The cinemas may be closed, but that’s not a problem at this high-end Dural acreage which has just hit the market with its own tiered theatre room, a tennis court and swimming pool.
The property is located at Carters Rd, one of the Hills’ district most expensive addresses, where a neighbouring estate fetched a record $10.85m back in March 2018.
Other features include two garages accommodating up to 10 cars, a billiards/games room with wet bar and an alfresco area with outdoor kitchen.
“It is not a bad place to be in quarantine,” said agent Kate Lumby from Lumby Hampson Real Estate.
“These kind of trophy homes don’t come up that often – it’s the perfect land and the perfect property – it just ticks all the boxes.
“The theatre room is just like being at the proper cinemas – it is big enough to host a movie night and there would even be around a 1.5m distance between the front and second row.”
The sprawling five bedroom single level residence, set on a 1.65ha parcel of parklike gardens, has attracted strong interest since it was listed on the market earlier this month.
According to CoreLogic RP Data, the coveted address is tightly held and incredibly private. There were two sales recorded last year but neither price has been disclosed.
A comparable acreage at 29 Carters Rd sold for $6.4m in June 2018.
Ms Lumby said the property had been scheduled to be auctioned, however, this has been changed to a private treaty sale due to the current advice on social distancing.
She believes buyers looking to purchase high end luxury estates are less likely to be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
“They tend to have a higher net worth – they are after a property that has privacy and offers somewhere to entertain family, friends and clients,” she said.
The Denton-built modern homestead is positioned behind a gated entry with hedge lined circular driveway and water feature.
Inside it has an open planned lay-out with porcelain tiled flooring, a stone kitchen with large built-in pantry and family room with gas fireplace. The billiards/games bar, also with a fireplace, has a large wet bar and a full-sized drinks fridge.
Bi-fold doors lead outside to a unique outdoor entertainment area overlooking the infinity edged swimming pool and full sized championship tennis court.
“It is a high quality residence with grand entrance, soaring high ceilings and beautifully proportion large living areas including both formal and informal living,” Ms Lumby said.
