The Fender House Mount Martha

Designed circa ‘73 by Australian icon Karl Fender, one of the world’s finest architects, renowned for projects such as Eureka Tower and MoNA.
On 3.5 acres, nestled in the gum trees of Mount Martha is this stunning example of Mid-Century living.

Sprawling over 6 levels, the meticulously restored house features original oversized windows, wood-panelled ceilings and walls, terrazzo floors. Also, a generous kitchen, Palm Springs style pool and fully equipped gym.

The space
This bold two-story 70s house is filled with collectable furniture and decor very much from this era. Its distinctive style and space will leave you feeling like you’ve stepped back in time.

It can sleep up to 10 guests comfortably with, trundle beds available in the two single bedrooms (for up to 12 guests if necessary).
NO new or early walkers/toddlers (3 years and under). This house has a lot of stairs and split levels. Some handrails are missing and there are no stair-guards. This isn't a safe environment for children who are crawling or learning to walk.

Bedroom 1 downstairs - queen bed with ensuite and double shower
Bedroom 2 downstairs - double bed with original small 70s ensuite
Bedroom 3 upstairs - queen bed
Bedroom 4 upstairs - single bed with trundle
Bedroom 5 upstairs - single bed with trundle

There is a third bathroom upstairs with small original 70s bath/shower for bedrooms 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Where you’ll be

Mount Martha, Victoria, Australia

Mount Martha village is a 3-4 minute drive away, right opposite the beach. For a delicious breakfast and coffee, our favourite is Milkbar & Co and Higher Ground. For dinner with the friendliest service and the best pizza in the village, Volpino is a must. If you just want to watch the sun go down with a drink in hand try upstairs at Mr Curtis.
Mount Martha South Beach is arguably one of the most stunning beaches on the Peninsula, about 3-4 minute drive or around a 25-30 minute walk.
If golf is your thing, Mount Martha public golf course is a stone's throw away just up the road.

There are plenty of award-winning wineries close by, our favourites; Foxey's Hangout, 795 White Hill Rd, Red Hill, Jackalope, 166 Balnarring Rd, Merricks North and Ten Minutes by Tractor, 1333 Mornington-Flinders Rd, Main Ridge.
