Herald Sun - Property - - MARKET REPORT -

LATE in­te­rior de­signer Stu­art Rat­tle’s fi­nal pro­ject is on the mar­ket for $9 mil­lion-plus.

The renowned in­dus­try fig­ure mod­ernised the el­e­gant circa-1925, four-bed­room house at 42 Hey­ing­ton Rd, Toorak, in the years lead­ing up to his mur­der in De­cem­ber 2013.

Kay & Bur­ton, South Yarra, agent Gowan Stub­bings said the stately two-storey res­i­dence was some of the lead­ing de­signer’s “finest work.”

“This is a strik­ing look­ing home from the front and ... it’s been mod­ernised from yes­ter­year to the cur­rent day,” he said.

Cof­fered ceil­ings, Euro­pean oak floors, gar­den ac­cess and a lime­stone fire­place are fea­tures of the for­mal and in­for­mal liv­ing spa­ces. Mar­ble bench­tops, Ital­ian tap­ware, be­spoke cab­i­netry and a but­ler’s pantry are high­lights of the kitchen.

A Kay & Bur­ton ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est pri­vate sale cam­paign closes Novem­ber 28 at 5pm.
