Property Of The Week: 2 Yarra Grove Hawthorn, VIC
A stunning inner-Melbourne ‘resort’ that riffs on mid-century architecture to deliver a five-star lifestyle with exclusive Yarra River access.
A private resort perched on the banks of the mighty Yarra River, this contemporary waterfront estate expertly blends the talents of celebrated architects Powell & Glenn with the expertise of Visioneer Builders and Robert Boyle Landscape Design.
Spread across 2,963sqm of carefully curated grounds, the modern manor features a host of five-star inclusions from the personal riverside pontoon to the grass tennis court and heated pool.
The lavish five-bedroom house, which has come to market with a guide of $24 million – $26 million, has been designed with a nod to mid-century architecture. There are expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass panels used to maximise the enviable river outlook and curtains of established trees. This crafty salute to period property has been matched with 21st century elements such as concrete, oak and black steel elements alongside a host of sophisticated designer touches throughout.
Over three levels connected by a lift, the house has multiple rooms for entertaining and everyday living, with several alfresco breakout spaces for all seasons and plenty of privacy.
The ground floor is home to a sleek stainless steel and Dolomite granite kitchen fit for grand scale gatherings with Miele appliances, an integrated fridge/freezer, butler’s pantry and convenient cool room.
An open casual living, dining and lounge space has exposed concrete walls contrasted by the softness of the treetops outside almost invited in by swathes of glass. This entertainment zone is punctuated by a striking two-way fireplace separating the informal from the formal.
The same level also has a long terrace complete with barbecue, dining and lounge zones as well as a palatial main bedroom featuring a dressing room and deluxe ensuite.
An entire lower ground floor is dedicated to three more bedrooms with private bathrooms and terrace access, a large multipurpose rumpus room with wet bar, spacious gym and temperature-controlled wine display room.
For guests to feel at home, the unique property also boasts an independent bedroom on the upper floor with an ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and balcony. There is also an expansive home office with separate entry, a neighbouring meditation room and two garages to house up to five cars.
Outside the grounds have been transformed into a Palm Springs inspired tropical garden with a self-cleaning solar and gas heated pool and spa, a luxury pool house with full kitchen, fireplace, bathroom and heated terrace. Beyond the grass tennis court, a riverside deck leads to the private river pontoon.
Packed with mod cons, the Yarra Grove property has CCTV, keypad entry, video intercom, smart home automation, hydronic and underfloor heating, air-conditioning, ducted vacuuming and an under house storeroom.
