This panoramic property with its magnificent mature landscape setting is a rare gem. It's stylish home sits in its own 2.5 acre park of mature specimens within a manicured enclave that overlooks Colac with views to the lakes and Mt Elephant.
Designed and laid out by connections with the Royal Botanic gardens, the planting and landscaping takes your breath away. The open lawn to the north is surrounded by individual garden rooms including a camellia walk, fernery, pond with stone waterway and an understorey elm path.
The immaculate home complements its breathtaking setting. Facing north to take in the views, the top-floor living areas are light-filled and spacious. The open plan kitchen-living area overlooks a deck with stunning vistas. Perfect for a glass of red at twilight. The kitchen has been updated with modern appliances, dishwasher and walk-in pantry. The formal living area, a perfect place to entertain, has floor-to-ceiling windows. Lastly on this level, is the master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe. There is underfloor heating, two reverse cycle air conditioners and a central vacuum system.
At ground level, the stone embankment enclosing the weeping cherry garden welcomes you through expansive double-doors into a stunning full-height entrance. This ground floor level leads along a hallway to two bedrooms with built-in robes and southerly views into a dappled magnolia garden. The adjacent renovated family bathroom consists of a modern glass-panelled shower recess with vanity and plenty of storage. At the end of the hallway is a large laundry giving easy access to the workshop, potting shed, clothes line and orchard.
A light-filled staircase leads down to the lowest level. Wisteria views greet you out the double doors of the guest bedroom complete with new ensuite bathroom. The adjacent light filled library/study with its built in bookcases which leads through to an entertaining room which is perfect as a rumpus room, with access to the bbq area. This lower level would lend itself to becoming a B&B or self-contained extended family unit.
The home certainly provides a fresh perspective to the words 'living space' as the features just keep on coming: The jewel in the setting is the tranquil salt-water solar-powered in-ground swimming pool. In addition to the double carport, there is a two-bay shed (8m x 9m), trellised with passionfruit and grapevines, a large workshop, garden shed, and an enclosed drip-irrigated vegetable garden encircled by espaliered fruit trees.
