Presenting a sophisticated residence of immense proportions, where the architectural vision and intention has been to deliver a luxury abode for all the family to enjoy, discover this contemporary entertainer in the prestigious riverside suburb of Tennyson. Wrapped around a stunning central courtyard and 13 metre lap pool, the multiple living areas spread across both scopious levels draw you to experience the tranquil outdoors, with minimal effort.
With exquisite timber floors and wide glass openings, a striking 5.5m freestanding kitchen island and outside teppanyaki grill, media and games room, gym and sauna, experience the sheer luxury, and entertaining and recreational credentials that this upmarket address offers.
Situated on a very large 1067m2 allotment (over 1/4 of an acre,) the imposing stature of this architecturally designed residence ably captures the perfect, and most desirable, north facing aspect to which it is directed. With just under 898m2 of living under roof, originally constructed as a builder’s own residence, it is clear to see the level of detail and quality craftsmanship that has been delivered throughout, is without compromise.
Natural airflow crosses and cools both the upper level living and accommodation areas, and fills the ground floor with freshness and light. Beautifully on-trend, the sheer drapes move with the breeze, and automated blinds provide shade when necessary.
Secluded and secure, access to the home is by remote activated driveway and camera operated visitor gates. Core-filled block walls the front of the property’s boundary are insulative, promoting the resort inspired exclusiveness and privacy that this house possesses in abundance.
A grand entry foyer with high ceiling and suspended chandelier sets the tone for the voluminous interiors that lay ahead, while the satin finished hardwood timbers that adorn the floors, flow throughout the generous family living and formal dining spaces. This main gathering room is warm and welcoming, with custom built-in entertainment cabinetry and wall mounted timber joinery, and grass weave feature wallpaper application. The fluid layout cannot help but spur relaxation and contentment.
Designed to grant access to the courtyard from wherever you are, cedar framed bifold and sliding glass doors provide a seamless transition from in to out, the glass balustrade edged pool, formal landscaped gardens and lawn, impeccably maintained. Whether enjoying a summer family barbeque, entertaining a few dinner guests or hosting a milestone celebration, you can be assured of remaining connected with those near to you, in spectacular fashion.
Step down into the kitchen, a superb, chef inspired cooking and serving area that combines an exceptional level of inclusions with a decidedly high-end flair. A 5.5 metre long central island with stone, waterfall edged surfaces and pendant lighting above, is stunning to look at and offers supreme functionality, seating at least eight if required. Dual AEG ovens sit under a stainless-steel meal preparation worktop, there is a gas five burner cooktop, semi-integrated Miele dishwasher, two fridge spaces and walk in pantry, all set within stylish, streamlined timber cabinetry and against black glass splashbacks.
The enclosed outdoor built-in kitchen design holds both teppanyaki and barbeque grills, and has a sink, wine fridge provision and plenty of necessary storage. Pool to BBQ to covered alfresco dining – it is all here for your enjoyment.
A craftsman made timber joinery installation has created a ceiling-height library with ladder and a soothing, reader’s passageway that encourages you to grab a book and sit for a while. Perfectly situated, this quiet section of the residence is away from the main living area.
Through double doors is the spacious family games and media room, perfect for teenagers and their friends. A traditional billiard table light hangs above the ideal table location, and a ceiling mounted projector, large screen and the surround sound speakers relay movies, sports and music videos dynamically.
A purpose-built light and airy gym room with heavy duty rubber flooring and a commercial grade 10 person, heated coal sauna adjoins the games zone; a bathroom to service gym and swimming pool users also opening directly to the courtyard.
Open riser style timber steps lead to the upper level accommodation areas, where a large, multiple-use family living area borders the stairwell aperture, opening to an enormous, elevated terrace with pool and garden views. Bathed in sunlight and cooled by cross-breezes, this is a great spot at any time of day to enjoy some refreshments and have a break from work or study.
Each of the five king-sized bedrooms on this floor are luxuriously appointed, with walk in robes, lounge seating, bookcase and study desk areas, and either a deluxe, private ensuite or access to a shared two-way bathroom.
The master suite offers relaxation inducing, retreat inspired living with doors that open onto the south facing terrace. Separate, custom designed his and hers walk in dressing rooms with multi-level shelving and rails, dedicated shoe and tie storage, and a lavish ensuite with spa bath, elongated dual basin vanity and private shower space indulges the senses.
On the lower level, an oversized, front courtyard facing bedroom, makes an elegant guest suite, with two-way bathroom and large walk-in robe. Suitable also for use as a private, large-scale office with access for visitors, this room is separated from living areas and remains beautifully quiet.
A powder room for guests is situated near to the dining area. The large laundry with under bench appliance storage has been designed to provide an abundance of functional benchtop space plus hanging rail, with a walk-in linen and laundry storage cupboard adjacent that could ideally be utilised as a wine cellaring room. Plentiful storage across the entire home has been carefully considered.
The three car garage with extra height openings and epoxy floor, opens both to the entry foyer and games room. Three phase power and air conditioning features throughout, with a ducted system to the upper level and efficient split systems for individual areas on the expansive ground floor.
Back to base alarm system and video intercom visitor gate monitoring work to ensure that the residence remains secure and can be controlled within the home or by your smart phone.
Space, style and seclusion is offered here at 42 King Arthur Terrace.
