Welcome to BlueCross Darnlee
Nestled among the landscaped gardens on Toorak’s prestigious Lansell Road, BlueCross Darnlee is an elegant heritage-listed mansion, originally built in 1898. Converted into an aged care residence in 1999, BlueCross Darnlee still retains many of its original Queen Anne-style features. A key feature of the building is its conical tower clad with terracotta shingles and decorative mouldings.
On the ground floor, you will find the breathtaking original dining room and a private dining room with double doors that flow out to a veranda and terraced gardens. The residence features three large communal areas, with intimate sitting rooms located throughout the residence for quieter moments.
