One-of-a-kind family home dazzles in dress circle pocket

An award-winning showpiece up for auction in Ringwood East has caught the attention of discerning buyers.

A standout in the exclusive Tintern precinct, the three-bedroom house on 883sq m at 1 Vista Avenue, is expected to achieve $1.5-$1.6 million when it goes under the hammer on March 23.

Homebuyers seeking something special have been attracted to the property, according to Barry Plant Heathmont-Ringwood director Louise Carrigg.

“It’s a great family home in a coveted area,” she said.

“I love the fact that it’s different and it stands out architecturally.”

Ms Carrigg anticipates three to four bidders to compete at the auction and is expecting a strong result.

“There is keen interest from couples and young families,” she said.

“They have been drawn to the functional and architectural components of property.”

The winner of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects’ merit award for Outstanding Architecture New Housing (Victoria), the house displays a distinctive style.

“The design takes in all the elements and ensures a free-flowing indoor-outdoor lifestyle,” Ms Carrigg said.

“It draws the garden in and produces a serene feel.”

Creating a calm haven for rest and relaxation, living areas and bedrooms open to the beautifully landscaped split-level garden with lawn, paved areas and a bubbling spa.

Dappled light filters through the treetops illuminating exterior spaces, which are ideal for entertaining or children’s play areas.

The interior has an airy environment created by glass walls and soaring ceilings with exposed Oregon beams.

Tasmanian Oak floors, a freestanding Jetmaster fireplace and timber accents bring character and warmth to living spaces.

The property has changed hands once since it was built in the early 1980s, and the current owners who have lived there for more than 30 years are downsizing.

“They have loved the artistic nature of the house,” Ms Carrigg said.

The house features a selection of updates, including a stylish kitchen renovation that blends perfectly with the property’s original allure.

Sleek Caesarstone benchtops, soft-close cabinets and a waterfall breakfast bench complement quality Westinghouse, DeLonghi and Bosch appliances. A pantry with pocket doors and a breakfast station provides extra storage space.

Ideal for those working from home, the spacious study has built-in cupboards and shelves, along with bi-fold doors that retract to connect with the lounge and dining domain.

Bedrooms are thoughtfully configured for comfortable family living, including two generously proportioned children’s bedrooms with built-in wardrobes near the main bathroom.

Parents are pampered in the private main suite, with a walk-through wardrobe to the ensuite, and french doors to a sheltered outdoor sitting area.

The location of the home is a major drawcard, according to Ms Carrigg.

“The property is in a tightly held area sought after for its leafy streets and proximity to quality schools,” Ms Carrigg said.

Eastwood Primary School, Tintern Grammar and Ringwood Secondary College are within walking distance, while there is easy access to Aquinas College, Bedford Road shops, train station and buses.

Maroondah Hospital, Eastland Shopping Centre plus EastLink are also nearby.
