With an appreciation of earthly elements, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is immediately recognisable as an Alistair Knox design. Originally known as The Slater House, the secluded residence rests gently on 1 hectare (approx) perched over rolling hills in Merricks North beyond secure gates. The open plan living has towering ceilings with an oversized fireplace and plentiful winter light. High windows, fans, solar power and an Aga style cooker make for a negligible reliance on active energy at any time in the year. The entertainer’s kitchen features granite benchtops with recent updates that include two Bosch ovens and soft closures. The master suite with a newly installed dressing room and bathroom, shares the kitchen’s vista of a sustainable swimming pond designed and built by Waterscapes Australia. Using naturally occurring and locally-sourced materials, the pond is a hallmark of environmental design that rests comfortably beside the architecturally significant home. Beyond, a series of outdoor buildings include a studio and double garaging as well as a tennis court. A mature confection of native and exotic florals and fruiting trees underscores the stimulation of every sense at this property where time spent is rewarded with a light tread through an enduring landscape close to pristine beaches and the region’s renowned wineries.
