Immerse yourself in the history and luxury that make Como Melbourne’s most glamorous stately home.
Built in 1847, Como House and Garden is an intriguing mix of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture.
Como offers a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of former owners, the Armytage family, who lived there for nearly a century.
The Armytages became famous amongst Melbourne high society and equally famous for their many elegant dances, dinners and receptions. Those elegant dining and reception rooms are still furnished with Armytage family heirlooms and even the servants’ areas, kitchen and laundry have been preserved.
Guided tours of the house operate on Wednesdays & Fridays (1.30pm only), and Saturdays and Sundays (11.00am, 12.30pm and 2.00pm).
Join us for a guided tour of the house for a glimpse into the opulent lifestyles of former owners, including the Armytage family, who lived there for over a century. Famous among Melbourne high society for its elegant dances, dinners and receptions, the Armytage home remains furnished with original family heirlooms.
The gardens at Como are open from Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 5pm.
Entry to the gardens is free.
