No need to go to Bali. Wake up to your own stunning, quiet, private retreat in Darwin. What used to be the 5-star bed and breakfast, Feathers Sanctuary, is this elite home complete with the main house with four huge bedrooms and two bathrooms, AND four self-contained cottages.
As you drive into the property you will encounter a circular driveway surrounding an enormous bird atrium - the first of many. Walk the porcelain stair entry and witness double hand crafted timber doors with buffalo-horn handles (would you believe) and a four-feather mural imprinted in the floor.
Upon entry, gaze down the long corridor of massive porcelain tiles and louvered windows with views of the gardens and bird atriums. To the left is a home office, lounge room or the fourth bedroom with a view of the second largest atrium on the property. To the right is a second lounge room, also with a view of a bird atrium.
Continue down the hallway and to the left there is a brilliant gourmet kitchen opening onto the massive dining area, complete with a walk-pantry and stone benchtops, just right for a chef or avid home cook. Gorge yourself in books and birds in the adjoining miniature library or step through glorious sliding French doors to enjoy a glass of champagne or a cold one on the outdoor verandah. The green grass plain and lagoon in front of you plays host to some of the larger free-roaming bird varieties; Jabirus, Bustards and more.
The main home has a party-sized master bedroom with a magnificent ensuite with two showers, a separate water closet, and wall-length shutters to view the centre garden. The walk-in robe is a fashion lover's dream. There are two other massive bedrooms and a main bathroom, also with two showers.
The home boasts top of the line features and the highest of quality fittings. It is naturally cool with cathedral ceilings in the master bedroom and living areas plus snap-lock glass and timber louvered windows. Combined with split-system air-conditioning throughout will allow for luxury and comfortable living, no matter the season.
In addition, there are four unique self-contained cottages nestled within manicured gardens with their very own miniature atrium view just outside their windows. They come with kitchenette cabinetry and an Bali-inspired' outdoor-style ensuite.
