Nestled in and amongst the Moonah tree covered sand dunes of Sorrento on the stunning Mornington Peninsula this beautiful coastal home (designed by Planned Living Architects) has been surrounded by the perfect blend of lower level coastal garden foliage. Grey and silver hues dominate the plant scape with the wild nature of the many varieties of wispy grasses being tamed by the clipped spheres and clouds of Westringia, Teucrium, Correa and Helichrysum. Local limestone boulders and corten steel retainers manage the sand dune banks while large open lawn areas provide usable areas and much needed white space.
The rear of this property is where all the fun is at. As a holiday home the high level of amenity features are delivered in a relaxed, yet sophisticated manner with nothing being too precious or high maintenance. From the pool and spa, poolside sun area, the arbors and pergola over the tennis court lounge zone with automated awnings and full garden surround sound through to the large fire pit, tennis court and lower built in trampoline and lawn areas, this rear yard has it all.
This multi award winning garden creates such a peaceful sense of clam from the moment you enter the property as it sits so well with it’s surrounding environment and boasts a timeless appeal that will continue to develop and mature over time.
