Late Spring? Flurry of Ultra-Exclusive Melbourne Mansions Hit Market - The Age
3 Macquarie Road, Toorak, Victoria
This home has the most beautiful proportions. At more than 900sqm under roof, it is extremely large. And yet it doesn’t seem it. It just feels intimate, calm and inviting.
Which is not unexpected, given it was designed and built by one of Melbourne’s finest architects, Gabor Hubay, as his own home. And he left nothing on the table with its beautiful curation.
2100sqmLand Size (approx.)
Even the choice of land was a masterstroke. A sweep of some 2100sqm, set at the top of prestigious Macquarie Road on a corner site. The home is set at the top of the holding, enjoying a prized north-facing outlook across the rolling lawns and gardens, a floodlit tennis court and a dreamy resort-style pool complex.
The house has a selection of very special spaces to spend time in, including the stunning main lounge, which set down into the grounds like a sumptuous viewing platform. There is a vast and spectacular kitchen, which has been recently remodelled and equipped to world class standards. And the principal bedroom is a destination in itself, beautifully appointed and very zen.
There are four more bedrooms along with self-contained guest accommodation, a downstairs breakout zone, plus a gym, cellar, basement parking for four cars and all the comforts to complete what must stand as one of the beautifully conceived, constructed and presented homes that will come to market in Melbourne for some time.
