Perfectly positioned and proportioned for BnB, wellness retreat (STCA), accommodation or large extended family. This landmark property offers tranquil surrounds, spectacular views in walking distance to the Panton Hill township.
â??The Crestâ??(circa 1873), a landmark in the district and one of the first homes to be constructed in Panton Hill, offers inspiring historical grandeur in generously sized interiors, enhanced by immaculately preserved details.
Having undertaken multiple guises, it was most notably a very successful private boarding school and a weekender to a former Lord Mayor of Melbourne (and owner of Young and Jacksons), Sir Stephen Joseph Morrel.
Historical character and touches of refined contemporary elegance blend seamlessly, thanks to a passionate and sympathetic attention to detail in its recent rejuvenation by its architect owner.
Ideally sited on 21 acres (approx.) and fenced into 5 paddocks, The Dandenongâ??s, Kinglake Ranges, Mt Disappointment and Mt Macedon provide a perfect backdrop to an exceptional array of accommodation, living and entertainment spaces.
A stunning banquet room commissioned by Morrell and said to be the largest room in a private home within the district at the time, is just part of a floorplan introducing at least 5 bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and as many as 8 living areas.
Fireplaces, soaring timber lined ceilings, bespoke doors and vast areas of Baltic pine floors all impeccably restored and maintained, add to the appeal of an intelligent flexible layout which includes a Bosch equipped granite finished kitchen with large walk in larder.
Introducing options to zone living and accommodation areas to suit the largest of families, it will appeal to those seeking multi-generational living, who enjoy hosting guests in an Air Bâ??nâ??B format or even professionals seeking to work from home.
Literally seconds from the Panton Hill Village, a short drive to Hurstbridge for its cafes, brunches and stress-free rail commute to the CBD and within easy reach of the Yarra Valley, this increasingly rare relic of refined style and grace is an opportunity not to be missed!
