One of the Grove’s most exquisite homes, Chantry House, marries history with the luxuries of the modern world, with all the gracious looks of a heritage home it belies the fact it was built, from scratch, a mere 8 years ago.

Impeccably modelled on 19th Century Georgian Italianate Boom-style architecture, this residence incorporates world-standard craftsmanship and globally-sourced antique fixtures of historical significance. That said, it still meets the highest standards of modern family living with the latest technology, security and spectacular open plan living and alfresco spaces.

Set on 1434m of prime soil a short walk to the riverfront, with an eastern right of way for added privacy and access plus rear entry directly from Hurstford Close.

On the ground level, there are vast light-filled living domains including the divine formal dining and lounge areas with regal-like quality, soaring elaborately decorated ceilings and walls with dentil and intricate ornamental detailing, antique chandeliers and exquisite drapes over tall windows and French doors.

Informal living space is aplenty too. An extensive family room and open plan kitchen/scullery and meals area adorned with chandeliers and fetching decorative features spills onto a shady decked portico, via oversized French doors. White cast iron lace work defines the aesthetic of this broad alfresco zone, made for lounges and a generous farmhouse style dining table. Enjoying an elevated vista over the breathtaking garden this is the ultimate chill-out zone.

The prestigious Clive Christians styled kitchen has impeccable millwork cabinetry and details, multi-bevelled Carrara marble benchtops and splashbacks and an enormous island. Integrating a Bosch wall oven and steamer, multiple Villeroy + Boch ceramic sinks, freestanding Viking Professional cooktop and double oven plus every other high-end addition, in keeping with the calibre of the home. The practical scullery carries through the same quality, hosting additional appliances and a generous larder.

Below ground, you will find a giant rumpus room with brilliant walk-in storage options, plus a home theatre, with direct access to the backyard.

Your finery will be truly organised within the Master’s dressing room and the sun-lit ensuite, complete with every bathing luxury imaginable, conjures holidays in Tuscany.
A discreet staircase conveniently links the Master to the home office. A functional, hard-working space, complete with marble fireplace, bespoke pendant and soaring arched windows., this is another illustration of the magnificent embellishment present throughout this home that makes it so special.

Boasting 4 queen-sized secondary bedrooms, with excellent storage options and one with an ensuite and inter-connecting music room. Each room opens onto covered balcony areas with dreamy tree canopy views.

The home’s 4.5 bathrooms are imbued with sophisticated charm, blending handmade vanities from Tuscany, cast iron claw foot bathtubs, floor and towel rail heating with first-class fittings.

Heavily planted with mature ornamental pear trees, and utterly enchanting, the “forest-like” private back garden, with meandering lawn spaces is perfectly placed to bring endless joy to people of every age and stage. Exceptionally evocative, this nature space is ideal for imaginative childhood play or an idyllic adult retreat. Further enhanced by the large heated swimming pool, raised organic vegetable boxes, below-ground trampoline, carefully planted garden beds, climbing roses and deciduous creepers enshrouding the home.

For those accustomed to the very best life has to offer, this substantial residence has it all. In every intricate detail, in every intelligent design aspect, it will offer endless incredible memories for generations to come.
