Every once in a while a property is offered to the market which encapsulates the true essence of living in the Dandenong Ranges. This magnificent turn of the century landmark property is one of the original estates of the picturesque region and displays all of the classic charm and architectural detail of the Victorian era.
Situated in a quiet cul de sac on a made road, this unique sanctuary is just minutes walk from the popular tourist town of Sassafras. On almost 3 acres of sunny near level land with a combination of superb established border gardens and sprawling lawns it was featured as one of the Secret Gardens of The Dandenongs Springfest 2012. The sheer beauty and majestic display of colour is truly one that can only be appreciated over the four seasons.
Approaching the main residence sweeping verandas lined with Oak Leaf Hydrangeas set the country ambience and as you enter through the double doors you will be instantly captivated by the 11 foot ceilings, expansive open plan living spaces, antique French chandeliers, polished floor boards and open fireplaces. The large living and dining areas are framed by French doors and windows allowing views of the garden giving a conservatory feel and abundance of light. To ensure your comfort there is a top of the line ducted heating system and cooling throughout the homestead.
The award winning fully integrated German kitchen with black granite bench tops featuring AEG and Miele appliances connects the grand living rooms and flows to the extended veranda offering many secluded sitting areas to enjoy the garden.
The Master bedroom will overwhelm you with 13 ft vaulted ceiling and renovations in total sympathy to the period style to please the most discerning. His and hers walk in robes and exquisite ensuite bathroom with free standing Apaiser stone bath and open shower with travertine flooring an example of the elegant decor throughout.
Two further king bedrooms are well positioned away from the Master to give the adults privacy and have their own large bathroom with vestibule window above the spa bath and fully equipped laundry area with Miele washing machine and dryer.
The Estate is currently operating a successful accommodation business from two separate large self-contained cottages to the front of the property with separate driveway access.
The original Gatehouse cottage circa 1910 features historic leadlight windows and open log fire with rich walnut stained floorboards, spacious kitchen, lounge and meals area. The bedroom opens to a spa area and is perfect for privacy and guests will simply love the character and charm.
Situated opposite is the Keepers cottage in typical cottage styling which has an expansive kitchen and open plan living warmed by an open fire and connecting to the bedroom and spa ensuite...the veranda provides a seating space to once again appreciate Moulton Parks gardens.
This outstanding property offers versatility to those considering a lifestyle change and is fully supported by exceptional marketing collateral, or would be an ideal home office and accommodation for family and friends. Inspection will delight and the dream of becoming the next caretaker of one of Sassafras most historic and stunning properties can come true.
