Back in the olden days, home cellars were often dank dark places where creepy crawlies lurked.
But you won’t find any dusty cobweb-coated bottles of wine in the cellar at 32 Spring St, Beecroft.
The purpose-built storage space has the capacity for up to 2000 bottles of wine. The floor is tiled and custom wine racks line the walls. It is gleaming and spotless. No chance of bumping your head or bumping into a redback spider.
The cellar might be a talking point in this beautiful home, but it has so much more to offer a growing family, according to Kevin Dearlove from Stone Real Estate — Beecroft.
“It would appeal to the upsizing family that really want to enjoy a great lifestyle at home,” Mr Dearlove said.
The property is part of a boutique estate, The Croft, which is comprised of 15 homes built in the late 1980s.
The five-bedroom three-bathroom house is named Davenport. Its design was inspired by the Georgian style of architecture popular in England and the British colonies throughout the 1800s.
Distinguishing features of the style include a symmetrical facade and formal classical details.
The house sits on a park-like 1794sqm parcel that also contains extensive gardens, a heated saltwater pool and spa and a championship tennis court.
Tennis buffs will appreciate the significance of the tennis court’s north south orientation, which means glare will never be an issue.
Built over three levels, the house has a number of discrete areas such as a music room, study and media room.
A charming outdoor dining zone has blinds that can be lowered in inclement weather for year-round entertaining.
Immaculately maintained, the property has undergone recent updates in the kitchen and laundry.
The established landscaped gardens were designed around the house so every room has a green leafy outlook.
Mr Dearlove said seeing was believing for a property of such a high calibre.
“A huge amount of thought went into every aspect of the design,” he said. “It is a very personal home and a lot of love has been poured into it.”
The private road through The Croft is maintained by the owners who pay an annual maintenance fee of about $600.
The property is for private treaty sale with a price guide of $3 million.
