Endowed with the best of old-world prestige and modern luxury, Moreton Manor is a home like no other. This illustrious, 1144sqm north-facing property effortlessly fuses a grand heritage style with functionality and contemporary opulence. It is an architectural work of art, standing amongst tranquil heritage fig trees and fronting Dickson Park, yet only a short stroll from lively restaurants and bars. This is a truly unique residence in one of Sydney's most picturesque and desirable suburbs, Bondi.
As Moreton Manor's new owner, you will take on a piece of history. Originally constructed in 1880s, heritage and majesty are built into the fabric of this grand, late Victorian home. Its remarkable condition serves as a testament to a superior craftsmanship that has withstood the test of time, evident in its preserved original faade and internal composition. The home retains its original joinery while its ornate fireplaces, grand staircase, architraves and decorative cornices will be lovingly restored.
Designed by award winning CO-AP Architects, Moreton Manor's modern transformation enrichers the property's grand Victorian Italianate style with pristine simplicity. Striking double-height ceilings allow filtered northern light. Superior contemporary materials complement an historic palette of Australian hardwoods, painted masonry and cast iron work. The lavish, yet refined aspect continues throughout the interiors, with grand formal dining and living areas. The richly detailed study, library and wine room provide classic retreats, while a more relaxed comfort can be found with the addition of a new wing featuring a stylish family living area.
The open, light-filled kitchen epitomises sophistication, with stone flooring, marble bench tops and the finest appliances by Gaggenau. Broad French doors open on to beautiful gardens, creating a gentle transition into the alfresco dining areas.
Expansive bathrooms and powder room add character to the residence, while the master ensuite presents a luxurious haven as decadent as the finest hotel or spa. Finished with elegant marble, floor-mounted European showerheads, chrome tapware and frameless fluted glass. The custom-made double vanity and sculpted bath further the balance of splendour and comfort.
Framed by grand, century-old Moreton Bay fig trees, a stroll around the grounds further reveals a lush oasis with an array of new and established landscaped gardens, each with its own unique character. Cultural planting and bold-leafed greenery give way to a comfortable, private courtyard and cabana at the rear. Stylish timber hems the horizontal wet edge lap pool in the outdoor entertaining area, heightening the relaxed alfresco ambience, while broad leafy streets and direct access to Dickson Park to the north further the sense of green surrounds.
