Discreetly nestled at the end of coveted Thomson Road, bordering Claremont Park; a graceful, elegant, timeless residence and an extraordinary home of distinction and substance. A magnificent showcase of restrained architecture from visionary architect Ross McAndrew, simplicity of style accentuates the true luxury, timeless beauty and refined sophistication of this truly remarkable home.
The street frontage is immaculate and understated, with landscaped gardens bordered by manicured hedging. A secure timber door park-side leads to a private courtyard with a magnificent cherry blossom, reminiscent of classic European homes, protected behind high walls for privacy.
Beautifully balanced and classically elegant, taking centre stage at the heart of the home is an expansive high-ceiling-ed family, dining room and kitchen, perfect for entertaining with style and substance. Nine sets of beautiful French doors cascade natural light inwards from all angles into glorious living spaces, for perfect integration with the outdoors. A gas fireplace anchors an intimate living area, next to a more casual living space, where kids can sprawl to watch TV whilst a large dining area adjacent to the kitchen can easily seat 14.
A triumph of luxury and convenience, the magnificently appointed kitchen is a wonder to behold, inspiring even the most talented home chef with banks of sleek streamlined dove grey cabinetry topped with pale Caesar stone. Miele ovens, microwave, warming draw, gas and electric cook-tops, central island cooking station and huge floor to ceiling pantry storage. A service/trade door opens from the driveway adjacent to the kitchen allowing easy direct access for catering/wait staff when hosting events and parties.
Conceived with seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining in mind, living areas connect flawlessly to both private and shared external spaces. Three sets of French doors open to 3 retractable locking gates which lead directly into Claremont Park. Parties can be easily held in the expansive living area, sprawling on to the park – hire caterers and dance the night away At the rear, a wall of French doors leads out to a resplendent alfresco terrace. Gardens designed by renowned landscaper Jo Taylor feature terraced lawns and beautiful established trees bordering a magnificent full-size north south facing tennis court, providing a stunning backdrop to the home. And, the pice de rsistance, a private locked gate at the end of the garden leading directly into Freshwater Bay Primary school grounds. The kids will never be late for school again
A sanctuary of calm and serenity, a substantial north facing library/reading room with bespoke cabinetry, French doors, gas fireplace and Juliet balcony lies at the front of the home. There’s an elegant private guest suite with French doors to a private garden and a luxury Carrara marble bathroom.
Upper level accommodation is abundant and palatial. Behind double doors, a heavenly suite of rooms forms a private master retreat; a haven of tranquillity and sanctuary for adults. Generously proportioned and flooded with natural light, the master bedroom has tall windows and French doors opening to a Juliet balcony overlooking glorious cherry blossoms and beautiful park lands beyond. There’s an exquisite carrara marble en-suite, sunlit; with decadent deep bath, dual vanity, oversized double shower and WC, substantial individual his and hers dressing rooms, each with floor to ceiling bespoke internally lit cabinetry, and access to a spectacular roof terrace amongst the trees.
A further three generous, beautifully sunny, queen size bedrooms, all have built in robes, and share a divinely luxurious carrara marble bathroom and separate WC. One bedroom features French doors opening to the rooftop terrace, one has French doors opening to a Juliet balcony overlooking the park and the third has tall windows overlooking the picturesque rear gardens and tennis court.
