Built in 1870, ‘Atherfield’ is a landmark Gothic Revival mansion positioned on a sprawling 1,157sqm landholding. ‘Atherfield’ has undergone a radical reinvention to create a world-class family residence • A grand entrance vestibule with wood-burning fireplace opens up to a lobby where the views over the harbour unfold. The entire entry level is devoted to living and entertaining. A full-length verandah stretches across the residence to connect the formal rooms with the mesmerising harbour panorama,
Anchored by marble fireplaces, elegant reception rooms open via French doors to the deep flagstone verandah and its adjacent sunroom. A custom-appointed kitchen with marble benchtops is tastefully fitted with double butler’s sinks, Miele appliances and an Aga. The layout features three upper level bedrooms including a master wing with northerly views, a luxurious ensuite and bespoke dressing room. A family bathroom with yacht-style timber flooring is appointed with a cast-iron clawfoot bath, antique pedestal basin and marble-topped vanity.
