"Villa Eleanor"

"Villa Eleanor" is a home built of character and substance, a truly unique offering and a landmark opportunity.

A combination of history inspired architecture designed by Maurice Barnes in the year 2000, a beautiful natural setting and a view never to be repeated. This one of a kind home is located on the Lake George Escarpment with 180 degree views as far as the eye can see.

Octagonal in shape with 2960mm ceilings the design is reminiscent of architecture synonymous with Ravenna, Italy. The rooms flow seamlessly and are centred around a magnificent light filled 4m high atrium. To the front of the home is The Great Room, this space could be used as 3 separate sitting rooms, or as one large expansive living area. Travelling clockwise you pass by the first accommodation area, inclusive of two spacious bedrooms and a marble bathroom.

The kitchen is next, U-shape and with loads of storage, a large cooktop and large pantry make entertaining here a pleasure. All the top end accoutrements are here including a 900mm Smeg oven and cooktop with an additional oven & microwave fitted into the bespoke blonde timbered cabinetwork. This, alongside granite benchtops - sure to please the keenest cook. The family dining room is well sited to work in tandem with the kitchen - cosy and yet still part of the action.

The paved courtyard is another highlight of the house, enclosed with pillar brick walls and looking up the escarpment from here is much like an italian movie scene, a grove of olive trees with a half circle of pencil pines sets the tone.

There is also an additional sitting room that opens into the lovely gallery and atrium space. This is the perfect library or study room - its bright with natural sunlight and it's a peaceful, relaxing, it is also an inspiring place to sit.

An unexpected feature is the octagonal marble tiled plate that lifts from the marble floor to reveal a bubbling reticulated fountain that creates a beautiful soft and meditative background soundtrack in this glorious environment.

The master suite is located in the Northern wing of the home. Double doors open onto the private front verandah, whilst the other two windows overlook the landscaped garden - established pomegranate trees & stone walls.

There is a guest suite contained within the main building although separate from the house with a light filled bedroom and ensuite - perfect for visiting family or overflow accommodation.
