Experience the best of each season, no matter which is your favourite time of year in this exceptional family residence upon an elevated 3804 sq m approx. allotment with beautiful views from every window. Inspired by the varying angles of light throughout the year, this carefully designed home embraces all four seasons, hence the property’s name – reminiscent of the famous concertos.
Lazy Summer days can be enjoyed drifting in the solar heated in-ground pool or relaxing in the alfresco areas. In Autumn, the late afternoon sun is captured in the casual living area framing a Baltic Pine kitchen. Contented Winter days can be spent by the cosy open fire in the elegant lounge and adjoining dining room. The glittering arrival of Spring is best enjoyed in the rumpus room with a bar, accessing cafe-style entertaining deck with an automated awning and heaters.
The residence has 5 bedrooms and a study/6th bedroom (all with built-in robes) serviced by 3 well-appointed bathrooms, including guest and huge master bedrooms with ensuites (master with spa bath) and walk-in robes.
Spectacularly appointed, some highlights include: zoned heating and cooling systems, stainless steel appliances including an easy-clean glass cooktop, Fisher and Paykel dish drawers and Miele ovens, slate floors, intercom, alarm, surround sound wiring, ducted vacuum, downstairs bluestone wine cellar, gas-boosted solar hot water, 3 large water tanks and an oversized double garage with a remote door, a carport, a workshop and internal entry. There is a vegetable patch, sealed driveway, pony paddock and 3 steel pet pens. Situated in a sealed, no-through road, there’s virtually no traffic noise or dust to interrupt the peaceful enjoyment of the surroundings.
Freshly painted and excellently maintained with brand new carpet throughout, this house is ready for its new owners to just walk in and begin to relax! Just a walk or short drive to Warrandyte Village and local schools, with the Yarra River and walking tracks at the end of the road, close to bus stops for private schools. A “must see” for anyone in need of that country experience, only 30 minutes from the CBD. One of the best properties in North Warrandyte!
