Renowned for its affluent addresses and prestigious streets, Toorak commands a median house price of A$5.17 million with homes sitting on the market for 40 days.

Designed in 1936 by architects Hughes and Orme, this distinguished solid brick Georgian residence is one of Melbourne’s most prestigious estates.

Majestically set amongst approximately 7,800 square metres of botanic parklands that were formerly the grounds of Victoria’s first Government House, there simply isn’t another home like this.

Taking pride of place on Toorak’s premier boulevard, this estate immediately impresses with its long driveway lined with a high-walled garden and avenue of rare Alnus Glutinosa trees.

Inside, you’re immersed in a haven of refined elegance where warm oak floors, timber panelling, Georgian windows and ornate arches create a classical atmosphere.

From a vast reception hall, you’re introduced to a gracious drawing room and comfortable sitting room, both with fireplaces, as well as a wonderful garden room embracing the picturesque grounds.

At the heart of the residence, a grand dining room is serviced by a separate kitchen, breakfast room and butler’s pantry. Also flowing out from the central reception is a spectacular entertaining terrace framed by a west-facing walled garden and mature oak tree.

Upstairs is the ultimate accommodation area comprising three double bedrooms with ensuites and robes, four additional bedrooms, another bathroom, two dressing rooms, a library area, retreat and a study. 

The separate double-storey converted stables offers a premium self-contained guest accommodation with two or three bedrooms, its own private walled garden and car access from Dalriada Street.

Explore the rest of the tranquil estate and you’ll find breathtaking gardens featuring rare and established trees planted as far back as 1849, as well as a lawn tennis court, Victorian glasshouse, and a rose garden.

As only the second time this magnificent estate has become available, ‘Blair House’ presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure a prestigious property steeped in history. The property comes with a price guide of A$65 million to A$70 million with expressions of interest closing on August 8 at 3pm.
