The inimitable character of iconic builder and mid-century designer Alistair Knox, combined with a flat 1.1 acre allotment, that's positioned in a secluded pocket in Eltham South - ensures Eltham living at it's very best. With the entrance to Westerfolds Park, Yarra River and the fabulous Main Yarra walking/bike trail at your front gate, the lifestyle that this incredible residence offers is unquestionable.

The hallmark features of rustic exposed timbers and vast windows that bring the garden to every room create the soothing ambience throughout this spacious Knox home. Cleverly zoned for family functionality the generous floor plan comprises 6 comfortable bedrooms (master with walk-in robes and ensuite), 2 family bathrooms, study, plus a huge kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and stone benchtops. A plethora of living spaces including an expansive lounge and formal dining precinct enhanced by an incredible stone fireplace, large family room and a zoned children's retreat ensures there is always somewhere to find your own space.

A choice of beautiful outdoor entertaining precincts invites indoor/outdoor living at every opportunity, and the solar heated, lagoon style In-ground pool, built in BBQ, and fire pit area, makes entertaining a breeze. Finishing touches include heating/cooling throughout, open fireplace, perimeter fencing, triple carport, water tanks for the gardens and excellent storage options. Brimming with mud brick appeal on a generous and ultra-private 4,496m2 (approx.) allotment, inspection is an absolute must.
