Home to a number of parks, upmarket cafes and boutique shopping, Caulfield lends itself well to a sophisticated inner-city lifestyle with the advantage of added space. With a median house price of A$1,930,000, the affluent Melbourne suburb features a mix of heritage homes and more modern builds.

Dating back to around 1876, ‘Heatherbrae’ is a rare Victorian mansion that has remained essentially untouched. Original owned by John Charles Holland, a Caulfield Shire councillor, the heritage residence has remained in the same family’s hands for close to a century.

While the 146-year-old property is unrestored, Heatherbrae presents the rare opportunity to own and mould a piece of local history.

Perched on an impressive 3,292 square-metre block, the six-bedroom mansion immediately impresses with its grand scale, iron lacework and tessellated tiles. According to the Glen Eira Historical Society’s photographs, the right portion of the residence was the original home before being extended. Today, the two-storey home reflects elements of Georgian architecture as well as a more decadent Victorian flair, evidenced in the intricate ceiling details, ornate fireplaces and stained glass windows.

Within its substantial allotment, Heatherbrae features a beautiful heritage-listed Moreton Bay fig tree, a large swimming pool, an original wash house and horse stables.

Inside the mansion, palatial proportions set to a formal floorplan echo the property’s former grandeur and opulence.

Leading off of the home’s grand entry foyer is a generously-sized formal living area that enjoys an abundance of natural light streaming through large bay windows. Perfect for sophisticated and formal entertaining, the living room connects with a formal dining room where a servery window ensures dinner guests can easily be served.

Boasting a butler’s kitchen and exceptional proportions, the kitchen is primed for large-scale entertaining and is serviced by an additional separate kitchen and walk-in pantry room across the hallway. A cloakroom, additional formal dining, secondary lounge and home office also feature on the ground floor.

Ascend the stunning timber staircase and you’ll find the breathtakingly large master bedroom, which occupies the upper-level portion of the mansion’s tower. Featuring a dressing room and ensuite, this owners’ retreat is sure to delight with its grand proportions and serene views of the lush, green grounds.

Situated beside Caulfield Racecourse Reserve and Glen Huntly Park and within easy reach of cafes, shopping and restaurants along Glen Huntly Road, this manor places residents in a convenient and central location without compromising on space.

Expressions of interest for this exceptional heritage property, which is pitched between A$6 and A$6.6 million, are due by August 10 at 2pm.
