Sitting on a prized hilltop acre and boasting panoramic views to the Kinglake Ranges and glimpses of the CBD, the stunning ‘Villa Bereguardo’ circa 1920 is one of Diamond Creek’s most esteemed original homesteads that has just hit the market.
Destined to be one of the most acclaimed Diamond Creek listings of 2021, this immaculate period treasure has been lovingly restored and cared for since its original construction for wine merchant Mr. Perversi around a century ago. The same company, F.C. Jennings, also built the iconic Diamond Creek Tavern.
It’s easy to see why Mr. Perversi chose the 4,411 sqm (approx.) block to build the homestead, with this elevated allotment offering panoramic vistas.
“It’s so rare to come across a property like this which is not only steeped in such amazing history, but also has been so wonderfully preserved while further offering contemporary upgrades that are utterly spectacular,” said Peter Koiker, Director of Barry Plant Diamond Creek and selling agent for the property. “The blend of period and modern is seamless, and the outdoor entertaining highlights and gardens are quite special. This is a beautiful property and a genuine slice of Diamond Creek history.”
High ceilings, exquisite fireplaces, ornate leadlight windows, striking ceiling detail, and original Baltic pine floors is a nostalgic trip back in time. This property makes fantastic use of its space with generous places to relax, eat, rest, and play, while all your stylish and modern creature comforts are covered including a designer kitchen with Falcon stove and deluxe bathroom with twin showers and a claw foot bath.
This property also promises a heated in-ground pool and spa, poolside rotunda with 10 seater table, alfresco zone with BBQ, relaxing landscaped gardens, single, double and a 5 car garage/shed which is the ultimate ‘Man Cave’ for tradesman and car enthusiasts.
“This is a once in a lifetime property which really does have you feel like you’ve stepped in a time machine. It has so much beauty and a bit of magic to it. We can’t wait for prospective buyers see it for themselves” said Peter Koiker.
