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…

TOO often high-end homes in Melbourne fall into two categories: the fantastic and the garish. But while there’s no accounting for taste, as they say, some high-end properties fail to find a buyer because they simply are not suitable for a family home. Read More..

As well as an 1838 homestead, the Tallarook property was famously owned by the late BHP chairman, Essington Lewis, and features stables which are leased to Carlton & United Breweries who house their Clydesdale horses there.

First settled by Joseph Hawdon, an ”overlander” from New South Wales, it is also where explorers Hume and Hovell camped at Christmas 1824.

Owner Peter Gillooly bought it in the early 1990s and extensively renovating the six-bedroom homestead about the year 2000 under the guidance of Stuart Rattle.

”There’s a lot of us in there,” says the ex-Tattersalls chief executive, who, along with wife Sandra, lives in East Melbourne, but has owned a farm in the area since 1984. The homestead, at 365 Upper Goulburn Road, comes with a horizon swimming pool and tennis court and mature gardens.

The 162-hectare property, plus about 16 hectares lease, has three kilometres of Goulburn River frontage, a 4.9-hectare vineyard, three cottages and machinery sheds.

An expressions of interest campaign closes on November 25 at 5pm. Jock Langley, of Abercromby’s, says the most recent sale of unimproved land with Goulburn River frontage was $5065 a hectare. ”This will sell for considerably more given the fantastic improvements,” he said.

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.

In the Press : For the young at heart

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.

SOLD
On a quiet tree-lined Toorak cul-de-sac a crowd of 60 wandered up to this pair
of maisonettes, which is a likely development site. Auctioneer Tim Derham’s
raspy voice carried well but made no initial impact on the observers after his
vendor bid of $3,500,000, as he was immediately forced to go through the motions
of having a break to consult. The three most interested buyers were roused by
the circuit breaker into brisk bids of $50,000 steps, until a bidder asked if
the property was on the market. After a mini-conference with the owners in the
driveway, it was declared on the market at $3,750,000. Mr Derham advised
boldness from the bidders, but the property found its price without too much
drama. Bought under the hammer for $3,840,000, a healthy $5300/m2 for the
vendors.

Historic eastern star flaunts significant assets overseas

Pollster and serial mayoral candidate Gary Morgan is about to list his historic East Melbourne mansion in George Street, which will be aimed at international buyers.

The chairman of Roy Morgan Research has picked a new home in the area, spending $5,155,000 to get a 14-room Victorian villa on Powlett Street about a fortnight ago.

Morgan had to pay $780,000 above the reserve to take ”Claverings” at the hotly contested auction.
pp-east-mel-1_729-620x349.jpg

The two-storey Victorian he is selling was designed by famed architect Charles Webb in 1864 and is considered to be one of the best houses in East Melbourne.

The property at 193 George Street has seven bedrooms, two reception rooms, a drawing room, two studies, three kitchens, 18th-century marble fireplaces, marble floors and cedar doors. There’s also a coach house with a self-contained apartment.

Jock Langley of Abercromby’s is believed to be targeting international buyers in a sales campaign that will run until late April. Nobody associated with the property wants to talk price, but industry sources say the starting point is likely to be about $10 million.

pp-east-mel-2_729-620x349.jpg

‘I won’t sell if I don’t get the right price,” Mr Morgan tells Private Property. ”I think when people see it they will realise it’s one of Melbourne’s best homes.”
