4 Lindesay Avenue, Darling Point

Inspired by Kyoto’s imperial palace, you'd be forgiven for never knowing this lush property ever existed.

4 Lindesay Avenue is tucked away in one of Sydney's most exclusive neighbourhoods, hidden behind an expertly landscaped Garden of Eden at the fingertip of Darling Point peninsula.

The five-bedroom, Michael Dysart-designed house is built around an airy two-storey atrium, accessed by a stone entrance through a panelled door made of zinc. Indoor bamboo plantings and a working wood fireplace hark back to the property's Japanese flare, as does the impressive marble wall feature.

Outside, the lush retreat continues with topiary-lined lawns and a heated pool. The north and north-west facing living spaces also capture the balmy sea breeze and peek harbour bridge views.

Expressions of interest for this slice of urban paradise are open until April 17 with a buyer's guide of $35 million. You can contact Alison Coopes on 0419 433 229.
