Superbly crafted home of stone and iron with a slate tile roof.
Original Architecture by Ian Hooke this superb residence which nurtures the owners in a quiet reflective haven surrounded by garden. Entering through the rose garden through wrought iron gates to the alcove entry, the home merges into the garden and courtyard making them usable living spaces as well. Full height steel and glass doors and windows send dappled light through the living rooms. The master suite is on its own, a world away from the rigors of modern living with beautifully fitted walk in robe and dressing room and an ensuite with every luxury available. It has its own living area and private drinks cabinet. A private study is on this level adjacent to the wide circular staircase that transports you effortlessly to the living room which is the heart of the house.
On entering the residence through solid doors with a wrought iron gate there is a pervading sense of calm and composure experienced, a guest room lies to the east and the garage cellar and casual entry to the west. You move through effortlessly to the full double height living area with enormous fire and hearth, this has feelings of Marshall Clifton about it with its beamed ceiling. Facing the eastern courtyard it is also the perfect day room but a wonderful space for the family to gather in the evening.
Softly settled into the urban landscape, this most private of family homes is ideal for a couple or small family. On one of the highest points of The Grove on 744 sqm of land and 50 metres from the river walk that trails down to Freshwater Bay and along to the beach and Yacht Club.
A high level of comfort and amenity is yours for the taking.
