Perhaps that’s why Warrandyte has become a haven for home buyers; there is plenty of nature for those who enjoy the outdoors lifestyle, yet it’s still within minutes of schools, shops and public transport as well as being an easy commute.

Jennifer Court is a cul-de-sac lined by towering eucalypts and native bushes. No. 7 is in a secluded spot at the top of the hill on one of Warrandyte’s highest and most exclusive points and is surrounded by uninterrupted views of the mountainous terrain of the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley.
This striking Englehart brick residence with exquisite landscaping is set on almost half a hectare (one acre).
Agent Adele Kocuk says the carefully considered floor plan caters for multi-generational families.
“It offers zoned children’s quarters and a master bedroom away from four separate living areas while being on one level, allowing each family member of any age to enjoy their own privacy.”
A wide entry hall leads to an open-plan living and dining area with carpeted floors, cathedral timber-lined ceilings and a tall brick feature wall with an open fireplace. Large windows overlook lush greenery.
The kitchen has its original fresh look with granite benches, timber cabinetry, walk-in pantry and a curved feature window for plenty of natural light.
Further down, a glass wall divides the spacious family area that has a bar and ceiling-mounted speakers, making it a perfect place to entertain.
French doors open to a rumpus room with green pendant lights and a separate bathroom. This area could be used as a games area for young children and teenagers.
There are five bedrooms. At the front right, the main bedroom has its own wing with walk-through mirrored robes and a luxurious two-way en suite complete with green tiling, a corner spa and a shower with a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking a fernery.
Another three bedrooms are zoned central to a large bathroom and powder room and have excellent storage space with built-in wardrobes. Each room has views over the gardens. A bedroom at the front left could also be used as a home office or library.
Outside, the gardens are like a tropical getaway with towering palm trees fringed around a tiled solar-heated pool and gas-heated spa.
At night enjoy a meal in the paved outdoor area, equipped with a gas barbecue, while taking in distant city skyline views.
There is also a full-sized floodlit tennis court and well-kept gardens with established native trees and manicured hedges.
Other features include a triple garage, ducted heating and refrigerated cooling.
Weekends can be spent visiting restaurants, markets and walking along the banks of the serene Yarra River trail.
“Situated on the crest of a hill & offering spectacular city views, this remarkable single-level, resort-inspired Englehart residence assures luxury for any discerning family.” Adele Kocuk – agent
