Unsold last year, 13 Merriwee Crescent, Toorak remains on the market with $3.7 million expectations for the five bedrooms, four bathroom house.

It's a 1970-built Neil Clerehan-designed home on its 836 square metre block. Title Tattle gathers it was built for the Skepper family.

Kay & Burton agent Michael Armstrong has the listing of the smart mid-20th century offering which has only had the three owners. 

Set back from the street, the house comes with flat black roof and frame accents.

Inside there is glass balustrading and pool.

It last traded at $752,000 in 1993 when sold by John and Marlene Milburn-Pyle to the current vendors.

It was sold around the time when John Milburn-Pyle departed Colonial Mutual Life, one of Australia's oldest life offices. He and Colonial Mutual purchased the home in 1983 for around $420,000 in 1983 on a 46/54 split. He bought out the CML 54% part equity in home in pre-recession 1990 for around $510,000.

RT Edgar had the offering last April when it was passed in at auction on a $3.2 million vendor bid.

Merriwee Crescent's last sale was post-auction in May when a sale was secured after 10 Merriwee Crescent was passed in at $2.525 million.

There was just the one reported bidder at the Marshall White auction. It had sold in late 2012 at $2.65 million.
