Grand and inspiring and built to last generations, this Tuscan-influenced country home surrounded by well-planned gardens and equestrian facilities to take your passion to the next level offers luxury and lifestyle with a sought-after Mornington Peninsula address.
Set on 11 level acres featuring an oversized arena, stables and workshed complex that includes a large one-bedroom self-contained studio, loose boxes to most paddocks and a tranquil and picturesque dam at the foot of the property, there are indulgences for horses and humans at every turn.
Approached via a stunning tree-lined drive offering a stately European feel, the two-storey residence has an ageless craftsman-built quality with box hedge and pencil pines framing the façade, while at the rear a sun-drenched pergola and sparkling swimming pool is backdropped by magnolias, roses and more hedging.
An imposing timber and wrought iron front door and matching staircase in the formal entry leads into a family, meals and kitchen area where rustic travertine floors carry the restrained Mediterranean theme and a series of French doors open to the ornamental vine-covered alfresco area with wood-fired pizza oven and covered sitting area beside the pool.
A large Falcon stove, jarrah benchtops, detailed cabinetry and a walk-in pantry will cater for any family gathering while there is also a cosy open fire for ambience in the family room during the cooler months.
Also downstairs is a second living area with a bar and French doors outside, a large home office, two bedrooms, family bathroom, mud room entry and elaborate wine cellar, while on the upper level is yet another living area and four more bedrooms and three bathrooms including a huge master with a sitting area and gas log fire, a walk-in robe and ensuite with an indulgent free-standing bath, walk-in shower and twin vanity.
Minutes from shops, schools and a vast selection of premium local wineries, and barely an hour from the city, other features of this superb property include American oak parquetry floors, reverse cycle heating and cooling, remote double garage, 60x30m arena, hot and cold horse wash, dam and bore water, 200,000 litre water tank and remote front gates.
