Backing directly on to the fabulous Mount Ainslie nature reserve, the owners chose this specific block to be the site of their dream home. Detailed consultation with their architect, Geoff Lovie, saw the creation of this superb, cutting edge home, which must be considered one of the finest in the Inner North. The bushland location sees kangaroos gather at the back fence at twilight and all manner of birdlife visiting during the day. It's hard to believe this home is literally on the fringe of the city - so very close to the heartbeat of Braddon. Built in 2009, with no compromise on quality, the home has double glazing throughout and the first floor sits on a suspended slab allowing for greater energy efficiency and stunning polished concrete floors in the living area. The list of features are too long for an ad, so an inspection is essential to fully appreciate the luxury and functionality of this gorgeous property.
The 340m2 of living includes four large bedrooms - all with walk-in robes - the huge main bedroom with ensuite overlooking the reserve and the 15m long pool. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with Meile appliances, featuring an integrated Leibherr double fridge/freezer as well as a fabulous butler's pantry to hide away your appliances and dirty dishes. All of the screen doors are 'Crimsafe' allowing for wonderful cross ventilation in summer. The living space is expansive and flows from the dining room end, leading to an elevated terrace, through the kitchen with two island benches, to the living room at the other end that goes out to a 'garden room'. This indoor/outdoor room can be enclosed and even heated. It overlooks the gorgeous waterfall edged pool that can also be heated.
There are four bathrooms in all and a large formal lounge room which the owners have set up as a library and reading room. There is a separate rumpus room downstairs, wine cellar and loads of storage. The double garage has internal access and automatic door, with two 23,000L water tanks built under the house. The water from the tanks service the beautifully established gardens.
Whether you prefer swimming laps or lazing around the pool in summer, simply entertaining friends and family all year round or you like bush walking and mountain biking amongst nature, there is something for everyone. An enviable existence awaits.
