A haven of calm amidst nature's splendour, this captivating home offers a superb blend of space, style and privacy for large & growing families, enveloped by an expanse of thoughtfully curated gardens & park-like grounds on 1.75 acres. A true botanical masterpiece with an enchanting array of native & exotic flora that displays a sweeping showcase on the bend of the tourist road, the property is privately accessed via Inverness Road. The perfect sanctuary for families seeking the beauty of hills living with modern conveniences at their fingertips, the dreamy setting harmoniously blends with the natural landscape. Well oriented, you’ll also be treated daily to a lush forest outlook towards a fern gully & picture-perfect sunrises that are better than any expensive artwork.

High ceilings, ornate ceiling roses, semi-colonial windows, & gleaming freshly polished boards exude a timeless elegance that complements contemporary comforts. Three distinct living areas provide ample space for family interaction, entertainment, & quiet contemplation, while the cosy allure of a gas log fire adds a touch of ambient warmth to the formal lounge & dining areas. There’s also a rumpus room where the kids can turn up the volume & make their own.

At the heart of this stunning residence is a family room & an elegant kitchen overlooking a meals zone, equipped with stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, & an island bench, & complemented by a decadent butler's pantry to keep life clutter free.

The master suite is a serene retreat sequestered from the other three bedrooms, featuring a walk-in robe, ensuite, & private deck access where you can watch the sunrise from your spot under the covers. A home office at the entrance could also be a 5th bedroom depending on your lifestyle needs.

All-season entertaining is facilitated via a covered entertaining deck overlooking the breathtaking grounds, creating an ideal backdrop for alfresco dining & family gatherings. It’s also the best seat in the house to take in the magical glow of sunrise as you greet the day with the king parrots, rosellas or local family of kookaburras.

Meandering pathways that weave throughout the gently sloping lawns & freshly landscaped garden beds create a magical outdoor playground for all ages. Showcase gardens that are a blend of exotics, natives & indigenous varieties that attract at least 30 different species of birdlife create a spectrum of colour throughout the seasons.

This property encourages a lifestyle that reconnects you with nature and self-sufficiency. You can gather your own produce from the veggie gardens, & eggs from your own hens with a dedicated chicken run. Energy efficiency is also key, with the inclusion of solar panels, water tanks, under house insulation, & a Tesla electric charging system. Centrally heated, air-conditioned & alarmed, the home also features ducted vacuum throughout.

We hear it all the time, "I need room for my caravan or boat". In addition to a generous double garage, the brand new fully sealed driveway leads to a powered, 6.1mx6m garage/workshop & with additional flat parking spaces, this package just gets better and better.

Walking distance to bus stop for the 688 service (located at the foot of the property, with drop off bus stop directly opposite), the general store & post office where everyone knows you by name, Kalorama offers complete peace & tranquility with the bonus of a friendly old school community appeal. Enjoy being a mere stroll to Kalorama Oval & Playground, skate park, & Karwarra Nursery & close to all the delights of the Dandenong Ranges, Kalorama Park, Destiny Point Café, Silvan Dam Lookout, walking tracks, Mt Dandenong Primary School & Pre-School or benefit from being well connected to all the conveniences of Montrose or Mount Evelyn a short drive down the mountain.
