An exquisite display of innovative architecture and deepwater frontage, this 2023 completed family oasis, designed by highly acclaimed, award winning Tobias Partners presents an unrivalled lifestyle with stunning bay views and a deep connection with its setting. The property was built by Pacific Plus Constructions who won the 2022 Master Builder of the Year award.
Featured in ‘The Local Project’, the home was created for its much travelled family to reflect the joy of Australian life, allowing movement through voluminous spaces that is ultimately grounded in family and togetherness. The excellence is continued outdoors where the journey down to the water’s edge is a pleasure through the lush sub-tropical gardens to the jetty.

The impeccably crafted home rests on a north-east facing 1,224 sqm block on one of the Lower North Shore’s finest streets, presenting with a discrete intercom access gated entry. From the street, it looks like just a simple single level embracing peace and privacy. The Myles Baldwin designed landscaping is integral to the experience evident from its concrete style bridge at the entry that rests over the serene central garden that has been carved out of the natural sandstone.
At once refined and informal, the home spans over four levels linked by an internal lift and a striking central cantilevered staircase. Soaring void spaces accentuate the space found over the expansive living room with stunning cabinetry and a fireplace. The room opens on two sides to either the central courtyard or the terrace.
Downstairs has been designed for family enjoyment and relaxation with a large games or TV room fitted with cabinetry and a fireplace and a substantial wet bar with a commercial style fitout including an ice maker, drinks fridges and a climate controlled showpiece wine storage unit. Nearby is a flexible gym room that could be used as a 5th bedroom plus a luxury steam room and powder room.
A striking aspect of its design was the effortless interplay between the sophisticated interiors with the exteriors. Floor to ceiling Vitrosca windows and the stunning central skylight provide a deep and panoramic connection with the surrounding green spaces and nature, filling the home with warmth and light.
A fully tiled pool nestles into the landscape surrounded by generous terraces and a deck, whilst a pathway lined by lush gardens and passing by a waterfall allows you to meander through nature. A DA is held for a boatshed with the concrete platform and plumbing already in place plus a hydraulic wharf and a jetty to the deepwater mooring allows for boating and watersport adventures. A terraced area with built-in seating offers a superb space to relax and contemplate life by the water’s edge.
