A masterful transformation and reimagining of the floorplan of this circa 1950 weatherboard has created a stunning, flexible haven with scope for multi-generational living or BnB potential on prestigious Ridge Road. Showcasing beautiful character – the dual storey layout retains original timber floorboards, high ceilings, picture rails, sash windows and ornate cornices combined with large panes of glass overlooking a magical forest backdrop. In winter when the trees lose their leaves you can enjoy spectacular west-facing sunsets from your living area. Located walking distance to the village for convenience, you also have glorious state forest and picturesque walking trails as an extension of your backyard adding privacy, seclusion and lifestyle excellence.
On the first floor a family room warmed by a crackling wood fire overlooks a lavish dining area fit for a table to feed the crowds on Christmas day. An adjacent black stone topped kitchen features an island bench with breakfast bar, 900mm stainless-steel cooker and a dishwasher.
Two big bedrooms and a stunning family bathroom with rain shower and mood lighting to accompany your deep soak bath complete the first-floor layout.
Down the custom staircase reveals a surprise package of versatility with a grand master retreat with its own entrance, exquisite ensuite (you’ll love the view from the bath as much as the bed), walk-in robe and space for a sofa and a kitchenette if required. Perfect for the heads of the house, it will also make the ideal teen retreat, grandparent accommodation or a rentable space for a BnB.
Connected by bespoke built-in bookcases and a sunlit stairwell, a fourth bedroom or home studio exists as a lavish space that could be utilised for a home business, divided in two or converted to self-contained with the laundry plumbing next door and an external door. The choice is yours!
Beautifully terraced grounds reveal elaborate stonework and serene spots to sit for a while with a brew or a book. There’s a nook for a firepit on the grand 3726m2 allotment as well as magical front gardens that will be a fairy haven for the young or the young at heart. At the rear you can escape into the forest and choose your own adventure.
Only a few minutes’ drive from stunning Burke’s Lookout and Sky High for unbeatable views of Melbourne, the #688 and #694 bus stop and iconic tourist attractions of the Dandenong Ranges – the location is first-class.
