Majestically positioned with its expansive 4716m2 allotment backing on to lush state forest, this unique custom-built home is a split-level masterpiece designed to complement its beautiful surroundings.
Unique in every way with its radially sawn cedar exterior, the spectacular interiors with soaring raked ceilings, exposed beams and rustic Blackbutt timber floors are accentuated by an abundance of natural light showcasing the bespoke elements and creating a warm atmosphere for comfortable family living.
Enter to a grand kitchen with deluxe stone benches, custom designed breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances that are paired with crisp white cabinetry to complement timber accents. This kitchen, the heart of the house, overlooks an expansive living/dining area where family and friends can gather for meal-time, special occasions or festive feasts.
Sitting below is a large lounge space which includes a rustic wood burner for those winter nights. This space has the potential for a pool table making it an ideal rumpus zone for teens to hang out or for gatherings in front of the big screen.
Up one level is a study/fourth bedroom and a restful master retreat with double robes, private deck access and a beautiful ensuite with exquisite ceramic tiles, whilst on the top floor are two identical attic-style bedrooms with decadent walk-in robes and split-systems. Make sure you pause on the way down to take in the breathtaking northern outlook from the architecturally designed window that bathes the upper floors in sunlight.
Externally the living areas overflow onto a wide hardwood wrap around veranda taking in varying angles of the property and the surrounding landscape, culminating in an expansive semi-covered alfresco zone at the rear where you will entertain in style against a scenic backdrop.
Off the deck is a natural bushland haven to explore with a castlemaine stonewall to meander along, a rain fed creek which flows through two ponds tracked by pathways and steps, and a plethora of bushwalks in the national park right on your doorstep. Alternatively, sit back and relax whilst listening to the melody of the local birdsongs and watching for native widelife including Kangaroos, Wallabies and Deer.
Additional highlights include a huge double carport, vast under-house storage, family-size laundry and bathroom, split system air-conditioning, security alarm system, solar power, gravity fed rainwater from a 35,000 litre tank and plenty of off-street parking with turning circles suitable for caravans, trailers or boats.
Located minutes from the Village, the adventure playground, bush tracks, Montrose Primary, Billanook Primary, Billanook College, football oval and buses to Lilydale Mooroolbark, Croydon and Ringwood stations – this is the perfect family sanctuary for those looking to escape the urban sprawl.
