Berthong occupies a premier 1662sqm (approx.) absolute waterfront landholding.
One of just a handful of freestanding residences to grace Elizabeth Bay.
Magnificent proportions, breathtaking grounds and prized north-easterly harbour aspect.
The uninterrupted harbour views span from the Garden Island naval base to Clark Island, creating a sublime backdrop.
In 2005, award-winning Corben Architects extensively restored and revived the two-storey residence receiving an MBA award for their efforts.
Berthong accommodates five colossal ensuite bedrooms, including a private guest wing.
Opening to the broad Colonial-style balcony which frames the home, the master suite encompasses a lavish custom-designed dressing room and a marble ensuite with a freestanding stone bath.
The living spaces are both grand and abundant, providing an ambient environment for all occasions.
An intricate and imposing stained glass window presides over the magnificent dining room which adjoins an equally regal formal lounge room.
The north-facing casual entertaining space is framed by traditional windows and bi-folding doors, flowing effortlessly to the outdoors.
At the heart of the home is a sophisticated Calacatta marble kitchen with a butler’s pantry for your entertaining pleasure.
Soaring ceilings, ornate cornices and a colonnade of arched windows enhance the sense of drama and grandeur.
Contemporary comforts also abound, including ducted air conditioning and state of the art security with CCTV cameras.
The lush established grounds have a tropical feel, creating a haven of privacy for entertaining.
A sandstone terrace steps down to an expanse of level lawn and a pool at the water’s edge capturing magical views.
Former chauffeur’s quarters have been converted into a quaint self-contained two-storey guesthouse.
A double garage is accessed directly from the street and an additional garage and extensive guest parking is secluded behind auto security gates.
Elizabeth Bay has always been a sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of inner city life. Stroll to the cosmopolitan dining scenes of Potts Point, Woolloomooloo or Darlinghurst. Take the scenic route through the Royal Botanic Gardens past the Opera House and walk into the CBD, with its wonderful array of cultural attractions.
