Property Of The Week: 1222 Mornington Flinders Road, Main Ridge, VIC
This architecturally designed lakehouse makes for the perfect idyllic residence for personal tree change or holiday hideaway on the Mornington Peninsula.
Coined Dam House by architectural studio Pleysier Perkins, this contemporary country compound sits on a rolling 18.37ha between Main Ridge and Red Hill.
Its peaceful lakeside setting makes the residence an idyllic spot for a personal tree change or holiday hideaway on the Mornington Peninsula. Just listed with Marco Santos of Peninsula Sotheby’s International Realty, the home has a price guide of $9 million to $9.6 million.
Described by the Pleysier Perkins team as “an exercise in the experiential aspects of place making” the peninsula property “responds quietly and confidently to its setting”. Inspired by mid-century themes, walls of double glazed glass with warm timber trims complement the bushland backdrop but also seamlessly slide back to connect with mother nature from almost every room.
Inside the vaulted ceilings offer up a soaring sense of space to compete with the great outdoors while the open-plan living and dining zone dishes up plenty of room for grand scale or more intimate entertaining. Continuing the story of inviting the natural elements in, the modern kitchen has slabs of Verde Alpi marble with a brushed bronze splashback. There are also the quintessential European appliances expected of a home of this calibre and a butler’s pantry perfectly suited to the avid home chef or party planner.
Continuing the mid century vibe, a sunken lounge with custom leather suite is comfortably warmed by a gas fireplace and even the kids have their own place to play by the fire in the lower-floor living area.
Accommodation is conveniently placed over two separate wings and includes five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a home office.
Step outside and the vast deck surrounds the 16m pool and spa with yet another retreat featuring a bespoke sunken fire-pit zone. Further features across the impressive site include unique Matt Hill sculptures, a championship-sized tennis court, a lake for rowing, an artist’s studio, fully equipped barbecue terrace, plus a sauna with adjoining bathroom.
The property has been set up with the potential for a number of future endeavours with a three-bay machinery shed, fenced and water-fed paddocks ideal for livestock, plus there is ample water storage including a bore.
Bonus features at the home include a CCTV, alarm, Tesla charger, heated floors, a Nest system, commercial-grade air-conditioning, and three-phase power.
