Historic St Kilda Hilltop Mansion C1866

This grand & distinguished Palladian-style residence is nothing short of spectacular!
Set on a wonderful North facing allotment of 559m2 approx behind its elaborate wrought iron fence and abstract gardens, the home has been so well cared for with all the period details intact and features heavy colonnaded verandas and balconies, beautifully aged marble tiles, lofty 16-foot ceilings, original marble fireplaces and polished solid Kauri floors.
Think voluminous rooms, gorgeous architectural detailing with aged patina and lots more potential if you wish.

The soaring entrance hall is spectacular with original marble tiles and pillared arches. The formal sitting room and dining room flow to the modern, bright family at the rear. White walls with shutters throughout enhance the light and breezy interior of this well-appointed family home of over 35 years.

Upstairs there are three king sized bedrooms, two studies/bedrooms and the stunning front balcony overlooks an established garden kept private by a front hedge and trees.
The house is spacious, full of light and beautiful outlooks. It is a home with private areas catering for everyone's individual social work and study needs.
Step outside to an oasis: a Tuscan inspired private courtyard with wall frescoes by Melbourne artist Kate Durham, an undercover veranda, reflection pond and layers of trees citrus and hedging. A garage with room to expand from Dalgety Lane is tucked away to the side.

The compact yet spacious layout is easily adapted to personal use or requirements with scope to further improve. This is a rare opportunity to live in the house of your dreams, practical living with aesthetically inspired classical architecture all around.
