‘Meticulously restored’ Glen Iris home sold for townhouses

The 1795 Malvern Road was described as “meticulously restored” for a 2014 marketing campaign.

Two neighbouring Glen Iris homes have sold to a townhouse developer.

Covering 1815 square metres, 1795-1797 Malvern Road traded for $5.315 million.

The vendor offered the amalgamation with a planning scheme for a Bruce Henderson project.

Four former standalone homes north of it (1781-1793 Malvern Rd) were in 2017 razed for two townhouse complexes – each with three floors over a basement car park.

The 1795 Malvern Rd property, a Spanish Mission, was promoted as “meticulously restored” when it sold for nearly $2m as a prestige house in 2014 (story continues below).

Jones Real Estate’s Sam Guest and GrayJohnson’s Matt Hoath marketed that dwelling and 1797, this time around.

The upper storeys of any redevelopment would offer aspect over the Monash Freeway to Gardiners Creek, the agents said.

Between High Street and Wattletree Rd, the address is walking distance to the Glen Iris train station.

This part of the suburb is about 10 kilometres south east of Melbourne.
