Cape Schanck, at the Southernmost tip of the Mornington Peninsula, is the most picturesque locale in the entire region. The large National Park is often used by many artists looking for outstanding beauty in their landscape paintings. Home to a dramatic coastline, iconic natural wonders and Victoria’s second oldest lighthouse, Cape Schanck is the ‘dress circle’ of Mornington Peninsula addresses.
51 Cape Schanck Road is superbly located (only a 1 kilometre walk to the majestic beauty of the National Park) and offers the astute buyer five acres, blessed with fertile, well-draining, sandy loam land, to enjoy many lifestyle pursuits.
The four bedroom, two bathroom residence lies in total seclusion from the road. The driveway has an imposing stone and brick gateway and leads through a stand of native bush, where Singing Honeyeater’s abound to welcome you home.
The wide, sheltering front veranda gives the home an inviting feel and the domed stained-glass entrance a grandeur befitting the address.
The home features attractive hardwood flooring and vaulted ceilings in the main living areas. At the heart of the home, sits the sun-drenched kitchen. Equipped with stainless steel appliances and bespoke timber cabinetry, the kitchen has ample storage and a lovely outlook of the garden. It adjoins the light-filled meals area and abuts the family room.
A separate, feature tiled, dining room leads to the sunken, cosy lounge. The lounge possesses a wood burning stove set in a face-brick mantle and chimney. Double, glazed doors, lead to the prime, alfresco decked, entertaining/BBQ area. This area is lavished with a built in spa.
The bedrooms are spacious and provide lovely vistas of the property. The master/parent’s retreat has an ensuite and WIR and connects to the home office (with dual separate outside access doors). Each of the children’s rooms have BIRs and study areas. All three are nourished by natural light.
The family bathroom has timber vanities and a large soaker bath.
The five acre holding has two horse-fenced paddocks and a large three bay machinery shed. A large, brick double garage and enormous workshop lies separate but adjacent to the house. Designed to match the house gables, this building allows endless possibilities for the home handyman/craftsman/mechanic to while away time with their hobbies and passions.
The property is serviced by a large underground rainwater tank and stock and garden water is provided by a fantastic, water-quality bore. The low-maintenance garden is dog-proofed fenced and has an ornamental pond that attracts many bird species.
Cape Schanck offers many outstanding designated walks through the wondrous National Park. The Lightstation Walk is famed for its astounding beauty and arrives at the limestone lighthouse. The lighthouse lantern served as a mariner’s beacon, and although it no longer shares its beam, the comforting illumination may well have caressed 51 Cape Schanck Road in days of yore. Certainly the address radiates brightness and a soothing succour that fits with the 150 year old tradition of the once luminous tower.
