Monash University professor, the shoulder and elbow orthopaedic surgeon Simon Bell and his wife Jennifer are selling Greystones, their Brighton home, with a price guide of $7.3 million plus.

Located on Park Street amid established English gardens, the 1914 house sits on 2,219 square metres.

The house comes with six bedrooms and five bathrooms.

It's been home to the Bells for the past 20 years.

The house comes with a large cellar, sauna, studio with a gymnasium and a rooftop retreat that offers views across the bay to the city skyline.

Its vast north-facing living and dining area includes two living areas opening out to the terrace and a dining area set beneath a vaulted ceiling.

“It’s a period home with a history," Simon Bell says.

"We loved the fact that it’s an old house with high ceilings. It has a magic hideaway garden, tennis, cricket and basketball court as well as a spa and heated swimming pool.”

After living there for 20 years, the Bells are selling in the hope of downsizing.

“The house is just so big! We have the biggest main bedroom in Brighton, stretching the length of the house with views over the tennis court,” says Bell.

Greystones has been listed through Ian Jackson from Kay & Burton Brighton with expressions of interest closing October 30.
