UNPARALLELED LUXURY ON THE GREAT OCEAN ROADThink luxury.
Think expansive ocean views and towering native gums.
Then let yourself be transported by the exquisite, architecturally designed masterpiece of 1200 Great Ocean Road.
Perched on a dramatic hillside a short drive from the exclusive beachside town of Lorne, on Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road, every detail in this 1000 square metre home has been meticulously planned and crafted over three open-plan levels.
Native, landscaped gardens created by award-winning Phillip Johnson Landscapes, and a naturally filtered, swimmable billabong with cascading falls, induce an instant sense of serenity and calm, as you take in the bold and majestic zinc-clad exterior of this impressive property.
Upon entering the home you’ll be struck by craftsmanship at its finest. Rough-finish, European oak boards adorn the floors and staircases, complemented by the contemporary feel of polished concrete on the lower level.
An elegant 25m metre indoor swimming pool, complete with projection wall and enviable sound system, sits adjacent to a generous gymnasium and adjoining sauna where you can relax, unwind or burn off some steam. An east-facing yoga deck set amidst the native gardens, provides a peaceful retreat to commence your day and soak in the morning rays.
Also on the lower level, a generous study allows for privacy from the rest of the home, and a spacious playroom with hideaway bed provides a versatile living space or additional bedroom. Beyond this lies a cosy entertainment nook, perfect for the kids to claim as their own.
On the upper level, a long, dramatic hallway transports you to a light-filled, open plan dining, kitchen and living area, where style and sophistication abound. Designed by Studio Becker, and appointed with one-off Miele appliances, the kitchen is a true haven for culinary connoisseurs. Adjustable bench space and a walk-in store allow for maximum versatility and discreet storage in this crisp, modern kitchen.
When al fresco entertaining beckons, step into the private, rear courtyard, complete with stainless steel outdoor kitchen, wood-fired oven, Brazilian parilla grill and electric rotisserie. Or visit the substantial kitchen garden complete with large, elevated growing beds, brimming with fresh vegetables and herbs.
When it’s time to retire for the day, retreat to one of four generous bedrooms located on the middle and upper floors. The majestic master suite, perched at the highest point of the house, luxuriates in a 360 degree panorama of uninterrupted ocean views and native bushland. With the roof top engineered to accommodate stairs and an outdoor deck, there’s yet further potential to extend this already opulent master suite.
The guest suite is equally as luxurious and privately located. Both suites boast freestanding Focus fireplaces, their own balconies, large walk in dressing rooms by Poliform and opulent bathrooms featuring rain showers and Zucchetti and KOS fittings.
The two remaining bedrooms offer spacious and serene family or guest quarters, both with ensuite facilities, and the living space on the lower level with hideaway bed provides an additional bedroom if so desired.
A veritable playground for the young and young-at-heart, this property includes a state-of-the-art cinema room with German-designed sound system, a fully appointed bar with adjoining walk-in, climate controlled wine cellar, a multi-zoned sound system, an in-ground Olympic rated trampoline, a central terrace with fire pit and boules court, and a Japanese zen spa in which to unwind.
With every last detail carefully considered, this property includes digital wall mounted touch panels and electronic switches to operate the lighting, electric window blinds, sound system and visual services, a 24kW solar system and two heat exchange pumps. A spacious 4 car garage also sits neatly beneath the rest of the home, with plenty of additional parking space for your guests.
Set amidst the spectacular scenery of Australia’s most notable coastline, and currently on offer for the first time, we invite your expressions of interest in the private and luxurious retreat of 1200 Great Ocean Road.
