Toorak mansion has spectacular extension on edge of Yarra River

Traditional charm and contemporary design blend seamlessly together at this impressive home in a prestigious Toorak cul-de-sac.

The three-bedroom wonder at 797 Orrong Rd is set among some of Melbourne’s best houses in an extension of the well-known main road.

An impressive modern twist has been added to the classic brick property, which is for sale with a $6.95-$7.645 million price guide.


The huge home is in a prestigious pocket.


Modern design blends perfectly with the grand clinker brick.

Its elevated position and vast walls of glass bring abundant natural light into the renovated property. It boasts panoramic views of the Yarra River, which is just metres from the front door.

Abercromby’s Armadale director Sam Goddard said the grand clinker brick was transformed before the vendor bought it in 2015.


A north-facing pool soaks in the sun.

“One of its highlights has to be the northern vistas and how it encapsulates the view,” Mr Goddard said.

“The front living room is the most beautiful sitting area that looks over the Yarra.”

Bold pendant lights in the living and dining room, parquetry floorboards and a translucent marble wall in the entrance foyer are stylish features.
