'Villa del Mare,' one of Sydney's grandest family homes.

'Villa del Mare', is an exclusive residence on Point Piper's Wolseley Road. One of Sydney's most prestigious homes with a world-class address boasting sweeping harbour views within an intimate, private and secure setting exuding all the luxury and glamour of the Mediterranean. Capturing sweeping harbour views which will take your breath away, the residence is set amid impeccable gardens on more than 1,500sqm of premier land gracing Australia's most exclusive peninsula. This peerless landholding represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fulfil your dream of owning one of Sydney's true residential masterpieces.

Spanning three expansive levels, the residence offers more than 2000sqm of living space including five oversized ensuite bedrooms along with a fully self-contained apartment on the lower level. The opulent master wing boasts equally enormous dressing and ensuite rooms, and uninterrupted harbour views. Extensive formal and informal living and dining spaces encompass a bar room and a magnificent entertainer's kitchen. Additional rooms include a stately office, a gymnasium and a dedicated wine cellar. The property features dual access from Wolseley Road and Wentworth Street, with both entrances accommodating parking for three cars.

Constructed and decorated by renowned builder and designer Chris Norris, this exquisite sandstone home took more than 100 craftsman over two years to create. Every detail is finished to perfection, from the blacksmith-forged wrought-iron balustrades to the potter's hand-made terracotta roof tiles. The residence enjoys the very best in automated smart home technology, including integrated security cameras and C-Bus touch screen interfaces that ensure complete comfort, security and convenience.

Mesmerising views of Sydney's glorious Harbour can be enjoyed from virtually every corner of the sprawling property, creating a dramatic backdrop to this equally dramatic home. Gazing over Clark Island, the panorama takes in the full spectrum of Sydney's skyline, including the Harbour Bridge, City, North Sydney, and the Opera House. 'Villa del Mare' also offers the ultimate vantage point to enjoy Sydney's world renowned New Year's fireworks.

Exquisitely landscaped grounds surround the residence, creating an exceptional environment for alfresco entertaining set against the breathtaking city skyline and sparkling harbour waters. Wisteria-covered dining terraces and manicured lawns are framed by sculpted box hedges, creating a formal effect to the private gardens. The focal point is an infinity edge pool from which you can soak up the view, whilst concealed outdoor speakers and professional garden lighting enhance the atmosphere. The entrance court to 'Villa del Mare' has the feel of a Mediterranean piazza, with intricate inlaid mozaic paving, a water feature and bespoke wrought iron gates.

Recognised as the jewel in Sydney's real estate crown, the exclusive Point Piper peninsula is home to many of Australia's finest properties. 'Villa del Mare's' idyllic harbourside setting is just a brief stroll around to picturesque Seven Shillings Beach, Redleaf Pool and Blackburn Gardens. Double Bay's dining and retail offerings are within a brief drive or an easy walk, whilst the CBD is a mere 10-minute commute.
