‘Foxy’ Kath & Kim star and co-creator Jane Turner has listed her stunning Elwood mansion ‘Tiuna’ (c1884) with a price guide of $7.3 to $8M.
The sprawling bayside home is quite a different offering to Kath Day-Knight’s home in fictional Fountain Gates, boasting five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a library, pool and formal dining spaces.
Director of Fredman Property Group, Joel Fredman, said upon entry most are immediately struck by the impressive veranda, grand Victorian facade and sweeping gardens.
“The grand landscaping makes you feel like you are walking into a very private estate, almost like stepping back in time,” he said.
“This home features a lot of historical value and points of interest – little steps coming off the house, the way the doors are set up – it takes your breath away.”
“We have had quite a few private viewings during the first week already. It is really hitting that market of families who want a grand, period home.”
The future home-owners can enjoy a glass of ‘cardonnay’ as they wander through the award-winning extension by renowned architects Jackson Clements Burrows, which encompasses a casual entertaining zone and European-equipped kitchen that has been lined with warm timber to create an inviting ambiance for relaxed get-togethers. Towering bi-folds to alfresco decks at either end seamlessly connect indoors with nature.
“The sheer grandeur and the volume of original period features including the fireplaces and high ceilings all offer great appeal,” Mr Fredman said.
“There is a lot of space that you don’t normally find in Elwood.”
Top it all off with multiple living spaces combining modern luxuries with classic charm include fireplaces and timber flooring, and this home remains one of the last grand mansions located in Elwood.
