Jaw-dropping Sydney mega-mansion set to torpedo Sutherland sales record

A six-level Sydney mansion with authentic WWII torpedo in its basement is now on the market.

The Announcement:

One of Australia’s most extraordinary uber-mansions, home to an authentic WWII torpedo in its basement, is set to hit the market in coming weeks, offering buyers the chance to own six levels of inconceivable luxury perched on the shores of Sydney’s Burraneer Bay.

‘Nautilus’ is an entertainer’s dream, possessing every amenity imaginable to enrapture guests, with 2 stand-alone guest pavilions, a magnificent wet bar, dual championship AMF bowling alleys, a premium gymnasium with complimentary yoga and pilates studio, an in-home cinema, archery range, 25m lap pool, teppanyaki BBQ, jacuzzi, day spa with a Turkish steam room and a 2000 bottle speak-easy cellar.

‘Nautilus’ is the only Australian home to boast 3 internal lifts, street to water access without traversing a single step and expansive dedicated entertaining areas throughout the home.

The sale of the extraordinary 325 Woolooware Rd home is anticipated to torpedo sales records for the Sutherland shire. Owned by entrepreneur Steve Shelley, the award-winning, rare Australian home outshines other icons of architectural artistry.

Nautilus is a sprawling oasis of entertaining extravagance and opulent living with the prestigious 3,965m2 home encompassing 7 beautiful bedrooms, 19 bathrooms and 6 kitchens across its 6 levels.

Brought to life by Sydney-based Sammut Developments – a company synonymous with ultra-luxury developments – Nautilus boasts design excellence at every turn, winning the 2016 HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year, 2016 HIA-CSR People’s Choice Award and 2016 HIA-CSR Australian Custom Home Award awards. It also earned Sammut Developments the coveted Master Builder of the Year Australia award.

“This is one of the most exceptional houses ever constructed in Sydney, with no detail spared in creating a contemporary retreat overflowing with state-of-the-art amenities and sophisticated finishes,” said Allen Sammut, director of Sammut Development Group.

The Sydney mansion has been designed as much for liveability as it has entertainment potential, boasting a master suite reminiscent of a 6-star hotel, complete with a limestone ensuite with steam shower and sunken bath, a secluded retreat, safe room, dressing room, and laundry.

“It’s an extremely rare opportunity for a home like this to hit the market, and it has been quite some time since Sydney has seen anything of this calibre up for grabs” said Mr Sammut.

“Considering the sheer volume of facilities Nautilus is home to, combined with it’s phenomenal waterfront positioning overlooking Buraneer Bay, we anticipate this gem will garner an unprecedented level of interest from the luxury market.”

The enormity of Nautilus is expertly countered by three internal separate lifts, a characteristic only held by Nautilus in the entire Southern Hemisphere, ensuring residents can effortlessly access every indulgent space captured within Nautilus.

As if the in-home amenities weren’t enough, Nautilus’ extravagance continues outdoors, with the grounds of the property housing a sporting field, self-contained boathouse, beachfront cabana, and two fire pits.

The property’s own private beach creates a waterfront playground like no other, with a slipway for 37’ boat, wharfing and docking area, floating pontoon, waterfront crane and deep water mooring to harbor a 78ft vessel with ease alongside the private wharf

Car buffs can relish in the brilliance of a four vehicle show room immediately off the living area, in addition to the garaging space for 20 cars.

David Highland, of Highland Property Group which is marketing the sale of this extraordinary trophy home in conjunction with Bill Malouf from LJ Hooker Double Bay, said the architectural icon was one of Sydney’s signature uber-luxury homes set to achieve one of Australia’s greatest sales results.

“As a local myself, I am excited for this property campaign to launch and am honoured to be a part of such an iconic, once in a lifetime opportunity to sell one of Australia’s finest homes. I believe this campaign will raise the bench mark for prestige property in the Sutherland Shire,” said Mr Highland.

“The pre-launch interest is very strong and we are looking forward to bringing the luxury property to the market.”

Mr Malouf is truly astounded at the level of quality throughout the residence, as well as its impeccable finishes and style.

“There is not a lot that seriously impresses me but this is a magnificent labour of love. If this house was on the waterfront in the eastern suburbs, it would be a $120 million house,” said Mr Malouf.

Spanning 4 blocks of ultra-waterfront positioning on the shores of Port Hacking in Sydney’s Burraneer Bay peninsular, Nautilus is conveniently located within close proximity to Cronulla beach and a collection of local cafes, shops and amenities.

Nautilus takes its name from magnificent nautilus shell symbolised by the breathtaking spiral staircase that is a true focal point of the master built home
