Man­sion’s his­tory set in blue­stone

Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

A STUN­NING blue­stone man­sion steeped in colo­nial his­tory is on the mar­ket, with the price ex­pected to ex­ceed $10 mil­lion.

The gothic re­vival res­i­dence, “d’Es­taville”, was built by Knight & Kerr ar­chi­tects — the same minds who de­signed Vic­to­ria’s Par­lia­ment House.

The her­itage-listed site, at 7 Barry St, Kew, was built in 1859 for Vic­to­ria’s first at­tor­ney gen­eral, who later be­came chief jus­tice.

The land­mark prop­erty has been care­fully re­stored and en­hanced by con­tem­po­rary ren­o­va­tions, which fea­ture five bed­rooms and nu­mer­ous for­mal and in­for­mal liv­ing rooms.

Rick Eck­er­s­ley-de­signed gar­dens sur­round the home across the 2557sq m block.

James Tostevin, of Mar­shall White, is seek­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est un­til May 2.
