Positioned within its own magnificent microclimate, this two-hectare Coatesville retreat captures luxurious rural living at its consummate best. The estate is located in illustrious company on Ridge Road, accessed via a sweeping driveway and automated timber gates. The current owners have lived here for the past three years and have masterfully renovated the home and redeveloped the grounds over time, creating the timelessly elegant and picturesque property seen today.
Bright and open living spaces finished with a touch of European flair make the two-level residence a pleasure to live in. Generous dimensions give the interiors a true feeling of space, with solid Rimu floors and plush cream carpets complemented by a soft, light wall palette. A large rustic wooden front door opens into to the ground floor, where the formal lounge has a Schist feature fireplace and distinctly French ambiance.
The dining area and family room is open-plan, with the recently remodelled kitchen the true heart of the home. It’s been designed to offer vast amounts of workspace, storage and a generous breakfast island, while showcasing high-quality Bosch appliances. Multiple sets of bifold doors flow out to the incredibly sunny, private and sheltered outdoor living spaces, which capture panoramic green vistas from every angle and enjoy a natural native bird soundtrack.
Grounds have been transformed and landscaped into a very user-friendly layout, with a sweep of flat lawn for kids to enjoy and pathways created to connect the different zones around the property. Extensive garden lightning illuminates the areas, making for wonderful evening alfresco entertaining, complemented by the large outdoor fireplace the adorns the paved terrace. On the other side of the house, decks envelop the large double swim-spa, which has built in speakers, lighting and wifi for added enjoyment. Steps lead down to decking platform and fire pit, which extends out above the citrus grove, bush and valleys below – including three paddocks that can be divided up for grazing. Established plantings envelop the property, including mature tropical greenery, a fruit orchard, many Birds of Paradise and thatches of fragrant Jasmine.
Back inside, there’s a guest bedroom and bathroom located on the ground floor, before a staircase with wrought-iron balustrade arrives up at the top level. There are three bedrooms located up here – two are serviced by the main bathroom – while the master suite relishes its own private balcony and ensuite. The pièce de résistance is the voluminous entertainment/ home theatre room complete with wet bar, which is the perfect place to enjoy sports, movies and sunsets in the evening.
Not only has this magnificent home been refurbished, it’s been upgraded and modernised to cater to a contemporary lifestyle. It’s elegant and luxurious, yet comfortable and very liveable. The peace and solitude make for a truly tranquil lifestyle, yet the Coatesville village is a short drive from home for a coffee, and Albany’s shopping, dining, transport and education facilities are just 10-minutes away.
With future subdivision potential and truly captivating indoor and outdoor living, this Coatesville estate is a sound investment in your family’s future.
