Merricks Grove Vineyard is an 82 acre property at Stanleys Road, Merricks North, on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Acquired by the Gersh family in 2003, the property has spectacular sweeping views over the vineyard and panoramic views over Westernport, Phillip Island and The Nobbies.
Designed by renowned Melbourne architectural firm Wood/Marsh, Merricks Grove Residence was completed in the early stages of 2009. With home builder David Coxhell taking out Master Builders Association “House of the Year” award.
The residence arcs gently across the landscape, following the contours of the land and framing views to the ocean. A pair of curved earth-walls act as a solid, central spine from which smaller, more refined volumes radiate. Thus, various ‘in-between’ spaces are created, providing shelter and intimacy against the often harsh coastal environment.
