Designed by Rob Mills, the architecture is a throwback to a European mood of elegance four centuries.

Highlights include a mansard slate roof and the use of French Oak, cast iron and Venetian plaster features throughout.

Greeting new visitors is a grand entrance hall, with double height ceilings and an enormous curved stairwell.

Other features include French doors draped in ivy that lead onto a private garden, duct heating, essential for the chilly Melbourne winters.

Meanwhile, the main suite comes with its own private balcony and covers the full width of the upper floor, and comes with its own ensuite and underfloor heating.
