommodation, including a main bedroom accompanied by a romantic balcony, dressing room and stunning marble ensuite. A north-facing library enhances the appeal of this free standing residence surrounded by landscaped gardens, western courtyard with its original 1870’s tiled paving and a light-filled pavilion with bathroom overlooking the rear formal garden. Uncompromised luxury matches compelling character in a location acknowledged for its exceptional lifestyle advantages – walking distance from the CBD and the MCG. Simply the best in the world’s most liveable city! Additional features include wine cellar, excellent security, hydronic heating and cooling, automated sprinkler system and rear off street parking.
