BUYERS can wake up to their own exotic paradise without having to buy a boarding pass at this St Kilda property.
A glass-floored passage leads over tranquil fish ponds and past resort-style ferns to connect the front and back sections of the four-bedroom house at 34 Robe St in rare style.
The light-filled home has been architecturally redesigned and extended to add plenty of lavish character behind its protected heritage arts and crafts facade.
Period details including timber floors and high ceilings maintain the property’s original charm in the front section of the home, while stylish modern living takes the focus across the pond.
“I’ve not seen another house done in this way,” said agent Graeme Wilson, of Wilson.
“It’s just very, very lush and green.”.
Buyers will love their own private tropical getaway in the main bedroom, which features a deluxe ensuite and walk-in robe and opens to the garden.
A fully-fitted cellar keeps a welcome supply of wine at optimum temperature.
Plenty of storage and shelving including an attic make the home a practical catch too.
The only thing that’s missing is the in-house masseur.
The property will be auctioned on November 28 at 1.30pm by Wilson.
