IT is always a delight when a property so completely spectacular as 2 Gilels Way makes it way to market. At a scale of opulence rarely seen on this side of the peninsula the property is unashamedly well-appointed; presenting in superb condition with each zone more dazzling than the one before.

From a birds eye view there is no chance of missing this property with the spectacular 1.07 hectare (2.65 acre) block adorned with lush lawns dotted with sculptures and gardens designed by Colin Hyett, there is a full-size, flood-lit tennis court and other resort class facilities include a stunning in-ground pool with a magnificent guest house encompassing a beautiful alfresco deck and master bedroom with ensuite. From the street however, the scene is quite tranquil with the home part of an exclusive, gated community where only two other properties have access.

Keypad entry opens grand iron gates that flank a fully paved driveway weaving its way up to the porte cochere and a walkway to the wide entry foyer. Nothing has been left on the design table with a completely captivating interior boasting a rumpus and home theatre room and an incredible family zone all oriented around a central timber decked entertaining area landscaped with drought tolerant cacti and other succulents.

The main family zone achieves that striking, sought after balance of space and light with extensive glass windows merging with soaring ceilings to promote a harmonious indoor to outdoor flow. Feature pendant lighting reflects above an incredible 4.5 metre polished concrete island bench in a kitchen which also features three ovens, a colossal pantry and an integrated dishwasher.

The adjoining dining zone has an equally impressive polished concrete table that will comfortably seat ten and to either corner is a fabulous living zone each with gas log fireplace and a wet-bar and a coffee bar respectively. Five bedrooms in the main house include a stunning master retreat with sauna, ensuite and dressing room; three more bedrooms all have walk-in robes and there are two full bathrooms. In the south wing is a partially self-contained home office with kitchen and powder room and in addition to a gymnasium there is under cover parking for up to five vehicles.

Comprehensively appointed, this truly indulgent property is being marketed by Michael Parker or RT Edgar Real Estate Flinders and is for sale by expressions of interest with an estimated price range of $5.5 – $6 million.
