Set in a premium, coveted pocket of Research, this impressive, immaculately presented family home crowns an easily managed property that unfolds across almost 6 glorious acres that are country quiet yet city close.

Filled with natural light, the warm and welcoming interiors laid out across two spacious levels and complemented by a wide choice of alfresco options, including one with spa, ensure connectivity to panoramic views across the district that invoke relaxation, seclusion, and a brilliant, ever-changing background to daily living.

Rendered for easy care, freshly painted and showcasing quality fixtures, fittings and finishes throughout the diverse and versatile interiors, the living spaces include a rumpus room with bar and terrace access, formal lounge with woodfire heater, formal dining and a vast open-plan living zone. Walls of bi-fold glass tempt you out to a wrap-around alfresco space where you can entertain or relax with wine, a coffee and visiting birds and wildlife while taking in the sunset.

Anchoring this expansive sanctuary is a sleek contemporary kitchen where a mirrored splashback, stone tops, glossy cabinetry and quality Smeg and Miele appliances unite in a space that looks as good as it cooks.

Partnering with the living spaces are the well-proportioned bedrooms. The main enjoys all the benefits of a designer detailed stone finished ensuite (floor to ceiling tiles), two share an equally impressive family bathroom, while the fourth with its own ensuite shares the ground floor with the rumpus, making it ideal for teens, in-laws or guests.

An all-important home office will easily meet the needs of those working from home.

Two double garages (one high enough for the caravan/boat/float) sit under the roofline, while a second garage/workshop with pallet racking introduces spaces for multiple cars, trail bikes, farm machinery, and the supplies for your home-based business. Alternatively, they could be easily converted to stables, a tack area and a feed room if you decide to introduce horses.

Inclusions of rabbit-proof fencing to the 1- acre (approx.) house paddock, remote gates to all three driveways, ducted heating and multiple split system units, 21 solar panels, extensive use of stainless steel for balustrading to elevated decks, remote, powered exterior blinds, automatic irrigation system via the stocked dam and tanks, veggie beds, fruit trees, holding yards for cattle and NBN connected enhance the living experience!

As does a location that puts Eltham College and the bus to Warrandyte, Eltham, Diamond Creek just a few minutes-walk away and has you central to horse and pony clubs, secondary, primary and pre-schools, welcoming Research Village, the centre of Eltham, Eastland, Doncaster and the Yarra Valley!
