Sitting at the head of one of Victoria’s finest valleys and commanding views over the Kinglake National Park this beautiful modern home cleverly exploits the natural marvels of its surrounds. The large living/dining/kitchen space of polished concrete floors and granite bench tops is made grand by a vaulted ceiling and vast windows that draw in leagues of forested mountains as the valley below falls away forever. Just to sit in this room is to partake of profound theatre. The main bedroom, with a similarly breathtaking view, has a large WIR and an ensuite beautifully appointed. Two more bedrooms share a bathroom, all have views, as does the large rumpus room and study. Attached to the house a double garage, and in the grounds a large four-vehicle shed plus insulated studio/home office.
Completed in 2013, the residence is flame zone rated, designed and featured to exacting standards with highest quality materials that make it a fortress against the elements. Hydronically heated and ducted with air-conditioning throughout, the house is so comprehensively solar powered it has never received a power bill.
Deftly using northern alignments the house is sunlit in winter, but shaded in summer. The 10 acres of gardens are sweetly fractioned into bricked courtyards boasting statuary and water features, a Japanese garden has a stream running through it, and cosy spaces open to extensive lawns and an orchard, all automatically watered from 76,000 gallons of tanks and a bore. On the eastern border of the garden is the fern-lined Joyce Creek, its flow punctuated by waterfalls. An hour from the CBD but part of another world, the first sight of this property prompts a quickening of the pulse, before its contemplative loveliness envelops you. Land: 96 acres approx.
