Old and new come together at this centurion with a timeless renovation.
Named Clutha, the expansive home at 7 Normanby Street, Brighton, is believed to originally date back to the 1900s.
The six-bedroom mansion steeped in tradition and luxury is priced at a negotiable $10m.
Nick Johnstone director Nick Johnstone labelled the home “one of the finest Victorians” he had come across.
“It’s impeccably renovated,” he said.
“It feels like a country estate when you step inside.”
The two-storey floorplan spans 1019sq m.
He said the home was recently renovated by the current owners, maintaining the home’s striking period flourishes including soaring ceilings, an arched hallway, leadlighting and marble-framed fireplaces.
Elaborate ceiling roses, Baltic pine flooring and chandeliers are other heritage features.
“They seamlessly blended the old and new,” Mr Johnstone said.
An updated kitchen with a butler’s pantry, a new marble and terrazzo ensuite with a walk-in rainfall shower, and underfloor heating are just some of the home’s luxury finishes.
“It’s also on one of Brighton’s finest streets, just a few doors down from the beach, Church Street and has a lovely northern orientation. The position is superb,” Mr Johnstone said.
He also noted its exclusive privacy, garden hedging and manicured backyard, designed by Eckersley Garden Architecture.
A romantic courtyard setting with French doors, a glass-roofed alfresco area, and a heated swimming pool complete the grand home.
Mr Johnstone said the property already had interest from a number of established local families and expats who were moving back to Victoria after COVID.
The property is for private sale.
