This is resort-inspired living at its best, a stylish, large-scale entertainer in the most private of settings. A residence of exceedingly grand proportions, there are numerous indoor and outdoor living areas overlooking the pool and Asian-influenced gardens, versatile office, library and media rooms, a secluded upper-level master suite and a self-contained, two-bedroom granny flat. A stunning event space that has hosted 100 guests, the incredible, purpose-built Fig Tree Pocket Bar and lounge boasts jaw-dropping interiors, with commercial bar appliances, billiards and arcade games areas and a gym, spa and sauna.
Positioned at the end of a cul-de-sac, the dimensions of this enormous 1748m2 allotment have placed no limitations on the expansive design format of this one-of-a-kind residence, its entertainment wing and relaxation-inducing, ultra-private gardens. The home delivers incredible levels of space and versatility for families of all ages, with a large, level lawn, a four-car garage and off-street parking bays for another three cars.
Water features positioned around the professionally landscaped property calm and cool, encourage harmony and project positivity in line with Feng Shui principles. Inside, be greeted by high ceilings, translucent, Japanese shoji screen room dividers, smooth, tiled floors and flowing, glass-edged interiors that allow a seamless connection to the outdoors.
Monochromatic finishes and fixtures in black, grey and white are contrasted by bold red highlights to great effect. This is no ordinary home, and its individuality is what makes it so striking. The formal living room has a restful ambience and is particularly adored by the owners, while the adjoining terrace, with its garden outlook and gentle breezes, is a favourite spot for Friday night drinks.
Featuring a French door external opening, the dramatic, black cabinetry and solid stone and stainless-steel benchtop surfaces within the chef-inspired kitchen deliver the utmost functionality and style. Included are a 6-burner Smeg range, a dishwasher, a walk-in pantry and an abundance of practical storage. Enjoy breakfast by the pool either on the east-facing patio or within the dining room.
Offering air-conditioned comfort and easy-care finishes, there are several rooms that will readily adapt to suit lifestyle needs. There is a media or music lounge that can be closed from the main living areas, a multi-purpose room near the laundry that is ideal for use as a wine cellar or craft space and a library or executive office alternative that connects, via a peace-lily lined breezeway, to the entertainment wing.
Imagine the parties, big-screen sports event viewings and weekends and school holidays spent in the company of family and friends. Built approximately 10 years ago, the extraordinary inclusions of the Fig Tree Pocket Bar are first-rate. With ducted air-conditioning and ceiling speakers throughout, this enormous space features a full-size cocktail bar with commercial drinks and wine fridges, a glass washer, a Miele dishwasher and an ice maker.
There is so much on offer, with a large home gym, a dry/steam sauna, a separately zoned bathroom and a deluxe, 8-person spa. Just outside is access to the heated inground pool and, opposite, a stone-laid walkway leads through palms and bamboo and culminates at a pergola, with lawns, hedges and specimen magnolias ahead. Rendered block and sandstone walls around the perimeter grant absolute privacy and three concrete underground water tanks which have a total capacity of 62 000 litres are used to irrigate the property.
With three built-in king-sized bedrooms on the ground floor, the separately zoned family bathroom provides added convenience. Impeccably renovated, featured are contrasting black and white subway tiles, a freestanding bath with floor filler tap, a rain shower and a vanity with an oval countertop basin.
A private set of stairs takes you up to the master retreat, an opulent suite that opens onto a north-east facing balcony and boasts such inclusions as a dressing area with custom-built shoe cabinets, a walk-through his and hers robe and an ensuite with rain shower and twin basin vanity.
The independently accessed granny flat, positioned above the 4-car garage, is an enormous, air-conditioned accommodation suite that will suit studying teenagers, visiting relatives and adult children still living at home. With rental potential, incorporated into the space is a very large living area, two built-in queen-sized bedrooms, a kitchenette and a bathroom.
