The Castle - A Blue Mountains Estate of Rare Pedigree Value
A scenic three acres of glorious natural surrounds provides a charming countryside lifestyle in this landmark Victorian tutor-style manor. Undeniably one of the Blue Mountains' grandest family estates, this unique property is more a way of life than simply a place to live, and has been beautifully crafted, lovingly restored and finished with immaculate attention to detail to offer a breathtaking residence of absolute privacy.
The property is spacious, flexible and very accessible providing many opportunities to establish a gallery on the property with room to add an additional gallery or commercial space in the garden. There is a medieval-inspired multi-level turret tower providing a wonderful focal point, along with terraced grounds, a gazebo and established treed areas. The land is spread over two titles offering numerous development or subdivision opportunities (STCA).
The c1898 home has been handcrafted by master stonemasons using high-quality sandstone mined on-site, and offers palatial proportions and an expansive layout over multiple levels. It has been fondly preserved, sympathetically modernised and impeccably maintained to evoke a sense of enduring elegance, and is now on offer for the first time in more than 50 years. Many of the original details are intact and include polished timber flooring, lovely high ornate ceilings, leadlight features and original marble fireplaces.
Inside, there are six generous bedroom suites plus a home office, a steam room, five bathrooms and a powder room, a separate workshop with external entry plus multiple living and entertainment areas, as well as a deluxe main kitchen equipped with a high-end Sub Zero refrigerator, a Wolf stove and walk-in butler's pantry. The property is packed with features, and comes complete with 10 off-street car spaces and a custom-designed library.
Imagine the ultimate country escape embracing elegance, space and design in idyllic surrounds. The Castle is a truly exceptional property with scope for commercial use or development opportunity, with potential for reassignment of lot boundary and subdivision. No expense has been spared to create this magical oasis that is intimately secluded in a very exclusive address that's less than a kilometre from Springwood's shops, amenities and train station, and just one hour from Sydney's CBD.
