Benchmark Brilliance, Utter ExclusivityPRIVATE AUCTION Thursday 8 November
Overlooking the valley by the Yarra River’s edge, this bespoke two-storey four bedroom, 2.5 bathroom Studley Park residence set on 743sqm (approx.)
in exquisite mature seasonal gardens with a swimming pool has been transformed by award-winning JCB architects into a magnificent family home.
An orchestrated simplicity with a focus on the Scandinavian design principles of minimalism and functionality is enhanced by a synergy between the internal spaces and the park like gardens. A luxuriant selection of natural finishes which age beautifully over time range from Italian aged brass fittings to American Oak joinery, handmade tiles, custom made brass fly screens, commissioned hand-blown glass light fittings and concrete benchtops hand poured on site.
With no expense spared, every inch of the home has been crafted using toxin free materials including natural paints and a triple filtered water system. A soothing
palette of whites, greys and natural timbers are interwoven establishing a united and calming look.
The living and dining zone with an open fireplace is voluminous with soaring elevated views across the organic gardens that offer secret pockets of sun and shade, artisan crafted wrought-iron balustrades and an elegant Australian bluestone balcony plus entertaining terrace crowned beneath a stunning pergola crafted from massive single reclaimed timber beams.
To the north, a superb conservatory with polished concrete flooring is wrapped in planation shutters and leads out to a stone walled garden room. The kitchen is both aesthetically beautiful and functional with an Aga cast iron cooker, integrated refrigerator, Italian porcelain sink with insinkerator, coffee bar, handmade Italian tiles and a servery to the northern garden with a kitchen garden and fruit trees.
A ground-floor fourth bedroom or study complements three superb top-floor fitted bedrooms including the main bedroom with home cinema, his and her fitted dressing rooms and exquisite ensuite with handmade Japanese ceramic tiles and underfloor heating. A matching main bathroom complements a ground-floor powder room and fitted laundry.
Comprehensive appointments include a triple remote garage, sensor lighting, automated irrigation, integrated lighting, pure alpaca wool carpets, integrated sound system, zoned reverse-cycle heating and air conditioning, saltwater heated swimming pool and video intercom.
An oasis of calm, this extraordinary residence resides in a tightly held Studley Park enclave opposite Yarra Bend Park and walking trails; while being only minutes from Kew Junction, cafes, restaurants and transport and within close proximity to private schools and Eastlink.
