As is with human nature, it's the aesthetic refinements that are immediately compelling, the proportions, the distinguished tapestry of design influence, the views. And, while these attributes are indeed outstanding, the true pedigree of this stately two storey Penthouse are the things you don't see. The expert consideration, the craft, the materials, the time invested into constructing such extreme grandeur made for longevity. Collectively, a capitalisation you rarely come across in contemporary builds.
From the impacting façade and imposing entrance hall, right through to the oversized walk-in robe of the main suite, and soaring, skylit ceilings that luminate the central dining and kitchen, the proportions reflect absolute grandeur. In total, 498sqm of livable area gently divided into a labyrinth of flexible living zones across two levels, complemented by 200sqm of basement incorporating a four/five car garage, cellar and possible gym, with powder room. Add to the internal habitat, an impressive 100sqm of accessible terraces, the largest introduced through a series of French doors coming off the three palatial sitting rooms. Vast and romantic, the garden terrace features uninterrupted city views and serves as an unforgettable entertaining space, high above the neighbouring Toorak rooftops.
Formally comprising of two ensuite bedrooms, each with extensive robing and private terrace, and at least three distinct living areas make up the flexible floorplan. And, as you'd expect, the opulent accommodation is enhanced by high-end features and finishes that underpin the prestige perfectly.
This penthouse's unrivalled location puts it close to leading schools, including Loreto Mandeville Hall. A short walk to Como House and the Yarra Main Trail and surrounded by bespoke green spaces with exclusive shopping, dining and entertaining at your fingertips, the opportunities with such a property are limitless. The opportunity to reside in a veritable work of art, situated in such a premier locale, however, doesn't come often enough. Due Diligence Checklist
