Bespoke design and faultless craftsmanship combine to create a home that looks as fresh today as the day it was built. The home cleverly combines soaring ceilings and resort-style spaciousness with hidden rooms and cozy nooks.
Entering the front gate visitors are met with landscaping and the sound of water before the heavy timber front door opens to reveal the resort-inspired main living zone. Here, the double-height ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows create a large, open space, while elements such as designer lighting, custom-made carpets and power points that cleverly pop up from the floor impress.
In the main reception space, the windows on the south side have a mirror finish for privacy, while on the north side a UV finish protects the home's precious artwork, which are showcased in specially designed alcoves.
Upstairs are two private guest suites with ensuites, walk-in robes and balconies. The northern suite overlooks the gardens, while the waterside room takes in views of the canal and a glimpse of the Glass House Mountains. Also on this level is a cleverly concealed home theatre room that boasts nine recliner seats, and a play room that could easily become another bedroom.
Downstairs, the spacious main bedroom is a true parents retreat where you can relax and overlook the canal. In this zone is an extra-large ensuite with spa bath and double vanities plus a huge walk-in robe.
On the other side of the home, the kitchen comes complete with induction cooktop, side-opening oven, metres of bench space and a large concealed pantry. There is a casual eating area and cozy family room connected to the kitchen. For more formal occasions, the large dining space boasts another hidden gem - the temperature-controlled wine room. Enjoy a glass of wine here or at the bar, or take your glasses into the gorgeous sunroom, where you can enjoy the outdoors while being protected from the weather. Also on the ground floor is the exquisite library, with concealed office.
Each room of the house has a dedicated controller for the air-conditioning system, while the home's automated lights operate on a Dynalite system. The touch screen by the kitchen controls the lights and music, which can be piped throughout the building and outdoor areas.
While the infinity-edge pool, spa, decks and pontoon offer all you would expect and more from a home on Minyama's canals, it's the north-facing gardens that surprise and delight. These carefully designed Japanese and European-inspired outdoor rooms are linked by meandering garden paths and curve past the quiet sun-drenched courtyard dining area.
4 Minyama Island also boasts a separate guest suite with walk-in robe and ensuites and separate entry, overlooking the gardens.
