Bold, innovative architecture and resort-style living combine to create this truly captivating family sanctuary in Old Greenhithe. Every element of the design, build and finish has been executed to an exemplary standard, creating a dramatic yet very warm and inviting environment.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is positioned on flat 1565m2 grounds in Thomas Hunter Lane, which is widely regarded as one of Old Greenhithe’s most exclusive avenues. The enclave is tucked off Roland Road and comprises a collection of well-separated, luxury residences that enjoy an excellent sense of privacy from one another. There’s no through traffic so it’s very quiet, plus it’s located close to the village, reserves, parks and local schools the area is renowned for. With only two roads in and out, Greenhithe has retained a peaceful feel and enjoys a lovely community vibe.
Soaring lines and angles and masterful design have created exceptional proportions and incredible light inside, which is immediately experienced through the two-level, open atrium foyer. Two sets of doors open into the vast ground floor living, dining and kitchen space.
The piece de résistance of the residence is the striking double-storey water feature and tropical rock garden positioned at the centre of the house. It creates a cooling effect in the summer months and lends a soothing soundtrack all year round. A profusion of glass walls and windows throughout showcase lush green garden views, bringing the outside in and illuminating the spaces with light.
Although open-plan, the ground floor is divided into distinct zones for family living and entertaining. The gourmet kitchen has a central island and high-quality appliances, while a double-sided glass fireplace divides the lounge and main living area. The inside flows out to the covered patio, which with its drop-down sides, creates another room of the house and is ideal for all-season entertaining. The current owners have redeveloped the landscaping around the outdoor fire and heated saltwater swimming pool, with a focus on tropical and native plantings. Gardens extend around the side and rear of the property and are fully fenced for kids and pets.
Also on the ground floor, there’s another large lounge/ home gym/ media room that flows out to the covered spa, a powder room, office and separate laundry, as well as internal-access to the double garage and workshop, which can be closed off.
Upstairs, the large lounge has a concealed kitchenette and flows out to the balcony. Three spacious double bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom, while the master suite has its own luxurious ensuite and two walk in wardrobes. All the rooms enjoy a wonderfully elevated outlook over the green ridge in the distance.
Features like extensive underfloor heating, central vac, high-quality drapes and a zoned sound system ensure the ultimate in comfortable, contemporary living within this architectural showpiece.
