A private domain with a flair that is reminiscent of modern Mediterranean inspired living, this executive family home on just over half an acre provides beautiful spaces in which to unwind and stylishly entertain. Situated within an elevated and tightly held prestigious locale that is only 12km from the city, a highly coveted and sophisticated riverside lifestyle awaits the discerning buyer.
Occupying two spacious levels that are rich with bespoke interior design elements that draw upon the natural surroundings, the residence is visually elegant. This is a home that will host special occasions and large family get-togethers with ease, where the indoors flow to the outdoors with a continuity of style and theme.
With a welcoming entrance vestibule framed by ornamental wrought iron doors, a decorative style that features throughout the home, step across the exquisite green marble landing and into the main foyer. Beautifully crafted and hand laid American walnut parquetry floors grace the entire lower level, drawing your gaze onwards as you walk along the wide hallway, past a progression of room openings.
Opulent and luxurious, the formal living and dining room is resplendent with chandeliers, high ceilings and tall window openings that take in leafy views while maximising natural light and airflow. Extremely generous in size for grand long table dinner parties and cocktail evenings, this lovely room remains cosy and inviting with its large wall canvas niche, flanked by lavish drapes.
Everyday casual meals and family areas rest beside the sleek dark timber kitchen with freestanding island, walk in pantry and plenty of practical storage. Opening to the summer room, find a vast double height space with polished concrete floors and framed by an expertly manicured creeping ivy. Serving tables and green marble tiles feature at the terrace’s edge to form a soft conduit between the grass and the masonry surfaces.
On the upper level of the home, the master bedroom and three additional very large bedrooms are divided by a central family lounge and library area. Capturing river glimpses through the trees from the full height windows, this light filled space provides a quiet spot to read and relax at any time of day. Designer wallpaper highlights that add texture and inspire individuality, adorn each room.
The king-sized master suite is a luxurious parent’s retreat that overlooks the peaceful gardens below and features a voluminous walk-through robe and dressing room. Maintaining a colour harmony throughout the home, the uniformity of tiles, tones and surfaces provide a perfect base for all styling choices.
Creating a workshop that is air conditioned for comfort was a must for the owners of this home. Adjacent to the double garage, this dedicated hobby and workspace is functional and practical for a range of purposes. An office and powder room are also located on the ground level of the home for convenience and there is additional accommodation for up to two vehicles or a boat or caravan beside the garage.
Bordered by spectacular tall stands of mature bamboo, the large park-like allotment has enhanced privacy from neighbouring properties and provides lush lawns for the kids to kick a ball around and for pets to play. 3 minutes by car takes you to the highly regarded Fig Tree Pocket State School and the renowned, and much loved, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
