RE­LAX AND UN­WIND IN THIS LUX­URY TANAWHA RES­I­DENCE THAT’S IDEAL FOR A MOD­ERN FAM­ILY

Life & Style Weekend - - HOT PROPERTY -

Imag­ine the ideal rain­for­est set­ting in which to re­lax and reset each and ev­ery day. Lo­cated in a peace­ful pocket of Tanawha, just a short drive from elite school­ing and ameni­ties, this stun­ning re­treat-style home caters to fam­i­lies, with care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion given to ev­ery de­tail from the ground up.

De­signed and built to take full ad­van­tage of its nat­u­ral sur­round­ings, out­stand­ing di­men­sions and a fam­ily-friendly floor plan means you’ll be spoilt for choice year-round with mul­ti­ple in­door and out­door liv­ing zones.

A feel­ing of tran­quil­ity is of­fered through­out the home with clean lines, neu­tral tones, a lush rain­for­est out­look from nearly ev­ery room in the house and ex­ter­nal Koi ponds which weave around the prop­erty’s perime­ter.

The par­ents’ wing com­bines an in­tox­i­cat­ing mix of warm tim­ber floor­ing and high-end ap­point­ments. The sump­tu­ous en­suite in­cludes stone bench­tops and a be­spoke soak­ing tub, a spa­cious rain shower head and large walk-in robe.

The 12-per­son heated in­door spa is ac­ces­si­ble via the master bed­room and pro­vides yet an­other spot to re­lax and un­wind at the end of a long day.

The chil­dren’s wing fea­tures three bed­rooms, a liv­ing room and abun­dant stor­age.

For the busy pro­fes­sional, home-based busi­ness is easy to op­er­ate here from ei­ther the ded­i­cated of­fice or the ex­tra en­suited guest wing, mak­ing it ideal for those need­ing to stay fo­cused on the job at hand.

En­joy use of the cin­ema room for fam­ily movie nights or en­ter­tain friends in one of the out­door din­ing rooms – both of which over­look the stun­ning gar­dens and dam.

All the crea­ture comforts are taken care of here with ducted air-conditioni­ng, ceil­ing

fans, smart-con­trolled au­dio sys­tems and vis­ual mon­i­tor­ing, to name just a few.

For those who like to keep fit, the fully equipped air-con­di­tioned gym­na­sium offers an ex­cel­lent work­out set­ting. Sur­rounded by lush trop­i­cal gar­dens and fea­tur­ing the calm­ing sounds of the nearby wa­ter fea­ture, this is also a great set­ting to en­joy a pri­vate yoga ses­sion.

If leisure pur­suits are more your style, the prop­erty has a 15m heated re­sort-style pool with spa and a full-sized flood-lit ten­nis court, which triples its use for bas­ket­ball or net­ball, ideal for a bit of friendly com­pe­ti­tion.

The pool house pro­vides an­other space for en­ter­tain­ment in the warmer months and fea­tures a gourmet kitchen and ex­tra bath­room.

The to­tally sep­a­rate two-bed­room guest house with a dis­abled-friendly bath­room and ex­tra laun­dry area pro­vides the type of flex­i­ble liv­ing op­tions mod­ern fam­i­lies of­ten need.

With large man­i­cured grassy ar­eas sur­rounded by 0.8ha of rain­for­est re­serve and a sea­sonal creek, the op­tion for a horse is avail­able. Or chil­dren can spend hours play­ing safely in the se­curely fenced gar­dens.
