One of Toorak’s most desirable homes “Benyar”, this magnificent 1930s English style residence is wrapped within established landscaped 1,065sqm (approx.) grounds with exceptional five bedroom, five bathroom (plus powder room) family accommodation, superb Stuart Rattle designed interiors and a north-facing entertainer’s garden with loggia, heated swimming pool and ensuited pool house.
The residence showcases superb original elegance, contemporary family livability and expansive dimensions against a backdrop of romantic gardens. The timeless architecture is complemented by beautiful original parquetry flooring, Perrin and Rowe tapware and Villeroy & Boch sinks, with extensive use of the world’s finest marble, stone and travertine throughout the bathrooms, kitchen and outside areas.
The sun and sky, light and greenery flood the reception rooms through banks of arched casement windows and are scaled to accommodate extensive entertaining or intimate gatherings. Three internal and one external fireplace make all areas of the home inviting in winter.
A separate TV room with surround sound and a beautiful open-plan kitchen, meals and informal lounge room all extend to the northern loggia with open fireplace, overlooking the solar heated pool. A fireside lounge and dining area, Rinnai strip heating and stone topped BBQ kitchen provide amenity for year round enjoyment; while a pool house with fully equipped bathroom is a great space for a gym or yoga room.
The kitchen is state-of-the-art with the finest finishes, marble and amenity. Revolving around a huge central island, appointments include European appliances such as built-in steamer, double and single basins and Zip Hydro Water Tap. Other kitchen features include double Miele ovens, two integrated refrigerators, walk-in pantry and workstation.
The restored original timber staircase leads to four oversized bedrooms (three with fully appointed ensuites) plus a magnificent marble central bathroom, which combine to provide superior family accommodation. The main bedroom suite is stunning and features a dressing room alongside extensive built-in robes and luxurious ensuite. A large study, with restored floorboards, can also be utilised as a fifth bedroom.
