Captivating "Kyoto", 1915 grand Federation Style house on huge land holding of 2073 sqm approx, a rarity in itself

Captivating "Kyoto", 1915 grand Federation style house with superb frontage of 25.9 m approx on huge land holding of 2073 sqm approx, is a rarity with a rich history.

2073 sqm was enough for a young cricket lover learning the game – he went on to play with Bradman in the Bodyline series. His father, also a sportsman, took to practicing lawn bowls in the backyard while helping to establish the local bowling club.

2073 sqm was also enough for the next owner, a doctor who established a shiraz and chardonnay vineyard in the backyard beside the lawn tennis court.

The next custodian, the current owner, has cultivated a garden sensitive to the needs of the local native birds and insects – a picking flower garden enhancing the character of this unique period house.

Designed by prominent architect J H Laity c1915, 'Kyoto' was constructed with quality at its core. From the impressive stonework to the stunning coffered timber ceilings, original woodwork, leadlights and beaten brass hardware, the originality and honesty of this generous home is captivating.

Original open fires, easily accessible cellar, a walk-in pantry and private view of the Adelaide Hills are testament to the thought that has gone into construction.

The residence is currently disposed as elegant entrance hall, sitting room, adjoining living room and separate dining room, all of beautiful proportions, large main bedroom with lovely garden outlook, 2 roomed teenager's retreat, 3rd bedroom, kitchen and adjacent meals plus sunroom and studio at the rear.

In this outstanding location, within easy reach of a range of excellent schools, 142 Grant Ave is a diamond in the 'Golden Mile' of Toorak Gardens. Prized properties of this calibre are rarely offered and highly admired. 'Kyoto' will capture the heart and imagination of a fortunate new custodian.
