A most significant Estate. Since its establishment in the 1860s, the fact that 'Shrublands' has been owned by only three families throughout its remarkable history reflects the rarity of the opportunity to acquire this spectacular mansion. Unforgettable in its scale, style, grace and grandeur, 'Shrublands' ground level dimensions deliver refined formal receptions rooms and fabulous, relaxed family areas. Magnificent kitchens serve outstanding spaces including flexible lounges, a board room and a wonderful dining domain that flows to a heated piazza that's perfect for outdoor entertaining. Above, the ultimate luxury of nine bedrooms is matched by nine bathrooms. A basement cinema, billiards room, wine cellar, gym and lounge add exceptional allure to a landmark property that's further distinguished by a two bedroom caretaker's residence and secure parking for up to ten cars. Some 6500sqm (approximately) of elegantly landscaped grounds featuring majestic mature trees, manicured lawns, a freshly finished indoor pool in a superb pavilion and a flood-lit tennis court create a stunning context for a residence that plays, and has always played, a major role in defining the desirability of Canterbury's 'Golden Mile' - in one of the world's most livable cities.
