The formal lounge and dining rooms each provide Juliet balconies overlooking lush gardens, superbly styled with broad cornicing and architraves, beautiful chandeliers and soothing wall sconces, and cosied by a gas log fire to the lounge. The cinema room provides endless entertainment with a full cinema experience, including automated screen, projector and surround sound. The kitchen/meals is lavish, lined with Quarella terrazzo flooring, providing abundant space for large gatherings, extending to the Madras Black limestone paved outdoor lounge beside the pool. Fully-appointed with Miele appliances including induction cooktop, the kitchen provides outstanding drawer storage and a large walk-in pantry, with long Galaxy Black granite benchtops. Enjoying exceptional amenity, the ground floor is completed with powder room, large laundry including ironing centre and drying cupboard, spacious home office or guest bedroom, and an enormous basement wine cellar or multi-function room (gym/rumpus).
