Inspect by Private Appointment only.
Take the mystique and romance of an old English stone-cottage, with the visual spectacle of flourishing showcase-gardens and a prime level 2550sqm site in the very heart of The Dandenong Ranges. You will have one of the most beautifully-rounded lifestyle environments you’re ever likely to experience! Such is the charm of “Sunninghill ”. From first glance, as you approach the home along the extensive circular driveway lined with seasonal blooms, the intrigue begins, and as you tour through the home, every turn rewards you with profound character and a very spacious and “liveable” floorplan that rises to the contemporary demands of the modern family.
“Sunninghill” displays easy indoor-outdoor integration, with French doors spilling outdoors from two living rooms and the master bedroom, all opening to a completely private entertaining deck that’s an idyllic “outdoor living room”. The home is beautifully appointed with a large and very impressive entrance hall, substantial timber kitchen with walk-in larder, featuring an amazing La Canche 90 cm dual oven and matching range hood, Belfast ceramic sink and a Fisher and Paykel plumbed fridge, plus country styled marble benchtops and island bench complete this lovely kitchen. Four double bedrooms plus study, including huge attic-style bedroom with pretty dormer windows (a stunning fairy-tale retreat for a very lucky child!).
Perhaps the ultimate appeal lies in the charm of the detail - extensive leadlight casement-windows, high ceilings and decorative cornices, polished hardwood floors, and feature wood fireplace.
Sunninghill’s unique charm and character oozes gracefully outdoors throughout its magnificent 90 year old garden, with the lengthy driveway lined with Silver Birch and a kaleidoscope of colours from mature Rhododendrons and an understory of rich orange Clivia contrasting against glossy green foliage. Mass plantings throughout the garden of Hellebores, Camellias, Azaleas, specimen Maples, Hydrangeas, sculpted Box Hedges and a majestic old Elm tree and Copper Beech trees.
While this utterly unique property illustrates all that The Hills represent with respect to “quality living embraced by true character” - this wonderful location answers all of your questions about daily practicalities. Situated within a minute’s walk of village shopping, cafes, restaurants and handy public transport.
