A Balinese inspired property at Castle Hill with its own swim up bar and thatched cabana has sold for $2.11m.
The luxurious four bedroom residence at 5 Hunter Place is entered through a tropical style gateway surrounded by palm trees.
Each step along a stone path way takes visitors further away from normal suburbia and into an idyllic and private haven.
“It really feels just like a resort with stainless steel bar stools in the pool so you can sit there and sip champagne,” said agent David Choy from McGrath Castle Hill.
“It is incredibly private with beautiful gardens and has been designed with night lighting.”
The 1018 sqm property, positioned in a cul-de-sac within the Ulundri Drive Estate, was inspected by around 80 groups during its marketing campaign. It was purchased by a family looking to upgrade within The Hills.
“It just wowed the buyers with its private landscaped garden and two Buddha statues,” Mr Choy said.
According to CoreLogic RP Data, it last sold for $1.95m two years ago, showing lifestyle properties in the area are holding value.
The home has a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living connected by cedar framed windows and bi-fold doors.
The light-filled interior features a wood burning fireplace, cathedral style ceilings and polished timber flooring.
Off the kitchen and lounge areas, on the ground floor, is a courtyard with stone feature wall and cascading water running into a pond full of goldfish.
Positioned outside is a Balinese hut, which was imported in pieces and constructed on-site. Large Indian marble tiles lead down to the gas heated swimming pool.
Finishing off the entertaining space is an outdoor kitchen and barbecue area. The property also has a large level lawn.
There are four bedrooms with built-in wardrobes including a lower level teen retreat.
Other features include a security system, intercom, airconditioning and plantation shutters.
The highest residential sale in Castle Hill this year was achieved by 3 Lomond Place which sold for $3.8m in June.
