An original and distinctive design by architect Ian Krause this spectacular property meets their design brief 'to create the right building at the right moment as an expression of a very complex reality'. Whilst there is no doubt the planning required for this 844sqm house would be complex there is also an unexpected simplicity and ease of flow regardless of the grand dimensions and collective sumptuousness of the interior finish. Unobstructed, magnificent views of the ever-changing landscape below are evident from almost every room in the house yet are never more apparent from the moment you enter into the elaborate and distinctive foyer. This formal area leads in one direction past a large office through to the sitting room and open plan living area with an adjacent formal dining room. A faultlessly designed kitchen literally drinks in the compelling views, allows a comfortable transition to both indoors and outdoors and is beautifully appointed with the finest appliances, a butlers-pantry and then finished with sleek granite surfaces. An impressive entertainment wing of unreserved dimensions invites use as an opulent billiards room, media suite or a well separated teenage retreat and comes with its own bar and kitchenette. Thoughtful design has placed the luxurious main suite on this first level and one can only imagine the sensory delight of waking to those glorious views that unfold beyond the sliding doors and expansive balcony. Take the double staircase to the lower level where the four remaining spacious bedrooms, serviced by three bathrooms, are located. A purpose built wine cellar will excite those who prefer to store their collection in the perfect environment. This home boasts two double garages, each allows internal access and the second garage on the lower level offers additional storage space for a vehicle, recreational toys or is simply the perfect spot for a gym. Explore the multitude of opportunities by opting to combine the adjacent 3,010sqm site below at 10 Signal Hill Road (RV $462,000).
