A once in a lifetime opportunity to change your lifestyle and live in your own private 100-year-old botanical oasis. This unique estate, amongst magnificent, seasonal gardens is being offered to market for only the second time in 55 years.
Remote controlled gates lead you down meandering stone paths, revealing majestic Rhododendrons and Azaleas, stone walls, bright pockets of flowers and vast green lawns. You never know quite what you'll stumble on next-and that's part of its allure.
The estate was originally known as the Georgian Guesthouse, complete with tennis court, croquet lawn, lily pond, and waterfall on the south lawn. The estate is nestled in a quiet location opposite the National Rhododendron Gardens and includes 2 residences, outbuildings, ample shedding and a separate wine cellar.
Bathed in natural light, the main residence is nestled into the gardens and has been designed to blend into its surroundings. The current owners have meticulously reconstructed the original home over the last two years, with the architectural brief being to deliver large open plan elegance, maximize views from all rooms and create a warm relaxed mountain lifestyle.
The main lounge has the wow-factor, complete with double height ceilings, stunning copper fireplace and large double glazed windows offering magnificent views of the south lawn. This leads into the kitchen with walk-in pantry, large dual fuel range and custom cabinetry including an antique central island/work station. Bi-fold windows and sliding doors in the kitchen and family room are designed to create seamless indoor-outdoor living and provide access to the expansive north-facing deck along with a large remote controlled pool/spa. Three luxury bedrooms, including the main with expansive wardrobes & ensuite with cast iron claw foot tub are saturated in sunlight and abundant style. Ample parking is provided by a double garage with direct access into the home.
The second residence ideal for in-law or guest accommodation has also been carefully reconstructed. Formerly the original stables, this dwelling has been transformed into open plan living with wood fire, elegant bedrooms with garden views, and the practicality of large window panels, heating in every room, and double carport.
This unique estate in an exceptional setting is a truly special opportunity to leave the city 45 minutes behind and reconnect with the natural beauty and wildlife the Dandenong Ranges has to offer.
