This won­der­ful five-bed­room man­sion abounds with glitz and glam­our but it is the sub­lime wa­ter vis­tas that truly makes this Sor­rento home spe­cial

LAV­ISH is an un­der­state­ment when it comes to la­belling this Sor­rento man­sion, but it is the wa­ter, sky­line and moun­tain views that are its big­gest sell­ing point.

Own­ers Yu and Wing Kwan Tang bought the prop­erty al­most eight years ago af­ter fall­ing in love with its wa­ter­front po­si­tion.

“The first thing for me was the north to wide wa­ter po­si­tion,” Dr Yu Tang said.

“Be­cause we’ve got re­ally nice wide wa­ter and sky­line views, it’s re­ally peace­ful.

Splashes of fea­ture wall­pa­per as well as nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing quartz and white onyx, scat­tered through­out give it a so­phis­ti­cated style.

A com­bined kitchen, liv­ing and din­ing area is at the heart of the home, which has a floor-to-ceil­ing curved glass wall that frames wa­ter vis­tas.

Slide open the bi-fold doors and an al­fresco ter­race with a ceil­ing TV, fire­place, and bar­be­cue ex­pands to­wards the wa­ter while over­look­ing the pool and spa.

A large sound­proof me­dia room with drop- down pro­jec­tor and bar as well as a home of­fice are also on the first floor.

The top floor is ded­i­cated to four bed­rooms, two of which have their own
