A long driveway slices through sweeping lawns before branching out through beautiful French flower gardens, the evocative setting for this luxurious, two-year-old French Colonial-style abode, named St Claire.
There’s more of the same out back, but let’s get to some pretty special interiors, on display throughout three pavilions – two connected via a glass walkway; the other, an external one.
Stunning designer wallpapers rise up three metres to ornate-corniced ceilings; arched fanlights perch above french doors; gorgeous chandeliers draw the eye; oak flooring is oh-so French; and marble mantels do their luxe lark. It’s the best of French Colonial, moulded beautifully for today.
The showstopper main living domain (central pavilion) incorporates a sitting area with a fireplace, and a magnificent dining zone. Also on board are home theatre and piped music systems.
Bespoke Shaker cabinetry, punctuated with a Belling cooker and dual dishwashers, spans the huge kitchen’s width, while an expansive and stylish island bench is crisp-white, echoing trims and wall paint all through.
The impressively proportioned east wing delivers up two lovely, spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room in keeping with the home’s décor, plus a study/third bedroom with lavish storage shelves.
The large laundry and access to the integrated double garage (with good storage space) are also in this wing.
The externally accessed west wing/guest house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a lounge room with a fireplace, and kitchen facilities.
There are spots in the back gardens to set up for dining in the sunshine, and gracious verandahs provide retreat when shelter is sought. A potable bore is reticulated to the gardens.
Also on offer are zoned heating and cooling throughout, double glazing, 250,000-litre water tank storage, a machinery shed – views towards the Mount.
The land is about 9.8 hectares, and the culinary treats of Trentham village are a five-minute scoot in the car away, while sensational spa country attractions are all around.
