LUXURIOUS FAMILY LIVING
PLEASE NOTE: TWILIGHT OPENING THIS THURSDAY, 15th Feb, 6.45pm - 7.15pm
Presenting in every way as a brand new, luxuriously finished, bespoke two-storey residence, this remarkable home has been finished to the absolute highest standards. With timeless style, literally no expense has been spared in creating the ultimate family home. The north-facing backyard is a private sanctuary, with ample cool shade in summer, a pool and alfresco dining and living, it is a focal point of the home in the summer months. Perfect for kids and adults alike. The northerly aspect ensures the home remains light and bright through the winter months when the gas fires will be creating a cozy atmosphere indoors.
Offering 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, on 1012sqm of land, positioned on the river end of one of Dalkeith's quietest roads, it is minutes from parks, playing fields, the Dalkeith Tennis and Bowling clubs, and White Beach, one of the city's most outstanding riversides.
From the electric double gates and sweeping driveway through the landscaped front garden you arrive at the portico with oversized double front doors and are welcomed into an elegant entry hall. Classic chequerboard black and white marble floors, a sweeping staircase, and a beautiful pendant light are an appropriately inspiring introduction to an interior that has been carefully crafted to delight at every turn.
To the right is a home office, ideal for quiet focused work, meetings or phone calls without disturbing the rest of the home. This room has a full wall of bespoke cabinetry, with flowing linen curtains and dual aspect windows giving a view to the gardens and an abundance of natural light.
To the left is a front lounge or media room, with full cinema surround sound, ideal as a separate zone for kids to play but not too removed from the main open plan living dining and lounges that feature across the north facing side of the home on the ground floor.
The home features a dedicated sitting room, designed as a separate area for social gatherings, talking, reading or enjoying a quiet drink, with picture windows and an Escea gas fireplace for instant warmth and atmosphere in the winter months.
As you walk through to the large open plan living and dining zone across the north side, looking into the private lawns, garden, pool and alfresco areas through the full-height double-glazed sliding glass doors, it's clear this will be the hub of family life year-round.
The bespoke kitchen is open plan to this living zone, across the western side of the space. The shaker-style kitchen is bespoke and fully imported from the UK, finished with Carrara marble bench tops giving it a luxurious and refined elegance. A four-meter island bench with a Miele gas hob, scullery, a bank of Miele ovens, a wall of Liebherr Monolith fridges and a walnut-panelled drinks cabinet enhance the aesthetic and functionality. A temperature-controlled walk-in wine cellar for 900 bottles is accessed from the scullery.
The kitchen opens to the alfresco, our door dining, living and BBQ area that in turn overlooks the sparkling crystal white in-ground pool with formed architectural grey concrete and glass fencing, lawns and garden. This whole zone is a space for cooking, entertaining friends and family, and living your best life.
The beautiful lawned garden has been superbly landscape designed showcasing the beauty of the established plantings with newer additions of natives and succulents that have been carefully selected to flourish in years to come, yet still be low maintenance.
This home offers exceptional family living. It is at once highly functional as a family home, with a well-considered floor plan, and as a glamorous entertainer that will adapt to every situation, from formal gatherings to casual fun.
The secure lock-up garage is suitable for two large cars, or three medium cars, with a workshop area and additional storage. Above the garage is a large loft room, fully lined and floored, ideal for a huge amount of storage or a multitude of other uses as you see fit. It is accessed at this point via a drop-down ladder. The forecourt is behind a secure electronic gate and has room for additional parking as required. From the secure lock-up garage you enter directly into the home via the spacious laundry and drop zone. From there you come in through the scullery and directly into the kitchen.
The ground floor zone is serviced by a bespoke powder room.
Upstairs there are 5 king-size bedrooms, 4 of them ensuited plus an epic family bathroom with double rainhead shower in veined porcelain slab, a free-standing stone bath and double vanity.
The upstairs is floored with chevron European Oak flooring flowing through all the rooms. 2 bedrooms have walk-in robes and 2 have bespoke built-in robes all in a 2-Pac finish with brass hardware. The secondary en-suites are fitted with Carrara marble bench tops and tiles.
The large main bedroom faces north and offers everything you would expect from a home of this calibre, pendant bedside lights, high ceilings and a 5 star hotel-style Carrara marble ensuite with double rain shower and double vanity and stone bath. There is a stunning walk-in robe with abundant cupboards and drawers and a built in dressing table. Lastly sliding doors open onto a private north-facing balcony. This is a beautiful peaceful place for a morning coffee overlooking the dragon tree and pool below. You will never want to leave home!
Throughout, the interior is multifaceted, transformative and beautiful with a European influence. It is both comfortable and relaxed as well as sophisticated and elegant. I look forward to showing you through.
