Set against a backdrop of one of the widest sections of Main River with tranquil views in both directions and to the natural reserve on the other side, 5256 Marine Drive North offers the ultimate in privacy and serenity. This master built home is perfectly positioned to embrace stunning sunsets from the north-west facing outdoor entertaining space, boasting an infinity pool, sun deck and flagstone paved covered alfresco.
Upon arrival, pass through the gatehouse to a classically landscaped courtyard with formal gardens and water fountain, drawing you into the grand entrance.Through the impressive front doors the soaring foyer forks into three distinctive wings within the residence, providing separation of the master suite to the left, additional bedrooms upstairs and the living quarters to the right.
First on the right is the tiled family room with vaulted ceilings, which flows into the generously appointed kitchen exhibiting original solid oak cabinetry and granite bench top. Beyond the kitchen, the grand dining with its palatial 7.8m ceiling and the 36m2 grand living space deliver a modern, open feel. French doors to the covered alfresco area extend the space even further, allowing an easy transition between indoor and outdoor living while drawing in the breeze.
The ground-floor master suite also enjoys outdoor access and views of the river through French doors and wide windows, a walk-in wardrobe and master ensuite with spa bath and his-and-her vanity round out the master suite. On the upper level, separated by a landing at the top of the staircase, a further two bedrooms each with walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and water facing balconies offer generous private spaces for family members or guests. A home office to the left of the foyer could easily be converted to a fourth bedroom and the existing powder room transformed to a full bath to accommodate a larger household.
