Extensive use of natural stone and timber ensures this new Park Orchards house blends in with its striking surroundings.
The premier home’s 4119sq m block also features native landscaping, along with resort-style features including a pool, a tennis court and an alfresco deck with a built-in barbecue and an outdoor spa.
Barry Plant Doncaster East’s Theo Politis said the three-level residence at 19 Dirlton Cres was expertly designed and built by its architect-owner.
It’s now on the market with a $3-$3.3 million price guide that, if achieved, would make it one of the priciest homes to ever sell in the leafy northeastern suburb.
The house notably contains an upstairs “kids’ retreat” with four bedrooms and its own living space, that’s separate from the parents’ ground-floor main bedroom, featuring a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.
“The owner designed and built the property for himself. He’s got three children, so it was built for a large family,” Mr Politis said.
“It’s appealing to people from Doncaster and Templestowe — people closer to the city finding they’re working from home a lot more and are wanting a bit more open space.”
The property had racked up more than 3000 views on realestate.com.au within days of hitting the market
It also features a fireside lounge, a theatre room, a gym, cellar, study, lift and four-car garage.
The open-plan living and dining space adjoins a “feature-packed” kitchen, has high ceilings and opens out to the alfresco deck.
