Idyllic manicured lawns, an in-ground heated swimming pool and grass tennis court make for a breathtaking oasis that one family will soon call home.

The once-in-a-generation offering is positioned on an expansive 2,200 sqm corner parcel of land on Sydney’s prestigious upper North Shore.

Described as being a classic federation estate in Lindfield, NSW, the new owners will be spoilt for choice with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, balconies, myriad of dining rooms (both formal and casual) and picturesque garden complete with quintessentially preened hedges and multi-level lawns.

Perhaps the crowning glory of the liberal mansion are envy-inducing features including a state-of-the-art kitchen and enormous wine cellar with the capacity to store hundreds of bottles of vino.

Perfect for a zealous entertainer, the estate boasts a large outdoor entertaining area and wrap around entertaining terraces.

The breathtaking family home is situated in a dress-circle position on Lindfield’s east side which boasts an internal size of about 546 sqm and includes a double lock-up garage with internal access.

Underneath the soaring ceilings is an abundance of space in the shapes of a rumpus room, additional teenage retreat, study, wood burning fireplaces and reverse cycled air-conditioning.

Bedrooms are split across two floors with the master home to a palatial ensuite, walk-in-robe and north-facing balcony.

“Our listed property at 19 Mackenzie Street, Lindfield is sitting on half an acre of prime land (2,200 sqm),” Knight Frank Associate Director, Prestige Residential NSW, Adam Ross says. “For the same asking price, buyers in the Eastern Suburbs or Lower North Shore locations such as Mosman, would normally be looking at 600 sqm of prestige property.”

With an asking price of between A$9 million and A$9.9 million, the property has attracted an abundance of interest. Within the first week of listing Ross had received more than 100 inquiries.

“About 25% of those inquiries are from expats, primarily in Hong Kong and Singapore,” he told The Weekend Australian. “Many inquiries are from expats based overseas looking to take advantage of the exchange rate and make a return to Australia when they can.”

The much-loved family estate, which was last sold in November 2012 for A$5.4 million, is close to a number of top-ranking private schools, public transport and shops – making for an ideal lifestyle.
