Harnessing the relaxed ambience of the hills coupled with an enchanting history, this beautifully styled character home is privately nestled off whisper quiet Cards Lane, an easy stroll from the charming villages of Olinda and Mount Dandenong. The breathtaking property reflects refined contemporary comfort with a touch of provincial chic and delivers the quintessential hills lifestyle you’ve dreamed about. Richly infused with character, yet fully equipped for modern living this irresistible hills home certainly makes a statement; French doors, hardwood floors, fretwork, a flickering wood fire, classic plantation shutters and a wide verandah for taking in the magnificence of the leafy gardens, it’s all here to enjoy and embrace on a lush half acre that is fully immersed in its natural landscape.

Historically of local significance, Card’s Lane was named after the Card’s Family with most properties in the street owned by world famous author and crochet pattern designer, Mary Cards (1861-1940) or her sisters who lived at #7 in the early-mid 1900s. Fondly known as “Bungaree” (derived from an Aboriginal word meaning hut), Mary owned two properties – one in London and one in Olinda (#7) that she referred to as her “2 huts” and she would retreat to 'Bungaree' after her regular trips to Europe and America. Mary wrote that she chose the location for “its surpassing beauty on the edge of a forest of giant eucalyptus trees”, a forest now home to a chorus of kookaburras and other local birdlife.

As you enter, the heart of the home reveals itself in the form of a stunning Caesarstone kitchen, boasting a social breakfast island and a 900mm SMEG cooker, complemented by a luxe scullery to keep life clutter free. Three inviting living areas offer versatility and space to entertain or enjoy the rhythm of daily life including a chandelier-clad dining zone with a beautiful bay window, cosy lounge with gas log fire ambience and a family room that beckons you to enjoy fireside downtime. The master bedroom exudes luxury with its sumptuous ensuite and walk-in robe, providing a sanctuary of comfort sequestered from the remaining three bedrooms. Equally as stylish, the family bathroom pampers with a monsoon shower and soaker tub for days end.

A shady place to relax on a warm summer’s day the charming deck unfolds from the rumpus room overlooking wonderful, lush gardens adorned with magnolias, camellias, and hydrangeas that burst into bloom come spring creating a picture-perfect backdrop for outdoor living. Indulge in moments of tranquillity in the outdoor spa, drink in hand, surrounded by the beauty of nature and there’s blankets of lush lawn framed by manicured hedges delivering a haven for child’s play. Offering a lifestyle of unparalleled beauty and comfort, the residence invites you to create cherished memories amidst its timeless elegance.

Adding to the allure is the superb location right in the middle of Olinda and Mount Dandenong villages – it’s an easy stroll either way to vibrant café culture, boutique shopping and eateries combining convenience with a peaceful quietude. Rich in lifestyle amenities, the location will bring a lifetime of joy to the lucky new owners.
