107 Alton Road, Mount Macedon
Built by the current owners in 1995, this wonderful 5 bedroom family home has a host of features that the modern architect insists on - double glazing, double brick (downstairs), suspended slab upstairs for thermal mass, top-grade insulation in walls and ceilings, generously-proportioned bedrooms, lovely views, extensive decking, privacy, parents’ ensuite/family bathroom (plus powder room and an extra family bathroom), study, gym or theatre room (potential for self-contained accommodation), pretty and rewarding garden – it simply has the lot.
Upstairs you’ll find two bedrooms (BIR’s) plus bathroom, a magnificent combination of kitchen/meals/sitting room (with peaceful garden views and adjacent al fresco decking area) and a massive formal sitting/dining room complex with welcoming combustion heater, long views and access to the elevated balcony through the sliding doors. This whole area is memorable, comfortable, light-filled and typical of the attention to detail of the current owners.
Proceed downstairs and you’ll discover the large main bedroom (WIR) with semi-ensuite/family bathroom (spa bath) with private and restful views over the garden, 2 further bedrooms with BIR’s and tranquil views, a large laundry complex with loads of cupboard space and yet another surprise, a study plus an amazing theatre/gym room with its own separate entrance/exit. Indeed, this section of the house could easily be set up as separate accommodation.
The well-terraced gardens are rewarding throughout the seasons with many exotic plants (rhododendrons and ash trees in particular) and provide a range of vivid autumn and spring colours – typical of the invigorating Mount Macedon climate. A bitumenised driveway with formal entrance and exit allows easy access to the single garage/workshop and the marvellous 4 car carport. There is ample room for a caravan or boat. A green house, chook shed and some fruit trees are further additions which help make living here extremely comfortable.
This is a brilliant family home with many features that will have broad-range family appeal.
