American Colonial-Inspired Home in Lush Rainforest Garden Setting

5 2 4

Absolute privacy amongst rainforest gardens and spacious accommodation - welcome to Karinya, an exclusive American Colonial-inspired property designed for both large-scale entertaining and relaxed family living on an impressive 8,527sqm. And, whilst it offers seclusion and peace from the outside world, its blue-ribbon location is only 6km from Newcastle city centre and beaches and little more than a five-minute drive from the John Hunter Hospital.

Built from double brick in the 1950s for the Rundle family and on offer for only the third time, this double storey home is surrounded by lush greenery bringing with it the sounds of birdsong. Perfectly in tune with the daily rhythms of busy family life, a substantial 2006 renovation and extension created extra living accommodation and updates to the kitchen and bathrooms.

Inside, discover a family home of outstanding substance and entertaining prowess. All spaces are generous, and every room captures the beautiful outlook. A wide central arched entrance offers an elegant prelude to formal lounge and dining rooms along with an executive home office and powder room, while sleeping quarters upstairs reveal five robed bedrooms and two updated bathrooms.

A soaring 16ft ceiling, a magnificent cathedral window and timber floors define the relaxed family lounge and dining room. From here, take living outdoors in the summer months with a saltwater pool spectacularly backdropped by greenery and visiting birdlife. The stone-topped kitchen offers space and efficiency with an island bench and a full suite of quality appliances.

This one-of-a-kind home also features a wine cellar, double garage plus carport, abundant storage, heating and cooling and a tennis court, which requires work to bring it back to life. There is also rear right of way from Lookout Road.
An outstanding lifestyle is guaranteed moments from New Lambton's village cafes and popular school.
