When it comes to luxury features, this landmark Lindfield property ticks all the boxes.
But it is next level spectacular when it comes to surprise features – from the internal staircase slippery slide to the impeccable chook pen with automated pen and citrus orchard.
Once you have spotted the stainless steel slippery slide that curves around the staircase to the upper floor bedrooms, you wonder why more people don’t think of it.
The owners of this unique property at 17 Mackenzie St, have poured their hearts and souls in creating a home that is as beautiful as it is sustainable.
Rammed earth walls, recycled bricks and cor-ten steel form the basis for the construction, along with plenty of glass to take in the view over the rolling lawn, established gardens and the heated pool with swim jets.
A geothermal system comprising six deep holes in the ground contributes to heating and cooling the house and pool.
Fifty-seven solar panels creating 19.6kw of power, and four Tesla Batteries allow for 24kw of storage.
The slate kitchen is the heart of the lower floor and has a good view over the pool and yard, which is large enough for a game of cricket or even soccer.
Features of the kitchen include commercial grade Gaggenau Appliances, twin fridge and freezer, butler’s pantry and wine cellar.
Outside is built for entertaining and relaxing, with features including a Weber barbecue with sear station, charcoal grill, wood-fired pizza oven, Liebherr under bench Bar fridge, outdoor sink, outdoor fireplace and electric retractable awning.
To the side of the yard is a well laid-out-fenced-off vegetable and herb garden with raised beds. There is also a pool house which doubles as a gym. The property has development approval for a secondary dwelling at the back of the property, which has two street frontages, as well as a two-car garage.
This home is set to smash Lindfield’s residential house price record of $6.75 million, set earlier this year at 9 Northcote Rd.
The home is for sale by expressions of interest, closing October 29, with a price guide of $12 million. Inspection is by appointment. Glenn Curran, of McGrath Lindfield, has more details.
