An Unprecedented StunnerYour senses will be touched from the moment you enter "Minton".
Set on approximately 3.25 acres of land, 600sqm of internal living area and with some of the most tranquil and picturesque gardens available, this private residence boasts an unique combination of stunning original character, wonderful artistic flair, and brilliance that truly needs to be seen to be believed.
This stunning 7-bedroom, 5-bathroom family home has been lovingly built on a huge solid rock, resulting in a magnificent estate set in the Dandenong Ranges a popular day trip area for Melbournians. This historic home has its origins dating back to the 1920s when it was owned by Melbourne dentist in Collins Street. After being donated to the state trustees for its fascinating garden, the home and land was eventually purchased by current owner and artist Mr Chu in 1995.
With much care, craftsmanship and amazing attention to detail, Mr Chu together with a team of artists, interior designers and landscapers spent 7 years meticulously extending the original home with the use of hand selected rare quarry stone and recycled red gum, ironbark and turpentine timbers. Most importantly, the owner expended great efforts to establish a truly unique art garden. The result is a picture of stunning rustic living, with the home enjoying lofty ceilings, unique curved walls, multiple fireplaces and wood heaters throughout, and an abundance of space and retreats.
The entire property is surrounded by century old trees and an orchard all of which can be explored via walking tracks. A 120m long enchanting creek flows through this private land only a few meters away from the house. A portion of the creek runs over a large rock face, a rare occurrence.
This unmissable property is located in the midst of the main tourist area of the Dandenong Ranges, moments away from the charming Sassafras and Olinda Villages, the national park and other well known tourist attractions.
