"Monserrat", a classic example of a single-storey Victorian Italianate mansion, graces a magnificent garden spanning over 2,200sqm and reminiscent of a country estate. It presents a rare opportunity to purchase a landmark home of historic and architectural significance - one of the earlier homes in Surrey Hills, built following the area's sub-division after the opening of the railway line in 1853. Designed by and built for its owner, architect George Jobbins, the original features remain relatively intact other than a new entrance created by closure of the original access.

"Monserrat" is defined by separate wings on either side of an expansive informal living and dining room with a cathedral ceiling, bookshelves, a stained glass window, Baltic Pine floors and an unusual Spanish staircase which leads to a rooftop observation deck with 360deg views and City skyline glimpses. The home features period delights such as the original tessellated-tile and arched hallway flowing to four bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms, laundry and powder room. Plus a sitting room and elegant formal dining room, which leaves a lasting impression, and a superbly appointed granite kitchen with breakfast room, Falcon gourmet stove and Miele dishwasher. The garden also houses a fully self-contained bungalow, IG spa and private alfresco dining area. Other features include hydronic heating, iron lacework verandahs, ceiling roses, marble OFPs, box bay windows, underground wine cellar and double garage plus off-street parking.

This impressive home is very desirably positioned, enjoying the highly sought-after family benefits of such areas, including close proximity to Surrey Hills and Mont Albert villages, Maling and Whitehorse Road shops and cafes, John August Reserve plus an excellent array of schools - Chatham Primary is a short walk - and transport options.
