A romantic echo of the French chateau after which it was named, ‘Bagatelle’ is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom luxury home showcasing a rare grandeur in this coveted beachside locale with views across Port Phillip Bay that are nothing short of breathtaking.
Standing proudly on 968m2 (approx) of groomed grounds overflowing with fragrant roses, manicured hedges, colourful birdlife, gazebos, meandering paths and charmingly inscribed pavers reminiscent of the original Bagatelle, the setting conspires to offer a magical garden wonderland and is one of only a handful of homes backing onto Somerset Drive Reserve.
Crafted with historic reclaimed materials that infuse the residence with timeless character, the split-level floorplan offers an ambient formal lounge with fireplace and secret sub-level staircase, while the 11.5-metre living and dining room on the upper level boasts a deluxe wet-bar complete with gorgeous leadlight panels sourced from the original Queen Victoria Hospital. Flanked in seven sets of French doors, the upstairs open living / dining space opens to the wraparound balcony providing you with the perfect setting to soak up the spectacular bay sunsets.
Downstairs, the lavish master has a lovely bay window and full ensuite while a second wraparound balcony is where you can sit and watch the kids play in the gorgeous manicured gardens. Designed around a rustic 18th century 10-seater dining table, the large kitchen with two pantries, European appliances (including a cast-iron grill) and Kleenmaid dishwasher flaunts every modern convenience.
The unique property also includes a library/study with built-in bookshelves and secretaire, ducted heating and vacuum, evaporative cooling, laundry chute and a double remote garage.
