Como House and Gardens
Located in South Yarra Como House and its surrounding manicured gardens provide an insight into Melbourne’s aristocracy. Built in 1847, for Sir Edward Eyre Williams, the mansion is a blend of Italianate and Australian Regency architecture and sits on six and a half acres of land.
After changing hands several times Como House was eventually purchased by the Armytage family in 1864 and for 95 years they hosted many of Melbourne’s finest dances and dinners.
