Distinctive, stylish, elegant and tranquil only start to describe this residence in Bellingen.
Perfectly positioned with magnificent sweeping views over the Bellinger Valley to the Great Dividing Range this strikingly beautiful home is something that most tree-changers just dream of.
Architecturally designed to create a lifestyle that provides space, comfort and convenience, this residence is ideally situated in Bellingen, a picturesque country town renowned for its artistic and musical traditions.
A circular driveway leads to an imposing entrance with a large porte-cochere and Tuscan columns. Entering through magnificent double doors one is immediately captivated by the spaciousness and splendour of the wide travertine tiled entry hall.
To the right of the hall is a wall of framed windows through which you view an enchanting sheltered courtyard with wall fountain, pond and greenery.
On the left of the hall is a spacious fully carpeted master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, twin basins set in granite and a walk-in dressing room.
Next door to the master bedroom is a media room that could be used as another bedroom.
At the end of the hall you descend two steps to a huge carpeted lounge room with a 5 metre ceiling. This stunning room is endowed with a large ornate stone fireplace with gas heating, four sets of French doors that allow in plenty of light, attractive wall mouldings, two crystal chandeliers and two ceiling fans.
Adjoining the lounge is a large French provincial style dining room and kitchen equipped with quality European appliances, a ceaserstone island counter and bench top. This very appealing room also has an abundance of custom-made drawers and glass display cabinets.
A corridor on the right of the hall leads to a wonderfully elegant powder room with a marble hand basin, granite topped vanity and a crystal chandelier. Past that is a delightful study designed with an alcove fitted with built-in custom-made cupboards and bookcases. At the end of the corridor is a well-appointed laundry and access to the double garage.
An exceptionally wide carpeted staircase leads down to two guest bedrooms with French doors that each open up to a captivating shaded colonnade. Also on the lower level is a stunning travertine tiled bathroom with a gorgeous freestanding bath and a huge glass shower.
Next to the bathroom is a large room with an adjoining smaller room that may be used as a wine cellar or storage area. With a French door leading on to the colonnade this room can be used as a bedroom or as a recreation room.
Meticulous attention to detail has resulted in the creation of an ambience that delights the senses. But not only is this home elegant and luxurious, it is also highly functional. It is perfect for those who love to entertain, whether indoors or outdoors on the spacious deck and belvedere.
The surrounding beautiful garden complements the house perfectly.
And when you consider the fact that it is just a pleasant 30 minute drive up the scenic Waterfall Way to Dorrigo, 25 minutes to Coffs Harbour and the airport and about 15 minutes to golden beaches, this home is heaven on earth.
