Walter Butler-designed estate in blue chip Toorak

Viewing strictly by appointment.

Magnificently positioned within gloriously landscaped gardens, 'Halstead' is a palatial European-style mansion set on a substantial 3286sqm (approx.) estate combining relaxed family living with sumptuous entertaining spaces, exclusively located on one of Toorak's grandest boulevards. Designed by the acclaimed Melbourne architect Walter Butler in the Arts and Crafts style, the expansive, five bedroom family sanctuary is rich in refined period grandeur and offers elegant, timeless interiors mixed with contemporary comforts to create an exquisite home that exceeds expectations.

Stepping into the circa 1916 home, a grand wooden-panelled entry hall welcomes. To the right, a formal lounge with feature fireplace and decorative ceiling is an elegant retreat enjoying views of the verdant front gardens through the majestic leadlight bay window. This wing of the ground floor also features an elegant formal dining room with another handsome leadlight window and a well-appointed study.
Moving though the house, a similarly-expansive, informal living area with feature fireplace and Crittall-style French doors which open up to the pool and surrounding courtyard, providing a tranquil space to sit or entertain on warmer evenings.

Keen chefs will love the well-appointed kitchen which pairs stone benchtops with stainless appliances and extensive Shaker-style cabinetry. A casual meals area also looks over the poolside terrace.
In the west wing, the tranquil master suite pairs a walk-in robe with an oversized ensuite complete with marble-topped double vanity and spa bath. Another spacious bedroom also benefits from a sparkling ensuite and views over the pool area.

Upstairs, three further bedrooms include one with an ensuite and walk-in robe while two at the rear have built-in robes and share a pristine family bathroom.
Other features of this magnificent mansion include an outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, a poolside shower room, elevated Italianate front verandah, rear lane access to a four car garage, mature rear gardens, a large cellar and extensive storage for sporting equipment.

Further appointments include stunning Tasmanian oak flooring, powder room, laundry, heating and cooling, bespoke cabinetry and statement chandeliers.
Situated in a prestigious position close to Toorak village, Heyington station and Toorak Road trams, this sublime family home is further enhanced by easy access to elite schools including St Catherine's, Scotch College and St Kevin's.
