This property is in an absolute league of its own, where stunning, French-inspired architecture combines with exceptional stonemasonry and quality craftsmanship to create a property colloquially known as 'the castle' but aptly named 'Chateau La Tourelle'. Resting on 2.5 glorious acres in sought-after Tanawha, this magnificent residence boasts serene views encapsulating the Pacific Ocean with totally private rainforest views in the foreground. Verging on being irreplaceable, there was no compromise on quality in the construction of Chateau La Tourelle, which took a stonemason more than four years to build using hand-cut solid slabs of sandstone. This beautifully crafted residence cleverly merges the sophistication of French-inspired architecture with a very modern and classic approach to living, all spread over three opulent floors. There's an emphasis on grandeur and first-class throughout, with a mix of pitched timber ceiling features, travertine floors, white solid marble staircases and intricate sandstone inlays. Large, three-metre balconies overlook the fabulous terraced grounds which include two dams, and a fully self-contained studio/guesthouse which has its own separate street access and would act as a fabulous dual-income portal or home-business headquarters. The open living zones spill out to lush, royal-like lawns and a huge sandstone alfresco area set beside a stunning inground pool and barbecue terrace. There are five oversized bedrooms (two with ensuites) throughout the main residence, plus an additional two bathrooms + powder rooms, an office and library, not to mention all the additional extras you'd expect in a home of this calibre including a wine cellar. Downstairs features an elaborate indoor entertainment room which wouldn't look out of place in a Las Vegas resort. Complete with a fully professional bar - this area only further adds to the 'wow' factor of this truly magnificent property. Chateau La Tourelle is simply unsurpassed and is total privacy and seclusion just minutes from elite schools, University, train station, shops and pristine beaches. Truly unique - truly exceptional. Ideally situated and less than a mile away, visit the Botanic Gardens and The Tanawha Valley Golf & Tennis Club.
