Generous Vendor Terms Available

Sitting on top of prestigious St Kilda Hill, this Palladian-style Victorian is nothing short of spectacular. An irreplaceable Victorian mansion build which is breath-taking from the street with its elaborate wrought iron fence and abstract gardens, the home has been well cared for with all the beautiful period details intact. Built in 1866 by a merchant Denis Eisenstaedtler as one of a terrace pair it was a gentleman’s town-house and features heavy colonnaded verandahs and balconies, beautifully aged marble tiles, soaring 16 foot ceilings, original marble fireplaces and hard wood floors.

Marvell at the impact of the entrance hall which was featured in Belle magazine and formal rooms flowing to the modern, bright family area at the rear. White walls with shutters throughout enhance the light and breezy interior of this well appointed family home.

Step outside to an oasis: a middle eastern inspired private court yard with wall frescoes by Melbourne artist Kate Durham, an undercover verandah, reflection pond and layers of trees citrus and hedging. A garage with rear access to Dalgety Lane is tucked away to the side with potential for more off street parking with a roller gate STCA.

Upstairs you would expect nothing less than king sized bedrooms, a library, expansive bathrooms, and the stunning front balcony looking out to a majestic silver birch tree.

The spacious rooms can be easily adapted with scope to further extend. This is a rare opportunity to live in one of St Kildas mansion houses and improve the home to your liking with aesthetically inspired classical architecture all around.
