Seclusion, Serenity And A Yarra River Outlook

The Environmental Living Zone, no domestic pets allowed but plenty of native animals to enjoy.

Named after a group of small islands in a bend in the Yarra and referred to by the locals as “The Bend”, The Bend Of Islands delivers a uniquely tranquil, nature focused existence just 30 k’s from the CBD.
The very last house on Henley Road, this magnificent mudbrick enjoys arguably the most exclusive address in this exclusive pocket. Secluded, serene and set on 2.5 acres (Approx.) of breathtaking beauty, it includes the rarity of direct access to the Yarra River which makes up one of its boundaries.
Offering water features among stunning artisan landscaping, stunning in it’s simplicity and scale, it introduces an expansive decked and paved alfresco precinct. Complete with outdoor kitchen and with sections covered in shade-sail, it delivers brilliant entertainment spaces against awe inspiring views of the Yarra and its untouched surrounds.
Architect designed by Ross Henry and craftsman built, the sprawling interior spaces, filled with natural light thanks to a series of clerestory, Shugg and floor to ceiling windows, are enhanced by reclaimed brick floors, revitalised timber beams and an interesting mix of curved and straight walls. A solid timber kitchen, family meals, living room and rumpus room provide plenty of options to enjoy when you aren’t out taking in that view.
They are complemented by up to five bedrooms, the main with a marble finished ensuite the others enjoying a family bathroom with spa. A welcome bonus to the main house is a studio/office/teen-retreat. Fitted with a mezzanine and a storeroom, its applications are endless.
A fitted laundry, wood fire heating, multiple split system units, double carport under roof line and a woodstore and a series of sheds add to the appeal.
