A BESPOKE LUXURY RESIDENCE

This is a residence of exceptional stature. The white pillared portico of this grand residence is an indication of the impeccable style and quality you will find throughout.

Off the grand entry hall is a spacious study. High ceilings, generous windows, and marble fireplace are features. Whilst currently set up as a study, this room could just as easily be a second lounge or a home theatre with good separation from the larger open plan living and dining area of the home.

One of the exceptional architectural features of this home is the grand staircase. With an incredible sense of flow highlighted by the feature chandelier, it is a statement of both architectural flair and master craftsmanship. It beautifully links the two floors.

Adjacent to the landing of the grand staircase is a spacious formal sitting room. A stunning marble fireplace, large windows on the northern side, and doors opening onto the central courtyard make it a delightful space year-round.

This courtyard is on the northern side and brings an abundance of light and air into the key living and entertaining areas of the home. It is spacious, grassed and accessed by banks of French doors, pillars and stone steps on three sides. It is an extremely versatile space. Ideal for alfresco functions or family barbecues.

The huge family room then spans the full width of the building and includes a glowing modern kitchen, spacious dining and living areas. This is the heart of the home and will be the hub for living and entertaining. The kitchen is a miracle of gleaming surfaces, lacquered cupboards, hidden storage and a white Lacanche cooker imported from France. The very spacious butler's pantry behind the kitchen is an indispensable advantage for a busy cook and the catering of large parties. Premium, elegant and 100% functional. The kitchen also opens onto an east facing courtyard. This is completely private and filled with morning sun. A delightful place to enjoy breakfast on a summers morning and a shady, beautifully cool retreat to talk quietly whilst enjoying late summer afternoon drinks. Should you wish to install a plunge pool, this would be an ideal location.

The main bedroom suite is on the ground floor. It comprises the bedroom, dressing room, private courtyard and a huge, glamorous, white-tiled bathroom with a spectacular bath. A truly private retreat that will be an oasis of calm serenity separate from the rest of the home. The dressing room is a work of art in itself and sure to satisfy the most demanding requirements.

A whisper-quiet elevator links the two floors, complimenting the grand staircase. Upstairs we have four more large bedrooms, three ensuites and an office. One could easily use the largest of the four bedrooms as an upstairs master suite, by making the current nursery into a sitting room or a walk-in robe. Once again, these are exceptionally versatile spaces allowing you to live as you like or as your family dynamic dictates.

All the finishes and fittings throughout the home are of a premium standard. The parquetry floor is stunning and complimented throughout by high ceilings with dentil mouldings and concealed lighting.

The architects were the renowned Melbourne firm Trethowan and built by Rick Brine Master Builders.
