A rare distinction perfectly pairing the everyday needs of modern living and entertaining with exquisite luxury is brought to life by award-winning architect Bayden Goddard. Welcoming the epitome of architectural excellence and exceptional design, this Sovereign Island masterpiece is perched on a wide expanse of water and boasting superb Broadwater views, with no expense spared in its complete re-build.

From the vast expanses of imported marble, the 1250 bottle temperature controlled wine cellar, sound proof home cinema, executive study and gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line Miele appliances and large scullery, through to the waterfront alfresco area with a professional Teppanyaki bar and outdoor kitchen, there is simply no shortage of enviable areas to entertain or unwind. Great for all home cooks, this kitchen is the heart of the home, with a large island bench made of Italian marble, beautiful dark wood cabinetry and plenty of room for guests. Its place in the open plan living area allows it to overlook the large living room and dining area.

Outside is the perpetually sunny, heated saltwater pool and sunken fire pit, encircled with bench seating, for when a more intimate get-together beckons, or retreat to the cleverly tucked away rec room, with its full bar facilities and showcased by a feature wall of reclaimed Melbourne Brickworks remnants, when a large scale gathering awaits.

The bedrooms are also a statement in superior design. A sumptuous master suite with polished parquetry floors captures the exquisite water views plus features a built-in kitchenette, concealed television and a marble ensuite. One of the main show stoppers of the master ensuite is the wall papered ceiling, this quirky black and white print features a large rhinoceros among flowers.

It is also accompanied by an expansive, light-infused dressing room. The remaining bedrooms are also generous in size, with superb ensuites and walk-in robes, with the ground floor guest suite also featuring kitchenette and private access.
