"Invergowrie" c1889 - A Landmark Residence

"Invergowrie" is a magnificent landmark Victorian two storey slate-roofed residence which offers a rare opportunity to acquire a piece of Hawthorn history and restore it to its former glory. The residence evokes memories of a bygone era in Melbourne's heyday when gracious living and entertaining was undertaken on a grand scale. Its historical significance results from its fine standing as an example of mansions owned by wealthy business and professional men of the era. It was designed and built for Sir Thomas Vasey, Secretary of the Metropolitan Gas Company and from the turn of the century owned by Sir William McPherson, leading businessman, Premier and philanthropist, who later moved to "Invergowrie" in Coppin Grove.

Whilst the architect is unknown, "Invergowrie" showcases a mix of elaborate Federation, Queen Anne and Medieval themes featuring a tuck-pointed, red brick façade accented by a gabled roof line, high chimneys and decorative embellishments overlaid with timber. The home's generous proportions are complemented by classic period attributes including coloured leadlight glass, high ornately decorated ceilings and cornices with a grand entrance foyer. Some time ago the home was divided into five flats which are in largely original condition, with the residence requiring a substantial renovation and reconfiguration by its new owners with a vision to create a home in keeping with today's family lifestyles and expectations (STCA). Once restored "Invergowrie" would retain its pre-eminent position as a residence with the capacity to offer the finest family lifestyle with perfect amenities for entertaining or family milestone events in magnificent surroundings.

This outstanding opportunity is further enhanced by an ideal position close to Glenferrie Road shops, cafes, restaurants and the Lido Cinema. Also great local amenities including parklands and the eclectic Auburn Village plus easy access to some of Melbourne's finest schools and the CBD via public transport or CityLink. All making it the perfect choice for imaginative renovators wishing to restore this valuable property whilst enjoying the exceptional capital gains available in this premium area.
