‘Martinmas’; the Pauline Hurren designed homestead born to whoo a crowd with pool, spa, court and one spectacular view…
A sweeping ‘Australiana’ view like this on just shy of four acres deserves a home like this: particularly a timeless mix of multiple living zones, each pieced together by none other than revered architect Pauline Hurren – all perfectly placed just 15-minutes from Burnside Village…
Welcome to ‘Martinmas’ (translation: Indian summer); the crowd-pleasing Hills homestead that parties like it soothes the soul on a bore-fed parcel with pool, spa, steam room, sauna, pool house and a synthetic tennis court.
It’s no surprise Pauline decided to perch this 4-5-bedroom home near the highest point of the property, paving the way for a rural, gum-studded outlook that makes any gas heated swim, long soak or epic 3-setter an utter privilege.
The view isn’t lost on the deck and alfresco pavilion/games room that can be closed off from the elements just as swiftly as you can find refuge in the self-contained pool house – perfect for weekend guests or pesky teens eager for independence.
Rugged render, brick quoins and timber-framed windows and French doors form the timeless face of a home with a wing for every mood and occasion across one very flexible floorplan.
Despite its obvious formal sensibilities, it’s a home that puts a premium on those casual, family-centric moments – best served in the bay-windowed family room boasting timber-clad ceilings, stone floors, wood burning fireplace, instant access to that games room/pavilion, and a big piece of that view.
With beech joinery, hard-wearing stainless steel tops, two ovens, walk-in pantry and a servery to the games room; the main kitchen will cook and cater for the pool parties and milestone birthday bashes to come. Martinmas was simply made for it.
