Top price in Toorak

Blair House, 17 St George’s Road, Toorak; a nice but not exceptional 1936 Georgian Revival design by Hughes & Orme (never heard of them I admit). Recently sold for the second highest price in Melb, $75 mill. Beautiful large gardens. It’s protected by a Heritage Overlay, so should be with us a while yet. Photos

Update 10 December

The purchaser is Grant Rule, who made $1.3bill selling his SMS marketing company last year. The previous owners were the Nanut family who owned it for a few decades I think.
