There is even a magnificent heated resort-style indoor pool complex with his and hers change rooms. The main home is built with premium reclaimed materials. It has four fireplaces, one of which is marble and circa 1888.
There are 10-inch wide hardwood floors from pier one, an ornate domed ceiling from a Blue Mountains picture theatre and bricks made a century ago.
Other highlights include a magnificent 3500-capacity bottle cellar, a luxury parents' retreat with two walk-in wardrobes in the main bedroom, ducted airconditioning, a dish room and butler's pantry.
This unique estate would make a world-class event venue and ideal for weddings and conferences, subject to council approval.
It will be auctioned on site, Saturday, February 16 at 11am if not sold before.
