Hepburn 34 Lakeside Drive
A quality country lifestyle with sophistication, style and botanic beauty
Perched majestically amid the privacy of mature Gum trees and aesthetically landscaped terraced gardens, this luxurious home is a high-end haven of luxury for the style conscious. Immersed in the fullness of Hepburn’s famed peaceful ambience and natural beauty on an allotment of approximately 1800 square metres, the sophisticated residence offers picture-perfect living both inside and out.
Frequented by an assortment of local birdlife, the park-like gardens are simply magical with manicured lawns, an alfresco dining area under the stars, and nooks and crannies that delight and surprise at every turn.
Towering cathedral ceilings accentuate the stature and space of the gorgeous interior, featuring soul-soothing verdant outlooks wherever you cast your eye. The lower level contains two open, yet delineated living areas, and two robed bedrooms conveniently placed next to a central bathroom. Head up a few steps to discover a vast open-plan living and dining room and contemporary gourmet kitchen – a joy in which to cook with its wide oven, induction cooktop, stainless-steel dishwasher, stone benchtops and central island bench/breakfast bar to display your culinary creations. Two sets of bi-fold doors deliver a seamless transition to a sizeable wraparound deck to relax, entertain, sip a glass of wine and almost reach out and touch the trees as you admire the views over Doctors Gully.
Expanding to yet another deck, the main bedroom is a sumptuous affair with walk-in robe and an ensuite bathroom with twin vanities and double spa bath with multiple jets providing an amazing hydrotherapy experience.
The need to work from home is catered for by a separately accessed office, excellent space in the garage and your choice of a series of indoor niches, landings, decks, and outdoor venues graced with sculptures.
With a separate laundry, powder room, split-system air conditioners, bamboo and timber flooring and retractable fly wire on all bi-folds and fly screens on the windows, the home is peacefully located minutes from the vibrant country life that this dream locale has to offer. A gentle putt away from Hepburn Golf Course, it’s close to the taste sensations at Hepburn General Store, Harrys Café, Frank and Connies and Rubens Restaurants, the retail therapy at Portal 108, the live music and drinks at the Palais, and the pampering at Hepburn Bathhouse and Peppers Mineral Spas. Castlemaine, Bendigo, Melbourne, Wood End, the Macedon Ranges and Ballarat are also easily accessible.
As a holiday home or permanent home given its ability to accommodate multi-generational living as well as working from home, it’s an idyllic retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.
