Pass through the gates onto the 5 acre residence, and the drama continues, as woodland peels away to reveal the house itself; an instantly grand, yet contemporary take on a traditional black barn, framed against arguably the most iconic view of Barrengarry Mountain the area has to offer.
Step inside, and the theatre continues; thanks to Black Stars fabulously high ceilings that encase an entire wall of 6 metre-high picture frame windows that presents the sweeping valley below and mountains beyond as a single, breathtaking image.
For a dwelling this bold and rugged against the skyline, you will be amazed at the intimacy and softness of its interior design: from oxblood leather couch to its oversize blue velvet sofafrom cool concrete coffee table to the luxurious marble kitchen bench Black Star presents as a master class in contrasting texture and mercurial elegance.
At the centre of the main living room, a Chevalier glass box log fire anchors the room and creates a natural focal point, as well as a stunning visual on long, cool nights.
Throughout the kitchen, you will notice that no expense has been spared, including a top of the range SMEG three-oven cooker. The same lack of compromise extends to the dwellings two large and luxurious, tiled bathrooms, complete with under floor heating.
In the master bedroom, as well as your own, personal log fire, you are spoilt further by a stand-alone bath, perfectly positioned to let you relax as you take in the stunning views across the front lawn to the mountains beyond. In addition, another 2 generous and similarly opulent bedrooms, as well as an extra mezzanine bedroom for additional guests, guarantee that a full house at Black Star, never feels like a crowded house.
Black Star has been thoughtfully designed to maximize the beauty of the valleys contrasting seasons: from the snug warmth of its iconic central fireplace on a cold winter night, to its ingenious bi-fold doors that open up the interior space to the wraparound exterior deck, allowing a perfect spot to both bbq and dine outside on a balmy, summer night, whilst taking in the breathtaking spectacle of the mountain beyond.
Words genuinely do not do this unique property justice. Linger over the attached images and youll certainly get a sense of why Black Star is such a sought-after destination, but to fully appreciate its beauty, we would strongly suggest you book early, whilst room is still available.
