51 Batemans Road, Gladesville

5 Bed | 4 Bath | 2 Car

Enduring elegance, inspired French Provincial style and an exquisite display of ornamental greenery sets the tone for the splendour that awaits in this remarkable property that seems to step straight from the Southern Highlands. A meticulous renovation and extension fuses character and luxury creating a family home in an exclusive, peaceful pocket close to village shops, the bus, parks and elite schools.

Bespoke excellence, stunning family sanctuary

Exceptionally private, fenced and electric gated from the street, the C1926 home rests on a stunning 859sqm with luxurious living on a grand scale and flawless attention to detail. The transformation is a breathtaking marriage of elegant traditional features with high-end luxury that unites functionality and beauty.

The beauty starts outside

Setting the scene is the spectacular gardens and outdoor spaces. The grounds were created by its landscape garden designer owner and featured as Home of the Week in Domain magazine. Mature hedging frames the property creating outstanding privacy. An urn water feature provides a soothing ambience whilst a mix of fragrant Frangipani, Gardenia, Angel Trumpets and Stephanotis tantalise. The living garage is draped in greenery including New Dawn Roses whilst the gardens include sweeping lawns for the kids to play and edible spaces with lemon, blood orange and a herb/veggie patch.  

Exquisite interiors

Elegant interiors rest under soaring ceilings with timber floors and excellent natural light. Relaxed yet sophisticated, the floorplan is substantial, easily accommodating the growing family and spanning two generous levels with a comfortable TV room, impressive open plan living and dining rooms with a gas fireplace and an upper level teenage retreat.

Perfection in indoor to outdoor living

The casual living zones and the kitchen are a highlight of the house. As a focal point, the luxury marble topped kitchen is stunning, and displays a large island/dining bench, commercial grade Smeg freestanding double oven, gas cooktop and teppanyaki plate and a large walk-in pantry. The kitchen merges with the living and dining spaces that are perfect for entertaining. A bank of bi-folds retracts to the generous alfresco terraces, gardens and pool.

Summer and winter fun

Enchanting backyard spaces incorporate a solar-heated fully tiled pool and the greenery draped garage that makes a fun space to entertain family and friends. The poolside cabana provides plenty of options as either an entertaining zone, private work from home area, studio for the artist or breakaway area for the kids.

Space for all the family

The extensive floorplan includes five generous bedrooms plus a home office spread over the two levels. Most feature built-in robes and all enjoy easy access to one of the four stunning bathrooms. The lower level bedrooms adjoin a bathroom and provide options for guests or in-law accommodation. Indulging with its grandeur, the master is a perfect parental retreat with its vast proportions, balcony, walk-in robe and ensuite.

All the extras and a perfect locale

This is a home that will both exhilarate the senses and provide restorative calm while functioning as a comfortable family abode. Additional features include ducted a/c, abundant storage spaces, rainwater tanks, an internal laundry and double securely gated off street parking. Blissfully quiet and exclusive, it’s an easy stroll to Harding Memorial Playground, Gladesville’s thriving village strip including Coles and bus services and moments to St Josephs College, Villa Maria Catholic Primary School, Riverside Girls High School and arterial routes to the city.
