Generous Vendor Terms Available

Grandly sitting atop prestigious St Kilda Hill, this Palladian-style residence is nothing short of spectacular. Breath-taking from the street view with its elaborate wrought iron fence and abstract gardens, the home has been so well cared for with all the 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, lofty 16 foot ceilings, original marble fireplaces and hard wood floors.

Marvell at the stunning impact of the entrance hall and formal rooms blending with the modern bright informal family area at the rear. White walls with shutters throughout enhance the light and breezy interior of this solid well designed 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 pool and layers of trees citrus and hedging. A garage with rear access to Dalgety Lane is tucked away to the side.

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. A well-loved family home which has been enjoyed and loved for over 30 years.

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