Property Of The Week: 20A Vaucluse Road, Vaucluse, NSW

An architectural masterpiece located in an exclusive Sydney enclave.

By Terry Christodoulou 18/09/2020

Overlooking Hermit Bay and within walking distance of the water’s edge, this contemporary residence sits on the highest point of the tightly held Hermitage Estate, boasting idyllic views across Sydney Harbour.

Designed by architect Bruce Stafford, the four-storey residence offers almost 1500sqm of living space spread across a double block and holds 7-bedrooms, 8-bathrooms and 12-car parking.

The home is an exercise in light, effortless luxury, offering an airy, connected space that redefines the overused real-estate buzzwords ‘open-plan living’.

The ground floor homes the formal and casual dining, lounge and kitchen and a stacked, sandstone feature which recurs throughout the property. Here, the kitchen boasts an elongated concrete benchtop, fitted with Wolf appliances and a Subzero refrigerator and is complete with a butler’s pantry, cool room and walk-in pantry.

An embedded track of natural hardwood flooring divides the limestone tiling and guides you outside to the heated pool and covered outdoor dining area and terrace with extensive views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

On the top floor land four of the bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite which enjoys ‘his’ and ‘hers’ ensuites – fitted with more sandstone – walk-in robes, and a private terrace. All bathrooms are privy to heated flooring.

On the lower ground floor is the theatre – which features a state-of-the-art Dynalite system – alongside a games room, wine cellar with storage for around 500 bottles and a private gym. The lower ground floor also offers a further two bedrooms and bathrooms and an office.

The basement sees room for as many as seven cars with a lift connecting all the levels. While space for a further five vehicles can be found on the ground floor.

A Sonos sound system runs through the house, while a central smart system controls tech features such as the security, CCTV and automated blinds.

Additional to the main house is a separate, self-contained sandstone guesthouse, complete with a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.

The listing is with Peter Leipnik (+61 402 566 607) and Alexander George (+61 415 699 340) of Badgerfox. Price $30m.
