Property description
ENTERTAINER'S PARADISE
A home that creates extraordinary family living that morphs into an entertainer's paradise. That offers a unique once-off lifestyle which extends over four levels with a three stop lift to add to the experience. A typical free hold home experience without the feeling of being surrounded by neighbours. A home offering a feeling of space and expansive views over the golf course that extends to Linksfield Ridge and the iconic Ponte Building. For the family that is looking for a freehold home that offers extraordinary penthouse style living on a grand scale. From a unique maintenance free garden, secure direct access to Wander's Golf Course to the full-size action soccer field on the roof, and an additional Sky Bar for watching sunsets with cheese and wine. Offering a monumental master suite that opens to both sides of the house including an extensive built-in cupboard system and extravagant glass display cabinets par excellence, with his and hers toilets and bidets'. A further four massive on-suite bedrooms, enormous linen and suitcase storage room, panic room with toilet, coffee tea bar kitchenette with integrated fridge, and lift lobby lounge all on the same level. On a separate mezzanine level, the home has a self-contained guest suite offering a kitchen/lounge, large balcony, large bedroom and full bathroom on-suite. All bedrooms offer a two-meter-wide doorway with large double cavity sliding doors off a wide passage. Natural light and cross ventilation are achieved at a grand scale throughout the bedrooms as the wide passage doors allow for a seamless visual and sensory connection to both sides of the house. Stand on the balcony on one side of the house and look right through the house onto the golf course views. The house visually sucks the golf course into every room on the first floor. The large cavity sliding doors achieve a psychological effect of no doors. The combination of no visual doors and wide openings off the passage achieves a seamless integration of spaces. A family is able to live in seamless synergy with each other on the first floor by moving through spaces rather than stepping through typical doorways into separate spaces/rooms. Of course, when privacy is needed, close the doors completely or partially dependent on mood. Again, we wish to achieve a home that is able to adapt to mood and circumstance. Solid balcony upstands have been designed to purposefully protect you from the golfers view whilst lying on the bed. In this manner you are able to open the curtains and doors on a Sunday and continue to lie on your bed in complete privacy. The first floor offers central air conditioning which, due to the massive amount of natural cross ventilation, may only be required for warming in winter. All bathrooms offer underfloor heating. Ground floor, first floor and roof levels are connected by a wide magical winding staircase. The effect is to create a beautiful juxtaposition between organic lighting and organic three level staircase combination, and the structured rectangular form of the house itself. The ground floor begins with a contemporary drive-through "Porte-Cache" styled triple garage. No more sneaking into your house through a dark enclosed garage and a standard door. In this unique house the garage welcomes and invites your soul in. The triple garage flooring, ceiling and lighting is finished off in exactly the same finishes as the main living area. The garage mirrors the main house and feels as if you are driving into and parking inside your house. In this manner the home achieves an amazing sense of arrival and presence without losing the welcoming flair of a family home. In addition to this there is a 1,8m wide glass sliding door that connects the garage to the main living ar
