Charlotte Park sits on a rolling hillside looking across a vast native forest to the lights of Sydney beyond. The setting is reminiscent of the landscape of Napa Valley in California, with its majestic views of the surrounding countryside. This, combined with the owners’ vision, were the starting references for the transformation of this promising acreage to an exquisitely realised lifestyle property.
The home has been designed for generous family living across two levels, with soaring ceilings, luxurious finishes and traditional craftsmanship throughout. The layout of the spaces emphasise the home’s connection with its surroundings, and this, combined with the architectural palette gives, a sense of timelessness and belonging.
Surrounding the home, the extensively landscaped grounds feature a bold and eclectic mix of Australian native plants with ancient olive trees and cascading rosemary, softened by an array of coastal flowering shrubs. Within this tranquil setting lie the stables, tennis court, pool, cabana, and weathered timber pavilion, housing chicken coop and kitchen garden, all created from materials that were already ageing beautifully, adding to the feeling that the residence has been here for a while.
