The Ultimate Resort on 2,230sqm
31 Holyrood Street, Hampton
Welcome to one of Melbourne's best resort-style homes, where space, style and light are complemented by outstanding design and construction. A private world of indulgence on 2,230 square metres (approx.), this six-bedroom builder's own home offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Bayside living at its most magnificent. Grand-scale living rooms look out to the north-south tennis court and self-cleaning pool, and are marvels of design and fitout with soaring walls of glass, ironbark floors, automated louvres, and high ceilings. Designed by acclaimed architect John Lochhead, three north-facing interconnected wings offer excellent family zoning and a 15-car basement garage is an inspired inclusion. The best finishes and fitout are standard, with a state-of-the-art kitchen featuring stainless steel and blackheart sassafras timber benches, integrated Liebherr refrigeration, large walk-in pantry, and huge storage. The cinema room/library can be your private retreat, the home office is a joy to work in with custom joinery and serene garden views and each wing looks onto private gardens featuring Queensland bottle trees. Few homes can boast such a vast garden and world-class outdoor living. There's an undercover dining area, huge areas of decking, raised beds for vegetable growing, an adventure playground, inground trampoline, chicken run and coop, and a bathroom next to the heated pool. Slab marble and travertine floors are standard in the luxury bathrooms, there's European hydronic heating and 47,000 litres of water storage connected to the pool, garden irrigation and toilets. Every feature you could wish for and more is here, including two garages, large laundry, cloakroom with concealed storage, ducted vacuum, ceiling speakers, automated blinds, hand-finished set plaster walls, and first-class construction. Metres from the beach, close to schools and near Hampton Street's cafes and shopping. Ultra-private and exclusive, this landmark home is for viewing strictly by appointment only.
