Welcome to what is surely one of Pauline Hurren’s greatest triumphs and the ultimate tribute to the stone-smothered manors of a bygone era, in the last place you’d expect to find it…
Just 300 metres from the beach.
Built in 1997 – much of it with hand-picked Kanmantoo stone – the Hills meets the sea in a 4-bedroom home with un-relenting quality, intricate detailing, high-end technology and a bright future in the sought zone of Brighton Secondary School.
So imposing beyond the handmade wrought iron gates and gorgeous gardens at its feet, this ode to the Victorian era greets like nothing else in Somerton Park…
The elegant entry foyer is the fork in the road; turn right to see the guest wing with upgraded bathroom with freestanding bath and spacious bedrooms, each with walk-in robes and French door access to the world outside.
Turn left to discover a sitting room, walk-in robe, and an ensuite with marble vanity and its own access to a ‘secret garden’. Welcome to the master.
Follow the heated travertine floors below soaring 4m-high ceilings and stop to admire the library with shelving and a ladder for those hard-to-reach leather bounds.
It all reaches its beautiful crescendo where a French provincial kitchen – with Granite tops and Gaggenau appliances – meets three living zones, including a conservatory with windowed ceilings for starry nights.
Wisterias hug an alfresco pergola of a rear yard with fruit trees, access to a second double garage (with games room/refrigerated wine room/workshop), and the sense you could be in Tuscany…
The best of all worlds near the beach. It doesn’t get much better than this.
