This six-bedroom, six-bathroom and five-car prestige property in Sydney's Darling Point is more of an estate. Enjoying 2587sqm of land with its own jetty into Sydney Harbour, it's a rare offering with sweeping views in the premium Eastern Suburbs.
There's a further two separate self-contained guest or staff quarters, a private lift, a massive wine cellar along with a boat shed and pool with heated spa at the harbour's edge.
"Nautilus" in Sydney's Sutherland Shire is a sight to behold. The property has seven bedrooms, 19 bathrooms (yes, you've read that correctly) and space for 20 vehicles. Sitting on four foreshore blocks totalling 4,387sqm of land, this home offers unsurpassed luxury living on Burraneer Bay with exquisite architecture and home features, such as two guest pavilions, dual full-size championship bowling alleys, a 2000-bottle cellar, and 3 internal separate lifts.
Oh, there's also a waterfront area with floating pontoon, private wharf, waterfront crane and private beach, as well as deep water mooring for your 78ft vessel.
Newly built to meticulous standards and sold fully furnished and styled by Kira & Kira, 'The Palms' in the Gold Coast's popular Burleigh Heads area has the wow factor.
With an open floor plan, bespoke joinery, a light palette of timber enhanced by irrigated greenery, brass accents and natural feature stone walls, this four-bedroom three-bathroom four-car home is the ultimate beachside oasis.
This Richmond Hill home, created by Neil Architecture in collaboration with Simone Haag, was home to Zoë Fozter-Blake and Hamish Blake for five years. Featured on Grand Designs Australia, it's an exercise in contemporary modern living showcasing pops of personality, perfect for the family.
Perks include pool area, home theatre, gym, temperature controlled wine cellar (1500 bottles) with adjoining bar room and Zoë's peachy-pink and Terrazzo master ensuite. But the pièce de résistance is possibly the best rooftop in Richmond, enjoying 360-degree views of the city skyline, Yarra River and Botanical Gardens.
You don't see too many French-inspired chateaus up for sale in the Dandenong Ranges. This truly unique property is set within an established landscaped garden sanctuary on 2,400sqm, with features like Italian porcelain flooring, imported staircases, wood paneling from French and Belgium Chateaus, thick marble surfaces and the latest high-end appliances. There's also a gold class theatre room for eight and a Roberto Cavalli-inspired inspired cigar room with industrial extraction unit.
The property has a lot of distinctive characteristics. For example, the gardens alone are perfumed by roses, camelias, gardenias, tulips, freesias, hyacinth, jasmine and Mexican orange blossoms, with over 50 custom made pots and several statues including 4 Seasons, Dali Alice in Wonderland and Dali the Surrealist Piano.
'The Hunt House c1956' was brought into luxurious modern-day living by Blockheads Tanya and Vito. Modelled after the iconic 'Dream Home' by legendary Australian architect Neil Clerehan, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom family home features Terrazzo detailing, a pink butler's panty and soundproof basement cinema room.
Another Block listing at the hands of Mitch and Mark, 4 Bronte Court is a four-bed, three-bath family home which embraces modern living and natural light. A charming heritage façade makes way for soaring cathedral ceilings and other features like a landscaped resort-style backyard sanctuary with plunge pool.
Situated on a large 911sqm block, this Hamptons-inspired home offers a slice of country coastal living in Bayside. The mutli-level home enjoys the latest smart home automation, a gorgeous al fresco entertaining area with pool and a basement home cinema and bar.
At the head of the Bronte Court cul-de-sac and with a north orientation, Josh and Luke's urban contemporary abode features vaulted ceilings to airy 6.5-metre heights, asymmetrical clerestory windows, wraparound backyard with alfresco dining area and pool, and a home cinema and games area.
The most searched-for home in Australia for 2021 is none other than Blockheads Ronnie and Georgia's stunningly-executed home at 2 Bronte Court. The pair made a controversial decision to go first at auction, which many speculate lost them hundreds of thousands in profit despite being the most awarded home of this year's series (and clearly a popular choice with viewers).
The property marries sophisticated interior style with quality craftsmanship and functional design, offering four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a garden servery in the deluxe kitchen, a hi-tech basement cinema with starry ceiling, and Tuscan-style wine room framed by an architectural curved staircase. Of course, there's an outdoor entertaining area with pool, too.
