1108 Axe Creek Road
Sedgwick VIC 3551
Modern rural living at its finest
This spacious and contemporary light filled home sits on just over 6 acres of land conveniently located just 20 minutes from Bendigo with direct school bus access along Axe Creek Road. Architecturally designed and built only seven years ago the ultra-modern home is positioned in the landscape to take full advantage of the stunning views across Pilchers Bridge Reserve, the Sedgwick valley and all the way down to Axe Creek which runs along the rear boundary.
Clad in corrugated iron, spotted gum and sandstone with walls of argon filled double glazed tinted floor to ceiling windows, the property has a distinctly modern Australian architectural design sensibility. The clever layout divides the home into a series of pavilions linked by internal galleries and external courtyards and raised timber decks resulting in spaces that are both highly functional and beautifully finished - referencing the surrounding landscape at every opportunity.
Quality, modern finishes including high gloss porcelain tile flooring, reconstituted stone and glass benchtops and vanities, purpose built cabinetry, high ceilings, low profile skirting and door trims, modern louvre and contemporary window profiles, pure wool carpeting and luxurious grey window treatments feature throughout. Everything in the home is on a grand scale. Pops of colour are used to provide dramatic effect in the kitchen and bathroom glass splashbacks and mirror surrounds and corresponding accent tiles.
The home’s central pavilion houses the light filled entry and vast rear facing open plan dining, kitchen and living zone with fire place. A second entry leads directly from the carport into a practical mudroom serviced by a guest powder room. The sleek galley style kitchen features a striking red glass splashback, stone benchtops, an enormous island bench with double sink, stainless steel appliances, Ilve free standing 5 burner gas cooktop and dual electric ovens and expansive walk in pantry with floor to ceiling shelving and provision for a wine fridge. The rear deck links this space to the second living zone pavilion, ideal as a games room or as an entertaining space.
All accommodation is housed in the third pavilion including the master suite, the remaining three bedrooms with built in robes, laundry, storeroom, family bathroom with shower, vanity and modern oval free standing bath, separate toilet and home office with external access. The master is oriented to take in the ever changing view across the rear of the home and features a concealed walk in robe and relaxing ensuite that opens onto a private decked courtyard.
