The ultimate waterfront oasis beckons with no expense spared on this architectural gem. This recipient of The Master Builder’s Renovation Award for 2020 basks in the ultimate north-facing aspect and is tucked away in the sought-after suburb of Sorrento.
From the moment you enter 72 Blair Athol Crescent, Sorrento you can feel the warmth of a family home encapsulated in style and grandeur.
“Balancing style while keeping the warmth of a family home was the main goal in the renovation process. That was important to us from the beginning,’’ confirms the vendor.
“We didn’t want it to be just another beautiful house. We wanted it to be home as well and I believe we have done that.”
“Every finish is new except for the windows. We had a specialist come to our home and he stated that we should not change the windows, as they give the property character.”
The living and lounge room are fitted with gently curved floor to ceiling glass windows that capture the expansive water views.
Every level showcases a spectacular outlook, whether it be the water, the city skyline, the hinterland or the peaceful surrounding garden.
“When you consider buying a home like ours, the view has a huge influence, this house has a million dollar view.”
“Dolphins and swans often swim by, and we see many fish as well – it is just beautiful.”
Tucked away in complete privacy on the ground level is a supersized waterfront pool plus spa that basks in resort-like luxury.
“It is beautiful out there, we love that spot downstairs because it feels like a holiday.”
The master suite is the ultimate addition boasting a built-in coffee station, boutique- style dressing room and deluxe ensuite with ten jet circular spa and a large balcony capturing expansive views.
“We have this beautiful balcony with the city skyline and the mountain view. So, every morning I make a cup of coffee and go outside, it’s perfect.”
The chef’s kitchen with a butler’s pantry is a dream. It is fitted with top-of-the-range gourmet Miele appliances, two Italian marble island benches, two ovens and warming drawers. This is the centre of the family home where everyone comes together.
“While we’re cooking, the kids are on the other side talking to us and telling us about their day. It’s such a beautiful space to be in.”
Movie buffs will relish in the home theatre space set up with a 130″ screen, tiered seating, soundproofing, new 4k projector and Blu-ray, Apple TV and surround sound subwoofers.
“We built a butler’s pantry that joined the kitchen into the cinema room. When we want something to eat or drink we can easily grab it.”
This spectacular property is situated in a central yet peaceful position of the Gold Coast, minutes from all major amenities.
The completed renovations have transformed this property onto the ultimate dream home, all the new owners need to do is walk in, put their feet up and enjoy the view.
