About this listing
It's rare to find a home where the vision of architect and owners merge so seamlessly. Our subject is the incomparable result of the incredible rapport between David Ponting and our clients, whose shared passion for simplicity - both in form and function - has created an iconic luxury abode which remains firmly grounded in its semi-rural environment.

Drawing on the inspiration of Mies Van der Rohe & Frank Lloyd Wright, the home's clean lines reflect a minimalist approach to design, while embracing international sophistication. The zen-like environment is enhanced by a monochromatic colour scheme, where contrasting textures emphasize the play of light on glass, stone, water and timber.

Given its pedigree and high level of specification throughout, it's no surprise the home was featured in the April 2018 edition of Urbis Magazine (issue 103). Four years in the making, expert artisans and stonemasons were instrumental during the construction period. Ground source underfloor heating, state of the art temperature control and C-bus electrical systems ensure that comfort and security are at your fingertips.

With a floor area exceeding 800m2, the home is truly breathtaking in its dimensions. The nucleus of the home features an internal pool and spa, capped by a spectacular skylight, which acts as a vast light well. Entertaining options are plentiful, with two kitchens, a separate media room and louvred terraces for year round al fresco dining. All four bedrooms are ensuited, with the master featuring a "his and hers" ensuite which has to be seen to be believed.

The crisp lines extend to the landscaping, where exterior adornment is restricted to schist "wings" which extend out into the surrounding green fields. With 4 hectares of land, your outlook is restful and uninterrupted; a long winding driveway leads you from secure entry gates, enhancing the sense of separation.

With their children now grown, our owners are farewelling their "labour of love" for exciting new adventures. To fully explore the intricacies of this incredible home, please call me to arrange your private viewing.
