Formerly a city in its own right, Kew City Council, Hawthorn City Council and Camberwell City Council were amalgamated in 1994 to form the City of Boroondara. The suburb borders the Yarra river to the west and north, with Hawthorn to its south and Balwyn to its east. Prior to the establishment of Melbourne, the area was inhabited by the Wurundjeri peoples. In the 1840s European settlers named it the Parish of Boroondara—meaning “a place of shade” in the Woiwurrung language.

Kew has grown steadily since the early the Bridge Road crossing development and is now one of the vibrant suburbs in Melbourne. Town Planners were not constrained by the smaller lot allocations found just to the west over the Yarra and allotments in Kew were developed usually with much greater size and fronted wide, leafy boulevards.

The mansion is just a few kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, making it an attractive choice as it is within close proximity to gorgeous hotels and alternate wedding photography locations. Kew also features fellow 19th century location Studley Park Boathouse. The beautiful boathouse would have been operational when Butleigh Wootton was built.
