Sheer opulence

AGPS would have been handy as I wandered around this vast, but elegant four-bedroom Applecross home.

The magnificent entry foyer is larger than many an apartment, and a massive chandelier hanging over an impressive wrought iron staircase spotlights gorgeous honey-gold American oak parquetry flooring.

French chateau

There’s a guest wing on the ground floor, with french doors onto a balcony.

On the other side of the foyer is a gracious sitting room with a decorative gas-powered coal-fireplace.

Timber-framed, glass doors look out onto a courtyard garden worthy of a French chateau with an imposing water feature, and a pool, sheltered from view by a row of manicured Manchurian pear trees.

Double doors lead to the kitchen and informal dining area.

The lavishly appointed and uber-generous kitchen has granite benchtops and splash back, and solid American oak cabinetry.

“Knock, knock.”

Who’s there is a Miele Knock2open dishwasher, just knock twice and it opens automatically. Say what!?

The owner reckons her home is a “good party house”, and with a delightful Mediterranean courtyard, and a killer gabled roofed barbecue kitchen area with a wood fired pizza oven you can see why.

On the second level a gargantuan sitting room separates the main bedroom from the children’s wing.

The palatial main bedroom is on this level, and almost floor-to-ceiling windows take in river and city views.

The ensuite is also generous with double, granite-topped vanities, and a bidet. And stepping into the generous walk-in-robe, lights came on as if by magic.

I’d been puzzling over bedroom numbers, when I opened what I thought was a large cupboard and discovered the kids’ quarters.

A huge study/play area has a built in desk, the two huge bedrooms have their own balcony with river and city views, and there’s a spa and double vanities in the bathroom.

Wine lovers and gym junkies are well catered with a a climate-controlled wine cellar, and a gym off the four-car garage, which also has a work/storage area.
