Just weeks in and the Melbourne property market is off to a flying start.

There are $45 million plus hopes for Evans Court Estate, the 4,970 sqm Toorak compound belonging to the Roche family.

It will easily exceed the single dwelling state record of $40 million set quietly last year when Mowbray sold on St George's Road, Toorak.

But the offering would need competitive interest to exceed the Australian compound record when a Mosman Park compound fetched $57.5 million on the Swan River in Perth in a 2009 sale by estate agent Willie Porteous.

The six home Toorak compound with Evans Court and Glyndebourne Street frontages last sold without the fanfare in 2015 through Williams Batters.

This time Goldeneye Media have launched an international campaign including drone footage.

Abercromby's agent Jock Langley and CBRE's Mark Wizel have the listing.

The main residence, Windarring, dates back to 1918 when designed for James Russell Butchar by architects Oakden & Ballantyne in what was described as the Craftsman style.

The Derham family, who owned it for decades, undertook renovations which featured in an 1928 The Australian Home Beautiful edition.

The estate was later expanded by the former BP chief executive James Stafford-Fox and wife Moyna, who added its townhouses.
