IN­SPIRED by Hol­ly­wood icons, this seven-bed­room pala­tial man­sion in Stret­ton of­fers 2500sq m of in­ter­nal liv­ing space.

Set on a 4047sq m block, the home was built in 2000 and is closed off from the street by dou­ble wrought iron gates.

A cir­cu­lar drive­way leads to the soar­ing Gre­cian por­tico in­spired by the glam­our of

Man­i­cured hedges and pine trees, cas­cad­ing gar­den beds and fountains help com­plete the pic­ture of Hol­ly­wood grandeur.

Corinthian tim­ber doors with stun­ning glass­work above open to a mar­ble foyer with void and sky­light above.

The grand mar­ble stair­case is an homage to

and fea­tures in­tri­cate wrought iron and brass balustrades.

Most of the liv­ing ar­eas are on this floor with the for­mal lounge and din­ing rooms to one side and bor­dered by mar­ble col­umns and walk­ways.

The lounge spans the length of the wing and boasts a gas fire­place, while the din­ing room is be­side an en­suited bed­room with walk-in wardrobe.

On the other side of the en­try is a fam­ily room and sitting room with a full wet bar and two of­fices along­side.

In the cen­tre of the floor is the kitchen and ca­sual din­ing room with both look­ing to the ex­pan­sive back yard through more than two storeys of glazed win­dows.

The kitchen has two of ev­ery­thing in­clud­ing gas cook­tops, ovens, dish­wash­ers and freez­ers, as well as black gran­ite bench­tops, an espresso ma­chine and but­ler’s pantry.

Up from the en­try floor are the bed­rooms with the main bed­room boast­ing an awein­spir­ing amount of space, a built-in en­ter­tain­ment cup­board, sitting area, bal­cony, huge walk-in wardrobe and a mar­ble ensuite with a spa bath, and is­land van­ity with a basin on both sides.

Also on this floor are five bed­rooms, three with en­suites and walk-in wardrobes, with two en­suites boast­ing spa baths.

Be­tween the two wings and with a void on ei­ther side is a sitting area that looks to the drive­way and pool area and also boasts a powder room and kitch­enette.

One level down from the en­try is a huge games room with wet bar, a gym with squash court and a 16-seater theatre with arm­chairs and pro­jec­tor.

The top floor was built for en­ter­tain­ment and fea­tures a deck, spa, kitch­enette, sky­lights with elec­tronic blinds and a bath­room.

Com­plet­ing the re­sort feel of the prop­erty is the back yard which in­cludes an in­ground pool, ten­nis court, en­ter­tain­ing area and pool house.

The sprawl­ing res­i­dence also fea­tures a lift to all four floors, a zoned alarm sys­tem, in­ter­com and ducted vac­uum sys­tem.
