Sorrento: New Palm Springs-inspired house for sale


20 Denby Ave, Sorrento, is on the market with a $3.45m-$3.65m price guide.


A brother-sister design and construction team have brought Palm Springs style to the Mornington Peninsula’s skinniest point.

Architect Elise Ross and luxury builder Simon Ross joined forces to create this mid-century inspired house at 20 Denby Ave, Sorrento.

It is now on the market, new, with a $3.45m-$3.65m price guide.

The house was inspired by mid-century architecture.


The light and bright interior.


Peninsula Sotheby’s International Realty agent Hamish Opray said the single-level home’s nostalgic aesthetic was proving popular with buyers.

“You mention the words ‘Palm Springs’ and people get excited,” Mr Opray said.

“It’s also at the narrowest point of the entire Mornington Peninsula, (so) you can walk to the beach either way – to the Koonya back beach at the southern end or Cameron’s Bight at the northern end.”

The latter featured a dog beach – ideal for pet owners, Mr Opray said.

He noted the home’s silvertop ash cladding and blackbutt decking oozed coastal chic, while elements such as Krause brickwork and ceilings stretching to 4.4m recalled the mid-century era of housing.

The house offers seamless indoor-outdoor flow.


The striking Miele kitchen.


Burnished concrete floors and floor-to-ceiling glass were other design highlights.

The U-shaped house wraps around a glass-tiled pool and spa, while a poolside alfresco area with a built-in barbecue offers the perfect place for summer entertaining.

“There are also two separate living areas, with a kitchenette in the second living area as well (as the main kitchen). So you’ve got really good separation if the kids are watching a movie or the parents are entertaining,” Mr Opray said.

“And there’s hydronic slab heating through the whole house, you’ve got reverse-cycle heating and cooling, and (the property is) fully insulated and doubled glazed. So you’re not going to be too hot or cold in this house.”

The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite.



The main living space is filled with natural light, and feels particularly spacious thanks to a 3.4m-high ceiling.

The adjoining Miele kitchen has 120mm stone benchtops, twin pyrolytic ovens, a butler’s pantry and a servery window out to the barbecue zone.

The other lounge has a built-in study for work-from-home needs.

Mr Opray said the Koonya General Store was “around the corner”, while the Blairgowrie and Sorrento villages were also nearby.
