For Sale $1,550,000 - House
Escape to your own sub-tropical resort, less than an hour from Sydney CBD by train or car from Berowra Heights.
Far from the hustle and bustle, living in this beautiful tri-level home will make you feel a million miles away from the troubles of the world. From the moment you alight on your own private jetty and walk through your own Balinese sub-tropical garden, bathed in the dappled sun that comes through the trees, you will fall under the spell of the river and this property.
The property is known on the river as “Binda Cottage” an Aboriginal word for ‘Deep Waters’ and the river is several metres deep off the end of the jetty where you can go for a swim, watch the bream and mullet swim past, throw in a fishing line or just moor your boat.
On entering the front door and atrium you will see that the ground floor has been completely dedicated to your master suite. This is truly a grand suite, central to the room is a king size bed positioned to take in the view through glass sliding doors. Go to sleep in silence and wake up to the sounds of the abundant birdlife welcoming you to the day.
The doors spread open to a large spacious deck that runs the width of the house. An old Balinese day bed sits in the middle of the deck surrounded by luxurious plants, inviting you to enjoy an afternoon nap or read your favourite book.
The bathroom is no less grand. Indulge in the sunken spa after you have showered and relaxed in the indoor sauna. Full length windows let in the ambience of the river, trees and garden.
There is also a private gym and large walk-in wardrobe adjoining the master suite.
The first floor sits amongst the treetops and overlooks the river. Designed to feel like you are part of nature, large glass windows let in the warm sun and blur the boundary between outside and inside. Beautiful spotted gum timber floors and earthy colours extend the feeling.
Walk onto the deck through a covered area used for more intimate gatherings and then an open deck for outdoor lunches and dinner parties.
The first floor features a contemporary designer kitchen less than 12 months old with new appliances integrated into the cabinets hiding the fridge and dishwasher, separate dining room, reading nook and a Balinese styled bathroom.
On the second floor you will find two large carpeted bedrooms separated by a library study that can be used as a home office or just a place to find privacy to read and think.
The property also boasts a substantial studio used by a well-known sculptor on the river whose works are displayed throughout the house, some of which will be included with the sale of the property. The studio can continue to be used for artistic pursuits or converted into a large bedroom.
