Engleharts list one of two Monomeath Ave homes

The founder and managing director of Englehart Homes, Ron Englehart, and his wife Fran, are selling one of their two family homes in Canterbury’s exclusive Monomeath Avenue.

The pair can expect $5.25m-$5.75 million from #13.

Between Mont Albert and Canterbury roads, the tree-lined street is regarded as one of the city’s priciest, with Albany and St Georges, in Toorak, and St Ninians at Brighton.

Past and present residents include Andrew Peacock, the late Lady (Susan) Renouf, GT racing driver Mark Eddy, former National Australia Bank chief executive officer, Frank Cicutto, ex-Coles Myer chairman Stan Wallis and former Boeing Australia executive Craig Saddler.

In 2008, Hong Kong developer Xianwen Xu paid $9m for a five-bedroom mansion for his daughter while she studied here.

In 2002, Kylie Minogue paid $2.4m for an unrenovated dwelling in the street – a gift to her parents who later sold in nearby Alexandra Avenue (for $1.1m).

The highest price achieved for a Monomeath Avenue house is $12.08m.

The Engleharts are moving to a new build, near to the one they have just listed.

Jellis Craig’s Richard Earle and Cher Coad are closing an expressions of interest campaign for #13 next month.

With four bedrooms, it includes a marble-tiled entrance, study, retreat/library, formal and informal living and dining rooms, water garden and triple garage.
