High in the hills of the Coffs Harbour hinterland and positioned at the back of 4.24 hectares of sloping acreage, surrounded by massive trees backing onto the Orara East State Forest, is this masterpiece of concrete, rendered brick and glass rising from the verdant landscape.
Catch first light and 180 degree views of Coffs' magnificent coastline from any one of the three east facing balconies finished with glass balustrades.
Architecturally designed and built by well known builder, Frank Maione, and completed in June 2003, this magnificent 2 storey + basement residence sits on a suspended concrete block, and has all the 'construction' extras you would expect in a property of this calibre - all wiring is hidden in false ceilings, under staircase storage, Italian and Spanish tiles, Quantum hot water pump in the basement ... the list goes on.
Access is through electronic security gates, up to a circular driveway and into a 3 vehicle security garage with horsetail brush lining the doors. The landscaped gardens fit the property like a glove, with the gardens closer to the residence sporting a formal English theme with box hedges and garden features, and the outer grounds being more casual and planted with herbs, native grasses, shrubs and trees, a pizza oven and a rose circle.
Park the car and walk up the tiled steps through the double Rosewood front doors featuring a traditional Mediterannean door knocker and enter into a light and airy tiled reception area. To the left is a wide, tiled staircase and to the right a spacious, open plan informal lounge, dining and kitchen. This area opens out through sliding doors to the east to a balcony spanning the width of the front of the house.
The views through the 2-storey floor to ceiling windows of the coastline to the north and Solitary Islands and the South Pacific to the east are breathtaking!
The well planned galley style kitchen features Beaumonde 'suede-finish' timber cabinetry, a fabulous full slab granite bench top and Bosch appliances including a refrigerator and icemaker. With a spacious walk-in pantry and easy-care european floor tiles, you have an extremely functional kitchen! The formal dining and lounge room are lavishly carpeted and drenched with natural light from the floor to ceiling glass windows, and many a dinner is to be had here with the lights of the Coffs Coast twinkling through. Some windows throughout the house are fitted with electronic blinds.
The downstairs bathroom, situated between the guest bedroom and the external access door to the laundry with ceiling to floor cupboards, is an easy care bathroom with floor to ceiling tiles and a frameless glass extra large shower recess and toilet. The guest bedroom on this level features plush carpet and its own, private wrap around balcony with views of the gardens and the coastline.
At the top of the stairs and to the southern side of the house is the huge master bedroom, again with plush carpets, floor to ceiling wardrobes and its own private balcony. The en suite is larger than an average bathroom with a generous size bath, frameless glass double shower recess, floor to ceiling tiles and a large double vanity topped off with a single piece of granite.
Next to the master bedroom is another smaller bedroom which is currently being used as a study. It has views to die for, and will inspire anyone working from this room. There are two further bedrooms on this level, separated by another huge bathroom with frameless shower, floor to ceiling Italian tiles. Both these bedrooms feature a Beaumonde built-in wardrobe with slide-out shelving for either a TV or portable computer and plush carpets, with one bedroom having its own private, wrap around balcony.
There is a 90,000 litre underground water tank, a rainwater filtration unit for drinking, cooking and showering, and bore water for the gardens and toilet flushing, so water supply is always plentiful.
A property where style and location live in harmony!
