Could this be peak family living? A five-bedroom fun palace with so much usable space the property has its own basketball half-court, swimming pool and putting greens.
The 2386sq m property sits at the top of Grosvenor Dr at number 97-99, an amazing opportunity to enjoy the 180-degree views across Geelong.
The home is listed for expressions of interest closing August 23, with price hopes from $2m to $2.2m.
The facade is striking to say the least.
The Queen Anne style is replicated with multiple turrets and gables. Barry Plant, Highton agent Julia Warren said it’s renowned in the neighbourhood as the “gargoyle house”.
Appearances aside, Ms Warren said it’s the enormous space that’s created the greatest reaction from people inspecting the home.
“Everyone who comes though has said it’s so much more impressive in person,” she said.
“The photos look amazing but you can’t fully take in the size and the outlook. When we were there last night, you can see all the way down in the Queenscliff direction, all the way across to Melbourne. It’s just incredible.”
The expansive ground floor is highlighted with polished floorboards, high ceilings and open fireplaces.
But the key to the address is the outlook, and every room, be it a bedroom, living, dining or upstairs rumpus room gets to share the view.
“But it’s so private and even through there are neighbouring properties you do not feel like there’s one next door,” Ms Warren said.
“For somebody who doesn’t want to leave on the weekend, it’s got the pool, the basketball court, the putting greens and the in-built trampoline.
“The owners have loved it over the past couple of years. Everyone has got their own space, but it’s a really social layout as well.”
The ground floor is devoted to living or entertaining, with the main living area taking up the lion’s share of the space that’s complete with an open fireplace, several french doors and seating in the turret bay window.
A guest, or downstairs main bedroom has another turret with seating, and an ensuite.
The spacious kitchen overlooks the dining area and family zone.
The large stone benchtop is a focal point, while Bosch appliances and a walk-in pantry make cooking a breeze.
A curved timber staircase leads residents upstairs to a rumpus room with a bar, and three more bedrooms, including the main with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. Again, there are french doors to a balcony and two window seats.
The landscaped block is terraced from the street, with a sweeping driveway cutting a path to a double garage.
Paths lead to the front door and around the house to the flat backyard where the aforementioned activity zones are found.
Glass fencing around the pool lets occupants splash about with the view in the background.
Ms Warren said interest in the home has been strong since the launch of the campaign, dominated by families seeking to upgrade to a bigger home from Highton or Newtown.
