Carmyle, the grand Toorak trophy home that was among the earliest in the suburb, has been listed for sale with a guide of $12.5 million to $13.75 million.

It’s been listed by the Gunter family, who have owned the home since 1969.

The 23-room Victorian Italianate manor was designed by Francis Maloney White in the late 1870s for Scottish pastoralist Archibald Fisken.

Spanning 975 square metres, the home has up to 14 bedrooms, six bathrooms, a number of kitchens, a reception hall, a refined sitting room and a ballroom.

The ballroom has hosted performances by artists such as Judith Durham, Yalta Menuhin, Olaf Baer, Paul Badura-Skoda and Anna Pavlova.

Now on 2000 square metres, the estate once extended from Kooyong Road to Albany Road. Marshall White Stonnington agents Marcus Chiminello and Michael Wood have the listing.
