Kew 292 Cotham Road
Without doubt one of the most elegant, evocative examples of Italianate architecture in Melbourne, if not the nation, ROSS HOUSE has clearly thrived since its original design and construction c1889. Today, this stunning residence and its spectacular 4,600 sqm approx. of elegantly landscaped grounds reflect the respect for their significance that characterized a renovation of outstanding quality and comprehensive reach. Grand yet not grandiose, impressive yet not imposing, the romance of the external aesthetics is matched by the refinement of the internal spaces. A fabulous tiled hall introduces three wonderful reception rooms that precede superb everyday living/dining areas and an open-plan kitchen where the mood is modern and the focus is family. A double bedroom and a bathroom adds downstairs flexibility to five further bedrooms and three additional bathrooms on an upstairs level that offers memorable city sights from its majestic balcony and includes a luxurious main bedroom with a sophisticated spa bath ensuite. A sublime swimming pool surrounded by terrace expanses, a barbeque kitchen and its own pool house/bathroom is accompanied in the gardens by a full-size flood-lit tennis court, sweeping lawns, magnificent mature trees and securing garaging for six cars. Proximity to several leading schools, tram routes and Kew Junction shopping ensures ROSS HOUSE enjoys every lifestyle advantage of a location that, in keeping with property itself, has only become more desirable with the passage of time.
