Redefining contemporary family luxury, this private oasis delivers architectural excellence in an enviable locale between the beach and Elwood village. Exemplary Nicholas Wright design showcases a sublime connection to the home’s breathtaking pool and garden setting with soaring, glass wrapped spaces blurring the line between inside and out.
Visionary and artistic yet natural and earthy, this spectacular 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom residence with a studio echoes the seaside surroundings with exquisitely curated, bespoke style. A sublime facade is embraced by signature ‘basket-weave’ travertine, while aged lime-washed American Oak lines the panelled hallway. Volcanic marble benchtops complement custom cabinetry inlaid with marble chunks reminiscent of seashells embedded in the sand.
Infused with natural light, towering windows rise up from floor to ceiling to further emphasise a triumphant sense of scale. Grey Ironbark columns and secure fencing border the front courtyard which leads through to a frameless grey-tinted glass door with a reflective entry canopy. Timber panelling draws you through the gallery entrance past a formal indoor-outdoor lounge to an open plan living precinct. Designer touches from the Lindsey Adelman branching-bubble chandelier to floating volcanic marble cabinetry and a remote Jetmaster, mirrored fireplace define this space.
A gourmet kitchen impresses with the continuation of volcanic marble, integrated Miele appliances and smoked mirror splashbacks which are also repeated in the adjoining laundry/butler’s. Or take things outdoors with a BBQ kitchen and automatic shade awning ready for relaxed entertaining in the northern sun. Landscaped to be virtually maintenance free the rear garden also hosts the fully-automated, salt-chlorinated, solar heated pool boosted with a heat pump for year round use as well as an open air shower to rinse off after a dip in the bay. Beyond this secluded space a glassed double remote garage with a top-floor fourth bedroom suite, home office or retreat.
The upper level continues to inspire with three further bedrooms and two luxurious bathrooms including one bedroom with a dramatic ‘basket-weave’ travertine wall. The rear set master is retreat-like with its own venetian plaster feature wall plus Jardan pendants, fitted dressing room and dual vanity en suite with heated towel rail. Storage is prioritised featuring streamlined solutions in every room, while security is paramount with an app operated, 5-camera CCTV surveillance system remotely linked to the intercom, front gate and garage.
Addressing every aspect of high-end, low maintenance living, this state of the art home boasts a long list of extras from zoned air conditioning/heating and continuous solar hot water to 100% wool carpets, Porcelain tiling with a shimmering pattern flowing from the front door through the house, black-out blinds and sheers. Also 5000 litre underground water storage tank servicing the pool, garden and toilets, automated irrigation, floating Ironbark bench seat and feature garden lighting.
Savour Elwood’s easy-care lifestyle with the peace and privacy of surrounding blue chip suburbs just footsteps to the sparkling foreshore, parks, ovals and Elwood Bathers as well as Ormond Road’s vibrant cafes, gourmet eateries and boutique shopping.
