“It is a large family home, which is fully renovated and in a cul-de-sac,” Aqua Mt Eliza director Michelle Skoglund said.
She added the property backed onto Hendra, the former estate of Sir Edgar and Dame Mabel Coles, which sold for $7.25 million in 2014.
There have been two $4 million-plus sales in the suburb so far this year.
The double-storey Lois Place home offers five bedrooms and four bathrooms with multiple living areas inside and out.
Its resort-style offerings include an infinity-edge pool, mod-grass competition tennis court, pool house, trampoline and children’s play area.
A wrought-iron gateway and a wide return driveway leads to the front of the property, which is lined by manicured box hedges, tall cypresses and mature trees.
The portico entry flows to a foyer under soaring ceilings, while the formal lounge and dining rooms are warmed by an ornate marble fireplace.
The gourmet kitchen has marble benchtops, breakfast bar, premium appliances and bespoke cabinets.
Excellent for entertaining indoors is the family zone with a built-in bar and custom wine wall storage, which is enhanced by views of the pool, tennis court and lush gardens.
Step outside to a sheltered alfresco and barbecue area perfect for a gathering in any weather. There is also a pool or guesthouse with its own bathroom and sauna.
The parents’ bedroom and three more bedrooms are zoned to the upper level. Also downstairs is a library or office and a guest bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
