JB Hi Fi chief lists Toorak’s landmark Glyn

Glyn occupies a 2420 square metre block also with a tennis court and pool.

JB Hi Fi chief executive officer Richard Murray and his partner, Jacqueline Blackwell, have listed Toorak Arts & Crafts movement mansion Glyn with a $14-$15.4 million price guide.

The pair picked up the property from lawyer Andrew Fairley and corporate adviser, Jane Stuchberry, in late 2016 – outlaying $11m.

The 2420 square metre holding with a tennis court, pool, triple garage, basement storage and cellar has previously been held by recruiter Lorraine Tribe, Joe and Zita Gersh and Mark and Shari Read.

Over three levels, it includes six bedrooms, all with an ensuite, and multiple living and dining areas.

A mid-level wing is configured with three studies, games room, gym and retreat.

The double-storey entrance foyer (pictured, right) contains timber ceiling beams, floors, staircase, fireplace and walls, and several leadlight windows (story continues below).

Glyn was penned in 1908 by Rodney Alsop for BHP founding shareholder Sir Edward Miller.

Mr Murray and Ms Blackwell have further renovated what was a fully restored home when they bought it.

Marshall White’s Marcus Chiminello and Nicole French are closing an expressions of interest campaign for 224 Kooyong Road, Toorak, next month.
