“PRIVILEGED SETTING, A BESPOKE MASTERPIECE”
Extraordinary expression of traditional design and classic elegance in this beautiful home that was built in the grand Victorian style. The home presides on the high-side over a special dual street access block, enjoying a privileged position adjacent to the vast expanses of Centennial Park. Its majestic facade is captivating, hinting at the elegance that lies within and framed within a lush green oasis of well-established easy-care gardens with water feature.
From the start the home is a flawless expression of traditional design and Victoria decadence with marble flooring, a stunning double height entry foyer with 'Gone with the Wind' style sweeping staircase and glamorous crystal lighting. Silk drapes and wallpaper finishes plus beautiful Australian Red Cedar joinery add a deep richness and authentic character to the feel.
The home has been created with a sandstone look and a full brick and suspended concrete build to create durability and solidity. Every piece of cabinetry including the built-in robes and even the beds have been commissioned as a one of a kind and have been custom built by a master craftsman.
The entry level of the home is given over to day-to-day living and entertaining featuring a vast formal dining room with 20 seat dining table and gas fireplace and a large family or TV room with a fully appointed bar. The bar includes multiple wine fridges, an ice maker and dishwasher. Adjoining is the casual living room framed in a wall of bi-folds that make it easy to transition between inside and out.
A generous kitchen draws inspiration from a classic American style boasting thick stone benchtops, an island bench, built-in breakfast bench, array of Miele ovens and warming drawer, Highlands gas and induction cook-top, a butler's pantry and dumb waiter to the lower level. This gourmet space connects to the expansive alfresco terrace creating the ideal environment for seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining all year around.
The bi-fold wall can be thrown open encouraging the cooling breezes and allowing access to the expansive rear terrace and delightful solar heated plunge pool with waterfall feature. This is a home that has been created to be palatial yet easy care, offering generous outdoor areas, low maintenance terraces and gardens and no lawns plus the benefit of continual water supply with a bore.
One of the home's more unique features is its vast fourteen car showroom style lock up garage that will satisfy even the most committed car, bike or boat collector. The garage enjoys access from the rear lane, a full bathroom, workbench with sink and an abundance of storage areas.
There are five over-sized bedrooms positioned on the upper level, each beautifully appointed with custom robes and ensuite bathrooms. Two open out to a large tessellated tiled terrace that captures magnificent views of the city. The master is a true lifestyle suite featuring an adjoining sitting/living with built-in TV, two balconies with vistas over Centennial Park, a luxurious spa ensuite with gold fittings.
This grand residence promises a lifestyle second to none. Cross the quiet road and enjoy the grounds of beautiful Centennial Park, stroll to The Entertainment Quarter and the SCG and be mere moments to Bondi Junction, beautiful beaches and the CBD. For the golf lover the home is a quick stroll to Moore Park Golf Course and is surrounded by quality educational facilities including Sydney Girls High School, Kensington Public School and the University of NSW.
