Positioned 11 kilometres east of Melbourne’s CBD, Surrey Hills boasts a reputation as one of the city’s greenest and most tranquil locales. The suburb is home to a slew of affluent homes and classical architecture, experiencing a median house price of A$2.35 million as homes tend to stay on the market for 30 days.

Behind the striking façade of this circa 1885 Surrey Hills property is a rich history, woven through intricately designed interiors and luxurious finishings.

‘Yielima’, is an iconic piece of early Victoria, once belonging to a successful corn merchant, before becoming a Catholic convent. Today it is an opportunity to provide every aspect of lavish living for the modern family or professional couple.

Showcasing classical Italian excellence, this property features bay windows, open fireplaces, a classic return-verandah and ornate ceilings.

The property is fronted by a white picket fence that opens to a symmetrical and perfectly styled front lawn, exuding charm from the outset.

Behind the home’s grand exterior are a myriad of luxury appointments, including an underground wine cellar, spacious sitting room, study with an in-built desk and a fully-equipped laundry.

Occupying the entire second floor is a palatial accommodation wing including a master bedroom that benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, private balcony and ensuite. The remaining three bedrooms enjoy built-in robes and generous space.

The garden space is a contemporary take on outdoor entertaining, seen through a swimming pool and deck area and bordered by immaculately manicured greenery.

Moments from all the action, this property is tucked on a peaceful leafy street, with proximity to sought-after Melbourne schools, shopping precincts and leafy parks.

A prime example of historical excellence and modern style, this property is set to go to private auction on Wednesday the 31st of August, with a price guide of A$6 to A$6.6 million.
