Set behind a high imposing fence sits a grand victorian mansion of epic proportions offering you historical significance, exquisite décor, extensive gardens and your own private heated swimming pool. This home is ideal for families that appreciate luxury and privacy. When you can drag yourself away from your luxurious accommodation, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to places to visit, whether you want to head into the CBD to make the most of bustling city life or head to the beach to enjoy some watersports.
This incredible meticulous renovation of one of Hawthorn's grandest mansions set this home apart from others and is believed to have been built in 1851. With a sense of historical wonder as soon as you set eyes on the imposing Victorian mansion, you’ll know straight away this is going to be a holiday of a lifetime. Before you reach the mustard yellow front door, take a moment to admire the incredible mosaic that forms part of the front veranda, before you step inside to see what awaits you in your rental home.
Once inside, head to the formal living area that could be a ballroom where the spotlighted ceiling casts light perfectly throughout the room, all striking blues and touchable fabrics. Here you can spend enchanted evenings in front of the fireplace, perhaps playing a few notes on the piano that sits in the corner, and when morning comes fling open the heavy curtains to bring in the sunlight.
Less formal is the open plan living dining space where you’ll settle back on the long sofa that’s squeezed snugly between two bookshelves – plenty of reading material to choose from before you even get to dedicated library which even has its own library ladder, just what childhood dreams are made of for bookworms From here you can head out to the terrace with outdoor dining area and BBQ, and enjoy an outdoor dining experience on a flagstone terrace with climbing plants at every corner of the terrace’s roof, with a view of your private swimming pool.
When night draws near choose between the five luxury bedrooms, two ensuite on the ground floor and three on the first floor – two of which share an ensuite while the master boasts its own ensuite and huge walk in robe and have access to the huge wrap around veranda.
Malling Grove is located a mere 4 minute walk from Hawthorn Station, and just 5 minutes from the nearest tram stop. Hawthorn offers the best of everything the city and surrounding areas has to offer. Located less than half an hour from the beach, the CBD and several golf courses, a variety of activities for all tastes are within easy reach. Whether your holiday preference is sun-worshipping, shopping till you drop, or playing a few holes, you’re perfectly situated here. Locally, Glenferrie and Burwood Roads are both meccas for coffee lovers and foodies alike.
