Record-breaking six bedroom estate in Melbourne for sale

A luxurious block of properties comprising six separate homes with 24 bedrooms in total is on sale for a record $45million.

The 4697sqm estate is tucked away in Toorak, one of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs, and was developed by former BP boss James Stafford-Fox and his wife Moyna.

The fully-equipped homes include a lap pool in one, and a ‘reflection’ pond in the other – and as a collective estate it is poised to break the existing record of $40 million in Victoria.

It is currently owned and occupied by the affluent Roche family, and  the main estate ‘Windarring’  can be expanded and modernised.

Five of the six homes are located on Evans Court, while the last – and biggest – sits on Glyndelbourne Avenue and dates back to 1920.

The first home is a three-storey, four bedroom family residence with an elevator and a landscaped garden with a reflection pond.

Next to it is a 1970s property with three bedrooms, four bathrooms and a separate studio apartment. The neighbouring house features a similar design but with a lap pool in the backyard.

The last two homes on Evans Court are three-bedroom and four-bedroom properties respectively with ‘flawless’ ensuite bathrooms attached to each. 

The ‘Windarring’ four-storey residence has five bedrooms and a six-car basement garage with a lift and a north facing pool.

Jock Langley, of property agency Abercromby’s, said the estate was ‘a genuine legacy.’ 

‘This property sits in an entirely different category in terms of prestige, position, privacy and potential,’ Mr Langley told The Real Estate Conversation.

‘Whoever purchases this estate will be securing both a piece of Toorak’s history and an almost unrivalled asset to hold into the future.’

Late philanthropist Mr Stafford-Fox amassed the six properties over two decades and it was sold in 2013 to the Roche family with all proceeds donated to fund dementia research.

It is listed on real estate sites between $45million and $50million and, if sold at that price, it is set to be the highest ever paid for a residential property in Victoria.

The record of $40million was set in 2017 a foreign buyer splashed out on a mansion in the same rich enclave of Toorak.
