Rooms with a view An exclusive home set in a curated garden, resting sympathetically on the north side of Mount Macedon. Tarraleah is a 3.28 Ha (8.1 acres) property featuring a stunning home set in a parkland style garden with the luxury of having the Macedon Regional Park as its only neighbour. The home faces true north with the H-Shaped building footprint fostering two landscaped courtyards. The build is of rendered block work and galvanised steel and copper panels. The home has multiple living areas, the heart being the open kitchen/living and dining room featuring a contemporary galley style kitchen with island bench, large dining area and living room with a Cheminees Philippe wood heater set in a feature stone wall. A second separate living room is suitable for recreational use including TV, piano, quiet reading, or general entertaining. It includes built-in cupboards with fitted tea-making facilities and a bar refrigerator teamed with two banquettes to provide for flexible use if additional guest accommodation is required. Downstairs features a games room suitable for rumpus/gym or billiards or for easy conversion into a home office or theatre room. The accommodation features a gorgeous master suite facing north with built-in wardrobes plus an en-suite bathroom with accessible balcony overlooking the garden. Two further guest bedrooms, also facing north, have built-in wardrobes and shared large bathroom with a garden balcony. Other features include a home office with built in cabinetry, separate bathroom/powder room and mudroom, two car garage, workshop and mower-garage. Outside, the garden consists of about 2 Ha of "formal" garden and 1.2 Ha of mature eucalypts and other natives. There are four 170-year-old specimen trees, including a Sitka Spruce, a Douglas Fir, a Norwegian Spruce and a European Cedar. More recent plantings include two Wollemi Pines, a group of Crepe Myrtles and a curved hedge of Hornbeam Trees. The landscape near the house, including feature rockwork at the house and the front gate was designed by the late Grant Saltmarsh. It includes a mix of exotic and native species, with Japanese maples providing colour contrasts throughout. Mounding and plantings have been used to create large garden rooms around the property where trimmed bushes are used to form colour and texture contrasts together with incidental garden sculptures. For recreational activities large expanses of lawn have been retained and a 5- hole frisbee golf course has been constructed. Other features include a sealed driveway, LPG gas, a 70,000-litre underground rainwater tank, gas hydronic heating, underground power supply from Mount Macedon Road, reverse cycle air conditioners and a built-in sound system throughout the house for music or radio. This is an exceptional opportunity to secure an elegant property within 10 minutes to Woodend, freeway and rail to Melbourne, 35 minutes to Melbourne airport and of course all the natural wonder of the Macedon Ranges.
