Built in the tradition of palatial European architecture comes this remarkable villa and its breathtaking dimensions, craftsmanship and drama.

The 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 4-car garage manse is located on 1979sqm of land in Melbourne’s sought-after suburb of Kew.

Here, the magnificent pile is finished with the finest imported details elevating the home to a new level of luxury.

Stepping inside the home one is immediately awestruck by the cathedral scale of the reception hall and its black and white marble floors, hand-crafted plasterwork and soaring skylit dome.

French silk wall coverings and oak parquetry floors distinguish the formal dining room – complete with a marble gas fire – while the refined executive office and fitted library feature bespoke timber panelling.

Often the centrepiece of the home, the kitchen is an entertainer’s dream featuring swathes of Calacatta marble, stainless steel work island, Ilve ovens, integrated Liebherr fridge/freezer, and a butler’s pantry with integrated Miele coffee machine at one’s disposal.

Here, bi-fold doors open the living area to an expansive undercover alfresco entertaining terrace with a barbecue kitchen, pizza oven, heaters and all-weather screens for use all year round.

It’s an opportunity to soak in the beauty of the Paul Bangay designed gardens, replete with a stunning water feature.

In the opposite wing and also leading out to the garden is a gas-heated indoor pool and spa with sauna, steam room, bathroom and gym.

A staircase leads to the main bedroom suite complete with an opulent dressing room and marble adorned ensuite.

Two additional bedrooms with walk-in robes, desks and stylish ensuites are further accompanied by two bedrooms with built-in robes and a shared bathroom.

Elsewhere, the fully fitted home theatre boasts French silk wall coverings and is complemented by the full-sized billiards room served by a bar-room complete with a wine fridge for entertaining. The basement also sees a cellar.

The home presents a heady amalgamation of old-world European charm, with grand fixtures such as Venetian chandeliers paired with CCTV, video intercom, C-bus lighting, zoned heating and more.

The listing is with Marshall White Stonnington’s Nicole French (+61 417 571 505) and has a price guide of $17 – 18.5 million; marshallwhite.com
