664-666 Riversdale Road, camberwell
Historically significant architectural opportunity
Presented on a substantial 2008 sqm block (approx.) with a blue chip address in one of Melbourne’s most elite postcodes, lies the former home of prominent architect Robin Boyd. A glorious masterpiece, circa 1947, this home represents some of his earliest work, defining Melbourne’s architectural landscape. Over the years, the property has changed hands and has undergone some improvements including a second storey extension. Currently vacated and requiring considerable restoration work, its value and appeal remains fervently strong. Historically significant and a real estate rarity, opportunities like this seldom come on the market.
Wide stretching, the property sprawls across Camberwell’s renowned Riversdale Road, unashamedly boasting evergreen views of Riversdale Park. Desirably zoned and within walking distance of Camberwell High School along with several exclusive schools including Siena College and Strathcona Girls Grammar School. An effortless lifestyle awaits with leisurely strolls to Riversdale Station, trams, cafes and eateries, Coles and Woolworths. Enjoy the retail, dining and entertaining delights of nearby Camberwell Shopping Precinct and spend weekends browsing the boutique offerings of The Mailing Road strip.
A treasured procurement for renovating enthusiasts and admirers of Robin Boyd keen to restore this landmark residence. Given its prime positioning and unmaintained state developers and investors should take interest in further improvements to the land subject to the approval of the relevant authorities.
We donate a portion of our fee from every property transaction to the Woodards Foundation to support people experiencing homelessness, family violence and social isolation.
