“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…

    Vendor, J & C   

    May did a fantastic job in selling our home which was completed in a timely fashion and for the price we expected. May is organised, knowledgeable and very professional. I highly recommend her and Weast to anyone who is selling a property.

    Vendor, P & S   

    Thank you so much for the effort you put into selling our home. The offer you achieved was beyond our expectations, If in the future when we are selling our house again, you will be our agent of choice. Good luck May.

    Buyer, C & M   

    May was very helpful throughout the process of viewing, inspecting and negotiating the purchase of our new home. She was friendly and knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the purchase.

    Vendor, Nick & Jackie   

    May showed integrity and most of all we trusted her. My advice to anyone considering selling their home is that they must feel comfortable with their agent. We would have no hesitation in recommending May to anyone trying to decide between agents.

    Buyer, Mr J. Ding   

    Since we speak very little English it's very important that May understands our needs. She helped us find the most suitable property within our budget. May also recommended and arranged a few private schools for our family to visit. Our son now is happily enrolled in a prestigious college near our new home, he couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much for your help and time!

    Buyer, Sam   

    We were impressed by May’s enthusiasm and efficiency; she helped us to see the property with its advantages and disadvantages. She analysed our needs and pointed out the most important things on our list. She was able to negotiate with the owner and made it happen.

    Vendor M.B   

    One of the very Best Agents in Melbourne. Achieved the best possible result.
    I was fortunate to have May selling my property in Bayside area April 2017 and May was presented with many difficult situations she had to overcome. May`s professionalism showed through on all occasions in all situations with an outstanding result achieved with the sale. One situation involved Tenants who made life extremely difficult relative to inspections and cooperation. May was able to negotiate with the tenants and maintain a good working relationship under extreme circumstances Also May didn`t leave a stone unturned when it came to prospective purchasers and followed up all until it became evident they were not able to purchase. She is a diligent person who is tireless with her efforts to sell.

    Vendor V.R   

    We are very happy with the outcome that was achieved. Price was better than expected and the inconvenience was minimal and sale was achieved in good time. At this point of time we would certainly consider using may again.

    Vendor, DH   

    After dealing with many local agents, it was a pleasure dealing with May Wang from Weast. Her efficient and effective work resulted in an extremely prompt and great sale for us. May remained positive throughout our campaign and she worked diligently to get the best possible outcome for us. She was honest with us throughout and made no promises that she could not back up. The entire process from listing, photos, inspections and sale was so professionally handled. A great price achieved so quickly and efficiently is recommendation in itself for May. Thanks again May!

    Buyer, KB   

    We highly recommend May as a hard working, professional, warm and honest agent. Just when our house hunt looked like it was going to last forever, along came May. She restores our faith in the process of purchasing and real estate agents. We really felt as though we could put our trust in May. Obviously May was working for the vendor, although she always acted professionally with open and honest communication; worked hard to chase the sale (being in sales myself I know this is not always the case - especially given the current house market) and made the whole experience pleasant and stress free. We highly recommend May.

    Buyer, B.H   

    Very helpfull and attentive a pleasure to deal with...

    Vendor, M.S   

    Focus and Dedication! If you are looking for an agent with focus, dedication, responsive communication, innovative planning and strategies and access to high end buyers from Australia and China, May Wang is that person. We highly recommend her to others looking to sell.

    Vendor, Bron   

    I was very nervous about the whole business of selling my home.. May has a terrific way of explaining all you need to know, listening to any concerns, instilling confidence and following through professionally. I felt 'in good hands' and the communication was clear, upfront and no 'mucking around' with an honest appraisal and expectations. My home was sold so fast at a good price that I still cannot believe it! It was fabulous to avoid the whole auction process and I knew that May was bringing the right people straight to my door with the minimum of fuss. I would highly recommend May anytime.
