Milford, Historic in Melbourne

894 Glenferrie Road, Kew VIC 3101

Description: “MILFORD has been a significant Melbourne residence since the 1890s – and remains so to this day. Impressive Italianate Victorian aesthetics and grand proportions that reflect the prosperity of the city’s golden age have been beautifully preserved and sensitively complemented by the seamless introduction of consummate modern comfort.

Majestic formal entertaining areas including an evocative reception room and a grand formal dining room currently furnished as a wonderful billiards room surround an inviting bar and bear the hallmarks of exceptional renovation. Modern counterparts, equally memorable, include a welcoming family living area, with surround sound, opening to a blue-stone paved backdrop around the gas heated swimming pool.
An elite quality kitchen featuring marble benches, stainless steel surfaces, dual walk-in pantries and 1500 bottle wine cellar overlooks a modern family dining domain with its own elegant terrace.

Five bedrooms, large study, three marble bathrooms with heated floors deliver desirable accommodation to a residence further distinguished by six open fire-places, hydronic heating, soaring ceilings and irreplaceable stained glass. John Patrick designed gardens, with automatic gates and ample off-street parking, surround MILFORD, crowned by a romantic tower from which the entire city can be surveyed.
Prestigious schools and the shopping precincts of Kew Junction and Glenferrie Road Hawthorn are all easily reached from this sanctuary of style, both period and present day.”
