Location: Adelaide, Australia
Price: A$5.7 million (US$4.3 million)
“The vision for the property was that it would provide the ultimate private family retreat,” said Michael Stentiford, South Australia Sotheby’s International Realty real estate agent about this home in Adelaide. Spread out across three levels, the home is “large enough to house the extended family or even multi-generational living.”
Company can further spread out around the bottom level of the home, which features a media room, an indoor swimming pool and a rumpus room that doubles as a gym.
“The pool has every conceivable option, including twin heating options—a gas system if you want immediate warmth and a new electrical systems which is more cost effective to run—and there are swim jets, spa and fountain features,” Mr. Stentiford said. “This is serviced by a full kitchen and his and hers changing rooms.”
The main living area has uninterrupted views of the beach. The west-facing home also has floor-to-ceiling windows and doors with “blue” glass to eliminate glare.
And it’s among South Australia’s premium coastal properties. According to Mr. Stentiford, “That section of beachfront would be known as ‘millionaires row.’ The home is further complemented by a number of large properties. To purchase just the land along this section costs in excess of A$2 million and then you start your building expenses,” he said.
The owner took several months to scout the home’s location, away from the hustle and bustle of hotels, shops and parking lots. Yet, it is not far from Adelaide Airport, golf courses and Adelaide’s city center.
Mr. Stentiford called the area “a tightly held oasis.”
The 12,195-square-foot home rests on 0.18 acres and has seven bedrooms and seven full bathrooms.
Realty Design served as the architectural team and Bella Design and Build built the home, with nods to the oceanic surroundings in the glass entry reflecting the bow of a boat and the curves of the sand hills worked into the facade.
Italian marble tiling and chandeliers can be seen throughout the home.
The kitchen features a nearly 23-foot marble bench with integrated power outlets, a matching dining table and Miele appliances. The en-suite bathrooms all feature under floor heating. A three-floor elevator, eight separate air-conditioning systems and security systems add to the splashy innovation of the home.
The home opens directly to a beach that is not accessible to the public. Great for indoor or outdoor entertaining, the home has two al fresco balconies, a barbecue area and plenty of space inside to dine or lounge.
The home is directly on the St. Vincent Gulf coast while being minutes from the family-friendly town center in Adelaide.
