ICONIC ‘MOONYA’ – GRAND ART DECO, LAKE ESTATE ON 5 ACRES
9 Lakeside Drive, Emerald
A place of beauty and tranquillity, ‘Moonya’ is part of the historic Emerald Country Club Estate that dates back to the 1930’s and forms an integral part of the heritage of our area. Purportedly designed by famed architect Harry Norris, and situated in one of Emerald’s most exclusive locations, this Art Deco home is surrounded by a botanical oasis of 5 stunning acres of established gardens including Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Camellias, Japanese Maples, tall tree ferns and a variety of leafy canopy trees creating the most picturesque of settings. Signature Art Deco architecture combines with modern luxuries to create a home of style, grace and functionality. Expansive double glazed windows and high ceilings offer a light filled environment and allow garden views from every angle while parquetry flooring, ornate plasterwork and rich tones add quality and warmth. Designed to fit with both family living and entertaining on a grand scale, the upstairs has both formal and informal areas with living room with open fire, dining room adjoining the Caesar stone kitchen, family room that has floor to ceiling windows and is heated throughout with hydronic heaters. The master suite is serviced by a luxurious two way bathroom complete with spa bath and all bedrooms have quality fully fitted robes. There are four additional bedrooms, one upstairs and the remainder downstairs as well as a sitting/reading area ideal for quiet contemplation. Two sealed driveways provide abundant access and a double garage and carport will house your vehicles or ‘toys’. The romantic setting is worthy of the pages of a magazine and features two trout stocked lakes with lily pads that are reminiscent of a Monet painting and also has a waterfall and walking trails. Settle back on the terrace with a glass of the best and take in the sights and sounds of an abundance of colourful native birds whilst basking in the magical surrounds. Just 45 minutes from Melbourne CBD, there are buses to St Margarets, Haileybury College, Beaconhills and a variety of other highly regarded private and public schools, you can walk to the Emerald Country Resort or a short drive will have you in central Emerald. More than just a property, ‘Moonya’ is your very own piece of paradise.
