THE collective noun for Elks is a gang, and this Elk Glen home could easily accommodate a gang of the North American deer.
So on the off chance you’re looking for a home where the buffalo or elk can roam, this six-bed, three-bathroom abode is for you.
Sitting on a whopping 1558 sqm, it includes a massive entry vestibule, formal lounge, huge open plan and a kids’ wing with a humongous games room, with access to a heated pool.
The formal lounge, or perhaps theatre room, is a grand space with floor-to-ceiling windows and a recessed ceiling.
Spills are easily mopped up in the open plan, with its beautiful marble floors.
Family gatherings are writ large and the huge kitchen is dominated by a central island, with a five-burner stove set in a granite bench top.
There’s more granite on the generous sweep of benches, and you’ll find the biggest appliance cupboard imaginable, along with cupboards aplenty, including a walk-in-pantry.
The covered alfresco could easily accommodate a banquet table, and there would still be room for a lounge suite.
And you can throw a slab of venison on the barbecue in the huge outdoor kitchen, and take a dip in the pool while it cooks. Add a few pot plants and it’ll tizz up beautifully.
The main bedroom is a boudoir of epic proportions, with a recessed area for a couch.
There’s no dark corners in the dressing room thanks to a skylight, and the en suite is almost an insult, because it’s the size of a small apartment, with double vanities, spa and separate shower and WC.
The rest of the bedrooms are located in the opposite side of the home, including one for guests with en suite. Off the bedrooms is a games room big enough to rollerblade across, and a built-in-bar, with a granite-topped servery and sink.
Parking is never going to be a problem, with space for six cars in the garage, which also has a spacious workshop and storage area.
