Sub­urb block­buster

Herald Sun - Property - - NEWS -

MOON­LIGHT Cinema founder turned de­vel­oper James Tut­ton is sell­ing his re­mark­able Coburg home, with price hopes that would set a new sub­urb record. Tut­ton en­gaged Clare Cousins Ar­chi­tects to fully ren­o­vate the tow­ered Vic­to­rian “man­sionette” at 23 The Grove, named Koorali, after buying the prop­erty for a thenCoburg record price of $2.2 mil­lion in Au­gust 2015. No. 35 The Grove broke that bench­mark in April, fetch­ing $2.5 mil­lion. No. 23 will seek to take it back with a $3-$3.3 mil­lion price guide quoted as part of an ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est cam­paign, clos­ing Septem­ber 20.

Jel­lis Craig, Bruns­wick, di­rec­tor Rob El­som — who’ has listed the prop­erty in conjunction with Kay & Bur­ton’s Da­mon Kron­gold — said the “su­perb ren­o­va­tion” had breathed con­tem­po­rary life into the 1887 house.

It in­volved re­tain­ing pe­riod fea­tures, such as mar­ble fire­places, and adding mod­ern lux­u­ries like mar­ble and tiled bath­rooms, out­door decks, walk-in wardrobes, a pool and fire pit.
