This amazing traditional country mansion complete with French style parterre, secret hedged garden and expansive coastal views could be yours. All your romantic dreams come true in this extraordinary 1.77 ha (nearly 4.5 acres) property, for the family that wants the finest peaceful rural lifestyle just 35 minutes by Pine Harbour ferry to the CBD.
The handsome shingled home reminds of a classic New Hampshire sea coast lodge with north-facing views over Formosa Golf Resort across to the city and Gulf Islands. Anticipation builds as you enter through security gates and roll through crisply groomed lawns to arrive in one of the most impressive reception foyers you have ever seen. Not just large, but the finely detailed wood panelling and staircase are exquisite. The home is full of stunning character features - high ceilings, leadlights, beautiful fireplaces, even a huge original laundry/butler's pantry with secret servants' passage.
A series of elegant, well-connected living and entertaining areas, plus a full bar and stunning modern farmhouse kitchen open up to the pool terrace so you can bask in sun while watching children play, enjoying that sublime backdrop. When it comes to the big games, head to the vast and versatile media room upstairs featuring the big screen and projector. There's an office and three beautifully renovated bedrooms include an extra-generous master ensuite with walk-in dressing robe. The fourth self-contained bedroom suite adjacent the triple garage is great for guests. And there's still more room to expand in the attic should you desire more space.
Moments from Pine Harbour Marina with school buses that go past the gate, this no-compromise estate is simply divine. Own it or forever regret.
