This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure your own private sanctuary, boasting tranquil surrounds and resort-style living on 1 1/3 acres (approx.) of lush flourishing gardens. Masterfully designed, the home encompasses vast glass windows for abundant light, Victorian Ash matte floorboards, luxe carpet, stone benchtops, cathedral ceilings and stunning open-plan living that will make you believe you are at a retreat not a family home. The peace and quiet on the property is only interrupted by the sounds of birdsong and has indescribable value at every turn with leafy garden views from every window and complete privacy from the road.
The centrally located gourmet kitchen is a work of art with impeccable cabinetry including an illuminated walk-in pantry and appliance nook, _stone benchtops and quality stainless steel appliances including deluxe 900mm Bosch electric oven and gas cooktop, plus a dishwasher. A grand island bench with breakfast bar delivers a thoughtfully designed communal setting where family can congregate overlooking the dining zone and the step-down lounge with hearty open fire offering a nourishing warmth during the winter months. Additionally, there is a media room for when you need to escape and enjoy your downtime with a blockbuster or the PlayStation.
The accommodation zone offers something special with five robed bedrooms (or four and an office) with three ensuites (one with spa bath) and three toilets. The masterpiece is the enormous parent’s retreat in its own zone featuring a crackling open fire, TV connections and a stunning ensuite with his/her vanities, rainhead shower and a luxurious bath as the show-stopping main attraction. It simply must be seen to be appreciated.
Off the living zone is a covered entertainer’s deck dressed in merbau, majestically overlooking the naturally styled solar heated pool surrounded by a leafy oasis. Host friends and family as you dine alfresco and enjoy hot summer days – it’s a home designed for making memories. The rest of the outdoor zone comprises a lawn semi-shaded by resplendent maple, pin oak and Victorian ash trees framed by a chook shed and organic veggie patch that undulates gently down to a creek. Paved walkways, water features and a plethora of nooks to sit, relax and take in the gorgeous surrounds will be any gardener’s dream. The botanical showcase is also something to behold and would be right at home at the Chelsea Garden Show with lilies, roses, azaleas, _orchids, irises, rhododendrons, a succulent garden and award-winning strelitzias just some of the varieties that are spectacular when in full bloom.
