Offered to the market for the second time only since its construction in 1958 this spectacular estate is for those with discerning standards and an eye for beauty. In stark contrast to the rolling fields with its crisp white finish, refined neutral joinery and polished elements of concrete and stone, this residence sits high and proud across the hill commanding views of the sprawling eight lush acres.
Spanning across a single level and comprised of four wings (children's wing, parent's wing, guest wing and staff wing, which is now the two bedroom self-contained granny flat) this 1,001 square metre home was originally designed by prominent architects Cook & Kerrison. Still maintaining its character but with interesting architectural elements, it offers a family-centred design focused on comfort with a relaxed yet sophisticated, luxury lodge feel created by multiple living and entertaining spaces that effortlessly intertwine. Neutral colour palette and natural materials incorporate crisp tones and original hardwood floors to create a home that is both practical and visually engaging.
A clever use of glass and louvres maintains a constant visual connection with the lush surrounds while maximising on natural light and airflow. Internal areas extend out through expansive bi-folds, opening nearly all living spaces up to private decks and an impressive covered entertainment area that gives way to a tranquil, sparkling in-ground pool. Effortless outdoor dining is a reality with built-in surround sound and built-in slimline BBQ.
Grandly proportioned living areas are connected by an impressive gourmet kitchen. Demonstrating superior fit, finish and durability, it features lavish Calacatta marble, timber floors, rich cabinetry, walk-in pantry and a full range of Miele appliances; a fantastic gathering point for indoor entertaining and celebrations.
Five oversized bedrooms and five bathrooms capitalise on the spectacular environment, each one framed by the expansive vistas of this sprawling rural estate. Exceptional additional features further ensure every need is not only met but exceeded. This includes a fireplace, large home office, media room, sunroom, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning and oodles of storage throughout.
The generosity of the facilities is repeated outdoors with eight sprawling acres bordered by established Camphor Laurel trees and the charming Cubberla Creek. The largest land holding left on prestigious Jesmond road, the fenced, wide open spaces include a fully lit tennis court, four stables, tack room, wash bay, dressage arena, milking shed and even a chicken coop. Inviting unbridled children's (and adult) play, this is truly unrestricted living.
