Please contact the agents to register your private inspection this Saturday
A stately, grand and sumptuous residence, privately positioned in an exclusive pocket of Sassafras, where the fortunate few reside. Loved by the current caretakers for over 16 years, Chudleigh has long intrigued many - now we reveal the delights beyond its remarkable facade.
The impressive main entry draws guests up to the house, via wide ascending stone stairs, flanked by bronze Hellenistic sculptures, past defined garden rooms and a pond, framed by formed conifers and hedging. The impressive front porch reveals Gothic influenced windows and doorways, as distinctive by their pointed arches.
The entry hall extends your eye over 3 levels above, with a central timber and cast iron stairway dominant while timber panelling and travertine flooring decorates the interior. A casual sitting room with fireplace and bar nook is cosy with mellow timber floors and French doors reaching to the terrace inviting garden views. This private room sits adjacent to the two master suites with luxurious ensuites.
Breathtaking in every sense of the word, the architecture and design although unique, certainly functions as a family home or perfect refuge from a hectic world. The luxurious interior offers space, quiet, and total privacy, while extensive windows in the living areas provide spectacular uninterrupted city views, framed by the beauty of the Dandenong Ranges.
Stunning original wood panelling in the living and formal dining rooms are complemented by Trompe l'oeil painting and elevated, decorative ceilings. A flight of steps beckons to the upper cinema chamber, where further views of the city lights down below, and the ever changing skyline can be appreciated prior to a movie session.
The main bathroom is conveniently located for guests at the top of the stairs, alongside the third and fourth bedrooms with mezzanine access to the alfresco patio for gatherings. The quality of the fixtures and fittings will impress, while the kitchen is classically updated for functionality, with quality appliances encased by stone benches.
Easy access from the rear circular driveway and garage off a lane allow the owners to utilise discreet and private access.
