Just listed with Garry Quan of Charlotte Peterswald For Property with price expectations of more than $1.65 million, this contemporary spread sits on a whopping 7600sqm block high atop Mount Nelson and has an architect-designed layout that consists of three wings for independent family living.
Great walls of glass capture the postcard vista, but to combat the Apple Isle’s chilly winters all the windows are double-glazed and a wood heater warms up the lounge room.
Another place to stay warm is the 25m solar-heated lap pool which sits at the centre of the floor plan, along with a hot tub.
Located in an enclosed courtyard, the pool is covered from the elements and can be accessed via stacker doors from the living and kitchen area or from the rumpus room.
Built for entertaining, the grand kitchen has black marble bench tops, an island breakfast bar with integrated sink and dishwasher plus easy access to the casual dining area or dining terrace by the pool.
Each of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes while the main has a walk-in dressing room and spa ensuite.
Other bonus features of the home include a big laundry with loads of storage space and direct outdoor access, a ducted vacuum system, airconditioning, secure parking for four cars, an under house storage facility, low-maintenance and landscaped gardens plus there is so much room on the block that there is potential for a development of three additional dwellings (STCA) at the rear of the property without compromising the main house views.
