Built in 1847, Como is an intriguing mix of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture.
This time-capsule of Melbourne aristocracy spans a century from the Gold Rush era through two World Wars. 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 servant’s areas, kitchen and laundry have been preserved.
Bring your own picnic and wander through the beautiful gardens. Immerse yourself in the history and luxury that make Como Melbourne’s most glamorous location.
Open: Friday to Sunday, 10am to 3pm
Please note the house is closed for tours for select times on 25 & 26 November during the Paris to Provence festival.
