Sitting between two hills and on a plot of over an acre, this triangular construction sits behind what’s described as a ‘monolithic gate’ (and possibly the best gate we have ever seen). If the gate doesn’t lead to a jaw drop moment, the house certainly will.

Very much the lost Bond villain lair, the house offers 4,600 sq. ft. of space and does it well despite the rather difficult working space. In fact, those angles just add to the impact of the interior living area. If that’s not enough for you, there’s even a miniature replica guest house too. Yes, really.

As for that living space, it includes a ‘futuristic’ carport, wine cellar, workshop; and a separate pool area with sauna and outdoor entertainment and dining areas. When the partying is over, you can get catch up with your beauty sleep in one of the three bedrooms or check yourself out in one of the four bathrooms.

Lots of open reception space too behind the walls of glass, including what’s described as a ‘chef’s kitchen’ and ‘imported designer fixtures’, as well as a sunken den with fireplace, ‘huge’ media/family room and sculpted fountains. Luxury definitely at the fore.

But the finishes don’t overshadow the architecture, which is stunning and no doubt the reason why an offer has been accepted so quickly. If you want to be in the mix if the deal fails, you’ll need around $1,997,000 to be in with a chance.
