Certain to inspire awe, the palatial proportions and majesty of this unprecedented, 5 bedroom plus study / library, French Provincial style residence ensure that it is a home that you and your lucky guests will never forget. A celebration of life lived to the fullest, the home creates a genuine sense of occasion, in a blue ribbon, family-friendly, Deepdene location that is convenient to a smorgasboard of Melbourne’s most prestigious schools.
From vision to completion, every dazzling detail has been considered and meticulously crafted in this home that is arranged over 3 levels – all connected by an elevator – and instantly engages with a rare sense of grandeur and towering ceilings of at least 3 metres throughout.
As it flows through a formal dining and a lounge / ballroom - where a stunning 6.5 metre cathedral ceiling with a custom made wrought iron chandelier is unquestionably dramatic – the home builds towards its crescendo at the rear. An open-plan kitchen / meals / living is perfectly suited to indoor-outdoor entertaining. Arranged around a huge Calcutta Marble island bench with an in-built professional-quality Wolf cooktop - all under 3.8 metre ceilings - this is a flawless place to gather with friends and family. A suite of Wolf and Subzero appliances in the kitchen and the enormous Butler’s Pantry indicate a unique commitment to quality, whilst huge glass sliding doors create a seamless connection to undercover entertaining, where an outdoor kitchen takes centre stage. Idyllically set beside a solar-heated in-ground swimming pool and this is a setting your friends and family will never want to leave.
Parents will relish the indulgence of a huge master bedroom suite where a private ensuite features a frameless screened shower, stone bath and intelligent wc to compliment his and hers' dressing rooms to deliver a grand 5 star experience. Indeed, each of the bedrooms enjoys the privilege of its own ensuite and each of the bathrooms is superbly appointed with marble bench tops and premium marble tiles. Conveniently, one of the bedrooms – potentially a guest bedroom – is set downstairs, whilst the others are upstairs.
Offering so many places for the growing family to gather, but equally for them to be alone, the home also features a formal lounge / possible home office at the front of the home. Upstairs, adjacent to four of the bedrooms, there is a large retreat and a generous study /library with copious amounts of built-in storage. Further underlining the sense of luxury, a rear home theatre is acoustically brilliant.
Additional highlights include a 6 seat sauna, a sweeping wrought iron staircase and a 6 car garage with a wine cellar. As you might expect in a home of this calibre, it also features European Oak parquetry flooring, central ducted heating, refrigerated cooling, secure video entry, a security alarm, CCTV surveillance, a beautifully manicure garden and much more.
This is a blue ribbon position of family-friendly prestige in one of Deepdene’s most sought-after, broad and tree-lined boulevards. Set within the highly-coveted, Balwyn High School zone, you are just metres from the 109 tram route which can take you or your children to a wide selection of Melbourne’s finest schools, including Fintona, Camberwell Grammar School, and Camberwell Girls Grammar, plus you have Deepdene Primary School, the outstanding shops and cafes of Whitehorse Rd, Camberwell Junction and Kew Junction all nearby as well.
