Wonga Park 134 Jumping Creek Road
A Private Masterpiece with Cityscape Views
When the New Year’s Eve fireworks take centre-stage in the city you will be sitting pretty, taking poll position welcoming in the new year from the comfort of your own balcony. The most amazing views that reach all the way to the CBD can be seen from this magnificent home in exclusive Wonga Park, in particular from the top floor master suite and adjoining retreat, and from the lower level West facing living room and bedroom. Be prepared for endless surprises from this substantial 10-acre approx. property set amongst one of Melbourne’s most desired suburbs which offers access to many quality schools in neighbouring Croydon, including Luther College and Yarra Valley Grammar. Picturesque Warrandyte and its renowned Yarra river are moments down the hill where the enjoyment of local cafes, specialty shops and nurseries can be enjoyed.
A humble environment for a family to grow up in, and with the added benefit of bus services in the area and nearby Chirnside Park or Eastland shopping centres close by, this magical hideaway is so close to all the necessary amenities. For city commuters, the Eastern Freeway is a leisurely drive from here too. Extended and modernised a few years back by the current owners, the almost 80sqr residence presents a showcase of exuberant living and entertaining qualities.
Welcomed by a formal double door entrance hall with a staircase that leads to the top floor where you’ll find the private master bedroom with retreat and ensuite bathroom, the main floor is dedicated to provide the family and guests with an enticing selection of living areas, including a formal lounge room with an adjoining formal dining room that will accommodate the grandest of dinner parties or Christmas lunches.
Through another set of double doors, the main open plan family room and connecting kitchen make the indoor/outdoor connection to the covered portico. Not a penny spared, the kitchen is a testament to what makes a room functional, luxurious and timeless, whilst maintaining a social connection with the household. Luxe Granite bench tops, a huge walk in pantry, 2 Pak cabinetry and SMEG and Fisher & Paykel appliances are featured, and with the casual dining area around the corner, it’s designed perfectly to cater to all living spaces. Unique Tempest hardwood timber floors are a striking feature throughout much of the home with new carpet in some of the rooms, including in the rumpus and bedroom found on the lower level.
In all there are seven bedrooms featured throughout the home, along with a study and seven bathrooms, most of which flaunt Granite counter tops, and the master bathroom also includes a corner spa bath. Various forms of heating and cooling in the home include two Coonara style wood fires, an open fire, reverse cycle heating and air conditioning and ducted refrigerated heating and cooling. Just as resplendent outdoors, this property certainly knows how to make a good impression.
A haven for outdoor entertaining, there are multiple areas to relax, dine and entertain, including inside the entertaining room adjacent to the salt chlorinated in ground pool. A built in spit roast is a talking point when catering for guests, whilst the addition of a 12x12 studio/games room with its own bathroom and kitchenette provide for those family members entering adult hood and want some independence, or for live in grandparents, guests or simply adding extra dimension to living options. Equally ideal for the home business with its separate entrance. It’s a flexible addition and is positioned above the eight car garage. There is covered car accommodation for 18 vehicles and endless off road parking space.
Young children are well-considered too. The dedicated play ground as you come down the driveway will win the hearts of youngsters. There is also a 5kw solar system and multiple water tanks and shedding. Ideal for tradies with a separate driveway for larger vehicles and equipment and ample storage areas. A property that simply is a must see!
