Palatial ‘highway to absolute beachfront’ living has just scaled up to unparalleled perfection in this breathtaking 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom Tuscan inspired villa. Sitting in the most picturesque tropical gardens enjoying private beach access with glorious vistas over the dunes to the white sands of Carrum Beach, this distinguished manor looks like it would feature in the pages of an Italian lifestyle magazine. Rich in majestic beauty, this quality built home oozes luxury with its Italian tiling, Porters Paint finishes, high ceilings, rich timbers and cedar plantation shutters in its private sea of botanic garden colour. Built by the current owners 15 years ago, taking advantage of the impressive 976sqm approx. block and the natural bore water on site, this impeccable abode showcases a double door entry to a spectacular entry foyer with a wrought iron sweeping staircase; 3 large downstairs bedrooms (2 – BIRs/WIR) with one featuring a glamourous porcelain/marble semi-ensuite; a generous living area with French doors onto the traditional Italian alfresco courtyard; and a fitted laundry and a dumb waiter that goes up to the huge walk in pantry. Upstairs is the focal point of the home with its luxurious open plan entertaining area (gas fire) featuring a granite solid timber kitchen (WI pantry, granite island, Smeg/Miele appliances), bi-fold doors to a fabulous TV room (pre-wired for surround sound) and a huge alfresco terrace taking in the views from Mt Martha to Beaumaris with the city skyline hovering over the hill. There’s also a sublime powder room for the guests and a gorgeous main bedroom suite with a dressing room and luxe ensuite. Fully appointed, this family stunner provides ducted heating/air conditioning upstairs, and separate ducted heating downstairs, instant hot water with temperature control, video intercom, an irrigation system connected to the bore, a 4-car auto garage with store room and turning bay and automated gates to keep the home secure. An exceptional location near the new Carrum station, walk to great shops, cafes, Patterson River and the Kananook Creek Trail.
