This picture-perfect and historic Victorian home, surrounded by almost an acre and a half (approximately 5,131 sqm) of private botanic gardens, has entered the market for the first time in 38 years. This main residence, built up on the hill of Riversdale Road in c1884, has retained all of its grandeur. Set well back from the street and surrounded by old growth oaks and gumtrees, this is not only a landmark but a quiet oasis unique to Melbourne's inner city.

This majestic residence is complemented by a second residence on a separate title - a generous block of 587sqm approx., with a solid brick building also ready for residence.

The garden itself sets this property apart. With soaring established treetops and canopies, colourful garden beds and a sweeping drive, the glorious original home is surrounded by a wide return verandah from which to enjoy the view.

Immediately entering the home, built from the bluestone that is a part of Melbourne's cultural heritage, you are drawn past grand and beautifully restored front rooms, down an arched hallway. The hall opens to a gracious lounge room, grand formal dining room with adjoining bar, and a large library or executive study, all boasting ultra-high ceilings and marble fireplaces.

An inviting family room or den with a marble fireplace is adjacent to the superbly appointed modern kitchen with granite benches. Bathed in natural light, the expansive modern sunroom used as a family and dining room opens from the north to an indoor heated pool with shower and sauna for use in all seasons and affording complete privacy. The swimming pool area opens out onto a paved terrace. The generous main bedroom with floor to ceiling garden view window, welcomes in the sunlight and greenery of the front and side-lawns. This bedroom is well appointed with large dressing room and ensuite. The home has two additional bedrooms, again beautifully restored, with robes and a guest and additional bathroom. This is a home ready to be lived in, while offering scope to easily update if desired.

The main residence also includes an alarm, ducted heating, air-conditioner, powder-room, a good-sized wine cellar, laundry, semi-detached studio or utility room with shower and kitchenette adjacent to an outdoor toilet, ample storerooms, a gardening shed and a double carport.

With pedestrian access from Riversdale Rd, the second residence is a solid brick mid-century building in a garden setting, comprising a large living room, pristine bathroom, laundry and stylish kitchen together with an additional four rooms.
