20 Mittons Bridge Road, St Andrews
Flawlessly capturing the ambience of a desired rural setting that borrows a relaxed outlook from neighbouring properties to ensure all the benefits without the upkeep, this exceptional home envisaged by our vendors and brought to fruition under the pen of local architect Trevor Weichmann delivers inspired living in an enticing location.
A carefully considered blend of durable and natural materials unite seamlessly in a home that is a warm and welcoming showcase form meets function in practical spaces that manage to excite with quirky individual touches.
Wrapped in a deep veranda that delivers a relaxing rural outlook of cleared pastoral land, light bush on the hillside and a dam filled with lilies, the unique exterior, a union of timber and corrugated iron under a gently curved barrel roofline, gives way to an equally inspiring interior.
Finished with timber floors filled with natural light and opening to the veranda, the expansive open-plan living-meals stretches out from a Jarrah detailed kitchen equipped with a 900 mm stainless steel range. It is complemented by a second living area, opening to the deck, the main bedroom, which boasts access to a veranda overlooking the dam and two further bedrooms featuring "cubbies" perfect for a sleepover.
The bedrooms are served by a striking bathroom that unites contemporary tiled finishes with a generous shower constructed of corrugated iron and curved to create an impression of showering in a water tank!
Integrated under the house is a large and versatile retreat complete with a full bathroom, making it ideal for teen or multi-generational accommodation, while a separate studio delivers options for those wishing to indulge in artistic pursuits or work from home.
Sitting at the gateway to the Yarra ranges and just a few minutes from St Andrews General Store and primary school, the shops and stations of Hurstbridge and Eltham are within an easy drive.

Advocate For This
It’s not difficult to see why Nicole Rowe has been so successful in assisting home owners across Melbourne since joining the team at Ian Reid Vendor Advocates in 2005. When you combine a natural affinity with people from all walks of life, a confidence that comes from having been personally trained by Ian Reid himself and a genuine enthusiasm for real estate, the only surprise is that Nicole didn’t take the plunge even earlier. In fact, whilst Nicole has made a career of assisting people in a variety of settings, one consistent factor is her willingness to make potentially stressful situations so much easier for her clients. In the past this has included helping people to deal with major surgery and assisting them to recover from property damage or loss. Now, of course, she takes great pride in alleviating the stress of selling a home whilst ensuring that they achieve the very best possible result in doing so. When you talk to the families that Nicole has assisted in the past, you’ll find that certain terms keep cropping up in the conversation with amazing regularity. “Compassion”, “Understanding”, “Empathy” and “A great listener” are all among the most common. Yet when you ask her why this is so, the answer is surprisingly simple. Nicole says, “When it all comes down to it, I am a strong believer in treating people exactly as I would want to be treated in the same situation. I think people want sound professional advice from someone who genuinely cares about them and who understands their situation, so that’s what I provide.” With Nicole Rowe and the rest of team at Ian Reid Vendor Advocates looking after your interests, you can be sure your property is in the very best of hands.
