Today we’re bringing you to one of the world’s premier sun-and-sand destinations; Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs in beautiful Australia. Today’s featured property is Pine Cottage, a stunning property on 1,304sqm of land surrounded by the coastal golf courses, National parks and pristine secluded beaches.
Pine Cottage, built in 1901, is an historic property, which the manager of the prestigious nearby Prince Henry Hospital once called home. The home has undergone careful renovations to enhance period features like the home’s marble and cast iron fireplaces, pressed metal walls and ceilings, decorative bi-fold windows and French doors, original New Zealand Kauri pine floorboards and the ornate coving decorating the vaulted 11 foot ceilings. This five bedroom home simultaneously incorporates the newest modern conveniences, with an addition by award winning architect Glenn McCormack of Benson McCormack Architects. Bridging the original building and the new addition is a glass-encased walkway which leads to a 12 meter outdoor heated swimming pool, where you can sit back and take in panoramic views of the ocean from the heated hydro-therapy jacuzzi. Vaulted ceilings in the addition reach 18 feet, with floor-to-ceiling glass panels that open completely, sliding aside to create a unique in indoor/outdoor living space.
The master bedroom features a walk-in dressing area and en-suite bathroom with free-standing Victoria+Albert bathtub and a separate wet room with over sized Grohe rain-head shower, double vanity and separate toilet. A LeGrand Arteor Smart home technology system integrates control of the entertainment, sound, lighting, blinds, climate control and security systems from touch screen panels throughout the home or by iPad, phone and smart device. A Chef’s kitchen features Gaggenau, Liebherr and Asko appliances, with solid granite bench tops and a freestanding mahogany breakfast bar. A fully equipped home theatre, wine cellar, home gym and five-car garage finish off the listing.
For those looking to get away from it all – all except the golf, that is – this is the perfect destination. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Pine Cottage lets onto the fairways of The Coast golf club, a course often compared to the famous 18th hole at St Andrews, Scotland.
