A piece of the countryside in the heart of Melbourne

Enjoy country life only a few kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD in Ascot Vale, with this incredible 771 square metre four-bedroom plus study, four-bathroom property with a price guide of $2.5 – $2.75 million.

Leave stress down the street as you roll down the 100m-long dirt road that leads to your four-car garage and three storey home, where you will soak up 200 degree uninterrupted views over the Riverside Golf Course, Maribyrnong river and surrounding parklands.

“It’s hard to describe how magical it is here. I know I’m in the city but it feels like I’m in the country,” said the property’s vendor Michael Benedetti who is also director of ‘Multiskill’, the construction company that managed the property’s recent renovation.

“We are unlikely to get one car up this road each month. People think it’s a driveway but it’s a road that only goes to this house.”

“That’s the best thing about it, it’s so peaceful. You can hang outside and you would never imagine you’re a few minutes from the city,” Benedetti said, adding that three dedicated outdoor areas capitalise on that.

“We completely overhauled the entire property during the renovation which was completed nine months ago. We wanted to do the location justice,” Benedetti said.

He described near-new bathrooms with premium finishes and a master bedroom complete with walk-in robe.

On the ground floor a light-filled dining and living area flows onto the outdoor terrace complete with integrated barbecue.

For cooler months the kitchen features dual Miele ovens, a walk-in pantry, integrated fridge and ‘Calcutta’ Caesarstone benchtops.

Benedetti said that no expense was spared on the renovation with features such as jarrah and Tasmanian oak floorboards, Terrazzo bathroom tiles and a feature wall made from ‘convict brick’ recycled from some of Melbourne’s earliest buildings.

Selling agent, Jim Christou from Ray White Footscray said “I believe it is one of the best contemporary homes in Ascot Vale, you can see that it was built by a perfectionist.”

“It offers a wonderful relaxed feeling as soon as you walk in the door. You really want to stay and soak it up,” he said, describing features such a theatre room with dedicated bathroom and bar area, Jacuzzi, and wine cellar.

Adding to the lure are excellent nearby education institutions, including Essendon Grammer and Victoria University, serviced by public transport a short walk from the property’s doorstep.

“It really is one of a kind. There is simply no other house that offers what this does,” Christou said.
