Taking centre stage in a leafy enclave of coveted Ascot, this refined estate will leave you breathless with its sheer elegance, vast space and horizon views. A landmark residence, unparalleled in grace, style and awash with history, there is 1,189m2 of private, lush landscaped surrounds within a prime exclusive location.
Originally built in the 1890’s and expertly renovated and remastered in the years since, this historic residence features a complementary blend of traditional opulence and modern updates, producing an offering of tremendous pedigree. Exceptional street appeal sets a refined scene, dual electric gates leading to a semi-circular driveway where exceptional landscaping and an artisan crafted wrought-iron entrance stands at the ready to welcome you into the home.
A grand entrance awaits, with sweeping timber stairs guiding your eye to take in the chandelier lighting and decorative high ceiling, just one of many retained ornate details featured throughout the home. Beyond beautiful sliding glass doors, two distinct entertaining zones sit opposite each other, together creating a beautiful setting for entertaining and relaxation with the grandeur of a bygone era. On one side, a massive dining room, set with fireplace, the continuation of exquisite plasterwork and picture rails whilst opposite a massive lounge room matches in sophisticated finesse. Three sun kissed rooms stretch from this zone, currently utilised as a home office, child’s playroom and sitting room.
The deluxe kitchen and eat-in meals area offers brilliant cohesion between character and modern expectations with a zone catering to the highest of requirements. An abundance of traditional cabinetry is set with expansive marble benches and Gaggenau appliances with brilliant indoor/outdoor flow and natural light. Seamless transition guides you to a wrap-around verandah, shutters and skylights present for all-weather entertaining, all with a Portside Wharf and horizon outlook! Enjoy countless hours alfresco of alfresco enjoyment whilst overlooking the manicured yard and in-ground salt water pool below.
Five spacious bedrooms are positioned throughout the home, all including built-in storage with the third level attic bedroom providing a brilliant teenage retreat with bathroom included. The master bedroom features a private sitting room alongside an exceptional ensuite with floor to ceiling tiling and lush landscaped outlook providing day-spa relaxation. A total of five bathrooms service the residence.
Downstairs, a massive theatre and billiards room with adjacent built-in wet-bar or second kitchen ensures spectacular entertaining provisions. With an adjacent bedroom and superb bathroom facilities, there is also tremendous scope for dual living if required. Also positioned on this level you’ll find a massive laundry, gym/studio, utilities room, storage room and double lock-up garage with workshop.
Painstakingly rejuvenated to pay the utmost respect to character features, this is a superb haven of quality and distinction.
