Australia's bushland has long been a source of
inspiration for many of Australia's renowned poets and artists. And when
you stand on one of the many terraces of this unique Northbridge home
and survey the dramatic terrain, you realise why our bush makes the perfect
Perched high on an escarpment overlooking spectacular Keep Reserve and
across to Sailors Bay, the home stands tall like an elegant Chateau. Stepping
down over four levels, it has been designed in relation to neighbouring
properties, the topography and microclimate, maximising views and cross
breezes and ensuring privacy.
One of the most striking aspects of the home is the way it truly melds
with its surrounds. Architect Michael Avramides has perfectly fulfilled
the brief - to 'put the home in the bush'. From the two-and-a-half storeys
of glass in the marble-tiled foyer, spacious balconies off bedrooms and
living areas, expansive windows, to the atrium-style family/meals room
- all take advantage of the panoramic views.
Beyond the Tuscan-influenced façade, there is another world to
discover - from the moment you enter. The magnificent foyer, stone courtyard
with fountain, curved staircase, exceptional entertaining areas, enormous
separate laundry, superb bedrooms and bathrooms - all combine to make
this an enchanting home.
Everything has been lovingly created - from the intricately designed wrought
iron balustrades and light fittings, imported Italian tiles in all bathrooms
and the foyer, terracotta tiled balconies, hand-made timber shutters and
nautically-inspired cedar windows, 'wash' paint scheme, lime-ash timber
cupboards and kitchen/family room floor and vaulted ceiling, quality wool
carpeting, ceiling fans, UV protection on windows and skylights, 'disappearing'
flyscreens, the list goes on.
Specific emphasis has been placed on the entertaining
areas. Enjoy cocktails in the formal lounge room complete with hide-away
wet bar, or move out onto the adjoining terrace - gaze at the views. For
a relaxed meal, the covered tiled barbecue area with in-built gas barbecue,
sink, dishwasher and fridge is perfect.
The open plan, island-style kitchen features highest-quality stainless
steel appliances, hot and cold filtered water and masses of cupboard space.
Flowing onto the family room, this area has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.
If you prefer to 'escape' from the world, there are many retreats. The
master bedroom is the only room on the upper level and opens due North
onto a spacious covered balcony. It even features 'his and hers' dressing
rooms and ensuites - ideal for couples with different 'styles'!
The second bedroom on the ground floor is another retreat, also with its
own large covered balcony. It features built-in wardrobe and ensuite with
spa bath looking out a 'porthole' onto established ferns. The third bedroom
opens onto the home's largest terrace, while the private study/fourth
bedroom is the ideal place to work quietly.
On the lower level is a self-contained studio apartment with bathroom
and kitchenette. Nestled among the ferns and with private entry, it is
ideal for guests, short or long term. Teenagers or in-laws could also
be accommodated long term in real style.
A sound-proofed gym area opening onto the lawn even features ceiling-mounted
television. There is also a generous sandstone wine cellar and workshop
area. A three car, tiled garage with ample storage and fourth, covered
car portico combine with extra space for off street guest parking to complete
Technologically, this home is cutting edge. It is completely wireless
enabling laptop use throughout the house; the television in master bedroom
is 'hidden' in the ceiling and operated by remote control; there's cabling
throughout; computer controlled lighting and surround-sound systems; video
intercom; extensive security systems; a PABX phone system; and separate
reverse cycle air-conditioning systems for different zones.
Historical Northbridge Baths and Northbridge Golf Course nearby enhance
the Village atmosphere, yet Sydney CBD is only a 7 minute drive, the airport
just 15 minutes away. Northbridge is one of the most sought after Sydney
suburbs for good reason with tremendous lifestyle investment potential.
This home is a timeless classic - and ideal for the lock-and-leave executive.
Sit on the balconies, listen to the birds, drink in the views and, perhaps,
write your own poetry.
