LIVE IT UP ON THE CLIFTON RIVIERA
Journey into opulence and European grandeur at this impeccable estate on the Clifton Peninsula. The Belle Epoque lifestyle of the French Riviera's rich and famous is within your reach here. Modelled on the Tuscan-style palazzo Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, built by Beatrice de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on the Mediterranean, this wonderful home will make jaws drop.
Located at the end of a long, palm tree-lined driveway in this prestigious enclave close to Whitford, it brings romantic style and formidable architecture together. A columned entranceway leads to the grand foyer, where the decadence can be fully experienced. A voluminous, marble-tiled atrium fills the home with natural light.
The sweeping, curved staircase is a focal point. But, if you want to experience true modern convenience, forego the stairs and hop in the lift. The grand kitchen and formal dining and living areas brim with luxury detailing, including brass handles and granite surfaces. Making the most of the north-facing aspect, your dinner parties will be the talk of the town!
The manicured, view-filled lawns will be set to host the most exclusive soirees that even the French bourgeoise would be proud of. A private courtyard is a calm setting. Upstairs, the master bedroom with an oversized en-suite, impressive walk-in closet and Juliet balcony offering uninterrupted views of Rangitoto is the pinnacle of luxury living. With six bedrooms in total, four bathrooms and triple garaging there's an abundance of space.
Superb additions include underfloor heating, handcrafted, antique chandeliers, wrought-iron railings, imported European curtains, smart tech throughout and a thermal water bore.
The peaceful, private coastal location is within a few minutes drive of both the Pine Harbour Marina - where you can catch a ferry to the CBD - and Whitford village, with its cafes, pony club and golf course.
And it's still just a 30-minute trip from the airport. It is in the zone for Shelly Park School, Somerville Intermediateand Howick College, and is on the bus route for private Saint Kentigern's College.
Live a life that French nobility would aspire to in this elite estate.
