Rare Beauty, Rich Provenance & an Iconic Address
House Sold - BRIGHTON VIC
A home of rare beauty and rich provenance from architect-designer, Stephen Akehurst, this Golden Mile residence offers Mediterranean-inspired living of world-class standards at one of Melbourne’s most highly-regarded addresses. Enclosed by around 1600 sqm of lushly hedged grounds with five car basement garaging supplemented by a parking on a gated plaza, this exemplary home offers five bedroom, five-plus bathroom accommodation across a grand main home and separate poolside retreat.
Graced with a refined blend of formal, casual and al fresco spaces, the home opens grandly with lounge, dining and craftsman-fitted library-office around a central lobby wrapped by a spectacular American Oak and iron stair. Stretching deep along a northerly aspect, a plantation-shuttered dining atrium is bracketed by colonnaded terraces, while family living flows to a covered, blind-shaded al fresco area. Appointed for entertaining with a domed cellar-tasting-room (racked for at least 70 dozen bottles with cellaring for more) and a wine-fridge-fitted bar-kitchen servicing the BBQ and woodfire-oven area, this grand design stars a spectacular marble kitchen (with a French Lacanche range, Miele dishwasher and Liebherr fridges) – with caterers’ kitchen and walk-in pantry discreetly hidden.
Grandly accommodating with a full-width master-domain (comprising bedroom, ensuite and mirror-robed dressing-room) beyond a private lobby, the home positions balconied secondary bedrooms (all with ensuite access, most with walk-in-robes) beyond a sweeping central landing… and adds a fifth bedroom, bathroom, sauna and fire-warmed lounge to the separate poolside guest or staff quarters.
Artisan-crafted from stone, timber and found materials from around the globe, the home is constructed from hand-selected limestone and set beneath an impressive copper-plumbed slate roof (repurpose from a church). With cool limestone floors (inlaid with American Oak for the central lobby), rich marble and limestone benchtops, and custom cabinetry (in American Oak and Emporite), the home is exquisitely detailed to match the patina of the grandest European residence – with terracotta brick hearths and authentic Italian stone mantles for the gas-fireplaces and elegant chandeliers – even for the tasting room.
Appointed to ensure absolute comfort with commercial-grade zoned heating and refrigerated air-conditioning plus in-floor hydronic heating, the home is secured by 5 camera CCTV surveillance, alarm and keypad entry. Featuring automated lighting and two lifts (one direct to the garden and pool), the home features perfect practicalities including a rear stairwell mud-room, bedroom workstations and a workshop and store-rooms for the garage. Auto-cleaned and dual-heated, the fully-tiled pool is enhanced by a spa and water-features, while 25,000L-plus sub-floor water-storage ensures fully-reticulated gardens remain healthy.
With an iconic address in the heart of Golden Mile, this finely crafted home has bay beaches and boardwalks within 200m, schools and Church St shopping with a minute, and the CBD within a relaxed beachfront drive.
