SOLD by Steve Granger & Mike O'Neill
House Sold - McCrae VIC
A life well lived is about being drawn to people and places. McCrae is such a place and the people who are lucky enough to live within it easily associate with these words. Such is the case with this home which occupies a singularly, sensational position on a crest at the base of Arthurs Seat offering inspired views both across and beyond the swathe of Port Phillip Bay.
Upon entry to this original, solid double brick residence you’ll experience the grand statement that was made some 40 odd years ago when a considered design sought to capture the essence of its position. A wall of windows will draw you to the water to pick out the points of interest be it the Heads, Melbourne’s majestic skyline, the Lighthouse, Mud Island or the You Yangs. Should I mention sunsets and the constant stream of passing ships? You will be truly mesmerised by the sheer majesty of this view.
Solid construction techniques employing the eclectic use of concrete, timber and brick would invite a retro refit in an adaptable design that wouldn’t require too much reworking to fully encapsulate the sense of the era with a modern interpretation.
3 substantial bedrooms, 2 large living areas, garaging under the house with ample space for a workshop and easy side access to the 853m2 (approx) site leave so much scope for improvement. The grand entry boasts ornate, clerestory windows and a bespoke timber spiral staircase leading to a massive rumpus room below with the requisite billiard table and wet bar.
Seeing is believing, so take the opportunity to view, plan and contemplate what is the next stage for this McCrae manor.
