Iconic timeless landmark enhanced for today’s modern living
A once in a life time opportunity exists to secure what is without doubt the best property within Portsea’s private luxury resort, the historic Delgany Estate. Located on Portsea’s highest point directly opposite The Cutting, a short stroll through beautifully maintained grounds leading to the clear waters of Fishermans beach.
Constructed in 1922 by Harold Armytage as his summer home away from his South Yarra Como House residence, this magnificent gated community was transformed in 2008 into a private residential development comprising a unique collection of lifestyle homes and apartments, with no two residences the same.
Set within the original walls of the limestone castle, Apartment No.1 has been redesigned and reconfigured by highly acclaimed architectural designer, Stephen Akehurst. This stunning 38 square residence boasts multiple in-vogue living areas and generous bedroom suites over two levels plus its own on-title lawn terrace with views throughout Delgany’s extensive grounds and Portsea Golf Club.
On the upper level a sweeping sun filled terrace surrounds the study nook and two main bedroom suites, providing elevated views across the established grounds and Port Phillip Bay.
Exquisite ground floor living spaces include stunning formal living room with large original open fire, guest bedroom, entertainers kitchen and dining setting where celebrated chef Hermann Schneider once catered for Melbourne’s elite. The spectacular family room enjoys a garden outlook framed by magnificent arched windows while north facing, sun-drenched Loggia offers the ideal place to relax day or night.
The list of luxury features of this fully air-conditioned apartment is too numerous to mention but includes the castle’s tower with it’s observation deck and flagpole, basement security parking, extensive storage facilities, access to Delgany’s heated swimming pool, gymnasium, 8 acres of manicured gardens and ample guest parking. Delgany residents also have dedicated gateway access to Portsea Golf Course.
