ANBASTIAN PARK – MODERN MASTERPIECE ON 45 BEAUTIFUL ACRES (approx.)
STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
A stunning, immaculately-presented, dramatic, north-facing architect-designed home, uniquely featuring an indoor pool of immense proportions, sits proudly and privately on a magnificent 45 acres (approx.) of fertile land with its lovely mix of well-fenced gently-undulating cleared country and rugged native woodland at the rear. Two massive sheds with mezzanine floors, three-phase power and concrete floors are currently used as a craftsman’s/tradesman’s paradise or can provide secure storage for your vintage car collection. It would also make a stunning converted stable block. The property sits within 5 minutes’ drive of the lovely township of Gisborne.
Modern architecture at its best, the residence is simply breathtaking in its scope and beauty. Designed and supervised by Etha Architecture, the long driveway leads to the home along an avenue of sweeping pear trees. The external, up-thrusting wings of the house dip and dive echoing the stunning landscape surrounds, as do the soaring ceilings within the home which floods natural light throughout. Each room is grandly proportioned with views from every window of the beautiful Mount Bullengarook, the waving treetops and the surrounding peaceful pasture land.
In one wing of the house, you will find 4 bedrooms and fitted with premium-grade blinds and 100% wool carpets. The main palatial bedroom has its very own private verandah with views to the native woodland and private valley; a luxuriously grand ensuite and a large WIR. The other three bedrooms are serviced by a wonderfully-appointed family bathroom (shower and spa). This area of the home is well-heated with zoned heating and cooling, loads of storage spaces and for extra winter warmth, a first-rate combustion heater has also been installed in the wide, auto sensor-lit hallway to this wing.
The hub of the home features a breathtakingly beautiful open-planned kitchen, dining and living area of grand proportions complemented by a true butler’s pantry, induction cook top, dishwasher, another traditional wood heater, and loads of cupboards and drawers. A true entertainer’s delight with its massive kitchen island bench, this vast room has ample space to host all your family and friends. A large and covered BBQ area adjoins and beckons on balmy summer days to relax and enjoy the woodland and gorgeous landscape.
The second wing of the home is truly eye-opening. A massive 18 x 10 metre indoor swimming pool (heated and flood-lit) that captivates and provides year-round potential for exercise and fun for people of all ages. An amazing sound system is linked throughout the entertaining areas that can be controlled from your mobile or tablet device. The dedicated ‘gold class’ theatre room is superbly decorated to mimic the best movie venues. All you need is popcorn!! Beyond that is the large triple lock-up garage. The architectural plans also allow for a council approved second storey if you feel you wish to enlarge the residence further.
The home features security mesh fly wire screens, security cameras, three-phase power, the highest quality argon gas double-glazed windows and window furnishings, zoned heating and refrigerated cooling, and an ambience bespeaking the legacy of its current owners – a proud, beautiful testament to craftsmanship, architectural excellence, attention to detail, amazing depth of foundations, privacy and security.
With over 200,000 litres of water storage in 5 very large tanks, excellent fenced paddocks (ideal for horses with some minor conversions and additions), two dams, lots of timber at the rear and the potential to further enhance this oasis of beauty and quietude, ‘Anbastian Park’ is truly a rarity and testament to the passion, pride and love that has gone into this stunning property. Every little thing has been attended to. The idyllic rural location is private yet close enough to Gisborne with all of its offerings and indeed, the property is nicely positioned for a trip to Melbourne, the airport or Bendigo if you must...
