Selling agents Kay and Burton expect more than $2 million for the Hampton home of Danish fashion retailer Benedicte Olrik.

Her high-end boutique, Olrik Denmark, was established in 2006 sells Danish, European and Scandinavian fashion wear in the city, at Crown and in South Yarra.

The 16 Service Street Victorian weatherboard, circa 1890, has been rejuvenated over the past 12 years. It has five bedrooms and a large formal dining room at the front with bay window, art-deco chandelier, and door out to the return verandah.

There’s a formal sitting room/library and the open-plan living and meals area at the rear extends into an atrium with fish pond, deck and alfresco dining area.

The kitchen has a Caesar stone bench-top and five-burner Miele stove and oven. A traditional bathroom has a corner spa while another modern bathroom includes the laundry.

Period touches are the marble fireplaces, polished timber floors, picture rails and return veranda.

A talking point is the 112 year old Chinese elm on the block of 962 square metres. The double carport enters a side street.

Ian Jackson and Gail Pullen are handling the sale.
