Whilst a four-bedroom mansion in Brunswick won’t appear bizarre, this freestanding Victorian is popping heads available on the market on account of its 15 hidden bedrooms on the rear.
683 Park St, referred to as Elm Grove, has an enormous 6m-$6.5m value information.
The ancient house is brimming with length main points equivalent to vaulted rosette ceilings, open fireplace puts, sky lighting fixtures and a rest room with a claw foot bath.
Forged iron veranda posts sit down along bluestone steps resulting in the doorway.
And on the rear, 15 mysterious bedrooms will also be discovered, accessed by means of a courtyard — which aren’t discussed within the preliminary record, and described within the description as ‘hidden’.
Walshe & Whitelock agent Peter Sowersby declined to remark at the house, however the Usher in Solar understands that the valuables used to be both constructed or prolonged in 1886 via former Melbourne Town Councilor, William Robust.
In keeping with Moreland Town Council information, the pad used to be firstly described as a six-bedroom brick house with stables, sooner than its 1886 description as a ten-bedroom place of abode.
In 1937, an editorial in The Age said that the valuables had a “manufacturing facility on the rear” of the “double-fronted brick-cement place of abode.”
The present record’s floorplan displays a mess of small bedrooms in the back of the valuables, supposedly transformed from earlier lives as stables or a manufacturing facility.
It used to be remaining offered in 1987 for $400,000, in step with CoreLogic.
