“Macedon” – Grandeur and Elegance
A Once in a lifetime opportunity to secure the property “Macedon” in this sought after location, this circa 1915 Federation Mansion, located in the exclusive area of Kew on the famous ‘Selbourne Road’ carries great character and is a symbol of early Kew settlement with 12 foot high ceilings and original tessellated tiles layering the outdoor entrance foyer and indoor foyer. This historical mansion is perfectly located as it is across from Melbourne’s finest schools, Glenferrie road cafes, shops and public transport. A quick stroll down Glenferrie road will take you to the station and a tram stop is located right around the corner.
Held tightly between only two families and their children through the last 100 years this home is truly remarkable and highly sought after as it has never been offered to the public in the last twenty-three years and is a huge double block of land (1400sqm approx) with a 30 metre frontage.
A beautiful hotel style pool area (recently renovated), large maintained gardens and an indoor/outdoor entertainment area with decking and outdoor bbq/cooking area is one of the many finishing touches to this historical Mansion, as lead light glass windows shine glistening light through the large entrance foyer and hall onto numerous crystal chandeliers lacing the entire property. More features of this property are the remarkable high ceilings with pressed metal plaster intricately hand crafted 100 years ago and blue stone foundations that keep this house strong and solid over its lifetime. A huge dining room holds such grandness as it features a 12 seater table and open fireplace, a perfect room for entertaining and dinner parties, also the house features a sophisticated and timeless formal lounge overlooking the front garden through large bay windows exquisite for reading a book on a winters day or a business meeting beside another traditional fireplace, one of the five fireplaces in the house. In total the house consists of 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, library, study overlooking the pool area and a long driveway running along the side of the property leading to a double garage.
Expect nothing but the best from 24 karat gold plated sinks and tap finishes to rich, elegant green marble bench tops and new bathrooms this is a real charmer filled with class and impeccable design. The house has been slowly renovated and recently renovated again (completed in the last few weeks) and maintained to the highest standards yet still keeping touch and blending with its Federation style. Every single room has a purpose, holds unique features, and has been specifically designed by designers to maintain the highest standards of living and lifestyle. Step into this house to feature all of the above and much more like a personalised dressing room/converted bedroom and widows walk overlooking the city and the whole of Kew. Every room is impeccable, well thought out and recently re-designed/renovated.
Imagine the possibilities and lifestyle this charming house brings…
