The single level home is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens
and rolling lawns – all of which enhance the character and feeling
of tranquillity and privacy. From the front of the home, you can enjoy
the lovely district views, which take in the vast playing grounds of one
of Sydney’s premier private schools, Knox Grammar.
A three car garage/storage area is well located to the ‘side’
of the home. It also features a self-contained office/guest suite.
The marble floored foyer features the most intricately designed high ceiling
with discreet lighting, sidelights and highlights to maximise the natural
light; the delightful formal lounge again features a magnificent ceiling,
panelled walls with lighting to highlight artworks, a stunning marble
fireplace, and French doors opening onto the verandah.
The rooms are formal and relaxed, and each with their own ambience and
charm. Clever designer ‘touches’ really define the character
of the rooms: ceilings are intricately designed; windows, highlights and
sidelights maximise the views and natural light; timber archways perfectly
separate and link rooms; clever paint schemes enhance the character of
different rooms; a combination of timber, tiled and wool-carpeted floors
define specific areas.
A wide hallway leads to five bedrooms, four bathrooms and internal laundry.
A highlight is the gorgeous sunny master suite with huge bay window and
door opening onto the verandah. Be amazed by the exquisite and carefully
created dome-style ceiling. With its walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite
with spa bath, this is a true parents’ retreat.
The second bedroom also features an ensuite, a private entrance and balcony
– perfect for teenagers or as a guest room.
Emphasis on entertaining
The home features a myriad of entertaining areas, covered front verandah,
sandstone terraced pool and sundeck, sun-drenched courtyard/barbecue area
with fountain, charming rear paved terrace, full-size tennis court, to
the vast pavilion with sauna, spa, bathroom and bar fridge. There is also
a climate-controlled wine cellar. Depending on the time of day, season
or the ‘mood’, there is an entertaining area to suit.
The fantastic music room in the main home has a huge picture window which
looks onto the courtyard, perfectly ‘framing’ the fountain.
And the room flows onto the rumpus/games room, which is large enough for
a full size billiards table.
There is a formal dining room which opens onto a paved terrace, highlighted
by a gorgeous heart-shaped garden bed. The modern, open plan kitchen has
ample cupboards and bench space and a sunny breakfast nook. And if you
want to ‘escape’ and read, do some work, or have a quiet after-dinner
drink, the timber study with inbuilt bookshelves is the ideal spot. There
is even a wet bar behind wooden-panelled doors.
Located in the delightful suburb of Warrawee, derived from the Aboriginal
word meaning ‘rest awhile’ or ‘stop here’, the
home is just 20km from Sydney CBD and 35 minutes to the airport. St Ives
Shopping Village and Westfield Hornsby are only a short drive; Chatswood
is just 15 minutes away; lush green reserves, national parks and private
schools within easy proximity; stroll to buses, train and cosmopolitan
