Toorak, Victoria, Australia
“Tarcoola” on Toorak’s prized Edzell Avenue is a rare and special residential proposition of 2,000sqm (approximately). Set on a scenic bend of the Yarra River, with a private jetty, pontoon, boat shed, and picturesque picnic area - All overlooked by an agelessly cool deco style residence in one of the finest streets in one of the finest suburbs in one of the finest cities in the world. An almost peerless mix of position, provenance, and potential that presents as a most tantalizing prospect for the future. And all underpinned by the knowledge that no matter what happens next, this always has and always will be one of the best private homesites in Melbourne.
In recent years, Edzell Avenue has begun hosting some of the most spectacular new builds in Toorak, as buyers from around the world look to secure their future on one of the closest riverside blocks to the CBD.
Set on the right side of an avenue renowned as one of Toorak’s blue-chip havens, Number Seven’s appealing but understated façade gives little hint of the significance of the property that lies beyond. But once you step through the front doors the view very quickly changes, as this outstanding home and land unfurl around you.
The five-bedroom residence is a timeless treasure. Built in the 1930s, it is a classic deco meshing of lines, curves and space and light, with many of its fascinating original fixtures and fittings still evident throughout. It spans two expansive levels that, under the timeless design eye of its current owners, evokes the lush and languid feel of the Hollywood Hills.
Upstairs is the principal living area, with a sweep of large and flowing living, entertaining, and workspaces that drink in the scenic surrounds via large windows and a long, wide balcony. The nicely equipped main bedroom suite is on this floor as well, as well as the large, light-filled kitchen.
Downstairs is almost a second residence of its own, with a superb array of living and entertaining rooms accompanied by four spacious bedrooms – the highlight being a large, well-equipped bar that gives the floors a playful, club-like feel. There are four good-sized bedrooms, making this an excellent option as a stand-alone apartment for children, extended family, and guests.
