A waterfront Bellarine Peninsula home featured on Grand Designs Australia comes with a 15-seat cinema, rooftop deck and wellness hub.
A waterfront Bellarine Peninsula home that shot to fame on Grand Designs Australia has hit the market.
The palatial seven-bedroom, six-bathroom pad featured on the show’s first series in 2010 and now operates as one of Australia’s top bed and breakfasts.
A huge rooftop terrace with 360-degree views across Port Phillip Bay and beyond, a 15-seat ‘gold class’ cinema, swanky bar and underground wellness hub are among the extravagant features sure to turn heads at 13 Calimo Place, Indented Head.
The tri-level home is listed with $4.6 million to $4.9 million price hopes.
RT Edgar, Point Lonsdale agent Felix Hakins said the grand design was in a league of its own.
“It is truly one of the best properties we have had to come market around the area,” Mr Hakins said.
“It is home that has got absolutely everything and with their holiday rental side of things, it’s probably the strongest property that we’ve ever marketed around in that area as well.
“You can’t fault anything — obviously its got the Gold Class cinema, the biggest one we have seen, there’s seven bedroom, six bathrooms and the views on top all around the bay.”
Hoteliers Ian McDonald and Rob Wilhelm originally conceived the residence as a luxury weekend escape and have since built it into an award-winning holiday accommodation business.
Starhaven Retreat was the top rated bed and breakfast in Australia in TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice awards last year.
Mr Hakins said buyers could take advantage of good returns from the current live-in accommodation business or keep the five-star accommodation all to themselves.
Indulging is the order of the day on the lower level’s large swim-spa, sauna, bar and 15-seat cinema, all accessible via a glass elevator.
A soaring glass atrium connects the space to the two level above ground, where monochromatic living areas and bedrooms link to a series of terraces.
The main bedroom suite is a showstopper decked out with a gas log fire, grand dressing room and ensuite that has a water feature to fill the bath and a double shower that doubles as a steam room.
Mr Hakins said the waterfront location offered safe bay swimming beaches and wineries just up the road.
The property — which is on track to become Indented Head’s most expensive residential home — was previously listed for sale several years ago but failed to find a buyer during a long-running campaign.
Expressions of interest close on March 18 at 5pm.
