Reflecting the scale and symmetry of 18th century Île de France architecture, this elegant Parisian style town residence and its equally breathtaking garden surrounds is situated in one of Toorak's most exclusive cul de sacs.
A formal park-style garden of Red Oak trees that change colour with the seasons provides both an evocative entrance and wonderful privacy. The remarkable attention to detail and uncompromised level of finish is evidenced by the Versailles pattern oak parquetry floors, soaring 3.5 metre ceilings, solid Limestone walls and authentic quality fixtures throughout. Purpose built for entertaining and relaxed living, the tasteful formal sitting and dining room creates a perfect banquet hall with antique Limestone fireplaces at each end and French doors opening to the garden. At the centre of the house, a circular vestibule beneath a dramatic 10 metre sky-lit void provides a more intimate dining space. A generously proportioned informal living room and separate casual dining room both open to a private paved northeast garden with heated pool and full width sun-awning. The French inspired kitchen is focused around an antique butcher's block. A superbly crafted Oak staircase leads up to a magnificent main bedroom with retreat, Limestone fireplace, concealed TV, walk in robe and Indian slate ensuite. A second double bedroom with stylish ensuite and walk in robe is accompanied by a third double bedroom with built in robe, study or office and a designer bathroom boasting a Neo Classical freestanding marble bath. A brilliantly designed hidden "James Bond-style" driveway leads down to a basement art gallery with capacity for parking 6 cars.
A landmark residence, it is impeccably appointed with security, slab heating, air-conditioning, powder-room, laundry, wine cellar, irrigation, garden sculpture, abundant storage options and auto gates. Land: 743sqm approx.
