A thoughtful architectural stunner with delightful gardens
With an inspired architectural design that was well ahead of its time when it was constructed over three decades ago, and sitting on a sizeable 848 sqm (approx.) block surrounded by incredible landscaped gardens, this unique 3 bedroom + study, 2 bathroom residence is one of a kind.
Designed and built for the current owner in 1987, this spectacular property has every inch planned out, from the soaring vaulted ceilings with clerestory windows which let in stunning northern light, to striking Tasmanian Oak detail and every room designed to enjoy scenic garden vistas. The front study typifies the thought and uniqueness of this residence, with this space enjoying geometric windows and a timber beam ceiling feature on top of a built-in desk and excellent storage options.
The formal lounge and dining rooms are separated by a tall limewashed Tassie Oak partition, with the lounge serviced by an open brick fireplace sure to keep you warm in Melbourne winters. The practical kitchen includes premium Bosch and Fisher & Paykel appliances including dual dishdrawers, with this airy cooking zone looking down to the sunken family and meals hub which enjoys wonderful space for casual living.
The master bedroom has a position towards the front of the dwelling and boasts a walk-in robe and a tasteful semi-ensuite, while the other bedrooms have a private position at the other end of the house. This includes a sensational light-filled bedroom which offers a sizeable atrium window which acts as a frame to view the resplendent gardens at the back of the property. A covered BBQ courtyard has summer dining in mind, while you can spend hours just relaxing or meditating in the manicured green back garden which is truly an oasis.
Other property features include a stylish central bathroom, laundry, fantastic storage options including roof storage, zoned under floor hydronic heating, reverse cycle cooling, secure alarm, shed, rainwater tank, single garage, and a single carport. In the exclusive Box Hill High School zone, you’re also near Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, Blackburn Lake Primary School, St. Thomas the Apostle Primary School, Blackburn Station Village with cafes and shops, Blackburn South Shopping Centre, Forest Hill Chase, Morton Park, Furness Park, and buses.
