Eaglemont dream home: house atop Mt Eagle seeking almost $3m
Perched atop Mt Eagle, this 1930s charmer on the market in Eaglemont offers “spectacular views” towards Kinglake and the mountains.
The three-storey house at 8 Mount St is just as good to look at, having been fully renovated and extended by its engineer owner in a style sympathetic to its period origins.
This included matching the original brickwork on the extension, Nelson Alexander Ivanhoe’s Liz Walker said.

The works were done with the vendor’s family of three teenage children in mind, resulting in a cleverly zoned floorplan.
The property is set to go under the hammer on August 24, with a $2.8-$2.95 million price guide.
Its multiple living spaces are concentrated on the ground floor, along with the kitchen featuring premium appliances and custom cabinetry.
The five double bedrooms are split between the top two floors, with the top-notch main featuring a Juliet balcony, walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and adjoining office.
The north-facing landscaped 763sq m grounds feature a pool and vine-draped alfresco terrace.
Ms Walker said the house also benefited from being in a hot spot for medical professionals.
“A lot of doctors buy houses in Eaglemont and can almost walk to work,” she said.
