The Hawthorn home, Kinvoir has been listed having been last traded 90 years ago when bought by the Triaca family, one of Melbourne's original and most famous restaurant dynasties. 

They are renowned as being one of the first in terms of Melbourne's Italian restauratuers most notably through their popular Cafe Latin on Lonsdale Street. 

Simon Curtain and Andrew Harlock of Abercromby's have the listing of 42 Lisson Grove which has seen five generations of the family live there. 

Andrew is anticipating interest from $5 million at the March 9 private auction. 

The 2205 sqm home has been extended and now has eight bedrooms and three bathrooms. 

The eight bedroom house features an original pantry with meat safe, underground cellar and a secret timber panelled book room which can only be accessed through the verandah.

The estate also has a fully self contained apartment and a tennis court, one of the first in the area when built in the 1960's.

It is in the hands of Adrian and Maria Triaca.

It was originally bought by Adrian’s grandmother, Amelia Tilbury, and over the years the 2205sqm estate has been the scene of countless weddings, parties and significant events

It comes with magnificent timber panelled book room that is accessed via the return verandah and must be considered the ultimate secret room, complete with original ink wells, writing pads and dusty leather-bound books.
