Sophisticated suburban oasis

Offering French provincial sophistication, custom-designed comfort and a resort-style lifestyle, this magnificent East Maitland home represents the epitome of grandeur and style.

Tucked away in a peaceful corner of the prestigious Rathluba Estate on a 4623sqm block fringed by towering trees, established shrubs and manicured hedges, this remarkable residence was constructed by a master builder as their family home.

Featuring the strength and surety of steel frames and trusses, the home has been designed with a split level layout to make the most of the block's natural geography, with the oversized triple garage underneath surrounded by extensive under-house storage.

The layout also ensures the home has a commanding street presence, with a wide tiled staircase leading up to elevated entry and suitably impressive double front doors framed by leadlight glass panels.

The sense of grandeur continues from the moment you step into the lavish foyer, which sets the scene for the rest of the interior with its intricate concave plasterwork, opulent chandelier and decorative ceiling rose.

Meticulously planned to the smallest detail, the home's French provincial styling creates a sense of refined elegance throughout, set off by the soaring 3m ceilings, a warm neutral colour palette and premium quality finishes including beautiful porcelain tiles and 100 per cent pure wool carpet.

Heritage skirting, ornate cornice work, detailed ceiling roses and delicate chandeliers have been incorporated throughout the house for lavish consistency, while numerous sets of French doors complement the home's graceful style.

The doors also play a more practical role, flooding the living areas with natural light while creating multiple connections with the wraparound verandah and Juliet balconies, where you can spend time enjoying the picturesque view over the treetops towards Maitland.

Cream-coloured drapes with a scalloped valance and sheer curtains provide a sophisticated dressing for the doors and windows in the front formal lounge and dining rooms, while the more casual open plan living area at the rear sports window furnishings finished in a darker cornflower blue print.

A natural gas fireplace in this living space provides cosy comfort with plenty of charm where the family can come together to relax, while the matching decorative timber mantle and wall-hung shelf reflect the elegance of the more formal areas.

Designed with an open plan layout, this carpeted rear living room flows through to the adjoining casual dining space, where gorgeous parquetry brush box timber flooring provides a practical and beautiful choice underfoot while a lovely bay window offers a stunning view over lush leafy background and inground swimming pool.

The parquetry flooring continues into the adjoining gourmet kitchen, which has been designed to deliver the ultimate space for the chef of the house whether they're cooking the family meal or catering for an elegant dinner party.

Twin island benches, custom-built with a subtle curve that mirrors the detail in the ceiling above, and a stunning timber-framed hexagonal skylight create an eye-catching entry for the one-of-a-kind kitchen, complemented by the stunning, dark textured appearance of the 40mm granite benchtops.

Paired with the simplicity of white Shaker-profile cabinetry, the kitchen maintains the home's sense of refined sophistication, while also delivering a long list of luxury features including the freestanding 900mm electric oven and gas stove with removable teppanyaki hotplate.

A single step up into the hallway next to the kitchen leads into the home's private master bedroom wing, where the vast parents' retreat awaits.

An expansive room that can accommodate a king-sized bed setting as well as a spacious private lounge area, the master suite also features a well-appointed walk-in wardrobe and a detailed arched entry leading into an opulent ensuite, which has been lavishly fitted with a customer-designed 40mm marble-topped twin basin vanity, separate shower and deep corner spa bath where you and your partner can soak away the worries of the day.

The main family bathroom is another stylish space, with a recessed wall-hung vanity, porcelain floor-to-ceiling tiles, a large shower recess and a luxurious bath with stepped entry, as well as a separate toilet for family-friendly practicality.

The home features three additional king-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, while another versatile space could be transformed into a large fifth bedroom or continue to be used as a well-equipped home office complete with a built-in desk and shelving.

An oversized laundry with plenty of storage and a hideaway ironing board, and an adjacent powder room complete the home's internal accommodation, however the property also features a spacious self-contained studio overlooking the pool area, which comes complete with its own bathroom, kitchen and open plan living space and would make an ideal granny flat, guest accommodation or teenager's retreat.

The huge concrete saltwater pool is the central feature of the backyard immediately to the rear of the main residence, surrounded by crazy sandstone paving, glass pool fencing and sandstone retaining walls topped with manicured hedges for added privacy.

A tiled water feature adds to the resort-style ambience of the pool yard, while immaculately maintained lawn and tropical garden areas add to the secluded serenity of the space, making you feel a world away from the surrounding suburban landscape.

Set in the middle of the wedge-shaped block, the home is nestled between beautifully landscaped areas that can be enjoyed for the added separation they create between you and your neighbours, or explored for their potential for a future development of a second dwelling (subject to council approval).
