THERE is something to catch your eye and delight your senses in every room of this incredible home.
With views of Agett Park, amazing gardens with seven water features, mocha-toned travertine tiling and a divine kitchen, it offers luxury living on a grand scale.
The owner bought the original home on the 1443sq m corner block 12 years ago.
It was renovated and remodelled from top to bottom between 2010 – 2012 and it is apparent that no expense was spared.
Family, lifestyle, entertainment and creating a seamless indoor/outdoor residence were the themes behind the rebuild and they echo throughout the design, which offers 900sq m of living space over three stunning levels.
If you have guests to stay they will enjoy the lower ground floor with a living area with kitchenette/laundry and bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite.
It has garden access and could also be a good suite for an au pair or nanny.
The ground floor includes a formal living/dining area that opens to the wraparound, travertine-tiled terrace.
There is also an open-plan family room and kitchen.
The family area opens to the terrace and the kitchen is a chef’s dream with European appliances, two island benches (one is a dedicated eat-in space), beverages station and scullery.
There is also a bedroom, bathroom, and laundry with drying courtyard on this level.
The lavish master suite is on the first floor and includes a bedroom with octagonal, pitched, white timber-lined ceiling and windows offering views of the sky.
There is also a dressing room, walk-in robe and opulent ensuite.
The dressing room and bedroom open to a wraparound balcony with river glimpses and tree-top views.
There is a generously sized home office with an arched feature window and bespoke stone-topped cabinetry, two more bedrooms with built-in robes and desks and another bathroom on this floor.
The gardens are absolutely gorgeous and includes glades, creeper-clad arbours, lawns, garden beds with hedges and mature or ornamental plants, art and water features.
There is also a huge pool and a pavilion on the terrace with built-in kitchen including barbecue, icemaker, warming drawer and wine fridges.
The location is as desirable as the home, in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood, set among beautiful homes and gardens, with river walks on the doorstep and close to Claremont Quarter and a range of excellent private schools.
The owner said it had easy access to the city; with no congestion or traffic lights it was a 12 – 15-minute commute.
This magnificent home was built to suit a family but now that her children have moved out the owner is looking to downsize.
