It’s a tall, proud, and elegant home from the first sight, with a striking Mount Gambier limestone façade that enjoys the wonderful privilege of a prime corner site. This five-bedroom, five-bathroom residence is a shining example of why the collaboration of Christopher Doyle and Royale Construction holds such enduring appeal.

If there is one single achievement that should be called out, it is perhaps the floorplan – it is pure genius. The rooms here have a wonderful sense of light, space, warmth, and exquisite detail. The kitchen has magnificent stone benches, world class appliances and cleverly shares its vast butler’s pantry with the formal dining room, which is complete with a stunning Swarovski crystal chandelier.

Glorious French doors connect the casual living with lavender-scented terraces, a pristine pool, and beautifully manicured grounds. There’s a study at ground level that is magazine cover material – as too is the exquisite spiral staircase that spans all three floors. The principal bedroom with a walk-in robe and hammam-like ensuite is the space of dreams. In fact, every bedroom enjoys its own bathroom and walk in robe – and there’s a second study on this level as well.

And below ground, the beauty pageant continues – with a magnificent, vaulted cellar that could belong in a hip hotel, plus a cool basement bar that could easily flip to a billiards or games room as well as a gym. Plus, parking for up to six cars.

This is one of the most complete family homes to have arrived on the Melbourne market for some time. It is very smart, and it is very beautiful – a very special stage to a very special way of life.
