A pool and tennis court in hedged gardens make the grounds of this English-revival house a marvellous match for its appealing architecture. While beauty abounds, it’s not all old-school, with an interior that’s big on modern functionality and contemporary glamour.

A long driveway, on the approximately 5370-square-metre block, curves past the tennis court and pool en route to the house. Dramatic in dark timber contrasting with white window frames and dormer windows jutting from the steep roofline, the facade creates a memorable introduction.
