Mix of lux­ury and grandeur

IN­SPIRED by the lux­ury homes of the Hol­ly­wood Hills, this six-bed­room res­i­dence has a grand and el­e­gant de­sign.

On an im­mac­u­lately land­scaped 2711sq m, this twolevel house boasts im­pres­sive de­sign el­e­ments, in­clud­ing or­nate light­ing, warm neu­tral tones, and a com­bi­na­tion of tiles and car­pet floor­ing.

Be­yond the lush lawn, a long cir­cu­lar drive­way wraps around an is­land gar­den bed, flow­ing past the home’s ground level.

From the front porte cochere, the main en­try opens through into a sprawl­ing floor­plan.

Leading to the east­ern wing, a for­mal din­ing room in­cludes an open fire­place, while the ceil­ing has or­nate plas­ter cor­nic­ing.

This room flows through to a for­mal liv­ing area, which comes com­plete with the same ceil­ing cor­nice work, as well as a retro cock­tail cab­i­net and large sash win­dows over­look­ing the front gar­dens. A pow­der room is nearby. The op­u­lent main suite is across the hall­way, fea­tur­ing walk-in wardrobes, two en­suites and a sep­a­rate pow­der room. It also in­cludes french doors to a cen­tral court­yard.

To­wards the end of the east­ern wing’s hall­way is a large rum­pus room with a built-in bar and slid­ing french doors leading through to a side ter­race.

From this ter­race, there is ac­cess to a grassed area and the pool, while a nearby bath­room with shower pro­vides easy con­ve­nience for swim­mers.

Fi­nally, a home of­fice is ad­ja­cent to the rum­pus room, of­fer­ing the po­ten­tial to func­tion as a me­dia room or li­brary.

From the en­try, and leading to the western wing, a clas­sic kitchen en­joys a cen­tral po­si­tion. It has a break­fast bar, light tim­ber cab­i­netry, a stain­less-steel Ilve oven and tep­pa­nyaki plate.

A ca­sual din­ing area ad­joins the kitchen, with both ar­eas open­ing to the court­yard.

With a built-in bar­be­cue and per­gola, the court­yard is an ideal venue for out­door din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment.

Five nearby bed­rooms all in­clude built-in wardrobes, with four fea­tur­ing sash win­dows that open to a front ter­race.

One of these rooms also in­cludes an en­suite. Two bath­rooms and a laun­dry are also nearby.

On the lower level is a self­con­tained flat, with an open­plan lounge, din­ing and kitchen area. It also has a bed­room with a built-in wardrobe and en­suite, and a sep­a­rate en­try. It can be locked from the main house.

A four-car garage with stor­age fa­cil­i­ties com­pletes the lay­out. Additional fea­tures of the property in­clude air­con­di­tion­ing, mon­i­tored se­cu­rity and smoke alarms, as well as Vac­u­umaid and elec­tronic front gate se­cu­rity.

Close to the CBD, three ma­jor hos­pi­tals and pri­vate schools, the property also en­joys city glimpses and views stretch­ing across to the moun­tains.
