Incredibly private and serene, this Kenthurst property is the ultimate escape for a family wanting to be close to the city but enjoy the space that comes with semirural living.
Electronic gates slide back to reveal a magnificent parklike 2ha estate leading up to a stunning contemporary style homestead.
The property’s sweeping driveway passes picturesque landscaped gardens with manicured hedging and a fountain featuring a silver marlin sculpture as its centre piece.
Located at 8a Orana Rd Kenthurst, the acreage may be a 20 minute drive to Castle Towers and upcoming train line, but feels far from suburbia.
Built to be a dream home by its current owners, it fulfills the brief effortlessly with luxurious lifestyle features such as a tiered theatre room with seating and a private bar in the games room. The latter has a striking silver feature wall plus a wood burning fireplace and built-in fish tank.
Agent Sandy Ward from Ray White Dural has just listed the estate with a price guide of offers above $4m.
The home’s glamorous entry opens up to an elegant interior with a modern chandelier and even an indoor water feature. The floor plan includes a formal dining room, upstairs retreat or playroom and lounge/music area.
In the kitchen, the cabinets and stone bench tops cleverly extend from inside to outdoors separated by sliding doors. There is also a large walk-in pantry and Miele appliances including induction cook top, double ovens and a coffee machine.
The sublime outdoor entertainment terrace overlooks the rear of the property. The beautiful mountain views can also be enjoyed from the infinity swimming pool and spa.
“I would have to say the kitchen and family room are my favourite areas because they just flow and everybody can be in the kitchen and then just walk out to the pool – it has been really well designed,” Ms Ward said.
The main homestead has five bedrooms – three of which have their own ensuite.
The master retreat opens up to a private terrace and has a marble bathroom and dressing room.
Located opposite the almost complete tennis court is a self-contained one bedroom guesthouse. There is also potential to add a second granny flat for family members as the home also has side road access.
“They have prepared a pad in the bottom paddock that can’t be seen from the house and it just a great opportunity to add a second dwelling there for family,” Ms Ward said.
