Unprecedented Luxury, Panoramic Views
Magnificent in stature and scale, this spectacular architect-designed single-level five bedroom, five bathroom residence with an exquisite infinity swimming pool and spa and stunning guest house personifies the quintessential country estate secluded on eight acres (approx.) with panoramic views across verdant greenery to Western Port and Phillip Island.
An uncompromised level of craftsmanship and distinct attention to detail highlights the scale and quality of the home's interiors which are designed to be transparent to the surrounding countryside and views and feature superb detail from vaulted trussed ceilings to American Oak floors, natural stonework and floor-to-ceiling glass. Whilst infinitely beautiful and grand, the home readily fulfills its function as a home for relaxed entertaining, easily accommodating family, guests and staff.
The botanical Paul Bangay designed gardens and grounds hold as much interest and detail as the interior while providing a shield of privacy with the perfect balance of manicured lawns, elegant formal entrance, walks, terraces and interspersed with specimen trees, a private 1.5-acre Pinot vineyard and introduced by a beautiful true country manor tree-lined driveway.
Beyond the gallery entrance that immediately strikes you with the wow factor this home conveys, the breathtaking, voluminous open-plan living and dining areas set beneath soaring ceilings are defined by clear glazing where the view takes centre stage. Remote glass doors leading out to the extensive travertine terrace brings dining and leisure outdoors with the award-winning infinity edge pool and spa seemingly floating off the terrace, stone wrapped fire pit and barbecue kitchen extending off the suburb internal entertainer's kitchen with double Miele ovens, Butler's pantry and long black granite island bench.
The palatial, hotel-inspired main bedroom suite is cradled within a private wing with its own lounge flowing out to a terrace with views across the vineyard, floating window seats, separate study, voluminous dressing room and sublime en suite with a freestanding bath open to the views.
Three further queen size bedrooms with en suites and beautiful garden views complement a separate self-contained guest house with the added convenience of a private entrance.
Comprehensively appointed with a library, guest powder room, separate gymnasium, extensive parking including a double remote garage, machinery shed and most uniquely a state-of-the-art geo-thermal system that provides all the air conditioning, central heating, hot water and pool heating.
With the feel of a sanctuary far removed from civilisation, this remarkable property is within an hour's drive from Melbourne and centrally located in one the Hinterlands most prestigious locations close to Red Hill Village, Shoreham beach, award-winning wineries, restaurants and within close proximity to all the major golf courses on the peninsula.
