Amidst the privacy and seclusion of 20 acres of undulating grounds awaits a provincial style, architect designed residence, overlooking a stunning ornamental lake.
A guarded, sweeping driveway welcomes you to the residence and cottage which sits over the crest of the hill and at the end of a meandering drive. Entry to the home is through a lovely garden of Azaleas, Rhododendrons and Japanese Maples that cascade down to a private lawn area. As you pass through the grand portico into the main entry foyer, a large reception room overlooks the stunning grounds. The commercially designed kitchen is in keeping with the provincial style featuring a Paul Bocuse commercial size oven, granite bench tops and timber wall dressers. Discretely positioned at one end of the home is the spacious main bedroom and bathroom, whilst three other double bedrooms and bathroom occupy the accommodation wing at the opposite end just off a sunlit atrium.
The hallmark of the stunning provincial design are without doubt the grand soaring ceilings, beautiful atriums and clerestory windows, providing abundant natural sunlight throughout, whilst French doors from a number of rooms lead out to the surrounding gardens. The main central living room radiates warmth featuring a huge open fireplace and hydronic heating to keep those winter chills at bay. Tasteful finishes throughout include a blend of French imported and local handmade tiles, timber flooring and period style vanities.
Remaining with the theme of privacy and seclusion a one bedroom cottage is also located on the property, sufficiently set apart from the main residence offering caretaker accommodation or rental income.
Beautifully positioned in the sought after Yarra Valley Dandenong Ranges region, Lake Waterford sits amongst horse riding trails, wineries and all the region has to offer. Located just over an hour from Melbourne CBD with four paddocks for up to six horses and close proximity to the local pony club, riding enthusiasts are well catered for. Delight in the peace and tranquility of this amazing property.
