On The Market: 1920s Post Office Converted Into $10 Million Luxury Home

For those interested in looking at luxury homes you could never afford…

Domain / 24-28 George Street East Melbourne VIC 3002

For the first time in over 100 years, one of Victoria’s “most significant and spectacular luxury homes” is back on the market. Strikingly, what is now a lavish contemporary living space was once the headquarters of the George Street Post Office.

The original 1920s red brick façade has been preserved as seen in the building’s distinctive antique face.

On the inside, however, is a generous 4-bedroom and 3-bathroom property with soaring ceilings and tall windows which allow for an abundance of natural light.

According to the listing, an “adjoining study and library have been astutely forged from the Post Offices original second street entry and private post box collection area.”

Navigating to the outside world, the space unfolds to a “totally private botanic oasis and exquisite conservatory.”
