Mandeville Hall


The 13 acres of land on the north-east corner of Orrong and Malvern Roads in Toorak were initially purchased in 1867 for £933 by Alfred Watson, a soft goods tradesman, who had a 16-room mansion erected known as St George (probably designed by Joseph Reed). Then in 1877/8, under architect Charles Webb for Joseph Clarke, the mansion was enlarged and renamed Mandeville Hall. The London firm of Gillow & Co. designed and furnished the exquisite interiors. Restoration of the mansion began in the 1990s and has continued with generous support from the school community.
