Eildon, St Kilda was constructed as a thirty-roomed mansion for the renowned Western District pastoralist, John Lang Currie, in 1872. It incorporated an existing Georgian dwelling which had been erected c1850-53 for Edward Green. Prolific Melbourne architects Reed and Barnes were commissioned to undertake this remodelling.

The first land sales took place in St Kilda in 1842 and Green acquired land in Grey Street, with views across the bay, in 1847. The area became a fashionable resort for the Western District squattocracy and John Lang Currie, owner of such Western District properties as Larra (stables H0298) and Titanga (H0299), acquired Green's property in 1871. Currie's family retained the property for twenty years after his death in 1898.
