A Rare East Melbourne Gem
A Rare East Melbourne Gem
Nestled within the exclusive enclave of Jolimont at premiere eastern fringe of the Melbourne CBD, is the mansion style residence ‘Eblana’. This striking property is quintessential East Melbourne, a building of grand proportions constructed for Thomas Jackson, most widely known by the Young and Jackson’s hotel frame in 1883, occupying an approx. 510sqm allotment with dual street frontage.
With exceptional street presence, ascending the entry stairway invokes the ambience of a New York brownstone or London townhouse, blending proximity to the heart of the city with timeless residential ambience. Retaining abundant period character and features, the building boasts expansive ceilings and room proportions across the original structure, allowing the visionary mind to re-create a truly remarkable residence or development scenario (STCA).
If the true test of luxury is the scarcity of an opportunity and its difficulty in replication, this is a gem waiting for discovery.
Encompassing a total footprint of approx. 510sqm, the property enjoys primary frontage to Jolimont Road and secondary full-width access to Jolimont Lane providing secure and discrete vehicle access. An updating of the existing accommodation would yield a beautiful residence with great flexibility, whilst a more substantial re-creation gives rise to a grand residence with heritage and ultra-contemporary aspects and opportunities, including the maximisation of the internal courtyard and private garaging. Alternatively, the property is suited to flexible development opportunities (STCA).
Steeped in history the city’s east end precinct affords unequalled high-end residential amenity. This is the pre-eminent CBD fringe address, a conduit between the vibrant heart of the central city and Melbourne’s prestigious inner eastern suburbs, surrounded by renowned gardens and Melbourne’s sporting icons, where residents can escape the core of the city but still enjoy the very best of its renowned retail, restaurant, entertainment, and cultural amenity. The residential ambience is reminiscent of the atmospheres afforded by the celebrated street addresses and adjoining parkland precincts of Knightsbridge to Hyde Park in London, Elizabeth and Liverpool Streets to Hyde Park in Sydney, and Central Park East, West and South to Central Park in New York.
