THIS landmark Gothic Revival residence is a home of impressive proportions in more ways than one — boasting four levels, seven bedrooms, soaring ceilings and the largest single residential landholding in East Melbourne. The 1886 home, named
Shrewsbury House, is set on 1090sq m and is drenched in the splendour of a bygone era. An imposing entrance hall flows into an elegant sitting room, with two open fireplaces, and a separate formal dining room. A casual meals area featuring a gourmet kitchen with Gaggenau and Miele appliances and stone benches completes the ground floor. Below is a basement area with more living rooms, a guest bedroom and wine cellar, while the top floors feature the rest of the bedrooms, including the main with an ensuite.
