This garden has been nurtured over 36 years
Every spring, the gardens of this Castle Hill home burst into a kaleidoscope of colours with magnificent azaleas in full bloom.
Extensively landscaped and nurtured by its owners for the past 36 years, the 929sq m property has been listed on the market for the first time.
The grand residence, located at on the high side of George Mobbs Drive — one of Castle Hill’s prettiest tree-lined streets — and is close to schools, shops and parklands.

It has a circular driveway framed by shaped shrubs, mature trees, Bonsai plants and a carpet-like front lawn.
Agent Leanne Nehme from LJ Hooker Baulkham Hills described the property as a `timeless classic’ located in a quiet pocket of the suburb away from development.
“The gardens are absolutely stunning while inside it has an extraordinary level of detail,’’ she said.
“There is potential to update the home to a Hamptons style residence.”
The home opens to reveal an Italian marble foyer with a sweeping curved staircase and stunning crystal chandelier.

Just off the entry, is an elegant formal loungeroom large enough to accommodate a baby grand piano.
A decorative archway separates it from the adjoining formal dining room. Both areas are styled in neutral tones and have wool carpets.
On the other side of the foyer is a good-sized study and a light-filled sitting room with pendant lights.
The home’s higher than average ceilings and spacious rooms add to its sense of space.
While the property was built almost four decades ago, it has a modern layout with an open-plan combined kitchen, family and meals area at the rear.

The second floor of the double-brick property is a suspended concrete slab and provides extra insulation.
The timber kitchen is fitted with granite benchtops, double ovens and a walk-in pantry for extra storage.
The layout flows outdoors to a covered terrace overlooking the glass fenced inground swimming pool and spa. It is surrounded by sandstone retaining walls and flowering gardens.
This is an ideal spot for entertaining as the mature landscaping adds plenty of privacy. A gazebo offers another spot to relax and take in the sanctuary-like grounds.
In total, there are five bedrooms, all of which are on the second floor. The master wing features a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and separate access to a balcony which wraps around the rear of the upper level.

The much loved home’s European influence is best seen in the bathrooms which have imported French porcelain fittings, gold-plated taps and custom timber vanities with imported marble tops.
A surprise inclusion on the second floor is a games room which has space for a billiard table.
The home has fully-ducted airconditioning and a triple lockup garage with potential to add a mezzanine level.
The house is a five-minute drive to Castle Towers and the future train station.
