A short half-hour commute or a 25-minute drive south of Central Melbourne, a 10-minute walk to St Kilda Beach and on the shoreline of Port Phillip Bay, lies one of the city’s best-kept secrets, the suburb of Elwood.

Offering a quiet, beachside lifestyle but close to the amenities of the more urban areas of Melbourne, Elwood is lined with Edwardian and Victorian heritage style homes.

Enjoy a walk along the Elwood canal or visit the family-friendly St Kilda Botanical gardens to see some seasonal displays, local indigenous plants, glasshouses and an eco-centre.

The friendly suburb has a strong sense of community and is close to reputable educational institutions such as St Columba’s Primary School which offers International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes.

This historic property “Trefusis” was designed by renowned Melbourne Architect Ernest W M Crouch in the 1890s, and is a fine example of Melbourne’s boom-style architecture, incorporating traits of both Victorian and Queen Anne style homes.

The facade features a Victorian-style verandah with charming valance, positioned back from the road behind established gardens, the house offers privacy and seclusion without being too far out of the city or away from the beach.

Spectacular de Gournay hand-painted gilded wallpaper adorns the walls of the formal lounge/music room at the front of the building, bay windows add some elegance and class and the original fireplace will keep you cosy and warm.

Oak floorboards underfoot, walk down the wide hallway, past two ensuite-equipped bedrooms and executive office out into the vast kitchen, living and dining room with stone fireplace. The 4 meter high ceilings establish a sense of space and grandeur that continues out onto the covered alfresco.

A sapphire tile swimming pool beckons from the lush, manicured gardens at the rear of the property while a sauna and spa will serve you well on crisp Melbourne nights. Further to the rear, you will find a covered double garage and a self-contained gym and studio with laneway access, there is also space to park another 3 cars.

This property is set to go to a private auction on Monday 6 Jun at 12:00 pm and commands a price guide between A$9 to A$9.9 million.
