One of Brighton’s finest Victorian mansions has hit the market, sitting on a substantial plot of land in the hotly contested neighbourhood.

The 1887 ‘Ellesmere’ estate, which resides on a 1477sqm lot, was originally the home of Thomas Wilson, a long-serving councillor of Brighton.

‘Ellesmere’ is a great representation of a late-Victorian mansion that has been tastefully and efficiently maintained, with the modern touches expected in a home of such craftsmanship.

Rich historical details, Tasmanian Oak parquetry flooring, and Italian marble benches compliment antique marble fireplaces, towering ceilings with original ceiling roses, and projecting bay windows to create an alluring abode.

This beautifully decorated property, updated for modern living, has four bedrooms, a study, and extra guest quarters in the lovely historic gatehouse, offering an exquisite living situation.

A luxuriously appointed Italian marble kitchen with Miele appliances flows seamlessly into the living and dining spaces, with ducted heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, hydronic in-floor heating in the bathrooms, and ducted vacuum as optional amenities.

Stepping outside to the back of the property, a north-south tennis court is complemented by a magnesium 20-meter lap pool and spa, which is surrounded by meticulously maintained and planted plants.

A completely controlled extension roof gives the perfect outdoor zone for entertaining, and a pool house with a gymnasium, steam room, and second bathroom allows versatility.

Joel Fredman from Fredman Property Group said the home will appeal to those who want a significant landholding with spacious outdoor zones.

“It is very private from the street, but as soon as you walk in you have this lovely verandah and lacework,” he said.

“Everywhere you look, it is either the period detail of the original house or something modern that is added in, it all complements the house, all fits in really well.”
