110352WOW_50E836FA8Manningham circa 1870


Old world grandeur unites with modern elegance in this history-rich family home poised in a prestigious address.  Timeless quality is evident in every detail of the circa 1870 Victorian.  Throughout you’ll find an easy cohesion between the classic and the contemporary, and all updates are sensitive to the home’s period origins.


The grand foyer sets a stately tone as it opens onto the formal sitting area and dining room, both showcasing antique features.


Here, impossibly tall ceilings work with leadlight windows, Blackwood floors and detailed wall panelling to conjure warmth and commanding character.  In brilliant contrast, the open-plan casual meals and living area provides a fresh, light-immersed backdrop perfect for the everyday.


 Large picture windows frame the private courtyard and heated in-ground pool, making them a focal point.  To the side, the conservatory and barbequing area provides yet another fabulous entertaining space.  Of course, the striking state-of-the-art kitchen is a highly notable feature, what with its stone-topped island bench, stainless-steel appliances, and roomy butler’s pantry.


The bedrooms have been thoughtfully distributed throughout the home to assuage the needs of a large or growing family. Appointed with feature fireplaces and ample robes, they each enjoy palatial proportions and handy bathroom access.

Additionally, the master suite benefits from balcony views over the lush grounds, a separate dressing room and a sleek bathroom complete with spa bath.  Transcending time, this magnificent historic home stands proudly in an oak-lined street a mere stroll from the shops and delights of Kew Junction.  Prominent private schools are also close by.
