Description

Exclusive. Romantic.
Cutting edge contemporary design in Cammeray’s best street.


Visionary waterfront design

This exceptional Folly Point property, set on approx. 590 sqm of North facing waterfront land was built in 1999 by multi award-winning building company Bellevarde. From conception to construction no corner has been cut. Minimal in its approach yet warm in ambience, this is an exciting example of the contemporary Sydney domestic dream and a rare opportunity to invest in a 60 square home of quality designed by Dr Stephen Lesiuk.

Body perfect
An inspired, unflinching application of the very best materials and fittings makes for a completely uniform quality statement. It is sleek and sensual with incredible light levels assisted by the cool floors of imported creamy white limestone and perfect white sculptured walls. Drive down into a discreet cul-de-sac series of garages, below street level, park and place your luggage in the mini-lift. Leave your shoes at the door and feel the cool of the pristine floors underfoot. Let the soft, opaque light filter stress. Glimpse Zen-inspired marble roof terracing and harbour waters along the way as you descend a white corridor to the generous ground floor. Relax. The garden is designed to take care of itself. Security is total.

A design savvy neighbourhood
Contemporary architecture sets out to create mood, atmosphere and feeling. But what about the neighbours? With creations by luminary Australian architects Rick Le Plastrier to the left and Harry Seidler to the right, the sheer calibre of surrounding architecture defines this as a street of pedigree enjoyed by those who love style. Set snug into one of the prettiest, deep waterfrontages in Cammeray, this property offers discretion and spectacular panoramic water views of Middle Harbour opposing natural reserve of Northbridge Golf Course. It combines visionary design, masterfully executed with the natural beauty of one of the most desirable addresses of the lower North Shore.

Perfect components for the modern Australian way
This design of this home reflects current Australian lifestyle priorities. Every element has been carefully considered from the pale Ash timbers and striking elegance of the black Jetmaster fireplace to the sweep of customised stainless steel in the well-equipped, open plan kitchen. Even the position of the kitchen, located at the forefront of the house within view of passing yachts and the extended jetty below maximises pleasure. A dramatically-lit canopy-style roof gives the appearance of hovering above the main glass structure while a series of opening glass walls gives total, front-to-back flexibility to the courtyard/lounge below. Such dynamic, innovative architecture creates a modern lifestyle by prioritising light levels, water views, privacy, space and personal style.

Let the experience begin
The structure has been purpose-built for unabashed year-round entertaining. The breathtaking, pavilion style main level combines three separate year-round relaxation/dining areas. The sleek huge balcony glinting with maritime railing and offering unparalleled, mesmerising views is an open adjunct to an elegant lounge/dining/food & wine indoors area. This connects to a completely protected glass-enclosed inner courtyard complete with stunning freshwater plunge pool and spa, light-filled gymnasium, sauna, barbeque and ample room for dining, sunning and lounging. The study/home office with filing room adjacent to the courtyard has been cleverly designed to convert into the ultimate guest terrace.

Two separate guest bedrooms, with walk-in dressing rooms and bathroom with spa sit high on an upper level. A luxurious master bedroom takes up the entire lower level and features a huge galley dressing room and spectacular bathroom with twin sinks and water views from the chic-est of baths.

A position like no other
Unlike many others in Middle Harbour, even in exclusive Cammeray Road, this property is built close to the waters edge to maximise the delights of harbour side life. The clinking of moored yachts, the pungent freshness of the tides, the conversation of gulls and a full leisurely wooden boat deck, complete with charming boat house provide the kind of escapism that will give you the feeling of being on a permanent holiday. On a practical note, boat lovers will relish in the utility and complete versatility of a deepwater pen, 9 feet deep, currently approved for a 40-foot craft.

Cammeray - Secret gateway
Despite unique privacy and proximity to natural beauty, this Folly Point position on Cammeray Road is still, remarkably, only 7 minutes drive from the centre of Sydney. Via a discreet connection to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, your first actual stop is the tollway. The very best shopping, private schools and access to the Harbour Tunnel and Eastern Distributor are conveniently close. Full communication needs are covered with Cable TV and high-speed Internet access, plus full security for complete relaxation.
