Cairns' Finest Residence
A home unlike any other in Far North Queensland, built to the most exacting standards and on a scale seldom seen even on a national stage, 21 Knott Court stands proudly as perhaps the finest residence in Cairns.
Spanning an unheard of 1,441m2 of living across two levels, the property enjoys an unmatched position covering almost 7000m2 of some of Cairns' most prized residential real estate, high in the foothills of the Whitfield Ranges.
Selected as the ideal home-site decades before the development of the surrounding hillslope, this address was always destined for greatness, with the home itself the result of literally years of planning and execution, incorporating the timeless style of Italian Renaissance architecture with the absolute finest of materials.
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 special in the Australian market.
Gently curving with carefully considered wings connected by a stunning central living and dining area, the floorplan has been designed to enhance the generational use of the home, with zones providing their own unique space whilst still maintaining cohesion with the whole.
To the West, the master suite of itself rivals the size of many homes, with opulently spaced bedroom, a walk-in robe and dressing room fit for Milan's latest and an ensuite the likes of which just doesn't exist in the region. Providing separation for work and pleasure, twinned timber panelled offices each offer a sumptuous level of finish suitable for the most fastidious of owners.
The Eastern wing incorporates twin ensuited bedrooms at the front, each enjoying spectacular views and bridged by the "music room" with its impressive ceiling and hand painted dome. To the rear and separated by a wide hallway, a third suite provides impressive living, with its own private terrace, while the gymnasium, which overlooks a seasonal creek can host a wide range of uses.
Guests requiring their own space will be more than accommodated by a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom self-contained apartment on the lower level, fully equipped with its own lounge, dining, full kitchen, laundry and discrete entry. Walking out to the terrace and gardens and across to the pool, it can easily be mistaken for a Tuscan retreat.
Whether a collector or more playful, those that love their vehicles should be pleased with the underground garage providing for 8 cars with the addition of a workshop for the more hands on.
