There are only four homes in exclusive Lindsay Ave, right on the ‘point’ of Darling Point.
On an 898 sqm block, this five-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence, by the architect Michael Dysart, is very special.
For starters, the 10-car garage is rare.
But best of all for its media-shy owners, and the corporate types from around the world that it’s already appealing to, the property is very private.
The minute you close the gate, you shut-out the world behind you and enter a resort-like lush tropical garden before arriving at a double-height, wide solid zinc door.

The tropical treat continues inside, where the ceiling height is 3.5m at least, and thanks to the northern light and skylights, more plants.
The home has a distinct Japanese feel, with Dysart modelling the design on Kyoto’s imperial palace.
It’s built around a two-storey atrium. There are elegant formal rooms, just as you may expect in a palace. But thankfully, also more casual areas, such as a living room with a wood fireplace and marble wall feature.
All opens to the great outdoors: topiary-lined lawns and a heated pool with harbour and Bridge views.
The kitchen, too, has a Japanese flavour with everything concealed.
The home office is a perfect working space, overlooking the garden and pool and opening to a courtyard.
The fifth bedroom, or guest suite, has an ensuite and its own entrance.
The master bedroom has a walk-through wardrobe and an ensuite with a freestanding bath, double dressing rooms, a toilet room and an all-glass shower cantilevered above the garden that captures pool, garden and harbour views.
All bedrooms have an ensuite, with three of them having good-sized balconies with harbour views.
A lift whisks the residents between all three levels. The lower level has a gym, media room, bathroom, second kitchen a storage room, access to the 10 car garage and separate entrance.
The agent, Alison Coopes of Agency by Alison Coopes, said: “This home has no equal in the Sydney market in terms of its architecture, sitting in an elevated private location.”
Expressions of interest close at 1pm on April 11.
