This home unites indoor and outdoor spaces, offers an abundance of areas for entertaining, and provides an idyllic family-friendly retreat. Every effort was taken in the design and construction of this home to ensure it’s a magnificent masterpiece where contemporary sensibilities combine with a sense of warmth, creating a house that’s both inviting and awe-inspiring.
As you approach this Sydney home, you’ll immediately notice the immaculately maintained garden, which adds a sense of established sophistication and elegance to the front entrance, and shrouds it with a feeling of privacy and escape. Well-maintained shrubberies, English-style gardens and columns flanking the double front doors combine with more modern exterior architecture and clean lines at 4 Kolgoa Road.
These double doors bring you into the soaring multi-level foyer, which creates a stunning presence and sets the tone for the rest of this exquisite property.
Open-Concept Living at Its Best
This north-facing home is perhaps one of the finest examples of open-concept living you’ll ever discover, and it makes use of the abundance of sunlight that comes pouring in from nearly every angle.
As you walk into the expansive open-concept kitchen and living areas, you’re able to enjoy clear sight lines straight to the outdoor areas, which include stunning wrap-around gardens designed by Annie Wilkes, one of the most revered landscape architects in Australia.
The interior walls of this home seem to melt away at a moment’s notice, effortlessly bringing together the equally amazing indoors and outdoors. Light color palettes and a vast, functional floor plan create a space that feels modern, but also instantly home-like.
Blurring Separation of Indoor and Outdoor
Level gardens serve to frame one of the home’s primary focal points, the gas-heated, glass balustrade salt water pool, also appointed with a convenient outdoor shower. You can easily envision this becoming a family gathering place, a great area to entertain or the perfect place to relax and enjoy peaceful contemplation.
As you look past the gourmet kitchen and toward the saltwater pool you’ll also notice lush greenery that creates private, living walls around the gardens and encloses you in a luxurious retreat.
In addition to the primary living and entertaining areas, this home also offers a number of other formal and informal living spaces, each of which is encircled with wraparound terraces, continuing the theme of combined indoor/outdoor living.
The gourmet kitchen becomes the heart of the home, with Minimalist European styling, state-of-the-art appliances and functionality, and ample seating and food preparation areas. It’s a kitchen that’s designed to not only feel sleek, contemporary and stylistically distinctive but also one that’s meant to be lived in and used daily.
The massive, airy gourmet kitchen is equipped with a top-of-the-line Gaggenau gas/electric combination-set cooktop, two ovens, Zip chilled and boiling water, a twin integrated fridge and freezer, a wine cooler, plentiful storage and a spacious walk-in pantry. Oversized statement-making pendant lights illuminate the dark stone countertop of the large kitchen island, and create a beautiful contrast with the chic white cabinets. Twinkling recessed lighting illuminates the large open-concept space, allowing the ceilings to maintain a feeling of soaring height and openness.
This home includes two cozy, warm gas fireplaces, which create an inviting ambiance; both of which are flanked by custom, built-in bookshelves.
As you make your way down the wide hallways, the sense of open living and airiness continue, and while much of the design concept of this home is centered on European and modern style, there are features such as the custom plantation shutters that also integrate elements of traditionalism, for a sense of balance.
Each of the materials used in the construction of this home have been painstakingly selected to maximize a sense of both attractiveness and functionality, including the heated limestone floors and the limestone powder room.
The professional-quality in-home theater features state-of-the-art technology, a built-in screen and cinema-level sound capabilities, adding just one more impeccable entertaining space in this outstanding home.
This home includes 5 primary bedrooms, each of which is bright and sunny and also includes an en suite bathroom appointed with decadent limestone and a light, airy color palette similar to what’s found throughout the rest of this premier Sydney property. There’s an additional sixth room, which can be used as another bedroom, a playroom or a study/office area, offering flexibility and versatility, and all of these rooms include amply-sized built-in closets.
The sumptuous master wing includes its own private balcony, which is north facing and delivers prime use of the natural sunlight that comes flooding into this exquisite suite. It’s easy to envision yourself stepping onto this balcony as you drink in views of the elegant gardens, the natural light, and begin to prepare for your day.
This Sydney home is not only designed to be a relaxing and decadent family home, but there’s also a sense of peace and security thanks to the advanced security system and double garage with level internal entry.
