East Melbourne house comes with huge artwork too big to move

The massive painting on the left will be staying put.


An East Melbourne original is on the market for an avid collector.

And the architect-owned house at 63 George Street isn’t the only piece on offer.

The three-bedroom house, on the market with price expectations of $2-$2.2m, features a purposely commissioned artwork over 4m tall that is too tall to be moved.

No. 63 George Street is in an enviable East Melbourne location.


A welcome sight to come home to.


“That will be a good present for the buyer,” joked Bekdon Richards Hawthorn associate Mark Kainey.

Artworks by various Australian artists line the walls of the hallway, entertaining spaces and bedrooms.

The two-storey home, owned by an avid art collector for the past four decades, is over 100 years old.

Can you guess which painting is too big to move?


A skylight ensures the kitchen stays warm and inviting.


More artworks, convenient book shelves and a Juliette balcony.


“It’s one of the original buildings of East Melbourne,” Mr Kainey said.

“There are so few homes in the area, and these properties are very tightly held.”

A private rooftop terrace sits alongside the main bedroom, linked to the lower level via a spiral staircase.

“What impressed me the most is the indoor-outdoor lifestyle,” Mr Kainey said.

An upstairs deck has been transformed into succulent central.


The deck has outlook over East Melbourne.


Timber ceilings are on display throughout the home.


The home hasn’t changed hands in four decades.


“The upstairs deck overlooks East Melbourne and is something to behold. It’s a great, quiet oasis.”

There’s also a spacious upstairs study with a Juliette balcony and timber ceiling panels.
