There’s five-star luxury, and then there’s this one-of-a-kind feature-packed home, meticulously renovated with no regard for expense in its quest to achieve a standard of living that creates a new class of luxurious living.
Careful consideration has gone into every aspect of transforming this home into the triumph of high-end living that it is, so for the buyer who wants it all — the prestige, the sophisticated sense of style and the luxurious acre lifestyle — this is it.
No embellishment is required to declare that only the best of everything resides on this immaculately maintained acre (approx.) allotment, which also features well-established and manicured gardens, 150-tree olive grove, an assortment of fruit trees and automatic watering system.
Extensive use of marble tiling throughout the home coupled with rare marble waterfall benchtops to the kitchen, pantry, guests powder room, laundry and rear powder room highlights the lavish nature of the two-storey interior, as does the pure silk curtains and high quality Bremworth New Zealand wool carpets to formal lounge (with wet bar and gas fireplace) and dining, plantation shutters throughout the downstairs living areas, handmade built-in timber cabinetry in the home office and Mitsubishi reverse-cycle air-conditioning with six separately controlled zones. And there’s so much more…
An extravagant Austrian chandelier with Egyptian crystals (with electric motor for easy cleaning) accentuates the grandeur of the stately entrance foyer, while two chandeliers of the same quality add class and grace to the elegant formal settings.
Venture into the heart of the home and prepare to have your breath taken away by an open-plan living that’s spectacular in every sense, effortlessly blending the expansive interior via stacker doors with a five-star outdoor area that is tailor-made for the grand entertainer at heart. An undercover alfresco with marble floors, a lengthy granite benchtop, Capital BBQ (with high powered infrared zone burner for Teppanyaki cooking), emporite cabinetry and fully-wired speaker system back to the theatre room will have you cooking in style during get-togethers with friends, while back inside, a state-of-the-art kitchen dressed with full slab marble splashback, Blum easy-close drawers and doors, pantry overhead cabinets with electric touch open/close and virtually brand new Miele appliances (built-in microwave, built-in steamer oven, moisture plus oven and dishwasher) is a sight to behold.
When kids aren’t kicking the footy around the synthetic lawn or splashing about in the fully-tiled solar-heated swimming pool (with beach spa for the kids and remote controlled water blade with techno lights), retreat to the home theatre room and let them unwind with a family-favourite movie. In the meantime, burn a few calories by enjoying a solid workout in the gymnasium, complete with a Tyco sauna, shower and powder room.
Modern luxury extends to the marble bathrooms, all of which feature designer mirrors, hydronic towel rails and Villeroy & Boch basins and toilet system. In the case of the family bathroom, it boasts that extra bit of luxury in the form of a Victoria + Albert quarrycast limestone bath with freestanding tap.
Bedrooms are in keeping with the home’s generous proportions and occupy the privacy of the upstairs floorplan, and if ever you require that peaceful escape, the private Rotunda (granite benchtop, emporite cabinetry, full shutters to the windows and doors and plumbed with natural gas) perched amongst the manicured gardens at the top of the property is perfect for morning meditations, daily yoga sessions or a casual cocktail at sunset.
Packed with features, this breathtaking home also showcases an extra large laundry with plenty of built-in storage, hydronic heating system, Valet M200 intercom with front door camera, separate study, parquetry floors upstairs, security alarm and ducted vacuum.
Conveniently located within minutes of The Pines Shopping Centre, bus transport, well-regarded private schools (Carey Baptist Grammar and Donvale Christian College among them), Mullum Mullum Reserve, Westfield Shoppingtown and the Eastern Freeway/Eastlink.
