An Architectural Tour de Force
Elegant and exclusive are just two words to describe this desirable Fendalton home perfectly placed in a prestigious enclave within steps of Hagley Park and the CBD. It's little surprise this 539m2 abode took two years to complete, such is the extent of the artisanal and technological innovation showcased within its striking concrete and cedar exterior. Our sellers judiciously appointed a brilliant team to bring their vision to life, with esteemed Canterbury architect David Sheppard (Sheppard + Rout) leading the charge, ably backed by the construction expertise of award-winning Gregg Builders. Equally impressive inside, a coterie of acclaimed design experts has contributed to the timeless interior, from bespoke American White Oak cabinetry masterminded by Ingrid Geldof to Jane Swinard's nature-inspired palette, with sleek solid oak flooring and a horizontal sweep of cedar cleverly linking indoors and out. Host friends and family with ease, thanks to a series of interwoven living and dining options, plus a lavishly appointed media room and an alluring office boasting dual terrace access. Circulation corridors facilitate an easy transition from space to space, with glass sliders introducing abundant solar gains along with effortless access to an outdoor kitchen and heated inground pool framed by secure 1295m2 grounds. Brilliantly configured for entertaining, the kitchen's vast centre island is encircled by luxe Miele appliances and a generous walk-in scullery. A ground-floor guest suite is partnered by a further three fully ensuited bedrooms upstairs, including the showstopping master furnished with gas fire and sumptuous walk-in wardrobe. The fully integrated Daikin heating and cooling system regulates temperatures while a carpeted triple garage affords ample space for vehicles and storage, with electric gates safeguarding your haven. New homes of this calibre are rarely presented to the market and a personal tour is highly recommended.
