Prestige riverfront living is back and better than ever with this newly finished, contemporary residence built over three commanding levels atop 794sqm of tightly held real estate with pool, boat ramp and pontoon. A statement in cutting-edge style it showcases fabulous design features that smoothly impress while also adding to the executive lifestyle and enviable entertainment options on offer. This is apparent from the outset, with its sleek facade of cedar panelling, muted tones in Alucobond and contemporary finishes forming a most impressive first impression.
Stepping inside, this metropolitan style is continued, with a striking timber art installation separating the foyer from the main staircase and a glass panel that has been set into the floor allowing visitors to literally walk over countless bottles of wine and champagne in the cellar below. All living, dining and casual entertaining plays out on this central floor, where an open plan design combined with plentiful windows, louvers and banks of sliding glass doors ensure the preservation of not only natural light and breezes, but the wonderful river views. Perfectly complementing its surrounds, the kitchen blends functionality with European designer style to great effect. Expansive charcoal stone bench tops provide a clean, streamlined look which is supported by capacious cabinetry in white and timber veneer. There is a butler’s pantry with sink and second dishwasher for effortless entertaining, while stainless steel appliances including in-wall espresso machine complete the gourmet experience.
The ground floor provides a secondary living zone geared almost exclusively to entertaining with a cellar, wet bar, home entertainment media zone and room for billiards or simply relaxing with friends. It flows out on two sides to a terrace which then leads down to the pool, heated spa, fenced yard and pontoon beyond. A grand central staircase forms the centrepiece to the home, linking the three floors as well as acting as an integral conduit of light and air. Furthermore, its striking design of timber, glass and stainless steel introduces a secondary purpose; that of a fully functioning art installation that can be viewed and admired from any angle. So as not to overwhelm, the palette has been kept largely all-white with superior natural elements including stone, steel and rich timbers used simply to highlight and enhance. Chosen with a restrained hand, these finishes create a feeling of quiet exclusivity which is further heightened by the grand proportions and generous use of conceptual lighting. Upstairs, there are three large children’s bedrooms (each with private garden views and walk-in wardrobes), as well as the family bathroom that has a bath, separate toilet and has been finished in luxurious Italian porcelain. The master bedroom is also located here and enjoys stunning river views as well as its own ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. There is a powder room, dual car garage, plentiful extra storage, ducted air, security, a vacuum system and smart wiring.
Combining its designer style, river views and grand proportions both inside and out, this contemporary property would be a highly prized home for any family. However adding the illustrious riverfront position and address to the list really elevates it to a whole new level, giving a cachet and appeal that ensures desirability, both now and into the future.
