Staring out across the calming waters of Cardinia all the way to Arthur's Seat in the Mornington Peninsula and French Island in Western Port Bay, sits a home that has grown to equal the magnificence of its situation. From a 1930’s Art Deco cottage it has evolved into a showstopper crowned with a landmark turret, no less. This is a home that will be at the heart of your family for generations.
Sheltered by tall trees at the front the garden creates an outlook for all seasons. Past the 1930’s fretwork on the porch, the entrance hall with pressed tin roof prepares you for an array of original features that have been well preserved. The master suite consists of sitting room, his and hers walk in wardrobes, separate toilet and stately bath and shower. The fireplace in the sitting room is magnificent with rose blush deco feature tiles and both this room and the bedroom have large bay windows looking out across the blossoms.
The lynchpin of the house is the kitchen, recently renovated in white subway tiles and Victorian ash benches. The cupboards have handles of brass; a motif that is echoed throughout the house. The stainless-steel appliances have been installed to host on a vast scale with a 6 burner gas stove, a double oven and double drawer dishwasher. From here you can serve dinner in the beautiful wood panelled dining room, which has been enhanced with antique white paint or take the party out to the veranda where you can soak up the sunset with the exceptional view. The veranda, dining room, and kitchen all enjoy the outlook to great effect but it is in the epic family room with a cathedral ceiling, encompassing windows and automatic blinds that you can really marvel at the panorama.
The treats continue downstairs where you find a mud room, 3 bedrooms with large WIRs, a study and a sunroom that opens out to a private courtyard drenched with sun and dripping with roses. The bathroom and laundry on this level are new, crisp and white. Comfort is assured with ducted heating, evaporation cooling and a split system. The under veranda has been utilised as a hanging garden with terracotta tiles running the length of the house enclosed by a hedge of Sasanqua Camellia. The garage has room for two cars plus ample room for your ride on and loft storage.
The mature orchard in the rear garden includes; fig, apple, mandarins, grapefruit, tangelo, lime, lemon, guava, quince, oranges, plum, peaches and pomegranate. Your morning smoothies will be organic, picked by your own hand and fed by water from the 22,000 litre tanks. The vegetable garden is fully fenced. Wildlife abounds, the most majestic of which is a breeding pair of wedge tailed eagles nesting in lofty gum. The olive arbor leads to the picturesque pergola and overlooks the croquet lawn. Further delights include a truly charming secret garden of roses hidden behind the cherry laurel hedge.
This magic near two-acre garden is a staging post for life's great moments with those you cherish.
