Majestic, opulent and impeccably flawless – this impressive five-bedroom residence in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious locations offers a luxury lifestyle worthy of the most discerning tastes. Owner-built and under a year old, each detail is exquisitely considered and appointed for a relaxed and unrivalled lifestyle. Lavishly and tastefully decorated capacious living areas are complemented by extravagant alfresco entertaining aside an indulgent swimming pool, while spacious ensuite-bedrooms provide tranquil privacy and rest.
Striking manicured gardens and regal wrought-iron gates provide magnificent first impressions of this stately two-storey home. Swinging open the wide solid-oak entry doors, be greeted by European oak parquetry floors, enchanting plaster-moulded walls, and towering bulkhead ceilings - the dignified composition of this property is proven.
The unique and carefully-considered layout by Balwyn Design offers numerous living and recreation zones, spread across a sprawling 65-square floorplan. Guests can be warmed by a gas log fire in an expansive open plan entertaining zone lined by crafted bookshelves and media cabinets, or capture the tranquil ambience of a stone-stacked waterfall while served a meal in the imperial formal dining room with built-in food and wine buffet, or enjoy a cinema experience in the fully-equipped, surround-sound theatre room complete with tiered seating. Outside, alfresco entertaining is enhanced by a granite barbecue kitchenette and a soothing travertine-lined waterfall pool, complete with outdoor shower and WC.
Cooking is a true delight - spilling into the open plan zone, the kitchen allows meal preparation to be done in the company of family and friends or out of sight in an extensive butler’s pantry. Flanked by an elegant combination of mirrors and marble, the kitchen offers wide Miele appliances encased in stunning 2-pack cabinetry, and a sweet butler’s servery straight into the dining room buffet.
Guests are pampered by their own spacious and independent ground-level guest room with a delightful garden view and complemented by an opulent marble ensuite with double shower and twin basins.
Climbing up the impeccable staircase that gracefully combines European Oak and wrought-iron, a third private living room separates four additional baronial ensuite-bedrooms with walk-in robes, and a fully-fitted home office. The master bedroom features his and hers wardrobes, a beautiful Juliet balcony, and an expansive ensuite with a freestanding bath and two individual vanities.
With every infinite detail considered in this unblemished design, enjoy storage in plentiful abundance including a triple garage and expansive laundry, security alarm and CCTV with monitoring to mobile devices, ducted vacuum, 4-zone heating and refrigerated cooling, built-in audio, and smart wiring throughout. All gardens are auto-irrigated, and the solar-heated saltwater pool is self-cleaning, auto-filling and auto-chlorinated.
Situated among some of Kew’s best homes, within walking distance of Deepdene Primary and Kew High School, and just minutes from Melbourne’s most esteemed private schools, with an easy walk to Stradbroke Village and city-bound buses and trams, this is the epitome of Melbourne living.
