As one of Melbourne’s most well-heeled suburbs, Toorak is known for its high walls and solid gates protecting the charming mansions within from prying eyes. At 50 Clendon Road Toorak, this kind of old-world charm is exactly what you’ll find as a quintessential example of the blue-blooded suburb’s classically designed residences, offering scale and attention to detail in equal measure.
Designed by the respected Nicholas Day architecture firm and just a few minutes walk from the Toorak Park cricket and AFL ground, the home is situated on a sweeping 1350sqm block that boasts a competition-sized tennis court, elegant gardens, statement water feature and a pool to beat the summer heat. Truly a site of seclusion and privacy, the surrounding gardens are as much a delight as the thoughtfully designed interior of the residence and represent the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet evening under Melbourne skies after a long day on Collins Street.
Inside, the layout and execution were overseen by the renowned designer Amy Spargo who left no square foot unconsidered, fitting out the home with an epicurean-style kitchen, expansive living and dining spaces and a spiralling staircase up to the second level from the soaring ceilings of the entrance lobby. As a nice touch that you don’t often see, the wallpaper of the home is very nicely selected, with the lounge room enveloped in a library-style bookshelf print while the bedrooms enjoy a lavish floral print.
Perhaps one of the most luxurious spaces within the property is the well-appointed conservatory that opens up onto the gardens outside. Featuring an enormous glass ceiling to coax the maximum amount of natural light indoors, the chequer-board marble floors are another detail that ties the space together.
The home at 50 Clendon Road, Toorak, arrives on the market with a price guide of between $23 million and $25 million and is represented by the team at Forbes Global Properties.
