8 Erskine Place
This timeless, Bob Davey design is an oasis of elegance and calm. Just a few blocks from the ocean on a vast 1,029 square metre landholding directly opposite Tilton Park.
A free flowing, living and entertaining gallery forms the body of the ground floor. Cool marbled tiles and columns, wrought iron screens and balustrades creating a tangible feeling of open space and elegance, beautifully integrated with the outdoor dining pavilion and the terraced gardens beyond.
Avoiding the solid division of rooms, many areas are defined through the use of French doors encouraging the uninhibited flow of natural light.
A large granite kitchen services both long table and casual dining areas, along with a formal lounge and family living room and a professional office.
A self-contained guest suite with bathroom and kitchenette is perfectly suited to visiting family and friends.
The first floor master suite features a resort-style double bathroom, a huge walk in dressing room and a lovely balcony it shares with a second, equally spacious bedroom. Two further double bedrooms, with a study space between them, and a huge studio / music room complete the accommodation floor.
The gardens are a stroke of green genius; lush sculpted lawns between planted beds framed by cool shady trees, sheltered and tranquil.
This house is a masterpiece of planning and consideration; built for time and space, for life and living. Close to seemingly everywhere and complete with the luxuries of modernity and yet secluded and still, peaceful and welcoming.
