159 Hedges Avenue MERMAID BEACH
6 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms | 6 Parking
Commissioned in 2007 by an Australian billionaire, 159 Hedges Avenue is simply one of Australia’s most impressive luxury homes, located on a rare elevated 564m2 allotment with an impressive street presence. A local landmark, this modern masterpiece embodies a unique blend of architectural artistry and an exceptional level of quality, which combine flawlessly to make a grand statement in one of Australia’s premier beachfront locations.
Exceptional modern style and grace are clearly evident in every aspect of this sophisticated 3-storey-plus-basement residence. All levels are linked by marble slab stairs and an internal electric lift, giving access to 114 squares (1,057m2) of luxurious living. Breathtaking in scale but ultimately a well-proportioned family home, the design maximises the beachfront ambience and ocean views, with the addition of one-way mirror-glass windows for privacy and security.
The spacious open-plan kitchen features its own cool room, butler’s pantry and a hidden servery that links to a barbecue located externally on the northern side. Luxurious finishes of imported Crme-Sand marble, 20mm thick glass and custom cabinetry throughout signal unquestionable quality, with an abundance of accommodation and storage options.
On the terraces, full height glass doors glide discreetly away to extend already generous living spaces and admit panoramic ocean views. A hi-tech automated system controls all utilities, including CCTV cameras and security, lighting, windows, blinds and climate control easily operated by the touch of an iPad screen.
