"The Cabin" - Mountain Paradise with Magnificent Views

Magnificently set within an acre of absolutely stunning botanic gardens and commanding breathtaking uninterrupted views to the city, Port Phillip Bay and the Macedon Ranges, this brilliantly renovated and extended c1910 "cabin" is the ultimate hillside retreat.

Behind a circular drive, a stone path meanders through gardens to the welcoming entrance hall where timber floors flow underfoot to the sun-drenched sitting room opening to a huge northwest facing deck offering spectacular garden and city views. At the very heart of the home, the original cabin living room is an evocative reflection of its era with rustic rafters, original Oregon cladding and a majestic floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Adjoining a beautiful dining area and gourmet "country-style" kitchen appointed with Rayburn and Ilve ovens and stone benches, is a space that invites entertaining on both an intimate and lavish scale. Double doors extend festivities out to the large deck, a splendid venue for BBQs, al fresco dining or simply enjoying the sunsets. The beautiful main bedroom with walk in robe and luxurious designer en suite is matched in a separate wing by two additional double bedrooms with robes and a stylish bathroom. Providing ideal guest accommodation, there is a 1-bedroom loft with bathroom and living room above the double garage. The gently sloping gardens filled with Copper Beech, Elm, Cyprus and Walnut trees, Ginkos, Japanese Maples, English box hedges, citrus/fruit tree orchard, Magnolia and Camelia hedges offers a wonderful sense of tranquility broken only by birdsong.

Enviably positioned close to Sherbrooke Forest walking trails, buses, Ferny Creek Reserve, a host of cafes, bakeries and the renowned Proserpina Bakehouse and Miss Marples Tearooms and a number of schools, "The Cabin" also includes hydronic heating, RC/air-conditioners, laundry with drying racks, mud room, ducted vacuum system, large storeroom, auto gates, electric and gas hot water services, generator/mains transfer power switch at switchboard, rain water recycling system which is on both mains water and the garden taps are supplied from 2 large under deck, rain water tanks.
