The iconic Belvedere heritage house is now on the market. It is located on 136 Milson Road Cremorne Point, NSW and is a seven-bedroom, six-bathroom and two-garage manor. The romantic residence is artfully designed with its classic European-style gardens and windows, decorated with gorgeous greenery. Sited on a double block of land – which is not common for this area – the price is available upon request. Though the property stays true to its historic character, it has been impeccably refurbished, with modern furnishings and light touches to the more traditional features. Both the exterior, interior and landscape design are a stunning homage to the manor’s history and its classic, original style.
The real estate agency AVNU states that the estate is most appropriate for expatriate and professional families seeking a beautiful property with all necessary amenities or “necessities of life” and somewhere near the CBD. Belvedere is a small pocket of nature in the city, as the commute to work is convenient, though afterwards, a European facade awaits. With private access to the Cremorne Reserve and walking trail as well as its close proximity to all lifestyle necessities, this property is perfect for families and those who particularly enjoy their daily run or stroll.
The unmatchable panoramic views of Shell Cove Bay speak for themselves, though the backyard is breathtaking enough to divert anyone’s attention towards it. The flawlessly maintained outdoor area includes a glistening 15 metre swimming pool, gazebo and incredible sundeck, outlined with perfectly manicured hedges. It also includes a deep Saturnia stone alfresco with automatic awning, a modern touch that does not clash with the royal European-style landscaping.
Boatloads of character are exhibited by the climate-controlled wine cellars and not-over-the-top American oak floors work harmoniously with the white walls, creating a white and bright ambience. The extremely grand lounge and dining rooms flow to the outdoors due to the open plan layout and the numerous French-style windows. The master suite is completely luxurious, with an additional walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with a spa. What may be even more attractive are the pair of gourmet island kitchens, with new, sleek European appliances for ultimate functionality.
Also, the manor has ducted air-conditioning and Jetmaster fireplaces, which are serious character pieces, even after undergoing restorations. The walls of the library/study are floor-to-ceiling shelves, filled with books that add a flavour of antiquity and allow some bursts of colour to be a non-permanent part of the design. It is however spacious and not dark or heavy whatsoever.
