Property Of The Week: 8 Toocooya Rd, Hunters Hill, NSW
A stunning luxury property of proportion and immediate appeal – from the architectural design team behind Bondi Icebergs.
Surrounded by stately heritage homes in Sydney’s coveted Hunters Hill, this contemporary residence proves a striking and unique offering.
Designed by Tanner Kibble Denton – the architectural minds behind the restaurant at Bondi Icebergs – ‘Casacooya’ is a masterclass in meticulous attention to detail.
First impressions are everything in architecture and this elevated home packs a punch even from street level, with a unique bollard-style driveway gate that descends into the ground. The sleek minimalist white facade is complemented by large masonry steps leading up to the front door — seamingly floating above a uniquely welcoming koi pond upon entry.
The dramatic foyer is crowned by a soaring atrium which floods light into the primary living spaces of the ground floor. A vast open plan layout, this communal level combines the kitchen, dining and sunken lounge zones to create a seamless flow inside and out via two iconic grand archways framing the backyard. Built for entertaining, each space dishes up ample room for grand gatherings.
The picture book marble kitchen with large island bench is complemented by a vast butler’s pantry with adjoining laundry and cool room.
Outdoor entertaining is enhanced by a large, covered courtyard, a backyard cabana with ensuite, a level lawn and the self-cleaning, gas-heated, zero-edge pool framed by established gardens (by Paddock Landscapes) and a natural sandstone wall.
Travel upstairs and the emphasis on wide, open spaces continues with a palatial main suite. A wing in itself, this expansive retreat features sweeping views over the water to Gladesville Bridge, a corner lounge with wet bar, two dressing room style walk-in wardrobes illuminated by skylights as well as a full ensuite with freestanding tub. The bedroom opens to a private terrace which flows to the home gym or office sitting atop the pool cabana.
This upper accommodation level is also home to a family room flanked by two more bedrooms, each with ensuite.
Packed with state-of-the-art features and five star finishes, ‘Casacooya’ also boast an impressive concrete ‘statement staircase’, complete home automation, hydroponic heated flooring, security system, underground stormwater tank for garden irrigation of the more than 2000 curated plants and internal walls with hand-applied lime based Marmorino render.
Truly stunning. Truly unique.
