The Sanctuary Manor
NEW LISTING! A picturesque private estate showcasing refined al fresco dining and lounging, resort style pool and spa, large private tranquil gardens and chic interiors.
Immerse yourself within the absolute serenity and picturesque scenery of this exquisite Mount Eliza estate, offering a sublime setting for upmarket entertaining and relaxed enjoyment just moments away from the bay. With glimpses of the water between the trees and the feeling of seclusion amid beautifully designed gardens and a poolside setting, there’s plenty of space to sit back and relax by the fire or sprawl out to take advantage of the unique al fresco space on offer.
Incorporating the bricks and arched French doors from a 19th-century historic rural residence, this beautiful home exudes the warmth and comfort of a country estate yet provides sensational modern comfort through elegant designer touches and luxurious amenities.
The home reveals a beautiful architectural extension with an inspired octagon design, incorporating the main entrance hall, a glass-encased formal living room with a roaring open fireplace, and a large dining room perfect for extravagant dinner parties. An oversized stone island bench provides ample preparation space in the kitchen, matched by a 900mm dual fuel stove and a large butler’s pantry. Hire a private chef and enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the casual living area or by the pool whilst they create culinary masterpieces. Adjacent to the kitchen is a relaxed family living room with a wood fireplace and dedicated study space.
Accommodation is aplenty, with two separate wings, each comprising two bedrooms. The modern architectural extension includes an indulgent main bedroom with his-and-her walk-in robes, a marble-encased spa ensuite with a twin shower, and a second king bedroom with access to the main bathroom. Several interior living areas are matched by the exceptional outdoors, where a north-facing deck invites year-round gatherings by the heated pool and spa beside the warmth of a roaring outdoor fireplace.
The second wing comprises two king ensuite bedrooms with walk-in robes, each dressed in the perfect blend of turn-of-the-century and modern style and offering direct access to the poolside area via striking reclaimed arched French doors. Exuding a sense of calm throughout, this exceptional home is temperature-controlled for comfort and secure via automated gates and is a true escape from everyday life, allowing couples, larger families and visitors alike a home away from home where you can relax, indulge and savour the serenity.
