Toorak 60 St Georges Road
Private Sale - $6,500,000 to $7,000,000
The style of this exceptional solid brick c1930s residence remains immediately impressive and inviting, complemented by a suitably exceptional allotment of some 736m2 in a location acknowledged as one of Melbourne's most alluring. Proximity to several prestigious schools, the Yarra River, Toorak Village, Heyington station and freeway access emphasizes the attraction of the address while appealing privacy and pleasing depth define the allotment. Gracious formal sitting and dining rooms lead to bright informal and family spaces and a stylishly appointed modern kitchen where aspects over a sunny terrace, the heated pool/spa and the garden create a great indoor-outdoor mood. Four bedrooms, each with its own ensuite, one enjoying its own zone downstairs, contribute superlative accommodation while a fifth bathroom accompanies a fabulous, flexible pool pavilion. The presence of an upstairs retreat confirms the family focus of a home where covered alfresco entertaining, ducted and reverse cycle heating/cooling, secure storage and car parking ensure present day enjoyment. Prospects for adding contemporary elements or considering concepts for creating a new home on such an outstanding site, subject to council approval, mean an unforgettable future can match a memorable current context.
