Set in the Cobaw Ranges, Alkoomi is an idyllic architect designed house set on 150 acres with its own ornamental lake, sweeping views and pristine countryside, just 7km from Hanging Rock. It offers absolute privacy and serenity, just an hour from Melbourne's CBD/45 minutes from Tullamarine Airport. There is a strict no smoking policy for entire property and to preserve its tranquility, we accommodate a maximum of just six guests at any time.
The Alkoomi estate features rammed earth, glass, honed black granite and blackbutt timber as well as underfloor heating perfect for Victorian winters. The house was designed by acclaimed architect Russell Barrett and features an expansive open-living/kitchen area, a master suite featuring en suite and breathtaking lake views; two further double bedrooms and a study/4th bedroom; second bathroom and third WC; laundry facilities and designated pet area for those who want to bring four-legged friends. The house also features a relaxation room overlooking the lake stocked with yoga props that can be used as an extra sleeping space or simply as a chill out zone.
Guests can dine at the granite bar overlooking the entertainers' kitchen; at the 8-seater glass dining table area or in the outdoor "restaurant" style area complete with woodfire and herb garden. The lake is stocked with freshwater trout too. The home features Apple TV, high-speed broadband throughout; has an LG OLED 55" curved TV and a Sharp 46" HD TV and NetFlix and a state-of-the-art Arcam stereo system.
