Ascot House is an elegant Victorian mansion set amongst two acres of beautiful gardens, conveniently located in a quiet street just minutes from the CBD and airport, at 50 Fenton St, Ascot Vale.  The traditional elegance of this original 1860’s homestead exists alongside the most modern function facilities. One of the reasons to choose this venue is for its subtle charm and extensive history contained within its walls. Step back into a bygone era, and arrive in style the same way original owner Lord Mayor of Melbourne John Thomas Smith’s guest did– by horse and cart.
