Buxton c1913… Once-in-a-Generation Landmark Estate


Absolutely one of Sandringham’s finest Edwardian homes and arguably one of its greatest estates, Buxton c.1913 is both a landmark property and unique family lifestyle opportunity. Set on the sweep of the crescent beyond a curvaceous semi-circle drive, this notable 1,321 sqm/14,219 sqft (approx) estate offers unparalleled period living with up to seven bedrooms, three bathrooms and multiple living zones …set over a gracious main residence (configured from two original period homes) and a rear garden-cottage (with separate access from Gipsy Lane).

Creatively re-imagined with parents’ and children’s wings linked by a central atrium, the principal home welcomes a big, blended or extended family with space to entertain by fine open-fireplaces in grand lounge and dining, room to get together in a lofty vaulted-ceilinged pool-view family zone, and a place for the kids to make a bit of noise in their own well-zoned lounge.

Beautifully designed with an atrium-access master-domain providing the perfect retreat and a versatile library-home office to double as fifth bedroom, there’s the opportunity to set the kids free in their own wing… and the freedom to entertain in all-weather in the part-covered atrium. But for truly independent living, this exceptional estate goes even further; with separate accommodation for adult children, in-laws, guests or au-pair out beyond the pool in the completely self-contained two bedroom Gipsy Lane cottage.

Crafted with an eye to the homes’ architectural integrity and a focus on the way Bayside families choose to live today, this unique property puts an elite German Neff and Gaggenau appliance kitchen between the formal and family zones, and adds a luxe designer bathroom to each wing. Finely finished with elegant plantation shutters, blonde Blackbutt flooring and cool concrete-look and Calacatta-style stone benchtops, this timeless home works for modern family life with gentle hydronic heating, climate-controlling reverse-cycle air-conditioning, and brilliant bespoke cabinetry including robes for every bedroom plus library, home-office and media joinery.

Even the grounds combine period beauty and contemporary comfort with a glass-fenced solar-heated pool and spa along an avenue of olives, broad lawns bordered by fruitful orchard trees, 5000L water-storage to keep lawns healthy, and four car parking on the auto-gated drive and rear double garage. Steps from soon-to-rise Sandringham Primary School, 400m to the village and station and just three stops to the Brighton schools.

Buxton c.1913 is more than a home…it is a unique opportunity to secure your family's place in history for generations to come. For more information on this landmark family estate, please contact Greg Downes (0413 592 905) at the Hodges Real Estate Group.
