AS MAGNIFICENT AS IT SOUNDS
House - Property ID: 955373
Toolangi is a light filled, north facing, architect designed four bedroom plus study home on one and a quarter acres (approx.) in a prized location only minutes’ drive from Lilydale. The architectural vision of Aldo Bellemo along with recent renovations have created a home that has a contemporary aesthetic with its raked ceilings, angled windows and sloping external roofline following the fall of the land and nestling the building into the garden.
The home connects with its magnificent landscaped garden both visually and physically with glorious garden views from every window and access to the outdoors from all living areas. From the moment you arrive at this property you know that you are somewhere very special. The entrance with its soaring windows and lush garden surrounds is a dramatic and unexpected delight and sets the stage for the rest of this stunning home.
One of three living areas, the elegant formal lounge room and sunken dining room, as with the rest of the home, is sun washed in the winter months but cool and shaded in the heat of summer and have an unsurpassed outlook to the garden. The stylish chefs’ kitchen is well appointed with sleek cabinets, stainless steel European appliances and expansive Caesarstone benchtops, adjacent to the open plan meals and family room with a captivating view across the garden to Toolangi and distant hills. Also, there’s an additional serene sitting room in what could be the children’s or guests’ wing of the home.
Open the door from any of these rooms to the charming, mature and well maintained garden, with meandering paths, stone retaining walls and extensive brick paving including a number of sitting areas ideal for entertaining family and friends or just relaxing and enjoying the vista with a glass of wine. The garden is diverse with significant areas of European trees and shrubs, an Australian native walk, circular vegetable potager and a mini orchard.
The home features four bedrooms plus a study or fifth bedroom, the master with a walk-in robe and luxury ensuite, along with a large modern family bathroom, powder room and renewed laundry. This master crafted home features Daniel Robertson bricks; kiln-dried hardwood frame, classic neutral décor, gas ducted heating, two reverse cycle split systems for year round comfort and an oversized double lock up garage with work shop and mezzanine for additional storage. This property offers a tranquil and secluded retreat in a bushland setting yet within easy access to Lilydale station, Lilydale Lake, the Warburton Trail, quality schools and with a bus stop on the doorstep. It’s a dream come true. Inspection is a must.
