Introducing Nautilus, the pinnacle of luxury living and entertaining on the exclusive Burraneer Bay peninsular,

Set within an enclave of elite homes lining the pristine waters of Sydney’s Sutherland Shire comes this former HIA and MBA house of the year.

Located on four premium foreshore blacks totalling 4387sqm and boasting 3965sqm of internal space across six levels – Nautilus is uncompromising in its approach to luxury living.

With 7-bedrooms, 19-bathrooms, 2 guest pavilions and space for 20 cars, the home’s list of amenities is seemingly endless. With two guest pavilions, a commercial-grade bar, dual full-size championship bowling alleys, tiered home cinema, premium gym (with dedicated yoga and Pilates areas), 2000-bottle cellar, archery range, day spa with Turkish steam room, and three internal separate lifts is spread throughout the residence

Further, the home is fitted with six different kitchens, including a dedicated space for teppanyaki – giving owners plenty of options for entertaining.

That’s not to say liveability is not at the forefront of Nautilus’ design with the master suite complete with a limestone ensuite, with steam shower and sunken bath, a secluded retreat, safe room, dressing room and laundry.

There’s also plenty of substance to match the home’s grand scale, with limestone tiling, sandstone feature walls, timber flooring, marble finishes and the spiral staircase mimicking the shell for which the home is named.

Outside, the home boasts multiple designated areas for lounging, alongside the 25-metre lap pool (solar heated, of course) that flanks the property, and a private beach and marina – the latter featuring a slipway for a 37-foot boat, wharfing and docking area, floating pontoon, waterfront crane and deep water mooring for a 78ft vessel.

As if that wasn’t enough the grounds of the property house a sporting field, self-contained boathouse, beachfront cabana and two firepits and is accessible by the ‘bat cave’ ensuring no steps have to be taken to reach the beach.

The location sees it a 10-15 minute walk to local cafes, and a 5-minute drive to the heart of Cronulla and allows one to make the most of the Sutherland Shire’s coastal lifestyle.

The home is listed with David Highland of Highland Real Estate (+61 405 735 735) and Bill Malouf of LJ Hooker Double Bay (+61 411 428 354). Price guide, $50 million; Australiasfinesthome.com.au
