A celebration of mid-century design initially built in 1958 and then renovated by renowned architect Alistair Knox in 1969, this sensational residence surrounded by leafy private gardens with a pool is situated in an exclusive Kew cul de sac. Advantaged by close proximity to a range of elite private and public schools, it is also near trams, a myriad of shops and cafes in Deepdene, Kew and Auburn and Stradbroke Villages, parks and only metres to bike/walking trails extending to the Yarra River.
An expanse of original stone creates an evocative first impression on the way to the entrance foyer on the lower level. Once inside, steps lead up to the palatial sun-drenched sitting room boasting 3m ceilings, a sixties open fire and stunning 3m sand blasted timber panels recycled from the Melbourne Mint. The formal dining room is adjacent to a versatile retreat or home office also bathed in northern light. Ahead of its time in 1969, the superb kitchen and large scullery still caters to any culinary challenge. The inviting informal living and dining room opens to a private leafy garden with solar heated pool and a large bluestone paved BBQ terrace. The generous main bedroom with en suite and built in robe is accompanied by three additional bedrooms with built in robes and a bathroom.
Ideal for now while offering enormous scope to update and extend or alternatively to rebuild as a new luxury home, it includes an alarm, hydronic and under floor heating, ducted heating, air-conditioners, studio, laundry, irrigation and double carport (STCA). Land size: 913sqm approx.

    About Kew

    Live Like a Local

    Kew has long been considered the home of Melbourne’s elite, and with its history and heritage it’s easy to see why. This handsome suburb is just seven kilometres from the CBD, yet feels like another world. Filled with established trees and beautiful parks, Kew provides a range of activities normally reserved for country living – from a few rounds of golf to a romantic row down the river. It’s also perfect for families looking to provide the very best for their children, as home to some of the most exclusive schools in the state. Faraway from the graffiti-painted laneways of the city, you’ll find a uniquely serene atmosphere that Kew calls its very own.
