LIKENED to some­thing out of Dubai, this pala­tial res­i­dence is a dream home for some­one with cham­pagne tastes. A swim­ming pool and spa with Ver­sace-style mo­saic tiles, mar­ble floors and an el­e­va­tor are ex­am­ples of the plush in­te­rior while a glimpse of the floor­plan re­veals a de­sign that is as prac­ti­cal as it is lux­u­ri­ous.

It’s size of 660sq m alone should give home­buy­ers an in­sight into its grand scale po­ten­tial.

Agent Kay Mor­ris says the at­ten­tion to de­tail with the mod­ern box beam ceil­ings, the beau­ti­ful hand­made, wrought-iron balustrad­ing . . . it is just gor­geous.

‘‘It’s ab­so­lutely op­u­lent, it’s like some­thing from Dubai,’’ she says.

Upon en­trance to the home the large liv­ing and din­ing area is on the right.

Here the new own­ers can im­press their guests as they en­joy for­mal en­ter­tain­ing, or a brandy night cap be­fore bed.

The mas­ter is also on this floor and is near the front of the home with an en­suite, spa and built-in wardrobes.

At the rear of the ground floor is the in­for­mal, open-plan liv­ing area which takes in the qual­ity kitchen, meals and fam­ily room and flows on to the rum­pus room. Ms Mor­ris says this area will be where most of the en­ter­tain­ing takes place.

The kitchen fea­tures floor-to­ceil­ing win­dows and over­looks the stylish lap pool.

The up­per floor is where the other three bed­rooms are, in­clud­ing one with en­suite and walk-in wardrobe.

The other two bed­rooms also have walk-in wardrobes and bed­room four also has ac­cess to a rear­fac­ing bal­cony that over­looks the ten­nis court.

This bal­cony can also be ac­cessed via the large the­atre room and gives the kids a re­treat to call their own.

A front-fac­ing bal­cony can be opened by all as it runs off the land­ing.

Wine con­nois­seurs will ap­pre­ci­ate the wine cel­lar which can be ac­cessed ei­ther by lad­der or el­e­va­tor.

While the home is ex­trav­a­gant in de­sign, the new own­ers won’t have to worry about an equally as ex­trav­a­gant up­keep.

‘‘One of the un­be­liev­able things about this prop­erty is that you have a huge home but it’s very low main­te­nance,’’ Ms Mor­ris says.
