126 Sackville Street Kew


Designer Triumph In Privileged Position

Taking its rightful place on the prestigious Sackville Ward's most preeminent boulevard, this brick Edwardian's incredible transformation from evocative period home to magnificent contemporary residence is nothing short of remarkable. A picture of traditional elegance on Balmoral Avenue's corner since c.1900, its illustrious early beginnings and superb 1280sqm (approx.) parcel have been spectacularly renovated and remastered to host a breathtaking 83 squares of five bedroom, five bathroom accommodation with multiple entertaining zones, pool/spa, tasting room and triple car garage just moments from elite schools, Camberwell Junction lifestyle amenities and transport options.
In the one designer's hands from first vision to final completion, every detail, every aspect, every finish has been carefully considered, meticulously attended to and excellently executed to not only create a state of the art luxury residence, but an innovative and truly beautiful living and entertaining environment that put simply, just works.
Behind a high private fence, north facing landscaped gardens sweep across the parcel's entire frontage, embracing a fretworked original facade that retains its deep traditional verandah, made modern with monochrome tessellated tiling. "Oiled Mink" wideboard Oak flooring draws the eye down a wide arched hallway, flowing past a fully fitted study/ home office and stunning formal sitting and dining rooms where soaring decorative ceilings, a glorious leadlight bay window and handsome marble gas open fire provide an impressive accompaniment. At its conclusion, a home cinema and gym with ensuite partner vast open plan family spaces that seamlessly integrate with sumptuous outdoor zones. Here sliding glass panels retract to create a pavilion style indoor/ outdoor setting where fireside family zones sit aside a dedicated alfresco dining domain with open fire, wet bar, slim line BBQ and auto Louvre House roof and an irresistible saltwater pool/spa with waterwall water feature. Sleek simplicity defines a sophisticated stone kitchen appointed with QASAIR range and Miele appliances before a brilliant fully equipped butler's pantry hides extensive storage and preparation surfaces, Liebherr integrated fridge/ freezers, Vintec wine fridge, Billi water tap and access to cook's garden. Nearby, clever panelling conceals a powder room and secret spiral staircase that winds its way down to a sub floor tasting room complete with 1500 bottle cellar, bar and extensive storage.
An upstairs teen retreat/ playroom provides further flexibility complementing three sizeable bedrooms, all with chic ensuites and large fully fitted built in or walk in robes. The final extravagance, a lavish master suite positioned in its own zone showcases a sitting domain, secluded outdoor terrace with sun rise and sunset views, a seemingly endless walk in robe/ dressing room with enormous central island storage and an opulent twin ensuite featuring freestanding stone bath and double shower with blue sky views.
An exhaustive list of designer features includes New York Marble splashbacks, extensive custom storage, sub floor bathroom heating, zoned ducted heating and cooling, smart wiring for data, phone and Cable TV, video intercom pedestrian entry and CCTV security, solar/ gas heated self cleaning pool/ spa, auto garden irrigation, feature garden lighting and triple car garage via Balmoral Avenue.
