Originally constructed in 1891, this historic gem displays a heritage-style facade juxtaposed with sleek, contemporary living inside.

The home was built as an impressive tower for a rum trader to watch ships entering the bay in Melbourne. Today, while the residence retains this history, it also delivers modern living, as renovated by Rosstang Architects.

You will marvel at the interior beauty when stepping inside, including an ornate chandelier, grand hallway entrances and a tessellated tiled floor. The living room sits beside classic Victorian style windows, overlooking the front garden. Designed by eminent landscape architect John Patrick, the home has a perfectly manicured front garden with garage space.

The kitchen takes a modern approach, with marble dolomite island benches, a walk-in pantry and an abundance of Miele appliances. Overhead hangs a circular light sculpture, a feature piece of the kitchen. Glass doors encasing the kitchen in a semi-greenhouse, open out into a beautiful dining area, with soaring ceilings. The kitchen and dining areas act as the heart of the home and present a warm centre ideal for entertaining.

The spacious master suite is encased by Victorian-style windows overlooking the lush garden landscape below.

An additional four bedrooms and home office mean there is ample room for comfortable living and entertaining. The house is brilliantly designed, with bedrooms tucked under staircases or in separate living zones, to ensure spaciousness is felt throughout the house as well as privacy.

With luxury living in mind, this home has been meticulously planned to include independent ducted cooling and heating systems, as well as a gas heated swimming pool.

This historic haven is located in Kew, boasting a short stroll to the resident’s choice of elite Melbourne school or bustling shops and cafes.

A short tram ride away lies Richmond, Fitzroy and East Melbourne. All of these views can be seen from the stately balcony, overlooking the vast Melbourne landscape as originally designed centuries ago.
