Resort Style Living in Prestigious Homebush Estate
Positioned at the end of a welcoming tree lined drive; this 60 square luxurious Luke Drummond built home provides the ideal private sanctuary for today’s modern family. Set on five stunning acres only 12 minutes from the cosmopolitan heart of the Bendigo CBD; the property presents as a high end resort complete with beautifully manicured parklands, circular drive with grand portico and sparkling salt water pool with sculptural water feature that can be viewed from all three wings of the meticulously planned ultra-modern home.
Everything about the home is on a grand scale including the “Gold Class” home cinema; complete with foyer, plush red carpet, tiered leather reclining seating, floor to ceiling curtaining and state of the art projection and surround sound technology. No expense has been spared. The unique and highly considered U-shaped design of the home cleverly divides the internal floor plan into three separate wings that can be opened up or closed off to reflect the changing needs of its inhabitants.
The striking vaulted ceiling entrance is flooded with natural light due to the floor to ceiling framed view of the lap pool, water feature and bush beyond. This central wing houses the main family living zone with recently installed free standing solid fuel heater to draw the family together on those cold Winter nights and rainy Sunday mornings. This room wraps around into the open plan kitchen and dining room overlooking the fully enclosed side yard and children’s playground.
The galley kitchen is modern and sleek, providing the perfect space to cook as well as entertain. Features include stainless steel appliances, waterfall island bench with double sink, dishwasher and frosted glass splashback, induction cooktop, electric oven and extensive cabinetry including a butler’s pantry with floor to ceiling shelving and room for a refrigerator. Sliding doors open seamlessly on to the outdoor living room complete with roller blinds, ceiling fan, glass balustrade and outdoor theatre capacity. Ideal for lingering in the outdoors long after the sun has gone down.
The children’s wing cleverly includes a second master with ensuite for parents wishing to be close by for little ones. The second bedroom is also double in size with a huge third room that could double either as a shared bedroom or playroom. All three bedrooms in this wing have built in robes and are serviced by a powder room, separate toilet, three piece family bathroom with dual vanity, bath and shower and large family laundry.
The parent’s wing is the ultimate adult’s retreat housing the master suite with large walk in robe and ensuite with separate toilet, double shower and his and her vanities, separate glass enclosed living room, guest powder room, second large games room and home cinema. A glazed hall separates the adjoining home office from the rest of this wing; ideal for a thriving home business.
