The Mornington Peninsula remains one of Victoria’s most spectacular locations, home to countless award-winning wineries, hot springs and beaches that belong on a postcard. Its lush, rural surroundings are the backdrop of 29 Callanans Road, Red Hill South, which represents one of the peninsula’s most enviable estates.
Sitting in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, the property spans a full 16 acres, which includes a sought-after slice of bushland as well as a properly palatial main house. Boasting five bedrooms and six bathrooms, you’ll be able to store your fleet of cars safely in the six-car garage, while entertaining guests in the expansive living areas.
The house reminds of the grand Cape Cod-style homes of the East Hamptons, offering the visual impression of restrained elegance, despite the scale of the home. Featuring two levels of soaring ceilings, the central entrance to the property leads to a relaxed lounge room, that in turn gives way to a spacious outdoor terrace, pool, and spa. The seasoned entertainer’s dream.
With views that extend across the bushland forest all the way to the waters of Point Leo, the serenity offered by the location is equal to what you’ll find within the home. In addition to the main lounge area, the home also features a games room that was once a stable, complete with a golf simulator, pool table and custom-built cocktail bar.
If the self-cleaning infinity pool and spa weren’t enough, the current owners have also added a recently installed steam room to the property, completing the triple threat of spaces that revitalise. The kitchen area features a double-height ceiling above its stone-top island bench, and comes finished with commercial-grade refrigeration and cooking areas that are neatly tucked away within a scullery.
Up a central staircase, you’ll find the master bedroom with a walk-in dressing room and ensuite, which overlook the vibrant garden below. The second level is also home to another lounge area, which leads directly to an east-facing balcony that would be the perfect place to enjoy the early morning light.
The property was last sold in 2018, and the current owners have been busy in the years since making a few notable changes to the estate. As well as the new steam room and converted stables into the games room, the equestrian training paddock has been adapted into an outdoor sports space. With a soccer field and tennis court, 29 Callanans Road, Red Hill South, really has something for everyone.
The home was listed this week with a guide price of between $25 million and $27 million. So if you’ve always loved the Mornington Peninsula, but never quite found the perfect home in which to settle, this could be exactly what you’re looking for.
