Two eras come together at this palatial Brighton mansion, featuring an indoor pool and spa ideal for Melbourne’s temperamental climate.

The original 1888 house at 8 Black St was totally renovated and extended by its sellers, who CoreLogic records show snapped up the sprawling 2072sq m property in late-2010 for $5.125 million.

They’re now selling it with $13-$14 million price hopes.

There’s glitz and glamour throughout the home.

Their overhaul was completed in 2014 and also involved installing a new roof, zoned airconditioning, a lift, and a literal pool room with walls of glass that bring the outdoors in.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom residence’s 19th century beauty persists in marble fireplaces, timber cabinetry and decorative ceilings.

The 21st century shows itself in the vast open-plan living and dining room, featuring a kitchen with dark granite benchtops, a stone sink, and Capital and Miele appliances.

The old and new parts of the double-storey house are connected by a glazed hallway.

Buxton Brighton selling agent Halli Moore said the abode also offered “everything anyone needs to host a party”, notably Vintec wine fridges, an outdoor dishwasher and barbecue.

Brighton’s median sale price for houses was $2.3 million in 2018, the latest CoreLogic figures show.
