The garage of this opulent waterfront property in Hunters Hill, which has just hit the market, is as big as an apartment and comes with its own chandelier and elevator.
It is part of a magnificent estate set on the Lane Cove River, launched as an Expressions of Interest campaign through Darren Curtis from Ken Jacobs, Christie’s International Real Estate.
The 1002 sqm property, located in Sea Street, has countless features including a vast alfresco terrace, inground pool and sauna plus private jetty and mooring.
While a European vacation may be off the cards at the moment due to travel restrictions, the lucky new owner is likely to feel like they are on a permanent Tuscan holiday.
The sprawling five bedroom home has a distinctive Italian style with an enclosed courtyard, terracotta tiled roof, arched windows and wrought iron detailing.
Its palatial interior features coffered ceilings, panelled walls, ornate marble fireplaces and more chandeliers.
Mr Curtis said the enquiry level has been very solid given the current market with lots of positive feedback.
The property’s easy commute to the city CBD has attracted enquiries from high-end buyers from the Eastern Suburbs and Mosman.
“It is a north-facing Sydney waterfront with a boating facility; a rare item in itself,” Mr Curtis said.
“Added to this, the build quality and finishes are genuinely superb being full brick and of a very high quality. It also offers a fully self-contained guest apartment that could also be used as a home office or the like.”
There is lift access to every level of the lavish house, which has multiple living zones to capture its waterfront outlook.
The master retreat is located on the upper level of the home with a sitting area, walk-through wardrobe, marble ensuite and rear balcony access.
Downstairs is a provincial style kitchen which features an amazing black chandelier, stainless steel cooker with gas stove top and butler’s pantry.
Fully retractable glass sliders open up to the home’s stunning entertainment area overlooking its landscaped gardens, pool and harbourside views. Even its sauna has a waterview.
No price guide for the property has been released.
According to CoreLogic RP Data, the exclusive cul-de-sac is tightly held with the last sale recorded in March 2014 with 3 Sea Street selling for a street record of $5.6m.
