This stunning Rockland home, located on one of Victoria’s most sought after streets, is the result of a meticulous redevelopment of a former rancher property in 2012. Crafted by one of Victoria’s most prestigious and award-winning boutique home builders, Aryze Developments, the renewal ensured that this family home has both character and charm as well as a luxurious and contemporary feel.
Situated on a 11,094 square foot strata lot, this 3,897 square foot home provides 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a study, 2 kitchens and an oversized double garage. Coved ceilings lend an authentic vintage elegance that blend seamlessly with clean, modern detailing. The expansive living room features a modern gas fireplace with a granite hearth, a built-in Bose surround-sound system, and opens into the spacious dining room. The alcoves, a hallmark of design from the 40s, give the dining area a grand presence, perfect for hosting. On this main floor are also 2 large bedrooms, a study and a gorgeous bathroom.
The entire upper floor, is of brand new construction and is dedicated to a stunning master suite, with a master bedroom, ensuite bathroom, an adjacent dressing area, a spacious sitting/hobby area and additional walk-in storage room. The whole house was refitted with new maintenance-free vinyl windows, solid beech hardwood flooring, and premium triple-latch security exterior doors. All electrical, plumbing and perimeter drains were renewed. The kitchen, all bathrooms, and the foyer have heated Travertine tile floors. Low-profile pot lights provide subtle ambient light. The newly constructed double garage was cleverly designed to have three automatic doors with one bay enabling easy vehicle access to the back garden. The home is heated by a modern high-efficiency, gas fired radiant heating system. The low maintenance landscaping is maturing beautifully thanks to the automatic underground watering system.
The basement suite is entirely self-contained with a separate private entrance and has 2 additional double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, a complete kitchen, laundry, and a walk-in ‘‘cold store” cupboard. The built-in entertainment centre is an amazing additional feature, outshone only by the spa-like bathroom, with Travertine tile throughout and a heated floor and tub surround. Truly a beautiful and unexpected luxury option for a teen or family suite.
