This magnificent Glenorie lifestyle estate _ with its very own avenue of trees _ is a wonderful offering to the market.
Wrapped by beautiful gardens and rolling lawns, the property at 4 Melton Road is expected to attract strong interest from buyers looking for their own private retreat in Sydney’s northwest. Set to be auctioned next month through Lumby Hampson Real Estate, it includes a resort-like swimming pool, billiards room and championship sized tennis court.
Behind the property’s gated entry, two rows of pecan trees have grown in perfect formation to create a stunning natural archway. By mid-summer the foliage is so thick, the sky can’t be seen when travelling underneath it. In winter, the trees’ curled bare branches have been likened to a living sculpture.
“It is just such a spectacular welcome for visitors and really creates such a beautiful first impression,” said agent Will Hampson.
“The gardens have been designed to have four definite seasons, so you are surrounded by a beautiful ever changing backdrop. The property has all the charm and feel of being in the Southern Highlands, yet it is less than five minutes to Glenorie Village and just 20-minutes to Castle Hill and the Sydney Metro Northwest.”
Listed on the market for the first time in 32 years by its owner-builders, the luxury 2ha property is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and on the high side of the street.
The country style residence, designed by Brentnall Homes, has been inspired by colonial times. Its incredibly spacious interior includes period detailing such as ornate cornices, high skirting boards, exposed brickwork and panelled cathedral ceilings up to 4.8m high.
Built for entertaining, it also features a large timber kitchen fitted with high end European appliances and extra-large fridge. It offers five bedrooms, including a supersized master retreat set in its own private wing with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite plus corner spa bath.
A wide bull-nose veranda links the residence with its two separate garages, accommodating up to seven cars. A separate billiards/games room _ adjoining one of the garages _ could also be suitable as a teens retreat or home office.
“The pandemic has seen a lot of buyers come out to Sydney’s northwest looking for acreage lifestyle, but there is also a lot of demand for properties with garaging, storage and shedding,” Mr Hampson said.
The property’s name is ‘Gumbuya’ which is the Aboriginal word for ‘Meeting Place’. For 15 years, its owners hosted around 100 guests at a special morning tea to raise funds for the Cancer Council. Its picturesque gardens have been designed as three islands and includes a sun-drenched alfresco terrace and gazebo.
The property will be auctioned on September 4 at 11am. To request an inspection or for more information contact Kate Lumby 0414 620 333 or Will Hampson on 0414 620 333.
