French style, lavish proportions and the finest finishes are all on display inside (and outside) this stunning five-bedroom home
Say “oui” to Englehart Homes’ stately, architect-designed, five-bedroom residence, which boasts the grandeur of a French chateau while matching uncompromising quality with value. This French style home is definitely the epitome of elegance.
Welcoming with style
Sashay through customised wrought-iron entrance gates and along sawn bluestone paving to the grand colonnade entrance projecting from a classical facade with intricate mouldings, elegant French windows and wrought-iron Juliet balconies. An imposing Spanish slate roof with a bell profile crowns the 570sqm French-inspired home, adding to the impression of a centuries-old estate.
Inside, state-of-the-art amenities integrate with graciously appointed living and family spaces. An elegant foyer defined by engaged columns introduces formal living with its carved marble fireplace and glazed bespoke cabinetry. Embracing the return of arched architecture, and in keeping with the French theme, a substantial arch with half-metre-thick walls separates formal living and dining. The home’s centrepiece is a spectacular French oak spiral staircase with proprietary wrought-iron heart-patterned balustrades lit by a handcrafted leadlight dome above. Wood continues underfoot, with high-end European parquetry extending throughout the ground level.
A grand French fairy tale
Five living zones include formal and family living and dining areas, outdoor and upstairs living and a theatre. Downstairs, a large study joins a guest suite with private bathroom and walk-in robe. With more than enough room to swing a baguette, the vast kitchen, dining and living space enjoys a substantial island bench wrapped in first-grade Calacatta marble. A sweeping bay window looks over the pool and bifold doors open to a European-style loggia with square colonnades and an integrated granite kitchen. A full-scale second kitchen and walk-in pantry adjoin the open kitchen.
The grand master suite runs across the upper level with capacious twin walk-in robes and an ultra-luxe marble ensuite. Three family bedrooms and a living zone complete the upper level; two bedrooms each have an ensuite, study and walk-in robe. Appointed to the highest standards throughout, this stunning home is a French fairy tale and a functional family home.
