Here is an estate that from its gated entrance promises perfection and delivers in spades. Set on 10 verdant acres (approx.) in a quiet cul-de-sac within a stroll of Merricks General Store, Arcadia opens to panoramic views across vineyards to Western Port that are magnificently framed from the architect and interior designed five bedroom, 3.5 bathroom plus a study residence.\n\nA true expression of the Australian vernacular, the two-storey residence with a heated swimming pool caters to the way we seek to live in a country environment with all the trimmings of city luxury. An exterior clad in Grey Ironbark with clever sliding timber battened screens on the western projection for light control has been selected to weather naturally over time; while the flowing interiors are defined by elemental natural finishes including Italian bluestone, Carrara Marble, Blackbutt flooring and Limed timber detailing on selected internal walls.\n\n5.8 metre vaulted ceilings add an ethereal aspect to the main floor that takes your attention to the view every step of the way. Each zone lures you to the picture windows from the coffee bar in the kitchen to the marble topped window seat in the dining zone and the tempting day bed in the living room that is further defined by a freestanding French Chiminees Philippe fireplace resting on bluestone. A formal dining room leads out to the poolside terraces; while a barbecue terrace is easily accessible from the kitchen. Here an array of standout features include Italian bluestone benchtops that waterfall down the staircase, a long island, AEG appliances including an induction cooktop and integrated dishwasher, and a butler’s pantry. \n\nBeautifully detailed and generously scaled bedroom accommodation includes the main bedroom with picture window outlooks across the landscape, wall of robes and an ensuite with freestanding bath and marble topped vanity. Four further fitted bedrooms with beautiful views reside on the lower-level and are served by a family bathroom, separate WC, a media room, rubber floored gymnasium, study, vestibule and heated polished concrete flooring are further defining features of the ground floor. \n\nThe beautifully appointed grounds include 110,000L of water storage, 20x60m sand based ménage, 350sqm workshop and stable block with three stables, tack room, hot/cold wash and day yards, separate hay shed with two horse shelter, electric entry gates, horse float and car parking, spring fed dam and five fenced paddocks. Centered between Brismore Park Winery, Merricks Creek Vineyard and Paradigm Hill, the landscape’s rolling hills are filled with romantic vistas of the wineries vines; while the white capped waves of Western Port are a reminder of the uniqueness of the setting. \n\nWith NBN, Foxtel and integrated surround sound the home is technology savvy; while a citrus grove, apple orchard, kitchen garden, solar boosted hot water and 5KW solar electricity system add a lovely element of self-sufficiency to the property. The home also features double glazed low e windows, gas fired hydronic heating, air conditioning, solar and gas pool heating, mud room and excellent storage. \n\nA Merricks address is always sought-after, more so when it’s a quiet cul-de-sac close to Merricks General Store, safe swimming beaches and cellar doors and within easy reach of restaurants, national parks and surrounding villages. Within an hour’s drive of Melbourne, Arcadia offers all this and more.
