I quite liked the gay guy Darryl!
his $17.5 Million house in Toorak,
and now this $8 Million Mansion
in St Kilda is for sale. See what you think!
Very contemporary and masculine imo…
(can you see the original ceiling moulding,
large skirting boards etc, and I wonder if it’s
worth bothering retaining these features
when everything is soooo modern???)
And what’s with the lamp to the left, falling over?
is that a comedy thing I wonder…!
I noticed the house has seven bedrooms,
shame they only showed us this one.
I should know, I did a few years ago,
I had an apartment right opposite the beach!
AND here’s what the Agent said about it!
“Clendore” – Iconic Luxury Landmark Proudly residing in the heart of St Kilda’s much celebrated entertainment precinct is this iconic Italianate masterpiece steeped in history and versatility. Located just metres from the beach and Melbourne’s best restaurants, the impressive light-filled mansion bestows three levels and 17 principal rooms of superb proportions and impeccable presentation. Originally built in the 1880s and recently updated, the grand colonnaded building currently serves as a luxurious inner-city family sanctuary. Restored and renovated to exacting standards, the ground floor houses a large study/library with floor-to-ceiling oak bookshelves, private den and two formal rooms – all featuring original cornices, soaring ornate ceilings, limed oak floorboards and marble fireplaces. A sundrenched central atrium and gallery paves the way for a contemporary Northwest oriented entertaining domain comprising a Carrara marble kitchen with European appliances and walk-in pantry, family and meals zone as well as an outdoor deck area. The second and third floors deliver seven bedrooms with limestone en suite bathrooms (including a main bedroom with adjoining designer bathroom and oversized dressing room), a two-tier 12-person cinema and fitted eight-station office. A fourth-level Paul Bangay rooftop garden provides the ultimate setting for fine entertaining and stylish alfresco dining. Enjoying unique 360-degree views across Albert Park, the Bay and CBD, it accommodates a lavish infinity pool, built-in barbeque kitchen and pergola. Other first class features include a 15-person Schindler commercial double-door lift that connects all four floors, European triple-glazed glass, advanced CCTV security, top quality finishes and fittings, smart wiring, zoned air-conditioning, off-street parking and three street frontages. This extraordinary property offers a plethora of opportunities with infinite possibilities. Other potential uses include a boutique hotel, private club, commercial offices, gallery, showroom and embassy.
