This Ultra Luxurious Ascot Vale Family Home Is For Sale

On The Market

Behind a compact Victorian facade on a leafy street lies one of Ascot Vale’s most luxurious properties, and it’s currently for sale!

The current owners transformed this heritage home into the impressive residence it is today, introducing an extension with all the trimmings by Mitsuori Architects. 

With five bedrooms, a pool, gym/theatre room, and basement parking for eight vehicles (!) and more, this is one epic home!

‘We love the way the light bounces off of all of the different raw materials and changes the mood of the house.’ 

When the current owners purchased this Ascot Vale property in 2012, the house was absolutely brimming with potential. They’ve since created a dream family home, which will soon change hands for the first time since renovating!

The compact but classic Victorian facade and front rooms remain, followed by a stunning three-storey extension designed by Mitsuori Architects. This addition has been carefully planned to not only enlarge the home, but enrich the everyday living experience through enhanced natural light and views to outdoors.

‘It was really important to us to create a sense of bringing the outside in and to see greenery whenever we looked out the windows. We didn’t want to feel like we were blocked in, while still remaining very private and secure within our own sanctuary,’ say the current owners, Luke and Kendall Crozier. ‘Perhaps our favourite aspect of the home now are the expansive voids and skylights throughout the home that bring in so much of the natural light we love.’ 

The couple worked with ACS Builders to select materials such as burnished brass, timber, exposed brick, concrete, and bluestone reflective of nature. ‘We love the way the light bounces off of all of the different raw materials and changes the mood of the house,’ says Luke and Kendall. ‘Especially beautiful is how the burnished brass appears to glow at certain times of day.’

Also integrated is the expertise of building biologist Narelle McDonald of Wellness at Home to create a more healthy home with improved air and water quality, and low VOC materials.

The outdoor areas are just as impressive as those inside, including a balcony retreat off the main bedroom (which has its own luxe en suite and walk-in wardrobe). North-facing doors off the ground floor living area open to the outdoor entertaining, comprising a built-in barbecue followed by the heated pool. 

At 370 square-metres, the basement level containing gym/theatre room and eight car garage (with a turntable and lift) is also worth its own mention!  

The entire property contains five-bedrooms and three bathrooms, and covers a generous 633 square metre corner block. Other luxury features include keyless entry, a butler’s pantry, office, hydronic heating, laundry chute, motorised blinds… the list goes on! 

26 The Parade, Ascot Vale is being sold by Jerome Feery and Simon Mason at Jellis Craig via expressions of interest. For more information, see the full listing.
