This bold unique masterpiece is the dream child of Lawrence Sumich and Christian Anderson Architects.
A masterful build with un-compromised attention to detail at every level. Positioned on the Motu Grande waterway this idyllic location has everything to offer and a whole lot more.
Featuring five double bedrooms, media room, three luxurious bathrooms, (master with ensuite) large double internal access garage, four toilets, hallway to "internal jetty", varnished exotic timber floors, designer kitchen.
The main "living" room area is extensive, beautifully created and highly functional. Purposefully designed for either peaceful relaxation or lavish entertaining, this room is enclosed by eight glass sliding doors (2.8m w X 3m h) which open fully on either side allowing flow from the secluded private courtyard through to the lawn overlooking the waterway.
Featuring a designer kitchen with large gas hob, double oven, built in fridge, beer and second fridge, soft close drawers throughout and generous additional storage. Twin sinks, waste masters and filtered water supply.
The bedrooms are all substantial doubles in size, internal wardrobes and intelligent lighting panels. The master has it's own ensuite and thoughtfully designed walk in dressing room with extensive views of the waterway from it's elevated position on the westerly end of the building.
Heating comes from a diesel boiler which is connected into the Management System. Each room is on a separate thermostat and individually programmed to the required temperature and time it will run. The diesel boiler is also wired into the system so it can be controlled remotely by phone.
Electrical: This is controlled by a 'Lutron' system and can be programmed to owner requirements, an example is that the lights in the upstairs hall will automatically come on at night when anyone accesses the area but will only come on at 40% intensity. The light in bathrooms and ensuite can be programmed to only come on at 40% intensity at night.
The house can be programmed so when it is closed up you only need to push one button and the house can be put into vacant mode and it will automatically turn lights on and off and play music to give impression someone is occupying it.
What currently functions as a 5th bedroom is situated alongside the entertainment lounge/guest sitting room/office lobby. It is here that the technical core of the house lies concealed behind a wall of panelled cupboards. Included here are the main switchboard cable management system and the central hub and racking system for the home theatre, DVD, VCR, Sky decoder and central sound system.
In the floor under the desk is a control panel giving access to all the telephone, sound, TV, computer and power points that a sophisticated home office would require. This is also repeated in the skirting in case the room was to be used as a bedroom and the room is wired for sound through the ceiling. The lighting and sliding exterior shutters are identical to those in the other bedrooms but the floor is a dark, dramatic sweep of recycled iron bark, stained and polished to match the other timber features of the house.
The property has it's own floating jetty and a long accesway to the rear leading to a launch ramp for smaller craft.
Available fully furnished if this is a desired option.
