- Skipper House - A Walter Burley Griffin Family Sanctuary

A rare jewel in the Mount Eagle Estate designed by distinguished architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin, the Skipper House (1928) is a tightly-held treasure amidst established terraced gardens on a 1359m2 allotment (approx). Significantly, sympathetically and lovingly enhanced for modern-day family living, this iconic elevated home offering five bedrooms and three bathrooms, including two by famous French designer Philippe Starck, takes pride of place among the upper echelon of Australian residential architecture. Revolving around a large central terrace overlooking leafy garden, a broad vine-covered entrance hallway introduces natural light to a flexible family interior flanked by northside living and dining rooms and a versatile southside lounge or rumpus room with both warmed by wide open fireplaces. High gabled ceilings, corner windows and polished hardwood floorboards create an impressive depth of character throughout as the layout extends to a spacious master bedroom with a striking ensuite, stylish family bathroom with a freestanding bath (both Starck bathrooms with heated floors) and three further bedrooms or two and a study. A brilliantly updated kitchen and meals area includes Miele stainless-steel appliances and excellent storage, while downstairs lies an additional bedroom (OFP), bathroom, workshop or studio and a huge wine cellar. Other attributes include a laundry, hydronic heating, split-system air-conditioning, video intercom, smart lock entry and solar electricity, as well as a series of garden and vegetable courtyards, chicken coop, double carport and direct ROW side access to the local residents' own Outlook Park Reserve. Set among towering native trees and extensive garden with a sculptural water feature, Skipper House is a peaceful family sanctuary of great significance that continues to inspire the joys of life as envisioned by the Griffins with their timeless design. A once in a lifetime opportunity close to river parkland and the Main Yarra Trail, East Ivanhoe Village cafes, Burgundy Street and Ivanhoe shopping precincts, train station, quality schools, freeway and the Austin and Mercy Hospitals.
