Sitting on a corner lot amongst some of Melbourne’s most distinguished homes, this five-bedroom residence is the result of a collaboration between Christopher Doyle and Royale Construction. A Mount Gambier limestone facade sets the stage for the remarkable quality of material and design that runs throughout the home.

Detailing like wainscotting, crown molding and elaborately carved fireplaces adorn thoughtfully designed rooms, adding elegance without any touch of garishness. Shining above the dining room is a Swarovski crystal chandelier. The kitchen boasts stone benches, top-of-the-line appliances and a butler’s pantry.

Covering three stories, the second and lower floors are accessed by a tasteful spiral staircase. All bedrooms feature their own bathrooms and walk-in closets including a primary suite whose stone-laden bath evokes images of a hammam. Below ground on the opposite end of the home, highlights include a vaulted cellar, bar and a sleek six-car garage.

French doors lead to lavender-scented terraces, a stylish swimming pool and manicured grounds found in the spacious back of the property.
