31 Ormond Esplanade, ELWOOD VIC 3184
FONTAINEBLEAU (c1929 Arts and Crafts) is Elwood's crowning glory. A landmark property on the corner of Elwood's best residential street, FONTAINEBLEAU exudes history and character and expresses quality in all its dimensions, in every detail. The enduring elegance of this classic home is magnificently complemented by unsurpassed bay views, streaming light and unforgettable sunsets.
An evocative entrance hall introduces a refined, flexible living/entertaining area where the indoor-outdoor focus is emphasised by seamless links to an alfresco terrace and alluring heated lap pool and spa. The elevated living and dining areas reflective of Richard Swansson's sublime design are reached via a stunning Stephen Akehurst heated marble staircase with walnut timber edging and embedded LED mood lighting. On this level, the flooding light and sights of the bay accompany superb open spaces serviced by a Handelsmann & Khaw beachside inspired kitchen featuring Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and bespoke Italian Marmarino surfaces.
The four bedrooms and three bathrooms include an upstairs parents' retreat with walk-in robe, huge ensuite and private terrace. The home is further enhanced by multi zoned reverse cycle heating/cooling, as well as in floor heating in the downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms. Solar panels, security and lift access to all levels, including the three car basement garage, add to the attraction of a home surrounded by wonderful Hortflair European inspired gardens. Elwood's best - quite literally.
