Benowa Waters mansion offers grand lifestyle beyond your wildest dreams
House hunters seeking a residence of distinction will feel right at home in this grand abode.
Space is delivered in spades at the Benowa Waters house, which has the whole family and guests accommodated for.
The vast size of the property was what captured the attention of Amy and Dave Hodge in 2017.
“Not many houses can accommodate five cars or have this much land to play with,” Ms Hodge said.
“We knew it would be ideal, as well, for our kids.”

The gated estate sprawls across a 2302sq m waterfront block and features a tennis court and in-ground pool. Adding to the resort-style lifestyle is a floating pontoon and boat ramp with main river moments away.
The property offers 1022sq m of internal living, which boasts a luxury Hamptons style with a touch of European class.
“Everything about this house is big — it’s 110 squares and it’s been excellent for living and entertaining,” Ms Hodge said.
“We’ve hosted parties here and have also really enjoyed the floorplan, we will definitely miss all the space.”
Past the circular driveway and porte-cochere, a formal entrance features a grand staircase, crystal chandelier, marble floors and 16ft ceilings.
One side of the floorplan is dedicated to the main living areas, with a formal lounge and dining room and open-plan family room.
The first of the home’s two kitchens takes centre stage here. It has all the essential ingredients including two Miele ovens, an Ilve oven, Zip tap, two integrated dishwashers and a luxuriously large Calacatta-topped island bench. The spacious living room is warmed by a fireplace and opens to the covered veranda and alfresco dining area with a built-in barbecue and pool views.
In a different wing of the home is a second kitchen, which is just as lavish as the first, an ensuited bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a living area. This zone will make hosting guests a breeze.
The rumpus room, an office with custom cabinetry, home cinema and a temperature-controlled wine cellar are also found at this end of the home.
Upstairs are three bedrooms — two sharing an ensuite, the other with a private ensuite.
The main bedroom with floor-to-ceiling curved windows that frame water views, a private balcony, ensuite and custom-designed dressing room is also upstairs.
“The location has been great, you’re not far from (the) Isle of Capri or Pacific Fair as well as some great private and public schools,” Ms Hodge said.
“We will really miss the space, the beautiful hedging and having a separate wing for guests made a huge difference too.
“The floorplan and land size really has been fantastic.”
The five bedroom house is being marketing by Kollosche agents Michael Kollosche and Eddie Wardale and has a $3.975 million price tag.
