Standing gracefully in a quiet leafy street of inner-Melbourne’s Elwood, you’re able to enjoy the spoils of being close to beaches and the CBD while experiencing Elwood’s village atmosphere. Luxurious, entertaining and delightful, Elwood Retreat will exceed your expectations from its landscaped child-friendly gardens, pool and outdoor dining, to the four bedrooms, designer kitchen, lavish bathrooms and generous free flowing design.
Elwood Retreat makes it easy to embrace the outdoors and unwind in luxurious open plan design that offers the ultimate in family living. And you’ll certainly discover that in the kitchen, dining and living areas which soak up views of the lush garden, timber deck and sparkling pool.
White flooring, walls and ceiling flow throughout the space, while the dark cabinets and bench tops in the kitchen provide a striking contrast and inject a luxurious feel. Not only is it a stunning design but you have the practicality of high-end appliances, generous bench space and a kitchen island bench with attached dining table. So, you can take a casual approach to meals or move into the formal dining area for a fabulous night of entertaining. If you’re seeking a quieter spot, you have a private window seat that peers out to the pool or you can enjoy a calm conversation in the living area complete with chunky sofa and armchairs and floor to ceiling timber framed views of the pool and garden.
You’re assured a relaxing and entertaining experience outside, whether you take time out for yourself or gather together. A spacious grassed area invites the kids to play for hours and everyone will want to take a dip in the outdoor heated pool. BBQ lunches are a must, while the outdoor entertaining deck has you covered for all seasons.
Every guest is catered to with four luxurious bedrooms, all offering a gorgeous outlook and calming design elements. You have a king, two queens and king single room to choose from, with one of the queen bedrooms enjoying the privacy of an exquisite ensuite with bath. And should you need further space, the study room can be used as a double bedroom. There’s also an elegant family bathroom with shower.
Throw on your walking shoes or take a quick car trip to Elwood Beach and the Elwood Village shopping strip, where you can enjoy a quiet coffee or even pick up some groceries. For the golfing enthusiasts, Elsternwick Golf Course is within walking distance as is Elsternwick Park Tennis Centre. A five-minute drive will take you to St Kilda Beach, Luna Park, St Kilda Esplanade Market and St Kilda Pier.
