Rustic Sophistication Stellar Views
Rustic Sophistication Stellar views.
Combining the best in sophisticated modern living with rustic stone character, this extraordinary home may have the best views in South Gippsland.
This property is set on Ameys Track, one of South Gippslands’ grand ridge line roads and is surrounded by lush rain forest with the most striking views to Wilsons Prom’. Yet is easily accessible to the shops, cafes and services of Fish Creek, Meeniyan and Foster.
The current architecturally designed renovation and extension was completed in 2012. The home is currently configured with 2 living areas, 4 bedrooms, a study and 2 bathrooms.
Natural materials have been used thoughtfully throughout the property to connect the outstanding interiors to striking location and views, including monumental rock walls combining basalt, blue and rare ‘ruby wine’ stone.
As you step through the front door, past the study into the central open plan
kitchen/living/dining area you are greeted by gleaming recycled blackbutt timber floors.
Airy 4 meter high ceilings accentuate the double-glazed floor to ceiling windows, which maximise captivating tree fern, ocean and Prom vistas.
Quality finishes and cabinetry have been used throughout the large food lovers’ kitchen with its European appliances, Caesarstone bench tops and central Island breakfast bar, with huge storage, soft touch drawers and views on all sides.
The lounge area has 2 main focal points, the cosy French ‘Cheminees Phillippe’ slow combustion wood fire and the world class outlook to green rolling South Gippsland hills, across Corner Inlet and Wilsons Prom'.
It also has a reverse cycle air con’ unit for instant heat on chilly mornings or for those rare days when the ocean breezes require help to cool the property.
The guest bedroom, off the main living area has warm stonework walls and beams reminiscent of a French farmhouse, with easy access to the rear bathroom, via the stone walled combined wet-room and laundry.
The master bedroom is very large, with the king-sized bed facing expansive windows to capture ever changing views of the sea and mountains of the Prom’.
The equally large, modern ensuite, with glass walls on 2 sides, shares those views and is accessed via a walk-in robe and dressing room.
A snug stone walled bedroom is currently used as a TV room and offers a peaceful retreat.
For those who work from home, the house has good quality phone and internet access and in addition to the study by the front door, a generous studio, with its own private entry, sits at the rear of the house. With Tasmanian oak floors, a wood fire and reverse cycle air con’ it could be repurposed as a rumpus room or even separate apartment (subject to council approval).
At the end of the timber floored corridor sits a powder room, the stairs down to the large lower floor cellar/ storage area and stairs up to the highest point in the home, the 4th bedroom, known as the ‘reading room’ by the current owners, this peaceful area has glass on 4 sides, the best views in a home and its own kitchenette.
Outside the owners have created a revegetated, natural reserve and native habitat area, over 11.50 acres with over 6000 native trees and plants including a tree fern lined winter creek to encourage the local wildlife to visit.
A large veranda on 2 sides of the house allows space to enjoy the pristine environment. While a sheltered rear courtyard, with access from the kitchen and dining area provides a pleasant, shady, entertainment space.
Various fern lined stone steps and walls provide access to landscaped garden ‘rooms’ and a large woodshed/store area and second powered work shop and woodshed at the newly graded driveway.
A near new 53,000 litre rainwater tank, provides water for the house and garden and a modern boosted solar hot water system to heats it efficiently.
