Inspect by appointment between the advertised times.
Exclusively located in iconic "Amesbury House", designed in the early 1920s by renowned architect Walter R. Butler, this magnificent apartment's impressive dimensions and light-filled living spaces promise a superb contemporary lifestyle in the highly acclaimed Domain precinct, just a short stroll to the Botanic Gardens, shops, leading schools and several transport options.
Spacious with the feel of a large home, its vast entry hall, high ceilings, beautifully proportioned interiors, sun drenched living and a terrace ideal for year round entertaining, make this the cream of South Yarra apartment living.
"Amesbury House" was built for Major General Harold William Grimwade, a name synonymous with Melbourne society. Its commanding entrance foyer, dominated by a graceful staircase and leadlight windows could rival many of London's exclusive mansion apartments. Fully renovated for contemporary comfort, the apartment retains the classic charm and sophistication that made "Amesbury House" loved by generations of wealthy Victorians.
A flexible floorplan provides up to four bedrooms, an expansive living room, formal dining, superbly appointed bathrooms, study and luxurious powder room. Timber, marble and stone finishes and gas fireplaces add warmth and character to the superb interiors where entertaining in the living room or relaxing on the north facing terrace become an everyday reality. The formal dining room continues the luxury, while the dine-in kitchen with three Miele ovens is served by an adjoining butler's pantry that incorporates many original design elements.
Privately zoned in their own wing, the bedrooms are served by two luxurious bathrooms. The sublime main bedroom suite has a luxe bathroom with freestanding oval bath and separate glass framed shower, while another spacious bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and dressing room has an equally impressive bathroom. There are two more bedrooms, a retreat which could be a fourth bedroom and a separate study.
With its elegant powder room, storage for books and treasured artefacts, hydronic heating, sumptuous silk curtains, laundry, security and secure car park, this alluring apartment is walking distance to both Melbourne Boys' Grammar and Melbourne Girls' Grammar, with easy access to more schools, the city tram, Toorak Road shops and eateries and a host of other lifestyle attractions.
