Based on what we’ve consistently encountered, Toorak living is practically synonymous with ultra-sophisticated pads flaunting glamorous finishes. And while 47 Lansell Road doesn’t come with a Thunderbirds-style car entrance or a subterranean garage complex reminiscent of Bruce Wayne’s Batcave, for that matter, what it does come with is effortlessly tasteful design… and a price guide ranging from $40 million to $44 million.
“It’s truly an international property,” says co-listing agent Michael Gibson of Kay & Burton.
“A collaboration of the very finest names from around the world has put this together.”
“It’s a standout house in the prestige market,” says co-agent Marcus Chiminello of Marshall White.
“It’s most special, without a shadow of a doubt.”
Last sold in an off-market deal valued at $20 million circa 2015, the sumptuous Melbourne residence has since undergone an extensive aesthetic overhaul, estimated to have set its owners back approximately $15 million; accomplished by the London-based Helen Green Design Studio, the award-winning Carr design group, as well as celebrated landscaper Paul Bangay. Suffice it to say, all parties involved got the job done.
Notable features of this “five-bedroom family sanctuary” with four bathrooms include the following:
- 3 x kitchen (regular, chef, commercial; full-equipped w/ Miele appliances + commercial grade-fridges + stone benches, etc.)
- indoor + outdoor space w/ teppanyaki grill
- formal dining space
- luxurious cinema room
- multiple living areas (incl. children’s lounge room)
- “outdoor liesure centre” w/ pool, pool house + gym, tennis court
- massage room
- 6-car garage
“COVID has unleashed a huge amount of money into residential living,” adds Gibson.
“I don’t think there would have been half a dozen people two years ago who would spend $40 million to $44 million on a house – but there are today.”
“We’ve never seen so many transactions occurring between $20 million and $40 million in such a short period of time,” says Chiminello.
“The demand in the prestige market is certainly going to outweigh the opportunities to purchase in it.”
