Melbourne Home · Ada & Leon Kagan
This very special home in Melbourne’s leafy suburb of Elsternwick belongs to Ada and Leon Kagan, who have lived here for 57 years! The property was originally part of a land subdivision of the Rippon Lea Estate – as were all the neighbouring properties. Leon and Ada purchased the land at auction in 1953, later hiring architectural firm Bogle & Banfield Associates to design the house. In 1956 construction commenced, and by 1957 they had settled in to their brand new home!
