There’s unique, then there’s this architect designed home on almost three acres of abundant and beautifully landscaped gardens by Brett Huxtable. Homes like this are envied, and every so often, present to market.

The resort feel is evident from entry, with two mature palms framing the front door and foyer. As are the upgrades to the entire house, thanks to an extensive renovation completed last year. High ceilings, multiple entertaining spaces, open fireplace — this home is the result of meticulous design and clever use of the floorplan. No expense has been spared in the kitchen with the installation of ILVE and Miele appliances, Carrara marble benchtops, integrated dishwasher, and designer light fittings. American oak and sandstone floorings adds warmth and ambience via the neutral colour palette.

Dual formal living and dining areas are perfect for family dinners or dinner parties alike, with double sliding doors that open onto the terrace for further inside/outside entertaining. A rumpus room with full bar and cabinetry to house bar and wine fridges, while a bathroom, home office, and spacious laundry completes the ground level.

Upstairs you will find the four bedrooms located in the main house. The three kids’ rooms all have built-in-robes and are serviced by a central bathroom with bath. Take a stroll across the internal boardwalk to the north-facing master wing where you find the main bedroom, walk-in-robe, and ensuite with double vanity.

The private guest house is located on the grounds and is fully self-contained — perfect for the millennial adult child still at home, weekend guests, or an Airbnb.


It’s not often a property comes with a barn. It’s then not often the barn looks like this. With a fully built-in kitchen, entertaining and dining areas, workshop, bathroom, and mezzanine level home office — this is one barn that’s less farm, more fun.
