1235 West Portland Road, Lower Portland A Grand Australian Estate
Dramatic, peaceful, and exclusive, this stunning property offers an exceptional way of life. The original sandstone home was built in the 1890s by English stonemasons. The acclaimed architect, Timothy Moon 2006, captured the craftsmanship and history of the home and its outbuildings and delivered a home that is perfectly balanced with modern luxury and heritage-inspired aesthetics.
The original sandstone home has been retained and is complete with its original archways, paneled walls, and beautiful fireplaces. The home comprises three elegant bedrooms, a home office or library, and a large TV room with French Doors opening out to a deep wraparound verandah.
The wide glass-framed breezeway links the traditional wing with the more recent additions to the home. The floor-to-ceiling glass fills the interiors with light and allows vistas over the beautiful gardens. The breezeway opens out to the impressive alfresco terraces and lavish resort-style, solar-heated infinity pool looking out over the remarkable gardens to the Colo River.
The open plan is created for effortless living, relaxing, and entertaining with family and friends. The luxury gourmet kitchen adjoins the living zones and is finished with thick stone benchtops, a large island bench, an oversized high-end stainless cooker with double oven and gas cooktop as well as a butler's pantry.
The main residence includes three generous bedroom suites with an opulent luxury master suite. The master is truly stunning and has a substantial stone-appointed ensuite with a separate toilet and a large walk-in robe. There is also a stunning three-bedroom, two-bathroom single-level weatherboard cottage which offers accommodation for guests or extended family. The cottage has been recently renovated and is of a substantial size with spacious living and dining, a separate lounge, a sun-washed sunroom or study, a flowing deck, and a master with ensuite.
The property also includes a self-contained studio with a bathroom and kitchenette plus a large multi-purpose bespoke built shed with expansive loft spaces, a bathroom, storage cupboards, a workshop or shed, and an adjoining covered oversized double carport.
This is a property that is for people that enjoy life in the outdoors and also love to have people come and stay. It truly is your very own piece of paradise.
