In Melbourne few addresses can rival Park Street South Yarra. And few properties can match Askew House at 62 Park Street. Location. Space. Aspect. It has them all. A three-year painstaking renovation by interior designer Julie Johnson of Foxwood Design, has created a landmark residence that retains its architectural integrity while achieving the perfect balance of indoor luxury and outdoor comfort that is sure to appeal to the most discerning of buyers. Private and elevated with rear access and panoramic city views, Askew House is a complete wonderland where almost a century of history combines with ultimate contemporary style to create a unique family sanctuary. Period proportions, high ceilings, solid timber floors, including parquetry, and thoughtful spaces provide a harmonious flow from the living areas through to five generous bedrooms. Three levels, all linked by lift or staircase deliver flexible living spaces highlighted by luxurious finishes including marble and timber, the judicious use of colour, bespoke cabinetry and designer light fittings. The sitting room, formal dining room and a fully fitted study lead to the light-filled informal living and dining rooms arranged around the open-plan kitchen with marble benches, marble island and British-made Falcon stove with six burner gas cooktop. A butler's pantry was crafted from the home's original vault. The informal dining and living open to deck and private garden for effortless entertaining with the added luxury of a pool and spa. Three upstairs bedrooms, each with a marble ensuite, include the main bedroom with a lavish mirrored walk-in robe /dressing room and sublime ensuite. The top floor retreat opens to a terrace that captures the city views, while another large bedroom opens to a north-facing terrace. The ground floor boasts a cinema room, temperature- controlled wine room and four car garage with abundant storage. A self-contained apartment with marble kitchen and ensuite completes the accommodation at this thoroughly modern home which also includes a powder room, gas and wood burning fireplaces, marble -finished laundry with drying area, and high tech features with iPad touch to control lights, heating, cooling and remote access. Located between Fawkner Park and the Botanic Gardens, close to leading schools, Domain Road shops, cafes and restaurants, with Toorak Road and trams just moments from the front door, Askew House literally has advantages in every direction.
