A sprawling 10.85-hectare country estate northwest of Sydney has come to market weeks after another iconic Sydney property was listed for sale in Burradoo.

The 3 Calabash Road estate, in Arcadia, was previously sold in 2014 by Guardian Realty for $2.12 million, by private treaty, according to the property’s history on Domain. The property then spent 157 days on the market prior to sale.

To the north of the property lies Marramarra National Park, and to the south is Berowra Valley National Park.

The Arcadia estate is set to attract a wide range of buyers, with Knight Frank‘s Oliver Stillman noting buyers at this end of the market are less impacted by interest rate rises.

“This property would suit a multitude of buyers, including owner occupiers, investors and developers, with the investment side a longer-term proposition,” he said.

“It will appeal to owner-occupiers who enjoy a country lifestyle but with accessibility to the city and ocean, with Sydney less than an hour away.

“Buyers interested in horses and agriculture will also be interested, with the sizeable arable land on the property,” added Stillman.

Stately living

The property boasts 100 metres of frontage, 611.9 square metres (sqm) of total floor area, and includes a main house and secondary residence, connected by an alfresco area. The property also includes a teenage retreat and a self-contained kitchen.

The property is also said to include more than 3.6 hectares of arable property, suitable to add paddocks, a horse arena, or additional sheds.

The property is listed on various sites with price expectations between the mid-$8 million’s through to $10 million.

“The main and secondary residence are impressive, having been designed in an 18th century colonial period architectural style with classical interior details,” said Knight Frank’s Luke Hayes.

“This includes concrete columns, copper guttering, ornate mouldings, chandelier lighting, soaring 3.3-metre ceilings, and French doors in all living and bedroom spaces, opening out to the wraparound balcony.

“The stately entrance foyer leads to a selection of expansive living spaces with gas fireplaces, an entertainer’s kitchen and covered alfresco space.

Hayes added that the property has “flexibility and future potential on offer with scope to subdivide, subject to approvals.”

“Favourably located with connectivity to shopping precincts, prestigious schools, the waterways of Berowra and Sydney CBD, this Arcardia property offers an idyllic country lifestyle with easy access to everyday conveniences.”

Among other features, the property includes an extensive lower-level rumpus room and dedicated billiards rooms, with the rear void section having development approval to be converted into a self-contained apartment with a separate entrance, gym and wet bar, as well as an office and bathroom.

The estate also boasts a 12.5-metre inground pool, four-person spa, brand new poolside cabana and deck pavilion and includes an extensive network of driveways and pathways, two lock-up garages, two dams (with the main being 2000 sqm and seven metres deep), four paddocks and a 500 sqm Colorbond shed accommodating more than 15 cars, a workshop space and additional storage, with a 1 kilometre deep boundary.
