Federation style surrounded by park-like gardens
The park-like gardens of this Federation style residence complement the limestone residence itself in breathtaking detail and impeccable design. Solid Tasmanian oak floors match the gravitas of 3m high ceilings decorated with cornices and rosettes of the era. There are five bedrooms within two distinct zones surrounding three living areas that overlook a confection of roses at every turn. The kitchen is anchored by a generous island with stone benchtops in a timeless shade of spun sunlight. The sprawling open plan living steps out through bi-folds to an alfresco and superb 12m solar heated pool. Three bedrooms comprise a family zone whilst the master suite is quieted with a guest bedroom or nursery. The master comprises a spa en suite and window seat that calls for reflection on the fully irrigated gardens. The immaculate lawns of this one acre (4000sqm approx) property are surrounded by florals and exotics that lend a majesty to the presence of this visionary garden within the Mornington Peninsula’s most accessible rural heartland. Other inclusions number gas ducted heating, evaporative cooling, triple lock up garage with home office/gymnasium, as well as a children’s playground with the rarely encountered option to walk to the Woodleigh School.
