Toorak 5 Mandeville Crescent
Inspections strictly by prior appointment
The skill, style and success with which this majestic c1915 residence has moved with the times is evident in all its details, obvious in all its dimensions - particularly a spectacular architecturally designed extension by Emma Templeton, completed just last year. The effect, throughout, is unforgettable.
A series of refined downstairs spaces including classical sitting and living rooms and a study of fabulous proportions is complemented by the character and quality of the fresh contemporary family room/dining domain, that flows seamlessly through double-glazed steel-frame windows to elegant decking beneath a retractable pergola.
A kitchen equipped with Gaggenau appliances, stone and solid walnut surfaces, integrated fridge/freezer and a walk-in pantry performs with perfection in a home where the story is all about style.
Two downstairs bedrooms sharing a divine bathroom are the prelude to four further bedrooms, each defined by desirability, on an upstairs level accompanied by two additional bathrooms including the sophisticated ensuite of a main bedroom with a walk-in robe and romantic balcony.
The allure and the luxury, the evocative fireplaces, hydronic heating, dedicated home office zone, laundry chute and storage lead an extensive list of further features on a landscaped allotment, with ample parking and rear ROW to a garage, accessed from Mandeville Lane.
Some 802m2 provides appealing, leafy privacy in fabulous setting moments from major schools, Toorak station, parks and Beatty Avenue's charming village.
