This grand old dame of the hills nestled into the escarpment of Mount Dandenong is situated on just under an acre of flourishing gardens with prized panoramas of the valley and treetops from its magnificent rear deck. Classic Tudor in design, “Wordsleigh’s” magnificent monotone façade is complemented by imposing stonework to create a magical old-world feel framed by gardens awash with hills classics such as rhododendrons, azaleas and camelias.
The enchanting two-storey layout is original by nature but brimming with yesteryear character and a story to tell from its one-owner history spanning over 50 years. Ideal for families seeking something out of the ordinary, the lavishly sized home is ripe for contemporary enhancement to create a dream family haven and features multiple living areas, four bedrooms and dreamy outdoor escapes. A bonus is the self-contained two-storey, Tudor inspired cottage among the treetops with its own driveway entrance, deck and gardens ideal for teens, in-laws or a rental opportunity (STCA).
