'Fonthill'

Sold

Enjoying panoramic views from the most elevated 100-acres on prestigious Range Road in Mittagong, 'Fonthill' is a breathtaking modernist home that encapsulates contemporary country style.

From the vast gallery-style hallways, to the soaring ceilings; from meticulous finishes in American Oak to a sprawling floor plan that harnesses every view, 'Fonthill' is an intelligent grand design with impeccable architectural credentials, designed by the renowned Howard Tanner of TKD Architects. Built to reflect a village set around a square, the home maximises energy efficiency and incorporates many passive climate control design elements.

Once home to the early development of a Greg Norman designed golf course, the manicured grounds overlook a magnificent lake and have been planted with more than 4000 now-mature trees.

Vehicular entry is up a picturesque winding driveway that takes you beneath a barn, housing a large self-contained apartment, artist's studio and garaging. Entry to the main house is through a vast atrium incorporating bespoke sculptural lighting elements, beneath a curved staircase that leads to four luxurious bedrooms - the large fifth bedroom suite is downstairs. Restrained good taste and artistic sensibilities are evident throughout.

An expansive indoor/outdoor 'sunroom' acts as a conservatory in winter and a barbeque and entertaining area in summer (opening on two sides via bifold doors) for all-weather entertaining. An indoor pool complex flows out to further entertaining areas.

Rammed earth, Corten steel, field stone and natural timber are features of the home. In winter, the double fireplace in the main gallery kitchen/living acts as a heat bank, but Italian tiles underfoot also contain hydronic heating. Every design feature blends taste with functionality.
