This location was built in 1847 and is an intriguing mix of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture. Immerse yourself in the history and luxury that make this location Melbourne’s most glamorous stately home. It offers a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of former owners, the Armytage family, who lived there for nearly a century. The Armytages became famous amongst Melbourne high society and equally famous for their many elegant dances, dinners and receptions. Those elegant dining and reception rooms are still furnished with Armytage family heirlooms and even the servant’s areas, kitchen and laundry have been preserved.
