A personalised masterpiece of sheer architectural grandeur, standalone in its design and craftsmanship, Hesed is nothing short of magnificent and virtually irreplicable.
Located only 5 minutes from Albury CBD and positioned on two hectares of leafy surrounds, the land is on its own private water scheme with 8 mega litres of water shared only with one neighbour (both properties average less than 1 mega litre between them). There has also been a bore sunk to the second level, which has been capped as there has been no need to use it, meaning there is virtually an endless water supply to the property.
The home itself is set on 1.2-meter-wide by 1.2-meter-deep foundations, engineered to ensure no structural movement for decades to come. Set on these foundations, the home has been constructed out of 75,000 Daniel Robertson Australia bricks which are arranged in double and triple brick formation.
Aside from its impressive construction, the homes true drawcard is its serene atmosphere, portrayed by its warm colour scheme, comfortable feel, and pure liveability. The home incorporates the feel of vintage architecture through extra wide patterned cornicing and architraves, 11-foot-high ceilings (expanding to 20-foot-high ceilings in the living room), timber sash windows and beautiful West Australian Jarrah floors throughout.
The formal lounge vaunts an open fireplace, creating a focal point where guests and occupants gather on occasions. Traditional bookcases either side tie in with the extra wide mantle, custom designed by a joiner from Melbourne to suit the wide opening of the fireplace. Flowing from the formal lounge, the dining room accommodates a vast dining table and enjoys Easterly views over the botanic gardens.
A centre point of the home, and the room most relished by the current owners, the family area is a unique creation, enjoying views over the garden and inground 15m swimming pool. The heritage fireplace was constructed from left over stone from St Matthews Church, which burnt down in 1990. A stonemason from Wangaratta carefully placed each stone using traditional methods only laying around 3 stones a day.
Creating a space where people can congregate and chat when catering, the kitchen bathes in natural light and offers traditional elements of solid cedar wood cabinetry which has been painted and sealed, high end appliances, buffet with glass doors and stone bench tops imported from Carrara, Italy.
All five bedrooms are segregated, creating functionality to the modern family. The master suite comprises an impressive walk in robe and ensuite complete with double shower. An additional study serves as a home office while the attic space functions as either an artist’s studio or ideal guest accommodation.
Manicured surrounding gardens offer a traditional English feel with tall hedges and vibrant colours. Every tree on the property is serviced by a fully automatic watering system providing convenience. Relax by the gorgeous inground pool and turn those Summer dreams into reality. Two kilometres of bluestone edging surround the grounds continuing the heritage feel. Outbuildings consist of an oversized double garage/gym, four undercover car parking spaces, a shed plus an additional 7.5 X 3.6 metre storeroom.
Unmatched in its immaculate presentation and standalone architectural flare, Hesed holds the key to a long list of premium inclusions. A superb lifestyle choice unlike any other, an inspection is highly recommended.
