Property Of The Week: 4305 Frankston-Flinders Road, Shoreham, VIC
A contemporary coastal abode that offers an enviable designer lifestyle and some of Mornington Peninsula’s best views.
When a property commands such a landmark waterfront location and private beach access, the bar is set pretty high for the house itself.
Crafted by Borland Architecture, ‘Windmill House’ on the exclusive Mornington Peninsula was specifically created to make the most of its enviable position and stunning ocean views.
A contemporary four-bedroom farmhouse, the residence (sat on just over 6ha) was designed so the building would perfectly blend into its natural landscape while complementing the topography and history of the site.
There is a winding pathway meandering from the road, past the reconditioned windmill, right up to the front door. Although the brutalist concrete facade is a striking juxtaposition to the rolling green landscape, the residence’s unique materials were expertly curated to withstand the exposed environment it calls home.
Beyond the grand driftwood door the first impression is the sweeping blue of the water outside capturing Phillip Island, The Nobbies and Seal Rocks. Although the panorama is grand, there is also plenty to be impressed about inside.
Immediately past the entry foyer the floorplan opens to reveal a combined casual family zone with dining and living spaces spilling out via large glass sliding walls to the full-width north-facing deck.
This everyday area has dual fireplaces, a built-in television cabinet and a luxury kitchen complete with a long island bench and full butler’s pantry. For a choice of where to enjoy the great outdoors in all seasons, the kitchen and dining space alternatively opens to a pergola-covered deck and the glamorously Instagram-worthy pool area.
The accommodation has been masterfully considered with a main bedroom wing secluded from the rest of the house and features a private study, personal veranda with expansive water views, plus a walk-in wardrobe, large ensuite with rain shower, steam room and dual vanities.
Two more bedrooms sit at the alternative end of the footprint – boasting ensuites, integrated desks and sliding doors to a shared veranda. One more self-contained bedroom is located just off the secondary entrance.
When entertaining outdoors is off the cards, ‘Windmill House’ features two additional living areas for a family’s peace of mind including a sunken lounge room and a rumpus room.
A modern take on the tradition of a beach house, this property has a long list of mod cons including ducted heating and cooling, triple glazing, double insulation, ducted vacuuming, automated window furnishings and a CCTV security system.
The land consists of two large paddocks with electric fences and a big multipurpose barn, offering fabulous flexibility to customise to your requirements.
‘Windmill House’ in Shoreham is close to all popular Peninsula spots such as Flinders, Red Hill and Balnarring villages and 68 kilometers from Melbourne’s CBD.
$16.5 – $18 million. Listed with Gerald Delany and Andrew Hines of Kay & Burton Flinders; kayburton.com.au
