Building Boss to Sell Pride and Joy

This Grasmere property comes with all the bells and whistles.

By Terry Christodoulou 08/11/2019

Out in the outskirts of south-western Sydney sits a sprawling estate with all the mod-cons conceivable.

The six-bedroom Grasmere property sits on 2.54 hectares of land at 5 Berry Close, Grassmere and boasts 1200-square-metres of combined living space. Combine that with five bathrooms dotted throughout the home and a separate granny-flat above a four-car garage and you get quite the expansive space.

This Grasmere property doesn’t lend from the land – instead, the styling juxtaposes it through the use of modernist angular structures, exposed steel beams, industrial fittings and polished concrete floors with confident design elements like the sunken lounge adding undoubted sex-appeal.

Agent Stuart Davies of Davies Inglis Property Camden says the property’s major draw is “The design and the aesthetic, there has been enormous effort and emphasis on the functionality but also on the quality.”

The infamous $50,000 fridge.

The clear vision of owner Nathan Johnson, founder of Manhattan Homes and his barrister wife Jess Glancey sees the home fitted with some outrageous amenities. The $50,000 fridge housed in Calacatta marble, matching the kitchen benchtop, has made some headlines while other frills include a home theatre, billiard room, pool, spa sauna and granny flat.

And while there is plenty of bespoke brass and bold green tiling around the house it’s all very tech-savvy too, with programmable curtains, a fully wired Sonos system throughout the main home, and a lighting system with all security cameras operable through a smartphone.

A bonus for the would-be buyer is that the land has pre-approval for a subdivision of a further three blocks, all over one acre. Or you could just keep it all to yourself.

Price guide is over $6 million.
