Far North Queensland's Masterpiece
Inspired by the Italian Renaissance style of Andrea Palladio and overseen by architect Andrew Simpson of Total Project Group, 21 Knott Court, Whitfield is a masterpiece by any measure and now presented to market as its original owners relocate permanently.
One of the Region's finest residences, this home is majestic not just in style but in scale as well, offering a total of 1,441m2* (over 15,000 square feet*) of living, the majority of which sits on a single level, perched upon just shy of 7000m2* of some of Cairns' most sought after residential real estate, high in the foothills of the Whitfield Ranges overlooking the City and framed by rainforest reserve.
Elegant and luxurious throughout, from the graceful porte cochere that greets guests on arrival, to the stunning 5m* high ceilings of the central living area to each panel of hand selected timber in the cabinetry found throughout, nothing has been left to chance in crafting something truly unique in the Australian market.
The main residence features 4 ensuited bedrooms, from a stunning master suite to put the Palazzo Versace to shame, twinned bedrooms sharing a central music room, to a guest suite with private bar and terrace looking out to the surrounding rainforest and rear lawn.
Additional spaces include a dedicated gymnasium (or 5th bedroom) with its own private terrace, two timber panelled offices and a wine cellar with a difference.
In keeping with its old-world design, living spaces are sumptuous and thoughtful, with formal dining as well as both casual and formal lounges, all of which take in breathtaking views of the City. The kitchen is a centrepiece all of its own, with Gaggenau appliances, granite benches, butler's pantry and practical touches throughout.
Downstairs, a completely self-contained guest apartment provides a further two ensuited bedrooms, private living and dining, full kitchen and laundry facilities, private balcony and courtyard and a separate entrance. Perfect for visiting family, guests or staff. Parking is more than provided for with an 8 car underground garage with workshop, and its own city views.
Overlooking the 17m* pool with its stunning blue mosaic style, there are multiple terraces to provide both viewing platforms and break-out areas, combining to create one of the premiere entertaining venues in Far North Queensland.
Held within a single family since construction, the original owners are now committed elsewhere and the time has come for the property to be released into new hands.
Words and images, however good can only take us so far, to truly appreciate the grandeur of this home, you must see it to believe it.
