The trophy home at 3 Fulham Avenue in South Yarra has been listed for sale.

The grand 1900 Edwardian residence sits on one of the largest land parcels in the Como Park precinct. 

Surrounded by 2240 sqm of established gardens, the house displays all the grandeur of the era it was built, with an imposing central reception hall, a library and a formal dining room, all accompanied by marble open fireplaces and high panelled ceilings.

The reception room with a built in bar leads out to the gardens, tennis court and the swimming pool which can be overlooked from the upper level terrace.

The accommodation wing has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. 

Expressions of interest close on February 23 with Marshall White agents Richard Mackinnon and Celeste Wright who are anticipating about $12 million. 

It last sold at $270,000 in 1977.

The avenue's last sale was in October 2015 when Hawthorn couple, Peter and Penny Inge spent $6.8 million on a 1160sqm corner holding.

Peter is the joint managing director of the Zig Inge Group which, before the sale of the business in 2007, was one of Australia’s largest and longest running retirement village businesses.
