An exclusive and rare property, the River House is the private residence of renowned designer Giovanni D’Ercole of brand ‘Love and Hatred’. Giovanni’s vision for the River House has been to create a home which pays homage to nature as a spiritual experience, a place to be inspired and recharged, a true designer retreat.
Tucked away into the Coolamon Scenic ridge, with a gated entrance and a 1.5km sealed driveway that takes you down into the valley, the River House is both private and secluded. Entering through the landscaped water garden and through the antique Indian doors, cathedral ceilings give a wonderful feeling of space to the open-plan kitchen and dining area and across the large outdoor entertaining decks one is instantly captivated by the magic of the forest and the large billabong beside the home.
The timber home incorporates five bedrooms, five bathrooms and huge glass windows with bi-fold doors throughout to allow light and nature to flow into every room. The kitchen has a semi-commercial stainless steel double sink and splash back and the large custom-built parquetry island bench provides ample preparation space. The magnificent master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows that take in the forest and the water below and includes a large ensuite with indoor and outdoor showers.
The spa therapy room has been designed to cocoon and pamper you completely – with a hydrotherapy tub, chic black-tiled steam room and ample space for a massage table.
Surrounded by old stands of native rainforest and dotted with small creeks that all feed into the river and lagoon-like billabong in front of the house the property has a ‘Garden of Eden’ like feel and is truly spectacular.
With DA approval for 6 rural tourism cottages at the top of the property, some 1.5 km from the main house, the property is also ideal for business development.
Open spaces, secret places to discover, somewhere different to take your soul, the River House is the perfect property for the discerning buyer looking for something magical.
