Unique And Serene In The Dandenong Ranges

This architecturally designed home has been the solace for many years of solo sailor Jesse Martin and his family.

Designed around a central courtyard, this luxury residence boasts unique internally designed angles complimented by bluestone crazy paving outside. This elegant home is at one with its surroundings due to expansive floor to ceiling windows in almost every room of the home, inviting abundant natural light and garden views indoors.

Offering a progressive floorplan with architectural flare, the main floor living areas include a sunken lounge with open fire place and French doors, kitchen with casual meals area opening to the paved patio, formal dining with bi-fold doors to the sun-dappled deck, and the convenience of a spacious laundry, guest powder room, and WC. Along a glass-lined gallery corridor is the sprawling home office/studio/workshop area or potential 4th bedroom, and upstairs offers 3 luxury bedrooms, including 2 with ensuites and Juliet balconies.

Outside, the level landscaped garden is a delightful 4,024 sq m approx. of lawns, mature trees, al fresco dining areas, and ultimate privacy. The ideal mix of sun and shade ensures this is a garden to be enjoyed year round.

In contrast to the strong lines and modern finishes of the main residence is the original 2-bedroom miner’s cottage, circa late-1800s, that provides a touch of heritage and country charm. With the vaulted ceilings, original radial weatherboards, classic front porch, and character living areas inside, this is a highlight not to be missed. The cottage also provides value-add options to the property either for extra income or extended family living.

For the hobbyist or storage, is a discretely hidden 10 x 5 meter shed on a concrete floor and a 3 x 3 meter garden shed.
