When Sir Robert Kerridge owned and subdivided this area in Glendowie, naming it Beverly Hills, this property was his renowned ‘Pool House’ – created solely for leisure and entertainment. Built in the late 60s, the home has undergone renovations and additions in the ensuing decades, evolving into the extremely special residence it is today.
The 260m² home is sturdily constructed of cedar, weatherboard and scoria rock (which is also accented inside the home) and heart matai floors. The moment you walk into the wide welcoming foyer you know you’re in for something distinctive – turn left and down a couple of steps into the lounge and your eye is immediately drawn to the entire wall of glass showcasing the enchanting vista beginning with the terrace, down to the immense pool, totally secluded lawns and gardens then across parkland and out to the harbour and Gulf Islands.
The spacious lounge with its beautiful heart matai ceiling incorporates a designated ‘grand piano’ area with a cocktail bar tucked around the corner. Step up from the lounge into the open plan kitchen, dining and family room with more huge glass windows and doors framing the views and opening out to the paved terrace. The kitchen has sleek lines with all the mod cons and features a study nook on one side. The master suite is in a separate wing where big windows on two walls portray the views to perfection and enhance the space with sun and natural light. Walk through a large fully lit wardrobe area with a built-in dressing table and into the spacious en suite complete with bathtub. Three more bedrooms are on the other side of the home, two of which open out to a private patio and the third has its own balcony. There are two full bathrooms, a guest powder room and spacious laundry.
The pristine 1272m² site is enhanced and secluded by mature planting and the pool and retro pool house are a nod to that bygone era where it all began. The highly sought after area is close to all the attractions and amenities of the Bays – and in zone for Glendowie College and Primary.
There is so much to enjoy here – sunrises; moonrises; spectacular views; seclusion; security; summer swims; multiple outdoor entertaining areas; morning coffee on the terrace accompanied by the sound of tui and a siege of herons that daily visit the nearby trees … we could wax lyrical interminably but this really has to be seen to be truly appreciated. It’s the perfect family home – avoid disappointment and call me now!
