'Karinya' - a peaceful and private lifestyle with lavish indulgence on 5 acres (approx.)Breathtaking in every regard, this opulent five-bedroom mansion, 'Karinya', is set upon approx. five acres of manicured parklands, providing a private and secure oasis of transcendent beauty, less than half an hour from Melbourne's CBD. A sprawling 120-square sanctuary, the home offers versatility and modern functionality in the most extravagant manner, catering to both luxurious day-to-day living and lavish celebrations for immense crowds. The manicured gardens are a joy for kids to run, play and hide, with themed pockets including a swimming pool haven with barbecue dining, English gardens, a picturesque lake, and an orchard full of peaches, pears, apples and figs.
Architecturally designed and custom built in exacting detail, the home encircles a soaring atrium garden which delivers peaceful, leafy views to nearly every room, and is encompassed by alfresco entertaining patios and private balconies to indulge indoor-outdoor entertaining. The overly-generous dimensions are smothered in sumptuous marble and granite surfaces, enriched by a striking combination of natural glass, timber and stone finishes, including purpose-built European Beech joinery throughout. Under towering coffered ceilings, the home captures abundant natural light and verdant garden views through enormous panoramic windows, oozing a calm and secure ambience.
Introduced by a spectacular marble entry foyer, the expansive floorplan boasts six independently-zoned living areas for privacy among family and friends, providing multi-functional flexibility for additional bedrooms or living spaces. A private dining room for family or business gatherings, a formal lounge wired for home cinema, and a billiards room with a stunning wet-bar, extending into an entertaining zone including spa, sauna, gymnasium and teppanyaki kitchen with wood-fired oven. Day-to-day living is enjoyed aside a cosy marble-encased open fireplace, including a meals area with fernery vistas, and the most lavishly spacious granite-topped kitchen, fully-appointed with extensive Miele and Gaggenau appliances and an under-house cellar. Upstairs, a teen's retreat stretches onto a large alfresco terrace, and an attic-style studio with kitchenette above the four-car garage indulges absolute privacy or independent living. Externally, a utility building provides additional car accommodation and workshop space, storage, or the opportunity to convert it into a guest house (possibly subject to council approval).
