Kilmore French Baroque stunner dazzles buyers
‘Unmatched’ offering to set new benchmark for Mitchell Shire suburb
A potential record-breaker has hit the market in Kilmore, sending a flutter through the small country town located 60km north of Melbourne.
Offering a touch of Toorak in a country setting, the French Baroque-style showpiece makes an eye-catching statement on a sprawling 4846sq m block at 28 Curry Road.
Priced at $2.99 million, the palatial 74-squares home soars over two luxurious levels with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and multiple living areas.
Undeniably Kilmore's most spectacular property, it caught the eye of buyers the minute it was listed for sale, according to Barry Plant Mitchell Shire agent Kieran Knight.
“We are breaking new ground with this property, which is unmatched in Kilmore,” he said.
“It offers the best of both worlds - country living with city style.”
Built by award-winning Metricon Homes less than a year ago for the sellers who are moving interstate, the sophisticated home displays a family friendly floorplan and quality fittings at every turn.
“It is a unique home with all the bells and whistles,” Mr Knight said.
“It’s tailor-made for keen entertainers or a multi-generational family.”
A grand columned entrance opens to a foyer that would not look out of place in a five-star hotel with its gleaming porcelain tiles and decorative wall panels.
The eye is drawn to an exquisite wrought-iron staircase, rich redgum floorboards, and high ceilings with detailed plasterwork and dazzling crystal light fittings.
Tall windows adorned with chic plantation shutters and a glass wall soaring to the roof bring in ample light while framing idyllic views of the verdant landscape.
There is a formal lounge room, a casual family and meals hub, study, an upstairs rumpus room, plus a home office or theatre room that offers a gold-class cinematic experience.
A Michelin-starred chef will be inspired in the epicurean kitchen with premium appliances, stone benchtops, plentiful storage and bench space, plus a discreet butler’s pantry.
Offering the perfect venue for a celebration, the sheltered alfresco terrace overlooks a resort-style, solar-heated pool and spa, sweeping lawns and a children’s playground.
Complete with a private balcony, the main bedroom is an indulgent retreat with its sumptuous ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and dressing room.
Three more bedrooms and two bathrooms are tucked upstairs, while the fifth bedroom and ensuite is nestled at ground level, ideal for guests or elderly parents.
Ducted heating and refrigerated cooling, central vacuuming, in-floor heating, and a gas-operated fireplace ensure a comfortable lifestyle.
Other features include a powered concrete shed and a 112,000L rainwater tank with a filtration system.
The property is in a prestigious pocket near esteemed schools, Kilmore East Railway Station, village shops, parks and the Hume Freeway.
