  • Situated metres from Albert Park Village, "Lorimer" redefines prestige. Set on 830sqm (approx.) this landmark Victorian residence, in a prominent corner position is steeped in history, having formerly served as a maternity hospital in the early 20th century. It showcases exquisite period features: ornate ceilings, light roses, cornices and arches, as well as original marble fireplaces and stained glass.

    Dual entries lead to a grand entry hall and wide hallway, from which a selection of living and accommodation areas can be found, including a gorgeous formal lounge with an striking original fireplace and bay windows overlooking the garden.

    The modern extension emphasizes stunning open-plan living and dining with an open fireplace, lending designer style to the Victorian pedigree, and leads out to a delightful private garden with bluestone-paved entertaining areas complete with strip heating. Set for lavish entertaining, the gourmet kitchen is made for a chef, with stainless steel countertops, abundant soft-close cabinetry, butler's pantry and a centrepiece 1200mm Wolf freestanding gas cooker.

    The spacious accommodations include a master bedroom with walk-in robe and an ensuite with walk-in rain shower and marble vanity. Two more bedrooms with walk in robes, a fourth bedroom/front lounge, and a well-placed fifth bedroom with built-in robes and independent entry to the side courtyard - excellent potential as a home office. Relax in the indulgent family bathroom with freestanding tub and separate rain shower.

    Further advantages include ducted heating and cooling, laundry and powder room, intercom security, and a double remote garage via Gray Lane as well as a single garage facing Merton Street. The outstanding location places you a stroll from Albert Park Village and trams, and an easy walk to the beach, Albert Park Lake, St Vincent Gardens, MSAC, and South Melbourne Markets. Within the sought-after Albert Park College zone.
