You certainly do know when you have stumbled upon a truly 'Palatial Living' home when it's listed by realtor Ken Jacobs who is an affiliate with Christies Great Estates [giving the discerning buyer the greatest choice in luxury properties in Australia].
Need I say more - except that this might be [one] of my dream estates located in one of my favourite areas on Sydney's Upper North Shore, in a devine little suburb Warrawee. Take a look...But keep your jaw up! Enjoy,
Agent's Blurb.... Ken Jocobs - an affliate of Christies Great Estates.
One of the most spectacular properties you will encounter in Sydney, Bremon is a magnificent 6,400sqm estate discretely located in an exclusive, leafy Upper North Shore enclave. This breathtaking home was designed by renowned architect Espie Dods who took inspiration from colonial-era architecture, in particular Elizabeth Bay House. Surrounded by magnificent sculpted gardens, it presents an irreplaceable offering designed for luxurious family living and entertaining on a grand scale.
Timeless elegance - Completed in 2000 after a lengthy construction period, the 2,700sqm (approx) mansion achieves a timeless appeal. At first glance it could quite easily be a revived residence from a bygone era, with its stately proportions and classic façade. Originally built for oil magnate Pat Burke, the home is breathtakingly beautiful without ostentation. No detail has been overlooked and no expense spared in the creation of a home of incredible aesthetic impression and immense functionality.
Majestic grounds - Bremons grounds are a magical highlight. The impeccably manicured meandering gardens are divided into a variety of private areas by sculpted box hedges. Designed for effortless alfresco entertaining, the covered terrace features an integrated gas barbecue, pizza oven and wall-mounted heaters. It gazes over the heated pool, Jacuzzi and championship-sized Astroturf tennis court complete with a courtside pavilion. An expansive area of level lawn incorporates a formal rose garden, a vegetable patch, an aviary and a dedicated children's play area with swings and a cubby house. Soothing water features are also dotted around the grounds.
Extensive accommodation - Accommodating the largest of families with ease and complete privacy, this world-class home contains eight ensuite bedrooms, a study, 10 full bathrooms and two powder rooms. Located in its own wing overlooking the garden, the master suite features a luxurious Carrara marble spa bathroom. An enormous self-contained apartment with its own entry creates the perfect haven for guests or staff, while a private two-bedroom teenagers level features its own kitchenette.
A regal entertainer - A grand formal entry foyer welcomes you into the home, presided over by soaring double height ceilings with a domed skylight and sweeping staircase. An extensive selection of entertaining spaces cater to formal and casual occasions, all enjoying level access to the surrounding gardens and terraces. Formal lounge and dining rooms are palatial in their stature while a refined office creates the perfect environment for those working from home. Casual living space incorporates an elegant Carrara marble gas kitchen. There is also a dedicated children's playroom.
