Privately set behind a treed façade and resting on 1.3 glorious acres with your own creek, this lavish home in a peaceful setting will give you a sense of isolation & calm whilst also making holidaying at home a wonderful reality. Swapping suburban stress for acreage serenity, you’ll enjoy resort style living among the beauty of nature, yet you’re just minutes from the Montrose Village. Thoughtfully designed, with two distinct living areas spread across a split-level floorplan, five bedrooms, three bathrooms & a spectacular parent’s retreat, the home is perfect for large and growing families as well as multi-generational living. Here, every season sparks joy whether its cosy nights in by the wood fire, poolside summers, autumn by the firepit or the breathtaking garden glory that spring brings. It’s a true oasis, providing a completely private retreat from the outside world as well as brilliant entertaining options.

Victorian ash floors sweep you through an open plan domain where floor to ceiling windows on the western wall bring the outdoors in. A sunken lounge with open fire ambience invites you to enjoy unobstructed views of the majestic maple, pin oak and Victorian ash trees that provide shade in summer and ample sunlight in winter. There’s also plentiful birdlife along with native flora and fauna to admire.

The kitchen is a dream and boasts thick stone countertops, walk-in pantry and quality stainless steel appliances including deluxe 900mm Bosch electric oven and gas cooktop. A grand breakfast island is ideal for stress-free food preparation, coffee catch ups and casual eats.

Adjacent, a meals domain ensures you can share stories of the day over dinner, then retreat for a night of Netflix in the theatre room. A flexible second living space, this room could also be utilised as a gym, home office or even a 6th bedroom.

Off a quiet hallway lies four bedrooms, family bathroom with spa & a larger than average bedroom with ensuite bathroom ideal for guests, adult children or multigeneration families.

Taking luxury to the next level, the sumptuous parent’s retreat is sequestered from the other bedrooms and enjoys enough space for a sofa to curl up by the open fire, and a stunning double vanity ensuite with luxe monsoon shower and a deep soak bath with garden views.

Outside, an outdoor oasis unfurls with both covered & open-air alfresco spaces to relax, dine and unwind backdropped by the shimmering inground solar heated pool and a Bali hut for lazing those summer days away. From the merbau deck, you can take it all in. The magic continues with a blanket of lawn framed by luscious greenery that weaves its way to the creek with a spot for the firepit, a hammock, a strawberry patch and oodles of wide-open space to take in the fresh air.

Prestigiously poised in the no through road end of Sheffield Road with national park and walking tracks at the end of the street, the home is close to lifestyle amenities, multiple schools including Montrose and Billanook Primary, Billanook College, Mooroolbark, Montrose and Kilsyth shopping precincts, with handy access to bus routes, and Mooroolbark train station. You can also be at the top of Mount Dandenong in 10 minutes.
