Like many Melbournians, I've driven past this residence
on St Kilda Road many times wondering what it's like inside,
well now I know - it's exquisite!

It stands out like dog's balls because
it is a beautiful old stately home,
right smack in the middle of our business district,
surrounded by tall glass buildings, trams,
buses, business people walking to work - everywhere!

But it sure is beautiful.

The epitome of a beautiful heritage home entry.

These two rooms (above & below) look the same at first,
then take a closer look, tricky aye!

I think this is my favorite room, the study.

The artwork in this home is amazing,
and I've no doubt it is all original, exy, art!

Betcha weren't expecting the kitchen to look like this!
Just divine!

I'm not usually a fan of poster beds,
but this one is gorgeous, and makes the room stunning.

And if you want to see another gorgeous home,
owned by PM Bruce's father on My Pear Tree House blog,
go here and check it out -
Obviously a bloody wealthy family that lot!

And there's the hustle n bustle of St Kilda Road just over the balcony!

AND Here's what the Agent said about it!
