Definitely a property for someone who enjoys the best of Melbourne’s outdoor life, ‘Melrose’, in the ever-popular Harkaway, is a stately Victorian-era home like no other.
Listed by Paul Dabb and Richard Davis of Barry Plant Berwick with a $5,500,000-$6,000,000 price guide, this unforgettable estate offers a rare opportunity to purchase an extraordinary fusion of historical charm and modern-day luxury.
Set in an elevated position, offering commanding views from its very own tower across the district to Port Phillip and Westernport Bays, you’ll probably never want to leave this extensive property once you’re home.
With 20 acres, 137-163 Harkaway Road offers plenty of space for any outdoorsy person to enjoy life to the fullest, or maybe even contemplate some further extension or addition to the accommodation – perhaps even running a small business.
As you might expect, there’s a full-size swimming pool, grass tennis court and a climate-controlled gym to help keep your fitness regime going, or, if you’re not quite the serious sporty type, somewhere just to relax and work off the stress after long days in the office.
Further recreational activities such as horse riding can be enjoyed as this wonderful property has stables, laneway-divided paddocks and ample shedding areas.
And the spacious house itself? It truly is a stunner!
This five-bedroom grand Victorian-style property has managed to retain the history of past times with a recent sympathetic refurbishment highlighting some of its traditional Victorian features, such as the soaring ceilings and original fireplaces.
Take a few minutes to imagine yourself as the ‘Lord of your castle’, looking down from your personal tower across the Victorian landscape – realising that you’re not far from the CBD and all local amenities and yet it feels like you’re in a different world!
