This Olde Greenhithe sanctuary is a spectacular statement of architectural drama and design brilliance.  As much a luxury retreat as a calming, soothing feast for the senses, the residence offers four-bedrooms, three bathrooms and three living areas, and is enveloped within gardens brought to life by award-winning landscape specialist Jules Moore.

Conceived by renowned architect Simon Pirie, the cedar home was only a year old when the current owners purchased it in 2017. Since then, they have masterfully reimagined and refined the aesthetic to reflect their holistic way of life, assisted by Venture Architectural. This collaboration has created a truly beautiful, bespoke living environment, comprising over 400m2 of extraordinary space for family life and entertaining.

The beauty of Wainoni Heights is its elevation and views, with number 22a enjoying a majestic aspect from its favourable position. Finding such a large contemporary home in Olde Greenhithe is also a rare and highly sought-after phenomenon. The well-connected neighbourhood is within easy walking distance from Wainoni Park, as well as being close to the motorway onramp for travelling farther afield. Greenhithe is loved for its friendly community and welcoming village vibe, with the local shops and eateries catering to most daily needs.

A security gate protects the 1288m2 estate, creating an expansive, private and fully secure expanse for kids to enjoy safely. There’s space for several vehicles to be parked off-street, as well as a carpeted double internal garage.

Elegant yet very liveable interior elements have been curated to soothe and relax, creating a restful haven that connects with and celebrates its lush garden setting. Natural finishes and a refined palette soften the extraordinary proportions ensure a great flow between spaces.

A soaring wall of glass in the double-height entry foyer frames vibrant green plantings outside and is crossed from above by a glass bridge.

The formal lounge can be closed off via cavity sliders when required. It’s warmed by a gas fireplace in winter and flows out to an enclosed courtyard, which enjoys expansive vistas across the forest beyond. Entertaining on a grand or intimate scale comes into its own in the voluminous, open-plan living, dining and show-stopping kitchen. An Oak wall is a striking feature at one end of the room, while at the other, the chef’s kitchen boasts an enormous island, high-quality appliances and butler’s pantry, which has direct access out to the organic vegetable and herb picking garden. A sophisticated lighting system can be adjusted to set many different moods, with the outdoors illuminated with the same calibre of lighting set-up.

Glass stackers flow out to the alfresco living, where an enormous LouvreTec canopy creates an outdoor room and ensures that all-year-round entertaining is an option. It’s enhanced with a concrete open fire, barbeque and wine fridge. The pool is enclosed within glass fencing so kids are always in sight, with the platform of flat lawn and space for the trampoline offering lots of options for play. 

Also on the ground floor are the separate media room, powder room, large office and separate laundry.

All accommodation is located upstairs, with the master suite enjoying floor-to-ceiling glass walls capturing panoramic views of the Lucas Creek, as well as a luxury ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. One of the other bedrooms up here also has an ensuite, while the other two are serviced by the fully-tiled family bathroom, which has heated floors and a rainhead shower. 

While enjoying a sense of whimsical beauty, every aspect of the grounds has been carefully considered to offer something to cherish and enjoy during all seasons. Every single plant was brought in to create the subtropical paradise, with many rare and obscure species showcasing dazzling textures, tones and splashes of colour. The flourishing fruit orchard features Blackboy peach, plum, feijoa, lemon, lime and tangelo trees.

This magnificent Greenhithe sanctuary is in a class of its own and a must view for those who seek a modern masterpiece within spectacular, private grounds.
