Built in the 1920s, the magnificent seven bedroom ‘Shandford’ stands as one of the landmarks on Brighton’s revered Golden Mile. It is a classically beautiful home on a picturesque corner island of some 1900sqm, framed by tall, proud gates, a sweeping circular drive and charming front gardens that all evoke a true old school appeal.

As one of Brighton’s founding estates, ‘Shandford’ once occupied a significant sweep of the prestigious precinct. And, to this day, it has retained an invaluable piece of that original holding - its own private laneway at the end of Shandford Avenue that provides direct access to the waterfront.

The superb proportions and marvellous detail expected of a significant home of its era are everywhere – from the grand entrance foyer, elegant formal rooms, and impressive timber panelled study through to the suite of seven wonderfully oversized bedrooms which span the first and second floors and enjoy wonderful views.

Just enough modernity has been injected as well. The kitchen is contemporary and superbly appointed with a butler’s pantry. And there is an expansive cinema ideal for movie buffs and sports fans.

Outdoors is a wonderful lifestyle precinct, with an expansive pool and floodlit tennis court - wrapped by lovely alfresco terraces, its own pretty row of bay boxes and even an enticing fire pit.

And all of it just metres from the wonderful Brighton foreshore, surrounded by the retail, restaurants, and excellent schools of one of Melbourne’s premier suburbs and less than thirty minutes from the CBD.
