“Hindson House” c.1870
For the first time in almost half a century, one of the Mornington Peninsula’s finest clifftop properties, Hindson House, is on the market. Set on a sprawling acre of waterfront land in what is widely regarded as the most coveted position in Sorrento, this magnificent limestone residence is unparalleled in panoramic views, sheer scale, and timeless grandeur.
Hindson House has a long and illustrious history, commissioned in 1870 by George Briscoe Kerferd, a distinguished Supreme Court Judge and former Premier of Victoria. Today the house stands as a testament to his opulent vision. Its grandeur is evident from its large, interconnected living areas designed to entertain to its exquisite period details which include open fireplaces, leadlight windows, soaring 14-foot ceilings, grand archways, and original Baltic Pine floors.
Tastefully renovated within its original footprint, the result is a collection of captivating, sun-drenched open areas that can comfortably accommodate families of all sizes.
From the generous entry foyer, a wide central hallway introduces a north-facing living room, a family bathroom, and a guest bedroom with an ensuite. The house then unfolds into a spacious family living space, dining area and open plan kitchen with a large seperate pantry. All these spaces offer views of lush rolling green lawns framing Port Phillip Bay.
Bathed in northern light, these areas harmoniously unite period elegance with modern fixtures and fittings and include a spectacular Calacatta marble island bench, dual kitchen appliances, and exquisite timber-lined joinery that complement the house’s Victorian architectural heritage.
Upstairs, the grandeur continues with five spacious bedrooms, two additional bathrooms, a powder room, and gallery. The two larger front bedrooms plus gallery have spectacular sea views and open on to a traditional Victorian balcony.
There is direct access to the secluded beach, a shared jetty, two boathouses, and picturesque beachfront entertaining areas. Walking distance to Sorrento Park, the Village, and Sorrento Golf Course, this is a rare and unparalleled opportunity to acquire one of the most distinguished properties on the famed Mornington Peninsular clifftop.
