An expatriate Australian family has paid just short of $20 million for a new five-bedroom Toorak home.

It was a four-level house on a 790-square-metre block at 2 Mysore Court that fetched $19.8 million.

It sold at an invitation-only private auction held by Abercromby’s Real Estate agent Jock Langley who had suggested a $14 million price guide. 

The mansion has extensive smart technology, an 18-seat cinema and an infinity pool with a lift providing access to its four levels. It provided 100 square metres of living and entertaining areas, plus a six-car basement garage.

It cost property developer Chris Holland $4.45 million in 2015 before he built the new glass encased home developed with interior designer wife Wendy.

Jack Merlo landscaped gardens now surround the home on its 790 sqm block.

The architect designed five bedroom home offers around 100 sqm of family living and entertaining space.

A rooftop entertaining terrace with rumpus room comes with views of the Melbourne city skyline.

A stand out feature is the cutting edge, THX certified 18 seat cinema with bar.

The smart home embodies integrated entertainment systems throughout, plus C-Bus and a solar panel system.

There's a climate controlled wine cellar, gym, games room and tranquil infinity pool with water wall courtyard.

Four of the six homes on the cul de sac had sold last year, with one at $7.25 million.

This neighbouring 1980s-style house with a tennis court at 3 Myvore Court has now resold for $8 million plus ahead of its scheduled Kay & Burton auction.

The property sits on 1324 square metres of land.

The exclusive Toorak cul-de-sac is near the corner of Toorak and Glenferrie roads.
