Es­cape to your own luxe re­sort

This mega man­sion is like a pri­vate re­sort with lux­ury fea­tures in­clud­ing a pool, sauna, wine cel­lar and li­brary — and it’s right in the mid­dle of sub­ur­bia

IT may be in the heart of sub­ur­bia but this water­front man­sion re­sem­bles a pri­vate, lux­ury re­treat miles away from civil­i­sa­tion.

The sprawl­ing Bun­dall prop­erty at 13-17 Binda Place blends clas­sic ele­gance with a trop­i­cal re­sort.

Mar­ble, lime­stone and wood ac­cen­tu­ate the home’s op­u­lence while ex­trav­a­gant light fixtures are stand­out fea­tures in al­most ev­ery room.

Its lav­ish style was part of the rea­son Gregory Camp­bell and Beckie Pear­son Camp­bell bought the prop­erty in 2016.

“We were search­ing for a prop­erty with fully con­tained bed­rooms and en­suites for each of our grow­ing chil­dren and also wanted a ground floor mas­ter suite with an as­pect to the wa­ter,” Mrs Pear­son Camp­bell said.

“We couldn’t help but feel that we had found lux­ury but more so we had found a home.”

The im­pres­sive home has five bed­rooms and nine bath­rooms, in­clud­ing an out­door shower and toi­let.

The fam­ily wasted no time turn­ing it into the lux­u­ri­ous prop­erty it is to­day.

“We set about ren­o­vat­ing and dec­o­rat­ing each of the rooms to max­imise the live­abil­ity while Greg con­cen­trated on the ren­o­va­tion of the re­sort pool area,” Mrs Pear­son Camp­bell said.

Down­stairs, there is an open kitchen, liv­ing and din­ing area that flows seam­lessly out­doors.

It also of­fers an of­fice, li­brary, wine cel­lar and gym.

One of the most im­pres­sive rooms on the ground floor is the sunken mas­ter bed­room, which boasts views to the east over­look­ing the wa­ter and city sky­line.

It has a designer dress­ing room with full cab­i­netry, bev­elled mir­rored doors and a drawer unit as its cen­tre­piece.

Up­stairs, there are four ad­di­tional bed­rooms with en­suites.

This in­cludes the guest wing, which has a rum­pus room, separate home cin­ema and ter­race.

The out­door en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas sur­rounded by trop­i­cal gar­dens are sure to im­press with a pool and spa, in­door sauna and ten­nis court.

The home also has a pri­vate boat ramp with winch, dry dock and two boat sheds.

The fam­ily were sad to leave the home but work over­seas meant they needed to sell.

“It has been such a joy to live in our own re­sort and en­joy a spe­cial morn­ing rit­ual of show­er­ing out­side among the land­scape,” Mrs Pear­son Camp­bell said.

“The fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties are end­less with ten­nis, wa­ter sports and pool side re­lax­ation.”

The man­sion is close to park­lands, the lo­cal turf club, schools, the beach and world­class shop­ping, din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment precincts.
