Palatial Homes & Gardens - Historic Aspects

Located on Sydney's North Shore - KILLARA, Arnold Street “The Wicker”, c1913, is a landmark residence nestled amidst inspiring Peter Fudge designed gardens. Restored to meticulous standards and flowing over three impressively proportioned levels, providing an enviable lifestyle of understated elegance.

I love the gardening style of Peter Fudge, his passion for strong simple lines and appreciation for the surrounding architecture is what makes his designs in-line with balance, rhythm and unity. I adore the pre-war architecture, the elegance and sheer regality that this home and surrounding gardens portrays. The estate creates a graceful and formidable atmosphere, where Palatial Living is at it's best!

Palatial Homes & Gardens - I love....

I adore the stylish natural stone steps up to the entrance of this beautiful home located in WARRAWEE on Sydney's Upper North Shore. The main entrance to the home is not the only sophisticated walkway flow - where in the garden to the pool and outdoor area we have equally elegant cause to celebrate in symmetry and lusciousness. The home boasts impressive proportions with a versatile floor plan, with coveted rear northerly aspect and seamless integration with the outdoors, this solid brick home blends period grandeur with contemporary additions. Something that looks & feels effortlessly stylish....

I adore these lush gardens in this home located in Sydney's North Shore suburb of LINDFIELD.
It is a truly enticing home on a single level - built in the 1930s this residence is embraced by 1,104sqm of exquisite parterre gardens in an elite east side location. Flawlessly extended, featuring superb living and entertaining areas, impeccable interior finishes and the finest of inclusions throughout. North/east rear aspect, a private pool, and level rear lawns/gardens .

Palatial Homes - I Love ...

I love the grandeur & the elegant simplicity of this home, not to mention the crazy sandstone paving around the azure pool - almost modern retro...
The use of timber through out the home - the french doors, the staircase, & flooring adds a natural sophisticated warmth and compliments the large scale rooms - in height and length.The home which is located on the North Shore in TURRAMURRA , this iinspirational Georgian manor 'Ku-ring-gai' is magnificently set among French provincial style parterre gardens on almost 3000sqm of estate-like grounds. Classical glamour meets the finest contemporary finishes and impressive resort facilities, with Northerly aspects flowing to an Annie Wilkes inspired parterre gardens.
