This spectacular Greenhithe estate enjoys a prominent and much-admired corner site embracing Roland and Oscar Roads. It’s been designed for family living and entertaining on a deluxe scale, boasting five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas and a heated pool.
The current owners have lived here with their children for the past six years and have relished the community atmosphere Greenhithe has to offer. They wanted to channel this vibe when making the property their own and have created an extraordinary resort-style sanctuary and place for friends, family and neighbours to gather, relax and enjoy. They’ve loved watching their kids grow up and make memories here and the picture-perfect grounds have also hosted major events over the years, including weddings, parties and grand gala functions.
A significant, recent renovation has seen every element of the design finessed to offer a lavish yet liveable environment, with a dedicated focus on form and function. Supremely stylish interiors are inspired by high-end couture – a love of designer fashion has been brought into the aesthetic, with fittings and finishes custom-made and curated to add visual drama and opulence at every turn.
Glass doors open in from the entry foyer to the open-plan kitchen and dining space, where bamboo floors anchor a light wall palette and where feature lighting adds a touch of glamour. Internationally-acclaimed interior specialist Mal Corby designed the kitchen, which boasts an island, scullery and top-quality appliances, plus the signature medusa head that is a decorative focus throughout.
The formal lounge has a wood fire and a wall of bifolds that creates a seamless connection to the outdoors. The loggia is covered with electronic louvres and protected with pull-down blinds, with the outdoor fire and heaters out here allowing for all-season living and entertaining poolside. The grounds and gardens were all dug out and levelled to create an expansive, more functional flat space enveloping the pergola. A hedge was planted around the perimeter to create privacy but still showcase the surrounding green view, and a pebbled boardwalk leads around to the small orchard at the side of the home.
The dedicated kids’ wing on the ground floor has a large rumpus room, along with three bedrooms and a bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms are located upstairs, including the decadent master retreat. It has a private, covered balcony that enjoys magical sunrises, as well as two walk-in wardrobes and a luxurious ensuite with bath.
There is up to 10 off-street parks on the property, along with the internally-accessed double garage. A long list of features includes surround sound, double glazing throughout, heat pumps and a full security system with seven cameras, assuring residents optimum comfort and peace of mind.
This beautiful retreat maximises the lifestyle Greenhithe is so coveted for and is a truly sublime setting in which friends and family can gather and celebrate.
