Meticulously designed and built by the owner over three decades, this sprawling homestead has a modernist, art deco vibe, with large, light-filled rooms and three sunny, north facing decks – but the most exciting feature of this property is the massive upstairs living area or parent’s retreat with the most fascinating and quirky spa/bathroom you’ll ever see! Nestled on 9.5 picturesque acres overlooking surrounding farmland and Morton National Park to the escarpment beyond, the property boasts a 4-5 bedroom home with a diverse floor plan offering endless options. A large black and white kitchen with Smeg six burner gas stove and island bench flows onto the dining area, with two glass sliders opening onto a sunny patio set amongst established gardens. Walk through the gallery-style hallway to a spacious lounge room with exposed timber beams and slow combustion fireplace. This is where the layout gets interesting, with a light filled foyer providing an alternate entry and connecting to the master suite with dressing room and huge bay window with window seat overlooking the garden courtyard. Continuing on downstairs there’s another two large double bedrooms, one with a private elevated sun terrace, plus an office or fourth bedroom. Upstairs is where the magic happens, with two massive connecting rooms opening out onto a huge entertaining deck with stunning mountain vistas. A picture window runs the entire length of one wall framing exquisite views of ornamental trees and the rural landscape to the east. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to how to use this space. It could be a parent’s retreat with second living area, a rumpus room, guest accommodation, office space or massive kids playroom. Venture into the upstairs jacuzzi area, where you’ll be blown away by the craftsmanship and creativity of the owner who has designed an elaborate ‘cave’ hideaway, complete with spa bath overlooking the national park, sumptuous built-in velvet lounges, hand carved timber features plus a funky sound and lighting system – you’ve never seen anything like it!
Immaculately maintained, the property has a carport, separate double garage with extra storage and provision for a bathroom, plus a double Colorbond shed with annex, a dog or chook pen and a potting shed. Mature native, fruit and ornamental trees, including magnolias and a Bunya pine are dotted through the gardens. There’s plenty of water available, with four rain water tanks totalling 34,000 litres, two dams and access to Croobyar Creek on the property’s boundary.
This is truly a rural retreat with a difference, in a highly sought-after location just five minutes from Milton township with its galleries, trendy cafes and boutique shops and ten minutes to magnificent Mollymook Beach.
