In every crown one jewel shines more brightly than the others, catching your eye, holding your gaze. Quambi is that jewel. Situated on 10 very private park like acres just 5 minutes from the historic Lower Hunter Valley town of Paterson, this award winning residence with its resort-style ambience is constructed and styled to exacting luxury standards. Of rendered-brick and spread over four pavilions, from the majestic courtyard entrance flanked by large urns, pond and palms the home opens through custom-built French-style cedar doors to a versatile floor-plan. The home's north-eastern wall of glass windows and doors delivers stunning views from every room and seamlessly integrates indoor-outdoor living and entertainment. The main pavilion is the home's hub boasting free-flowing, light-filled formal and informal living and dining zones which merge fluidly with the elegantly paved al fresco dining and entertainment area overlooking a salt-water wet-edge swimming pool, natural lagoon with jetty and sophisticated gardens. The gourmet kitchen, with walk-in pantry, stainless steel bench tops and island breakfast bar and Euro appliances enjoys pool, lagoon and garden views. The Master bedroom in pavilion two boasts a walk-in robe, dressing room and stylish Villaroy & Boch-fitted ensuite with vanity, shower and toilet, plus serene internal private courtyard garden. Two queen-size bedrooms in pavilion three, each with built-in robes and superb garden and lagoon views share a modern family bathroom with vanity, bath, shower and separate toilet. There is also a spacious light-filled sunroom. The fourth pavilion on the edge of the main courtyard hosts a suite-sized bedroom. Suitable as a studio, office or private guest accommodation, this room accesses a third beautifully fitted bathroom with vanity, shower and toilet. Adjacent is the spacious laundry with ample bench and storage space, linen closet and built-in washer and drier. Quality fixtures and fittings throughout, including custom-made blinds, ceiling fans in most rooms; Eco-Smart fireplace in the living pavilion; decor in a neutral palette throughout. 5-car carport.
Fully fenced, approximately half of Quambi's gently undulating grounds are given over to lawns and established gardens with citrus and specimen trees, while the remainder is wooded. With the erection of internal paddock fencing Quambi would be suitable for horses. The house is serviced by 2 x 25,000ltr and 1 x 5,000ltr poly tanks while the lagoon provides garden water via a firefighting pump. There is also a lockable garden shed.
Only 5 minutes from Paterson and with its proximity to the region's estates and wineries and the Hunter's major regional centres of Maitland (15 minutes); Newcastle (45 minutes) and with Sydney only 2.25 hours away, Quambi is stylish and alluring: luxury in nature, the ultimate lifestyle residence and an idyllic sanctuary for creativity and relaxation.
