RIVERFRONT CONTEMPORARY WITH TENNIS COURT- 3535M2An elevated 3535m2 of private grounds with an impressive 45m of South-facing riverfrontage forms the perfect base for this expansive residence which combines a pool, tennis court and a striking two-level home that is a bold statement in contemporary grandeur. Behind a classic facade, sweeping curves and vibrant tones bring lively interest to the high concept interior, delivering a strong design aesthetic while also maintaining a focus on the dynamic river views.
The open plan design by award-winning architect Denis Mullins, lends itself to frequent entertaining with the layout able to effortlessly incorporate both the outdoor terrace (complete with in-built barbecue), a games/media room and an enviable bar replete with industrial washers and fridges. The nearby kitchen has been custom designed for serious culinary pursuits with a range of quality appliances all integrated into banks of cabinetry and within the sprawling island bench. The lower level brings further lifestyle opportunity, with the option to convert part of the five car garage into a secondary entertainment zone or even a fully self-contained guest suite.
Outside meanwhile, the grounds provide room for the flood lit, North-South facing tennis court, the pool, the covered, elevated gazebo (ideal for watching the game) and even a fire pit for more casual affairs. These amenities are all surrounded by stunning, sub-tropical gardens dotted with water features and manicured lawns which have been set against the backdrop of the ever-flowing river. When combined, these elements all work together to provide incredible views from most vantage points within in the house. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the master bedroom which enjoys stunning vistas from both the bedroom and the expansive ensuite with its large corner spa. Occupying its own private wing, the suite is separated from the other bedrooms by a private staircase and a large void which also works to create an inspiring double story ceiling over the ground level foyer. The second wing meanwhile, (which contains three bedrooms and the family bathroom) has a generously-proportioned landing with a gallery feature integrated to display sculpture and other art. There is also a study, a powder room, a cellar and ample storage.
Positioned at the end of a private cul-de-sac just 9km from the CBD, this grand, executive property makes no apologies for its statement-making panache, delivering bold tenacity and impressive family-friendly design in equal measure.
