Local Guide

The jewel in Ivanhoe East’s crown is the illustrious Ravenswood mansion to the west of AV Jennings’ beautiful Beauview Estate, a historically significant gathering of English-style homes running from Maltravers Road to Ivanhoe East Village. As the land gently falls to the river, substantial period and modern residences line the quiet leafy pockets flanking handy Burke Road. Every bit picturesque, prestigious and bound by community pride, Ivanhoe East is a prime family location with hectares of open space to enjoy, specialty shops and cafés to savour, local schools to get involved in, a golf course, sports clubs and a good transport network.


Ravenswood Mansion in Ivanhoe East is a historical landmark for the Banyule area. With construction beginning in the 1890s before the depression by financier Robert William Kennedy along the north side of Lower Heidelberg Road. This magnificent home is an example of the Renaissance Revival mansion boom period in Victoria, and one of the last build before the depression. This mansion has since been purchased by the Melbourne Ladies Benevolent Society and been converted into an elderly women's nursing home.
