‘Horizon’ – A clifftop triumph of international significance
Sitting assuredly on the cliff edge in Flinders’ most dramatic location, the just-completed ‘Horizon’ is not only one of Australia’s finest waterfront residences, but also an architectural and engineering triumph of international calibre. It represents the absolute epitome of no-expense-spared design, luxury and craftsmanship on a truly spectacular landholding of over an acre with 102 metres of oceanfront and indescribable 270-degree ocean & rural views.
Constructed by renowned local peninsula craftsmen Williams Group and incorporating considered architectural instruction by visionaries Bruce Henderson & Mim Design, this modern day masterpiece is perfection personified. Meticulous attention to detail is evident around every hand plastered curve, a consistency of composition rarely achieved on such a scale. A process that has taken 5 years in the planning, flawlessness finishes, using the finest materials available, ensure this breathtaking multigenerational home stands the test of time on the ocean’s doorstep.
The architecture is that of brilliant juxtaposition over 2,000 sqm of construction. The stunning cobblestone drive weaves past coastal landscaping by Fiona Brockhoff, providing the first glimpse of something truly extraordinary. From the cliff edge, the home is monolithic, with striking straight lines and prominent use of concrete and glass evoking an assertiveness to equal the dramatic site and ever-changing Bass Strait elements.
The floor plan has been cleverly designed to allow zoned single-floor living. The elevated first level contains five luxury ocean view bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms, a central kitchen, fully appointed scullery, as well as three living spaces oriented to maximise the mesmerising views. The European elevator facilitates effortless transition to the lower level comprising an extraordinary range of lifestyle amenities: professional gymnasium, sauna, cinema room, wine room, garaging and 2nd gourmet kitchen servicing a spectacular alfresco spa terrace, where a suspended 20 person spa overlooks the ocean breaks below.
The 18m x 8m resort pool is a sight to behold with the infinity edge horizon pool and extensive decked area providing the ideal destination for large scale poolside entertaining.
Consistent with a home of such calibre, interiors are timelessly extravagant with endless St. Croix stone complemented by American oak flooring. The list of high-end appliances and technology is similarly world-class: appliances by, Wolf and Subzero, audio-visual throughout by Sonos, zoned hydronic floor heating and VRV heating and cooling throughout, keyless entry, comprehensive security, and all home technologies controlled via Elan (the global standard in home automation). The residence is 6-star energy rated and includes a 30kw solar panel system.
Presiding over a stunning piece of Australian ocean front coastline, superlatives simply do ‘Horizon’ no justice. Offering direct beach access, Flinder’s village is a short walk away and a mere 60 minutes drive approx to Melbourne's CBD.
'Horizon' is the finest new home ever offered for sale on the Mornington Peninsula.
