Harrow House, 10 Beautiful Established AcresA place of peace, beauty and tranquillity, Harrow House is set on a picturesque 10 acres (approx.) in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula and offers a magnificent opportunity to embrace a unique country lifestyle.
Beyond the double gates, a meandering driveway leads through a park like front garden filled with established trees to the striking stone residence wrapped in a verandah that welcomes you home. The corner stone of any country estate, the wrap-around verandah lets you chase the sun throughout the day, curl up with a book in your favourite corner, end the day with a local Peninsula chardonnay in hard or watch the kids fly past on their scooters.
Step inside to the warm and inviting interiors that offer vast spaces for family and friends to come together and cosy places to gather by a roaring open fireplace. A granite and timber country kitchen looks out across the grounds with an Ilve nostalgie stove, Miele integrated dishwasher and central island; while a bar with cellar overlooks a voluminous living and dining room with a wood combustion fireplace set beneath a soaring sky-lit timber ceiling which offers a wonderful space for entertaining. A separate living room with a stone wrapped fireplace is a lovely sun-filled room to retreat to.
Four large fitted bedrooms, three opening to the verandah, include the palatial main bedroom suite with a walk-through robe to an equally spacious en suite with a clawfoot bath. The en suite and main bathroom both open to the verandah for that lovely open country feel.
Out in the grounds that dog-leg through to Graydens Road resides a beautiful self-contained studio with marble kitchenette and bathroom, timber floors and soaring ceilings that invites a tranquil place of refuge suitable for guests, an executive office or caretaker's residence. The entrepreneur may even explore the B&B possibilities.
Three large fenced paddocks are perfect for horses or a broad range of hobby farm ventures and are supported by extensive shedding for machinery and feed. While the extensive grounds with 3 phase power offer ample parking including garaging for three cars or a vintage car enthusiast and boat storage.
Offering incredible value for money and an increasingly rare opportunity to raise a family in a farmlet inspired setting, the new owner can work in the city and be home within the hour to their own secluded slice of paradise; while the children can easily access a broad range of local schools or private schools based on the Peninsula. Harrow House enjoys lovely open rural views which gives a wonderful sense of seclusion yet the property sits between Hastings, Western Port and Mornington's Port Phillip Bay, waterfront recreation, with close proximity to Balnarring village and within an hour's drive of Melbourne via nearby Peninsula Link.
