The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE - STEPHEN NADIN

WITH an el­e­gant French pro­vin­cial de­sign, this ex­pan­sive es­tate en­com­passes 4ha of living and leisure space just 15km from the city.

At the front of the prop­erty, elec­tric front gates open to land­scaped gar­dens, a pool house, worker’s cottage, pool and ten­nis court, with a pri­vate drive­way wind­ing past green lawns to the luxury main res­i­dence.

The two-level house boasts a charm­ing French fa­cade with cus­tom wrought iron doors, while its spa­cious floor­plan of­fers for­mal and ca­sual communal spa­ces and five bed­rooms.

Adding a sense of op­u­lence through­out are qual­ity fin­ishes such as stone, ex­posed tim­ber beams, chan­de­liers, french doors and white tim­ber shut­ters.

Sep­a­rate fam­ily and lounge rooms sit in the cen­tre of the lower level floor­plan, with the for­mal lounge area fea­tur­ing large stone floor tiles, chan­de­liers and an or­nate work­ing fire­place.

Vast tim­ber-framed win­dows and glass bi-fold doors al­low for abun­dant nat­u­ral light and of­fer views of the pool and gar­dens, with the doors open­ing to an ex­pan­sive cov­ered ter­race.

The kitchen oc­cu­pies a light­filled space nearby, flow­ing to an open-plan dining area with di­rect ac­cess to the ter­race.

Kitchen fea­tures in­clude sleek Bianco Ro­mano gran­ite benches, qual­ity Qa­sair, Miele and Nef ap­pli­ances, a Zip hy­dra tap and a but­ler’s pantry with a dou­ble sink.

There is also ex­ten­sive tra­di­tional white cab­i­netry and an is­land bench, while the el­e­gant decor in­cor­po­rates rich tim­ber floor­ing, dec­o­ra­tive light­ing and soar­ing ceil­ings with ex­posed tim­ber beams.

Also on the ground level is the stylish main bed­room, of­fer­ing a vast dress­ing room and a lav­ish en­suite with or­nate de­tail, dual van­i­ties and a claw­foot bath­tub.

Four other bed­rooms sit on the up­per level, with vary­ing fea­tures in­clud­ing walk-in wardrobes, built-in cab­i­netry and en­suites.

The house of­fers a seam­less flow to the many out­door leisure ar­eas, in­clud­ing a flood­lit ten­nis court, 20m in­ground pool com­plete with a div­ing board, and a self­con­tained pool house in­cor­po­rat­ing a home cinema, 3D pro­jec­tor and fire­place.

A nearby work­ers’ cottage in­cludes two bed­rooms, a bath­room and living and kitchen ar­eas.

Com­ple­ment­ing this grand prop­erty are fur­ther high­lights, in­clud­ing horse pad­docks, a chicken coop and sprawl­ing green lawns.
