Akehurst master stroke creates one of the Peninsula’s finest
This stately property of over an acre (4,723 sqm) on two separate titles enjoys a coveted location in the exclusive Portsea cul de sac overlooking Percy Cerutty oval. A pinnacle of timeless style with every feature and material of the highest quality, this property presents the ultimate family compound opportunity for distinguished multi-generational living.
Constructed to fastidious standards by Alan Pitman of Pitman Builds, this flawlessly finished showpiece by the acclaimed designer Stephen Akehurst boasts two distinct buildings separated by a central garden and 15m pool.
The Master residence delivers breathtaking communal spaces including a fully equiped chef’s kitchen with butler’s pantry. Dining and living room with open fire are joined by two sumptuous master suites.
A private parent’s retreat downstairs with gas log fire and cellar/bar is an inspired addition, while a stone terrace runs the length of the building and serves as a spectacular setting for alfresco dining with an integrated BBQ, pizza oven and wood fire.
Across the pool, extended families are superbly accommodated in the second residence providing three further bedrooms, two bathrooms, a stunning living space with gas log fire, along with a large lower floor rumpus. Basement & security parking for multiple vehicles is provided.
Vast landscaped grounds by Robert Boden are exquisite, featuring a championship mod grass tennis court, sweeping lawns, established hedges, stone paving and beautiful planting that softens an otherwise formal aesthetic.
The vacant land of some 1,278 sqm at 20 Leyden offers a blank canvas to extend the family compound even further with another substantial family home on its own title with direct access to Percy Cerutty Reserve.
This extraordinary private compound residence is designed to inspire and built to endure, promising to create memories of the ideal year round coastal lifestyle for generations to come.
Features include; recycled hardwood flooring, hydronic heating, fully integrated refrigeration, Paul Bocuse oven, heated self - cleaning saltwater pool & ample off street car and boat parking.
