Beauxbatons Manor, the castle-like residence just outside of the Dandenongs in outer Melbourne, has hit the market for the first time in over 16 years.

The stately home in Sassafras, near Olinda some 45 kilometres east of Melbourne, last traded for $1.18 million in 2003.

Now the 2,550 sqm estate is up for sale with a suburb record guide of $2.6 million to $2.86 million through Bell Real Estate Olinda agents Corinne Sukroo and Jo Hirst.

Through a main entry with wide stone stairs, flanked by bronze Hellenistic sculptures, past garden rooms, conifers and a pond, is the front porch, with Gothic influenced windows, doors and pointed arches.

Immediately is the central timber and cast iron stairway. 

On the ground level is two master suites, each with their own ensuites, split by a casual sitting room with fireplace and bar nook, with French doors leading to a terrace with garden views.

The main living space is upstairs. There's original wood panelling in the living and formal dining rooms. The dining room features a Trompe l'oeil painting spanning a whole wall.

There's a further two bedrooms on this level, as as well as a mezzanine alfresco patio. Up the stairs is a cinema room. 

Sassafras' biggest residential sale came two years ago when a four bedroom home on 7,685 sqm sold for $2.3 million.
