Tranquil Family Living on The Golden Mile
This prestige home is hidden amongst substantial properties on Mount Eliza’s renowned Golden Mile. The Peninsula lifestyle is on show with a design that brings the picture-perfect Port Phillip Bay views into the home at all turns. A twinkling arc of lights around the bay entertains after hours whilst Daveys Bay beckons a short stroll away. A sprawling open plan living is extended through bi-folds to a stunning pool with outdoor living areas and a pool house comprising a bathroom, spa and sauna. On lazy summer afternoons, the established landscape yields gentle shade, whilst a fire pit shares tranquil views of the ever-changing bay. The artful garden designed by Linton La Fontaine showcases restrained bursts of colour that amaze throughout the seasons. Winter roses greet you at the entrance whilst french lavender flowers prolifically on a garden path from sophisticated outdoor entertaining to fanciful children’s playground. A grand master retreat has a double ensuite and dressing room with a second master on the ground floor housed within the family zone. Ideal as au pair, teenage or guest accommodation. The kitchen has a full complement of Miele appliances and wine fridge whilst a butler’s pantry houses a second dishwasher. A server window and stone benchtop make year-round entertaining a breeze indoors and out. The living is anchored by a gas fire and employs travertine to re-create the warmth of the entrance hall with a home theatre, office and family room providing additional room to live, relax and work. A homemaker’s laundry, hydronic heating, zoned sound system, gated entry, double garage with workshop and more are on offer. With its close proximity to elite schools and heavenly beaches, there are plentiful reasons to enjoy this home for years to come.
