A grand Victorian estate in Toorak with a garden and grotto designed by Rodney Alsop has been listed for sale.

After 102 years, the Wettenhall family has listed Aberfeldie, the 4,425 square metre offering at 14 Lascelles Avenue.

It includes an 1865 Victorian residence, a second more substantial property, built in 1962, and a north-south tennis court, which runs the length of Orrong Road.

It was Dr Roland Wettenhall, who bought Aberfeldie in 1912, and his son, Dr Norman Wettenhall, who also lived at the home.

In the 1960s the north-west corner of Orrong and Toorak roads was sold making way for an apartment tower.

Marshall White Stonnington's Richard Mackinnon is expecting about $12 million.

The early 20-century architect Rodney Alsop, who died in 1932, designed Perth's English-style London Court and the University of Western Australia.
