Surround yourself with sophistication – 76 River Street, South Yarra



Just minutes from Chapel Street and a short tram ride into the CBD, 76 River Street, South Yarra ticks all the boxes—prestige location, architectural elegance, and all the modern touches to ensure year-round comfort and enjoyment.

From the quiet and verdant street in South Yarra, the home is a marvel of design, with a double-layered facade that comprises glazing, set behind louvres of timber and glass. The clever touches don’t stop there—inside, the architects have incorporated a central stair void in the design, which not only allows light to fill the lower levels, but also acts as a thermal chimney.

Agent Hugh Hardy, of Abercromby’s Armadale, says it’s easy to see why the design earned architects Jackson Clements Burrows the Multiple Residential Award at the 2006 RAIA Victorian Architecture Awards—it’s bursting with the intelligence and innovation which always defines their iconic properties.

The home boasts smart wiring, heated floors, home automation and cross-flow ventilation, as well as a state-of-the-art wine cellar in the garage. “It’s a really clever automated system, and it’s fully customisable,” says Hugh. “You can control the blinds and lights with the push of a button, and there’s a master switch by the door to turn all the lights off—no need to run up and down between the three floors!”

Ideal luxury family home with cash-flow potential

“The generous zoned living areas are fantastic for a family,” says Hugh, “as it’s a really modern interpretation of the traditional terrace house.”

Each of the four bedrooms is equipped with walk-in robe and ensuite, allowing each member of the family their own spacious private quarters.

“It would be ideal for a family with teenage kids, with the self-contained apartment and loft at the back,” Hugh adds. “It’s a great space—the ground floor was originally designed as a garage, but they’ve turned it into a little apartment. You could reinstate it to a garage easily, or keep it as a self-contained pad for teenagers or to or use for holiday rentals.”

In the spectacular kitchen, you’ll find stone bench tops, Miele appliances and an integrated wine fridge, while the dining area beside it has access to a private courtyard, ideal for indoor-outdoor entertaining in Melbourne’s infamous unpredictable climate!

A gorgeous water feature and barbeque plumbed into the mains make it the ideal spot to catch the sun with friends, while on the sunny terrace upstairs, a spa, sauna and outdoor shower add even more wow factor.

76 River Street, South Yarra is due to go under the hammer on Saturday, 25th November at 1pm, with a price guide of $3.3-3.63 million.
