A Sydney home inspired by a Balinese resort has hit the market.
At the end of the driveway, you could be forgiven for thinking you have left Sydney and landed at a luxurious Balinese resort.
A home described as a “permanent holiday” has been listed for sale at 222A Warrimoo Ave St Ives Chase with a price guide of $4-$4.5m.
The four bedroom home was inspired by the owners’ travels throughout South-East Asia and has luxuries you would seek out at resorts such as two swimming pools separated by a bridge, a swim up bar, tropical landscaped gardens and a gazebo with an outdoor shower.
The home resembles a tropical resort in all aspects.

“It’s a very unique property for the north shore,” agent Glenn Curran, from The Agency, said.
“It has vision and influence from a tropical resort in all aspects from the landscaping to the swim up bar. It was inspired by the owners’ travels across South-East Asia and their collection of artefacts.
“Once you are in the driveway you think ‘I have left Sydney’”. The only problem with it is that you will have trouble getting guests to go home.”
The property is called “Temple Tree”.
The South-East Asian culture is featured throughout the home.
There are high ceilings in the kitchen, living and dining areas.
Mr Curran said the current owners had decided to leave paradise to downsize.
“We’ve had both interest from prospective purchasers and people coming a long to look at the incredibly unique property,” he said.
“It’s quite a substantial home, over 400 sqm internally spread out over multiple levels.”
The property has been named “Temple Tree” after a beautiful, tropical plant found in many Asian countries known to grow around churches and temples.
Out the back there’s a gazebo surrounded by tropical plants.
The master ensuite has a spa and dual shower.
