Como House & Garden
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 servant’s areas, kitchen and laundry have been preserved.
The gardens at Como are open from Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 5pm.
Guided tours of the house operate on select Wednesdays (2pm only), Fridays (2pm only), and Saturdays and Sundays (11am, 12.30pm and 2pm).
