We’re well aware of the logical fallacy that plagues BH’s On The Market editorial series. After all… how can every property we spotlight week after week be the most spectacular, most exclusive, and most sophisticated instance of real estate in Australia? Regardless, we think you’ll have zero issues with our decision to include 62B Hopetoun Road in Toorak.
Situated on close to 1,800 square metres of elevated, northwestern-facing land, the highlight of this palatial, five-bedroom + six-bathroom Stephen Akehurst property is, without a doubt, what lies beneath the home itself. Journey below the ground floor and you’ll come face to face with a stunning arched Italian, brick temperature-controlled 900 bottle wine cellar – complete with a built-in bar, a place to kick your feet up and sample the finer stuff, two grand fireplaces, plus underfloor heating. But that isn’t to say what can be found above ground is lacking by any means…
“Step inside and you are overwhelmed with the generosity of the space over custom oak floors. The kitchen has been custom designed for family and large scale entertaining with energy conservation in mind boasting a 7.8-star energy rating and Control4 smart home automation,” reads the listing.
“There’s beauty and functionality in numbers with three dishwashers, three ovens (including a French-built Lacanche), English Tapware Co finishes an integrated Miele fridge and freezer, with hand-painted all Blum soft-close cabinetry and illuminating Cromwell lighting. The vast butler’s pantry includes a drying cabinet and laundry chute, too.”
Other notable features of 62B Hopetoun Road, Toorak include the following:
- Drop-down TV & fully-automated AV system
- Cardosa Stone-floored ensuite w/ his & her walk-in robes, underfloor heating
