Exceptional property overlooking Dandenong Ranges
This exceptional property overlooking the Dandenong Ranges National Park balances the period features and character of one of the earlier hills residences with modern contemporary living.
Recently renovated to create a spacious five bedroom family home, the accommodation comprises:
Front entrance through a beautiful lead light glazed door opens onto a high-ceilinged landing with Baltic pine timber floor, ornate ceiling roses and cosy fireplace with wood burner. A living area with French doors leads to a wide covered veranda with impressive far reaching views.
Leading off the landing, four double bedrooms plus bedroom five/study, the master bedroom with built in robes and period style en-suite. The traditional family bathroom adjoins a large linen closet providing excellent storage space, with a spacious laundry room housing the original wood-fired range. This original part of the house retains features such as high ceilings, coving and sash windows. The upstairs layout lends itself to a dependant relative or teenager suite with separate side entrance.
To the ground floor, the well planned kitchen with granite bench tops flows seamlessly into the dining area and lounge. French doors open onto a wide covered veranda ideal for alfresco dining and a further lower decked entertaining area provides space for larger family gatherings. Both areas offer stunning views over the garden and Mount Dandenong.
The property also features gas-fired hydronic heating and evaporative cooling.
Externally a private driveway leads to the detached two car garage with workshop space and ample off road parking. The property has a well maintained garden featuring varied well established trees and extensive lawn area totalling just over one acre.
Perfectly positioned for local shops, schools, the William Angliss Hospital and historic 1000 Steps Kokoda trail. Upper Ferntree Gully station is a 10 minute walk with Metro Trains running direct to central Melbourne taking approximately 50 mins.
