Harleston Firs, Circa 1905

Manning Road's tree lined boulevard is the ideal backdrop for Harleston Firs, an illustrious mansion notable for its distinctive Victorian, Edwardian and Art Nouveau architectural features and beautiful garden setting with a swimming pool and pool house set on 1410 sqm approx. with a second frontage to Turner Street.
Stately, elegant and majestic, the interiors have been painstakingly restored to their original beauty and honoured with a seamless architect designed extension in 2004 to create a residence that is both grand and family friendly.
Distinctive period features unite the home from the tallest of ceilings soaring to four metres downstairs with elaborate cornice work to beautiful stained glass windows, superb hand carved timber staircases, marble fireplace mantles, antique light fittings and the distinctive features of a tessellated tiled conservatory leading off the grand reception rooms and a turret with light towers above the rear staircase.
The exceptional scale of the floorplan allows for multiple living and entertaining zones including expansive family room and separate informal dining room all of which are perfectly complemented by a well appointed granite kitchen with comprehensive cabinetry, Miele oven and integrated dishwasher.
Upstairs, five luxuriously large fitted bedrooms include the palatial main bedroom with private balcony and en suite, second en suited bedroom with balcony and grand main spa bathroom. A voluminous rumpus room or home theatre features vaulted timber ceilings with exposed trusses.
The beautiful grounds are wed together with expanses of herringbone paving that lead through to the broad terraces surrounding the 16.5 metre mosaic tiled gas heated swimming pool. A built-in BBQ with gas supply and pool house with kitchenette and additional bathroom sit beautifully within the entertaining space.
Harleston Firs has been showcased in the Period Home Renovator and The Australian Design Series.
Despite its heritage, the home is comprehensively appointed for modern, family living with a refined study off the foyer, huge modern walk-in cellar, hydronic heating, air conditioning, extensive security with CCTV and monitored alarm, home automation, Commander phone system, Foxtel, wireless internet, two powder rooms, remote gates to off street parking and additional remote gates on Turner Street leading to a four car remote garage.
Harleston Firs is a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure a landmark property in this coveted family neighbourhood close to Central Park, Hedgeley Dene gardens, Malvern and Lloyd Street Primary Schools and leading independent schools, trams, Caulfield Station, Monash University and Chadstone Shopping Centre.
