A unique property for family living at its absolute best

Behind its brick and lattice façade, this iconic Daryl Jackson designed home is an oasis of modern proportions. Surprising in its scale, this residence makes perfect use of its 2,000+ sqm block, seamlessly merging lifestyle attributes with well-considered living spaces, and 4 bedrooms.

Enter to a gracious lobby with floor to ceiling windows around the living area. Here a wood fireplace provides a focal point to the bagged and painted brick walls and high ceilings. Garden views to the pool create a sense of seclusion. The beautifully appointed gourmet kitchen upon its Herringbone parquetry floor, features stone benchtops, extensive joinery and European appliances. Thoughtfully placed in the arc of this casual living zone, the kitchen is light filled and spacious capturing vistas of the pool and garden. A domed skylight defines the dining area offering a sense of scale.

A timber and metal staircase leads to a large multi-purpose family room with gas fireplace, where bay windows overlook the pool and garden, and sliding doors provide decked access to the flood-lit North-South tennis court. Further on, pass the fully fitted executive study with extensive wooden cabinetry and desk. Continuing upstairs, the central zone of the first floor has 2 large bedrooms with robes, surrounding a family bathroom and powder room. Sitting adjacent to an expansive terrace, an opulent parent's retreat comprises a generous master bedroom, sparkling ensuite with double shower and spa, and spacious dressing room. Here there are also 2 balconies and windows with spectacular views to the city skyline.

Moving downstairs via the central stairwell of curved glass brick, to the ground floor where a bedroom with ensuite offers privacy and independence. A 3rd living space acts equally well as a dining room, teen retreat, den or music room. Further down the stairs, access to the 3-car remote controlled garage offers easy admittance from the street. A climate-controlled wine cellar adds further amenity.

Outside, this home offers endless options for play, relaxation and enjoyment. The pool is accessed from a handy wet zone, gym and sauna. The rooftop terrace, accessed via an external staircase overlooks the property and city skyline. The tennis court is complemented by a pavilion with sunny deck, concertina doors and fireplace, set in lush gardens. An established rose garden and scattered fruit trees and vines bring joy over the changing seasons, maintained by a fully automated irrigation system that is supplied by a 25,000 litre rainwater tank.

Enviably positioned on Scotch Hill amongst Hawthorn's most prestigious homes and a stone's throw from Scotch College, this unique residence is in close proximity to the Yarra River, parkland, walking and cycling trails, public transport, shopping and dining, and within easy reach of many other top schools. A complete package that is sure to delight its next proud owners
