Luxury home that ticks all the boxes – 39 Benelong Crescent, Bellevue Hill
August 18, 2017
39 Benelong Crescent, Bellevue Hill represents a rare opportunity for buyers to secure their very own work of art.
The current owner, car dealership heir Scott Sutton, purchased the property two years ago for $5.3 million, and has undertaken a major renovation to bring the home into the twenty-first century. He has listed the property with Denise Cameron, of Raine & Horne Double Bay, who has been inundated with enquiries – more than 130 in fact, in the first 24 hours after the property was listed. It’s not hard to see why, as the home offers the very best in luxury living.
Constructed of double-brick and concrete slab, the rejuvenated home reflects modern family life. It features expansive living and dining areas as well as a self-contained apartment, ideal for use as a teenagers’ retreat or for guests.
Set across three spacious levels, the property comprises five bedrooms in total, with the main bedroom featuring both dressing room and ensuite, and its own private balcony. There are a further three bedrooms in the main area of the home, all with built-in wardrobes, and another bedroom in the self-contained apartment. In total, the property boasts three sleek, full-size bathrooms and two additional powder rooms.
Luxury family home in Sydney’s inner city
Denise says the home ticks all the boxes of what people want in a luxury family home, with beautiful views from every floor, space for children to play, and ample entertaining areas.
“Whatever is on your list of must-haves, it’s been covered,” she says. “Wow really is the only word to describe this home when you first walk through the door.”
The wide alfresco terraces overlook beautifully landscaped gardens and a pool, heated by rooftop solar panels. Entertainers will appreciate the barbeque area with electric awning and spectacular harbour views to Manly, while the courtyard with its magnificent fire pit will certainly be a talking point for guests.
Auto-irrigation and garden lighting complete the outdoor area, and the flat lawn is ideal for families with children. Denise adds that the indoor and outdoor spaces work seamlessly together, a rare thing to find in the Bellevue Hill area.
Natural light is in abundance, with sun flooding in from the northern aspect. Elegant oak floors stretch throughout the living areas, which flow out onto the outdoor terrace. The kitchen boasts Miele gas appliances, streamlined white cabinetry and large granite benchtops, as well as a casual breakfast area.
Sought after address and ample extras
On the garage level, the alarm system is accompanied by a secure video intercom entry, while the double garage itself offers ample room for both vehicles and storage. Extras include a generous laundry, storeroom, plant room, sauna and ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning.
The nearby elite schools and A-list neighbours make Bellevue Hill one of Sydney’s most sought-after suburbs, and this home offers the best of both worlds – close proximity to the CBD, yet also secluded and private, with the clever and beautiful design giving it a resort feel.
The property is scheduled for auction on September 7, and all enquires can be directed to Denise Cameron at Raine & Horne Double Bay on 0410 444 125.
