ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY
After 20 happy years, the current owners are committed to moving on, creating a supremely rare opportunity to acquire this massive holding of 4,504m2 of absolute riverfront, flood free land with 53m of useable river frontage. Situated at the end of a private cul-de-sac this property is a true parkland idyll complete with beautiful subtropical gardens, massive trees, complete privacy and plentiful birdlife.
Then there are the views. The home enjoys a panorama of the river encompassing Mandalay Park on the opposite bank, Rocks Riverside Park upstream and Carrington Rocks yacht club downstream towards Lone Pine Sanctuary, with no neighbours in sight. You would not know that you are in the city on this property!
The substantial home was architecturally designed and was an icon in its time. It was built for a prominent developer and was well ahead of its time in its use of extensive use of glass, huge doors and surrounding covered verandas to allow indoor/outdoor living and from which to enjoy the views and natural surroundings. A real party house in the 60’s and later the Japanese consulate. All spaces are generously proportioned. The spacious entrance hall leads into a large family room, kitchen and lounge which then opens onto a wide balcony overlooking the river. Around a garden courtyard are five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a third family room. And at 575m2 it is comfortably liveable as is or can be readily rejuvenated to create your dream residence. The property is also exceptionally well geared for entertaining with a heated salt water pool, cellar, wet bar, sauna and large art studio along with a fabulous high-set poolside deck which wraps around the base of a majestic fig tree and looks out over the full bend of the river. Several paths wind down the block through gardens and past a tranquil fish pond towards the river where flat useable land and a jetty await providing plenty of opportunity for the future.
Situated just 10kms from the CBD, the residence is located adjacent to a park, with quality schools, transport and all other amenities nearby. The motivated sellers have spent the last two decades enjoying a premier lifestyle, but are now looking to retire to the coast, creating a very rare opportunity for the astute buyer. Take advantage of this and create a dream home perched high above the river in this peaceful, private, tranquil locale, but ensure you move quickly as this very rare opportunity will not last.
