Exuding beautiful old-world elegance and a “Country Hamptons” ambiance, this mid-century character residence invites you to secure an exceptional piece of Mount Evelyn real estate originally part of the Morrison Estate. Paying homage to its history, tasteful updates complement double hung sash windows, polished Tasmanian Oak floors, picture rails, leadlight, dado panelling, lofty ceilings and its original 1940s cornices to create a wow-factor residence that is absolute turnkey. Reclaimed elements seamlessly interlace and there’s a story to tell at every turn of the distinct layout that showcases staircases that hug either side of the home flowing to a masterful 1997 extension. Every welcoming step perfectly portrays the best of old and new, with modern luxuries complementing the timeless setting.

A touch of glamour is delivered via a welcoming entrance hall flowing to a sumptuous lounge with elegant wood fireplace and garden glimpses.

Step down to the open plan living domain highlighted by a comfortable family room framed by magnificent picture windows reclaimed from The Box Hill Town Hall.

A chef’s delight kitchen with a platter-worthy breakfast bar, farmhouse sink, stainless steel 800mm oven/cooktop, walk-in pantry and warm Jarrah timber benchtops melts into a family meals area, paired with a Coonara style wood fire for toasty winter warmth.

The impeccable appointments that characterise every aspect of this remarkable residence extend to the four-bedroom accommodation. Every sleep space has ample storage and abundant character with the fourth bedroom a flexi space depending on your lifestyle needs.

Also flaunting its contemporary meets classic style are two full-size family bathrooms with one featuring a deluxe spa bath the whole family will relish.

Alfresco zones flank the open plan living at the rear of the home with a sunny deck the place to gather family and friends on balmy summer evenings, fire up the barbecue and watch the kids splash in the natural mineral pool below. In the colder months warm up with the luxury of an outdoor spa. Beyond, terraced and landscaped gardens are private and feng-sui friendly with a spot for a firepit to enjoy under starry skies, lush lawn at the front for the little ones and a dreamy front bullnose under a corrugated iron canopy where you can sit for a while with your favourite brew.

Those seeking space for a home office, a gym or for creative projects will also appreciate the property's two separate studios with carpet tiles underfoot.

The perfect marriage of a unique and flexible floorplan and undeniable character ensures this is a home you can grow into - and not out of - walking distance to Morrison Reserve, Yarra Hills Secondary College, CIRE Community School and easily accessible to Mt Evelyn village shops, cafes, and services, with the beautiful Warburton Rail Trail minutes away.
