AFTER 27 happy years, the original owners of this Kenthurst acreage are set to downsize — but have left a unique reminder of their time spent at the property.
The ceiling above their rustic ‘Old English pub’ on the lower ground floor of the property is decorated in corks taken from bottles enjoyed over the years.
With its exposed beams, wine barrels and handcrafted walnut Edwardian English lobby bar — purchased at an antique auction — it almost feels like you are sitting in an old-fashion inn on a cobbled street.
It is just one of the many surprises on offer at this charming country style home located at 7 Parkcrest Place — just a 20 minute drive from the Rouse Hill Town Centre.
Kate Lumby from Lumby Hampson Real Estate, who has just listed the property for sale, described it as a ‘great lifestyle offering’.
The property, which is set on just over a manageable hectare, backs onto bushland with tranquil views at every angle.
Importantly there are plenty of spots to enjoy the peaceful and incredibly private vista.
This includes while swimming laps in the indoor heated pool, also located on the ground floor of the home. It is a fantastic space that can be used all year round with the wall-to-ceiling windows capturing the scenic outlook. Completing the lifestyle features of the property is a billiard room and separate gymnasium.
The home offers elegant formal dining and lounge rooms as well as casual living areas. Raked ceilings add to the sense of space while exposed brickwork and slate give the home a semirural feel.
Adjoining the family room is the country style kitchen with corner pantry, stainless steel appliances, skylights and a combustion fireplace.
It leads out to what is an vast outdoor sandstone entertainment area with vaulted ceilings and uninterrupted views over the acreage.
This impressive terrace, which also has a barbecue area, can easily accommodate 100 guests. It is fitted with overhead fans and lights ensuring it is a versatile space.
In total, the home has four large bedrooms all with built-in wardrobes. The oversized master retreat has a walk-in closet and its own ensuite with twin vanities and an elevated spa bath.
