Ray White Mill Park’s Luke Doerre said the home was one of the largest in the suburb with a character all its own.
“It’s a real standout in the area and displays a timeless appeal and build quality that is rare in today’s market,” he said.
“There is really nothing else like it in Mill Park.”
Mr Doerre said the custom designed house had attracted interest from across Melbourne, including Fawkner, Diamond Creek and Carlton.
“More than 20 groups have already visited the home,” he said.
Top quality fittings adorn the house, on the market for the first time in nearly 30 years.
The clinker-brick house in the coveted Blossom Park estate showcases a high-pitched roofline, dormer windows and an amazing tower.
Light floods in through double-glazed windows to illuminate vast free-flowing living spaces adorned with rich timber floors.

Luxurious timber cabinets equip the kitchen.
The top floor is a dedicated viewing platform to take vistas across the neighbourhood towards the city and the Kinglake and Dandenong Ranges.
