Substantially sophisticated: Your private perch in paradise
Sometimes words are not enough to describe a property as breathtaking as this. Beautiful and spacious inside, 121 Polo Prince Drive comes with grandstand views of the great outdoors, and is as close as it gets to a slice of paradise that’s within commuting distance to the big hustle. Located in the semi-rural setting of upmarket Alfriston, this six-bedroom brick beauty is perfect for those who would like to leave town at the end of the day to their own private retreat - but can’t wait to rejoin the townies back in the morning! Set at the end of a long driveway on a rolling 5010 square metres section, this substantial and stylish executive home includes all conveniences for the busy family. A two-bedroom unit attached to the main dwelling adds further to the appeal of this property. It’s ideal for extended family or teenagers who want their own space, or could be utilised as a home and income. It has its own single garage, while the main home enjoys an internal access double garage. There’s also off-street parking for extra vehicles or the family boat. This estate is not your standard-issue landscaped garden, it also includes a couple of paddocks to raise a few sheep for the kids. The main entrance leads you into a large, elegant foyer. To the left is a formal lounge with high stud ceiling, a cathedral-type window on one side, and a row of sweeping windows on the other that stream in all the light you could possibly want. From here you move on to the large open plan dining area, a semi-open plan blue-themed kitchen that’s a statement in style, and a spacious informal living area that’s private and opens via huge bi-fold doors to the fully fenced entertainment area out back. With a covered patio that’s the ultimate in alfresco dining, landscaped gardens, mature trees and unbroken views, this property is perfect for summer living. There’s a study downstairs that faces the yard so you can keep an eye on the front of the home. The master bedroom downstairs comes with a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. All other bedrooms have been positioned for excellent views and daylight. In total there are three bathrooms and four toilets. While located far from the madding crowd, don’t for a moment think there aren’t any city amenities. There’s town supply water and a bio-cycle sewerage system. Plus there are excellent schools and retail therapy close by. OPEN HOME: Sundays 1pm-1.40pm. AUCTION: On site, Saturday, December 8, 2007 at 12 noon, open one hour prior.
