Gilt-edged Golden Mile Luxury
Holding court with the most exclusive real estate in Victoria in Toorak’s Golden Mile, this bespoke 1938 two-storey Marcus Martin designed residence has been transformed by Hecker Guthrie into a living environment of world class standing.
Distinguished and distinctive, the residence covets a prized corner setting with a second frontage to Kooyong Road; while the desirable north and west aspect maximises the full use of the low-maintenance entertainer’s garden with a gas heated magnesium swimming pool.
Opening internally to the natural light and a series of beautifully proportioned main rooms, the perfect balance of formal, casual and entertainment areas are achieved across the two levels with customised steel framed glass interior partitions, windows and doors adding a translucency between the spaces and intimate connection with the garden.
Innovative, luxurious and functional, the epicurean kitchen is centered with a Lacanche double oven and beautifully appointed with an English sink and tapware, Italian marble surfaces and island, integrated Liebherr double refrigerator and butler’s pantry with Smeg oven, Vintec wine fridge and second dishwasher. A second kitchen with a Capital BBQ and Husky wine fridge features outdoors on the Portuguese limestone terrace overlooking the private floodlit garden and pool.
A combination of warm timbers, natural stone and luxurious brass details backdrop the interior including French oak herringbone flooring, the extensive use of Italian marble, custom joinery by Swiss artisan Mortis & Tenon and exquisite Bishop Décor polished plaster. Created by Apparatus, a premium New York lighting designer, light fittings are a work of art and focal point of the room.
A testament to the home’s quality and refinement, four exceptional bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms include the luxurious north-facing main bedroom suite that relishes his and her dressing rooms, one with a balcony with handmade terrazzo Italian tiles, Superyacht carpet and an exquisite ensuite with a solid marble freestanding bath. A study on this level is perfect for the kids; while a ground-floor study features integrated filling cabinets and in-floor wiring.
