Botanical landscape surrounds Marklews original
This Marklews designed home on a generous 1276sqm (approx) in Old Mount Martha has been immaculately maintained with quality finishes in a palette reflective of enduring architecture. Surrounded by breathtaking Australian fauna, the property is a masterclass in native landscaping with a functional sensibility. An orchard and chook run are incorporated into garden with a shed and studio/gym or home office overlooking the vegie boxes. Inside, a living room is warmed by an open fire whilst the north-facing aspect of the summer room allows for cool breezes to flow through the home furnishing a level of sustainable architecture ahead of its time. The kitchen features timber cabinetry and a full wall of windows that bring the outdoors in. The dining overlooks the gardens that beckon closer inspection. The master suite is privately positioned at one end of the home whilst a family wing comprises two further bedrooms with built-in robes, a family bathroom, plus gas ducted heating and a split-system. Outstanding schools are within strolling distance as is Citation Oval with its local attractions, or walk easily to Mount Martha beaches and shops along wilderness trails and rest easily where birdsong is a welcome interruption to tranquil living.
