A dream acreage with a multitude of ‘wow’ features has just hit the market in Matcham on the Central Coast.
The striking home includes a whopping 850sqm of under roof space, a tranquil pool, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, space for eight cars and rolling lawns backing onto 8 hectares of parkland reserve.
Known as Ferneries, the grand estate at 5/217 Oak Rd, Matcham is located on one of the most exclusive streets in the region, tucked away in absolute privacy.
For sale via expressions of interest with Cathy Baker of Belle Property, it has a price guide of $3.5 million.
“I love the elevation of this acreage. It is bathed in afternoon sun and absolutely meticulous – it is just a joy to show,” Ms Baker said.
Owner Peter Holley is passionate about his property and said his family is going to miss it when they sell.
“We have done some major extensions and renovations and changed the gardens, but the unique design of the house was from the original owner, who is from the Netherlands,” he said.
“I believe that a lot of the architectural inspiration came from his European background. Everything is high quality, downstairs is rendered double brick, with concrete ground and first floor.”
Drive up to the house via a private intercom-installed security gate to arrive at an architecturally designed estate that features bold minimalist lines in perfect harmony with over a hectare of beautifully manicured gardens and gently rolling lawns.
Glass-wrapped living spaces flow across two levels, with the ground floor containing four bedrooms, each with their own terrace.
Upstairs features a sophisticated open-plan island kitchen with European appliances and a walk-in pantry.
From here, step outside to arrive at your own private oasis with a covered entertainment area and resort-style saltwater pool, perfect for hours of hosting parties with friends and family.
On top of this, the house includes four and a half bathrooms, LED lighting throughout, 12 solar powered skylights, two studies, ducted climate control, guest and a 4T vehicle hoist.
Matcham has a median sale of $1.962 million and is currently the most expensive place to buy a house on the coast.
Oak Rd and Coachwood Rd are the top selling streets, with several properties selling here for over $3 million.
The priciest transaction on Oak Rd was a multi-sale of two neighbouring acreages in 2017, purchased in the name of John Singleton’s business, Bonython for $3.95 million.
