‘Highfield’ - Simply Peerless
Thoughtfully conceived by world renowned architect Gary George and beautifully bespoke by its very nature, this richly textured home combines timber, glass and stone amidst an impressive 21 acre (approx) landscape of lush, gently undulating land, designed by John Patrick, offering breathtaking rural and Western Port views. At one with its natural environment, the weathered Teak facade provides a perfect introduction to a warmly inviting, tactile interior showcasing Castlemaine slate, Eco stone and European Oak, where floor to ceiling glass ensures an intimate connection to the spectacular outdoor spaces. Beyond soaring 12ft ceilings, a perfectly appointed kitchen flows seamlessly into the gallery inspired living and dining zone warmed by a two-way stone fireplace in gentle, muted tones, with a wall of glass introducing an expansive entertaining deck surrounding a stunning infinity pool. Five beautifully appointed bedrooms are divided over two separate wings for ultimate flexibility, and offer luxurious family and guest accommodation with features including four sublime travertine bathrooms, adjoining living areas, outdoor access and a stunning master bedroom wrapped around awe inspiring rural vistas. Comprehensively appointed with hydronic heating, air conditioning, alarm and all the features you would expect from a property of this calibre, there’s also a gymnasium, superbly landscaped gardens, bore water and extensive water storage capacity, plus large machinery/hay shed. Perfectly located just an hour from Melbourne and close to Village shops, renowned restaurants and wineries, beaches and golf courses, ‘Highfield’ is widely regarded as one of the Peninsula’s most exceptional estates.
