Ever wanted to escape to your own forest retreat? Well, now’s your chance, with a tranquil Dandenong Ranges property hitting the market.
‘Mimosa House’ is located at the edge of Victoria’s Wrights Forest at 24 Boundary Road, Emerald, and was designed to pay homage to its local landscape and mother nature.
The home is the brainchild of Melbourne builders Sanco, along with architects UXD Group and landscape designer Adam Naulty.
The team incorporated natural materials throughout the home, including messmate timber for interior finishes, black butt flooring and spotted gum cladding and decking.
The listing describes it as an “an architecturally significant residence for generations to come”.
The property spans 3,670 square metres and features four bedrooms, two bathrooms and eight car spaces. It also boasts a number of vantage points to take in the surrounding forest.
“The crafted vantage points embrace the messmate woodland's mystical fogs and inspirational sunsets,” the listing says.
The house is made up of two separate areas connected by a glass breezeway, allowing owners “the flexibility to come together and to retreat to luxe independent living spaces”.
Other features include Carrara and Tundra marble in the kitchen, marble in the bathrooms, a dedicated wine cellar, a fireplace and a feature timber staircase set against a recycled brick feature wall.
The property is also fully landscaped, boasting more than 400 plants and two circular platforms made from wharf decking and corten steels. It also includes a separate hangar-style shed.
Mimosa House is a ‘smart home’, with remote control access to change the lighting, cooling, heating, blinds, entrance gate and shed door. It also includes underfloor heating in the bathrooms and a video security system.
The property was last sold in 2020 and has an asking price of between $2,850,000 and $3,125,000.
