20 Linlithgow Rd, Toorak VIC 3142, Australia
Description: “Contemporary and commanding in presence, this 2010 award winning home features scale and attention to detail on a level rarely seen. Set on a quiet leafy Toorak street, with an anodized aluminium light-reflecting front fence, the entrance to this amazing home is both intriguing and inviting. A large mound of asparagus ferns adds colour, movement and contrast to the large protruding concrete colonnades that provide a protected entrance and modern take on a port cochere.
The frosted glass front door reveals a warm light filled expansive living space divided by a glass atrium and pair of partition walls that delineate formal and informal living areas. The elegant formal dining and living space overlook an elevated outdoor terrace that runs a good deal of the length of the home and seamlessly connects the indoor and outdoor spaces via floor to ceiling glass doors. Honed, heated Australian Bluestone walkways contrast with American Oak floors and the solid blade weight bearing wall provides a wonderful backdrop for a dramatic art collection.
The kitchen and informal living area are spectacularly appointed with a diverse range of hidden yet exquisite features that add comfort and wow to this amazing property. The kitchen is complemented by a large pantry as well as a separate scullery and incorporates an extensive collection of Miele appliances.
A choice of lift or American Oak stairs provide access to the 20 metre indoor pool, gym and entertainment level below or the bedroom floor above. The master bedroom encompasses a luxurious en-suite, expansive dressing room, sitting area and a rooftop terrace. Two guest bedrooms share a large Cararra Marble bathroom whilst a library lined corridor leads to his and hers offices incorporating floor to ceiling sliding room dividers and a meeting room which could also easily be utilised as fourth and fifth bedrooms.
This truly unique estate will appeal to the most discerning of buyers. It represents leading edge architecture and truly encapsulates the art of creating a wonderful balance between form and function.”
