“A historic Sydney home of tomorrow” – Alison Coopes

A private stone walled driveway. A position high above it all, with expansive views across the CBD, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House to the Heads that can never be built out. Magnificent courtyards, a 13m saltwater pool, in an enclave of Sydney’s most historic and distinguished homes. This 4-5 bedroom modern residence on 923sqms is a special home.

The house, perfectly north-east facing and strikingly clad in copper and glass, is also ideally designed for living with its separate wings and huge heart – a double lounge, dining room and commercial kitchen overlooking the Harbour and glass-lined conservatory.

Retractable glass doors extend the lounge and dining spaces outdoors, where a vast stone-paved courtyard spreads out to its large entertaining space endpoint, each metre offering a new and uninterrupted Harbour view. A marble Jetmaster & wood fireplace provides the centrepiece for indoor entertaining in cooler months. A full-size, fully equipped separate entertaining kitchen services these rooms.

The main kitchen was specially designed for large dinner parties, with commercial grade appliances and a Calcutta marble island able to plate twelve dishes at once.

Enhancing the Master’s allure is its huge picture window. Its Harbour view is panoramic. The Master opens to its own balcony and includes a fully-fitted dressing room and marble ensuite with bidet. Two further generous bedrooms, both with soaring ceilings and marble ensuites complete the bedroom wing.

The private guest wing includes a walk-through wardrobe, a dressing room and a large marble ensuite.

The TV room, also with a Jetmaster, extends to the library or home office. Both rooms overlook a peaceful, private courtyard shaded by an ancient Bunya Pine and a giant Turpentine tree.

The games room (or 5th bedroom), with sauna and ensuite, overlooks, and opens to, the pool.

There is a four-car garage with gym area and a storage room.

There is an air-conditioned wine cellar for 6000 bottles. Solar heating, a/c and satellite.
