Contemporary Fairfax House

Contemporary Fairfax House Richardson & Wrench

Description from the architects: a creative fusion of sophisticated architectural concepts with the latest, lifestyle technology has produced a residence that’s sleek and stylish yet intimate and welcoming. This is a home that’s one with its natural environment, taking full advantage of its spectacular views and world class, elevated position above Chinamans Beach.
Three masterful living levels, linked by lift from the security of the double garage, maximise the perfect northerly aspect with its year round sunshine and cooling prevailing breezes. Vast open-plan living areas seamlessly merge with the terraces that surround the pool, the private atrium-styled central courtyard or the deck off the separated living room with its views. The kitchen is a cook’s delight with quality imported appliances and Caesarstone benches. Four luxurious bedrooms in total. Three on the lower level, two with ensuites, the master a private retreat on the upper level with deck, huge walk in robe ensuite bathroom and spacious study.
Beautifully detailed, no expense has been spared. Polished timber floors in the living areas, travertine finished bathrooms and powder room, 100% wool carpets in the bedrooms, sandstone defined landscaping plus C-Bus automated system, R/C air conditioning and comprehensive security.
Around 350sqm internally and just a short stroll to Chinamans Beach or around to Balmoral Beach, this low maintenance, brand new, architectural masterpiece will exceed your expectations and appeal to families and professional couples.
