Contemporary design, tranquil surrounds and a premium location!
Nestled into its tranquil surrounds, this striking custom built home has been cleverly designed to respond to the topography of its gentle sloping site at the end of a quiet court. Sheltered by quality built homes on the high side of the Reservoir; this blue chip property is perfectly positioned in walking distance to open parkland, Kennington Reservoir’s bushland reserves and only a short drive from Bendigo’s thriving arts and café culture.
The unique contemporary design features a series of gracefully curved rooflines and multi-level internal and external spaces that combine to create a home that is both sculptural and highly functional. The highly considered floorplan divides the split level property into a series of raised pavilions linked by internal glass bridges and raised timber decks resulting in beautifully finished spaces flooded with natural light.
High end design features are referenced throughout the clean lines of the home including honey coloured hard wood timber flooring, square set (no cornice) finishes, marble-look Tuscan ceramic tiling, sleek black window frames and external iron balustrades, distinctive floor to ceiling corner windows, internal smoked glass balustrading, soaring 3.6 metre and 2.7 metre high ceilings and custom built shelving and cabinetry - resulting in a minimalist contemporary Danish design aesthetic.
A formal entrance with raised landing overlooks the first of the three pavilions; each with a separate living zone, bedroom accommodation, bathroom facilities and internal sliders to connect or close off each space as needed. Located on the highest point of the block at street level; the first pavilion houses the formal living and luxurious master suite complete with hidden walk through robe, TV point and elegant dual access ensuite with vanity, frameless shower screen, toilet and heated towel rail.
The central pavilion comprises an enormous open plan kitchen-dining-living room, study or fourth bedroom with built in shelving and robes, guest powder room and family laundry. The chef designed G shaped kitchen features a dramatic black glass splashback, iridescent stone benchtops, double sink and stainless steel appliances including a new dishwasher and 900mm cooker with 6 burner gas cooktop and electric oven. The custom built kitchen includes elegant backlit glass display cabinets, cleverly hidden appliance storage and a large walk in pantry with floor to ceiling shelving and provision for a refrigerator.
The lower pavilion houses a large family games room, two double bedrooms with built in robes and family bathroom with bath, vanity, shower and separate powder room. The series of raised external desks include a combination of sophisticated open and covered outdoor entertaining spaces that can be accessed through glass sliders on all three levels. These capitalise on the parkland and water views that make this location so highly sought after.
Further features include:
- Hydronic heating & split system heating & cooling in all three pavilions
- Ceiling fans indoors and outdoors
- Double garage with auto door plus additional workshop or storage capacity
- Secure internal access from garage to formal entrance hall
- New 8 panel 1.5 KW solar system

- Meticulously maintained and fully landscaped surrounds featuring mop tops, hedging, drought tolerant plantings and dripper system
Only minutes from schools and local shops and cafes including the new Kennington Village and Edwards Providore; this is a unique, stylish and versatile home built without compromise.
