More details

The house is divided into wings to give it formality, and various fireplaces positioned inside and out ensure a year-round warm ambience.

Evoking an air of Manhattan elegance, the interior of this house is all about dark and luxurious tones – from the tiling and light fittings to the joinery it’s all about black, grey, silver, and gold.

The Avonhead property is also equipped for fine living with a cinema room, standalone gym, in-ground pool and pool house, covered entertaining areas, sprawling green grounds, and even a seven-car garage. Built for a large family in need of privacy, this house achieves distinction without seeming intimidating.
