The steep roof pitch at 38-40 Homestead Ave, Wallington was inspired by the Barwon Heads Golf Club.

THE prestigious Barwon Heads Golf Club provided the inspiration for a grand brick house that’s full of surprises in Wallington.

The steep pitched roof line of the sprawling five-bedroom house was modelled on the 1920s clubhouse to create a lavish country house in a secluded bush setting.

Described as a Pandora’s box, 38-40 Homestead Ave, Wallington is far from your classic residence, with a colourful retro kitchen an unexpected detour from the traditional.

Modern convenience meets 1950s style in this country kitchen.

The soaring ceilings are a key feature.

Wandoo hardwood floors, exposed beams and cedar windows and doors are other standout features of the two-storey house on 1.09ha of land.

It comes with a separate two-bedroom cottage with it’s own kitchen, bathroom and living area.

RT Edgar, Barwon Heads agent Andy Ingham said the owners operated the Faulty Towers break and breakfast from the property that bore distinct similarities to the golf club.

He said the versatility of the home was one of its best assets.

One of many living areas on offer.

“It’s an unusual building and a very unique home. You just feel that quality of the building and the character of the home,” Mr Ingham said.

“You are tucked away, it’s really private, and it offers so many different options to different people.”

Price hopes for the property are $1.8 million to $1.98 million, with expressions of interest closing on September 9 at 5pm.

Surrounding trees create a private hideaway.

The house offers a living room for almost every occasion with a formal loungeroom, casual family room, playroom and sitting room on the ground floor joined by a rumpus room and billiard room upstairs.

The kitchen and meals area sits under a bold red ceiling and has a 1950s style island bench, slow combustion oven, electric oven and gas cooktop.

There are four bedrooms, including the main bedroom with his and hers walk-in wardrobes and an ensuite with a spa, and a study on the ground floor.

A guest bedroom suite upstairs overlooks the surrounding bush, including a forest of tea grass.

The property also comes with a Tuscan style walled vegetable garden, oversized garage and 93,000L of tank water capacity.
