Toorak mansion built on site of Jason Donovan’s former family home seeking over $8 million

A near-new Toorak mansion, built on the site and using the footprint of a home formerly owned by entertainer, Jason Donovan, is for sale.

The Christopher Doyle designed residence at 1 Torresdale Court is expected to trade for between $8 million and $8.8 million.

The home has formal and informal living rooms.

With Tudor influences, the English style dwelling includes five bedrooms, a kitchen with porcelain benches, study, media room and children’s retreat.

Outside, a bluestone-paved terrace leads to a heated lap pool.
