A Stunning Victorian in the Heart of Geelong

This bespoke property of Victorian eclectic style, epitomises the true definition of a ‘town residence’. Defined by its position and grand architecture, the home lies on the periphery of Geelong’s central business district, having secured a commanding outlook to the North, encapsulating Corio Bay and the You Yangs, since it was built in 1877.

Designed by prolific architects of the day, Davidson and Henderson, the home has assumed a number of different guises throughout the years and was originally commissioned as a private residence and surgery for Dr. George Glendinning. Today the home has been lovingly renovated and improved, paying homage to its original splendour and incorporating a very functional double storey design.

As soon as the front door closes behind you it’s hard not to be overawed by the grand cowrie staircase and beautiful formal rooms, as well as the stunning character detail and quality. After further inspection a careful balance of old and new becomes apparent and so does the versatility of some 14 rooms. Comprising:

• Formal dining room with grand marble fireplace
• Separate drawing or ‘cognac’ room
• Informal sitting room or ‘snug’
