LUXURIOUS PALATIAL ESTATE - DREAM DUAL LIVING


Celebrating the timeless classic elegance of past architectural history, complete with decorative bull-nose verandahs and intricate timber fretwork, this magnificent 585 square metre mansion (approx - including the garage and surrounding decks) is located on 3.47 elevated hectares bordered by immaculate gardens, manicured parklike grounds and mature bushland. A gated entrance with intercom access directs callers along the sealed, lit driveway, deviating to access the second dwelling and terminating at the primary residence with circular driveway and tiered central water feature. Three car garaging and a one bedroom nanny annexure with ensuite (approx 91 square metres) connects to the main home via a covered walkway.

Flawlessly designed, this exquisite home transitions effortlessly from the major-impact entry foyer featuring a spectacular chandelier, followed by a number of others throughout the house - one of which is the original from the old homestead - leadlight glass doors, dramatically papered walls and gleaming timber floors. Expansive living areas occupy the north-facing side of the home off the straight wide 30 metre long hallway with bedrooms and executive study or home office on the other. With 4 metre high studs, the ceilings soar to infinity throughout this beautiful private haven where sculpted pillared arches, moulded plaster ornate ceilings, bay windows, beautiful leadlight double hung windows, rich drapes and the very best of fittings and fixtures have been used. Comfort is paramount with central and gas underfloor heating systems running in tandem - one for each side of the house. There is also a smart vent system. Three huge sumptuously decorated living spaces surround the dining area which flows past a seating bench into the superbly appointed traditional kitchen and servery to one of the two large under-cover outdoor recreation and garden-side al fresco areas, boasting tranquil rural views. The enormous deck on this side boasts a clever vergola, making it an ideal venue at any time of year.

The master bedroom is a masterpiece, large and luxurious with his and hers walk-in robes, large ensuite with rain head and regular shower-heads and his and hers vanities. There are three further generous, light bedrooms, one of which has its own ensuite. The family bathroom is spacious with bath and shower - there's a powder room and, of course, a separate large laundry.

Outdoors the 15 metre Donaldson infinity pool is heated for year-round comfort and includes a large shallow kid's paddling area and for the ultimate in relaxation, there's also a hot tub. Extensive Kwila decking surrounds provide the perfect venue for stylish relaxation and poolside entertaining. Privately positioned there's also a charming 101 square metre cottage complete with kitchen, family living area, lounge with fireplace, two bedrooms and bathroom, a conservatory plus a multi-purpose room / bedroom / study - perfect for guests, extended family or a teen's dream. There is also one large 4 bay farm shed plus a separate tractor shed, and many other extras - including a fabulous wine cellar.

This is a blue-chip residence of lavish proportions, furnished in regal style and geared for executive entertaining at a most sophisticated level. Interested parties are invited to arrange a private inspection at their earliest convenience.
