IT IS the opulent triple level house that is set to give the price record a real lift in Kellyville.

In addition to its two beautiful pools, this ultra-modern six-bedroom home has an elevator — which can fit up to eight people.

The property, located in a blue ribbon neighbourhood at 28 Strathfillian Way, has just been listed on the market with a guide of $3.35m- $3.65m — the highest ever in the suburb for a non acreage property.

The main living area on the top floor overlooks one of two pools

“When you enter the home it is just ‘wow’, it is like walking into a hotel,’’ said agent Laurice Morgan from Merc Real Estate.

“In the foyer there is a 2.5m drop chandelier and a beautiful fish tank which has been built around a natural piece of sandstone.

“I’m not sure where you’d ever go on holiday after living here.’’

It was completed 11 months ago by its owner-builder. Features include a fully equipped home theatre and bi-fold doors leading out to its amazing outdoor entertaining terrace.

An upper level saltwater mosaic wet-edged pool cascades over a wall to a smaller wading area for children.

The parents retreat has two living areas, a kitchenette and a completely open ensuite so you can enjoy the bushland views while soaking in the freestanding tub.

The lift takes visitors from the ground level to the top floor, open plan main living area with marble kitchen fitted with integrated appliances.

If the 1091 sqm property achieves its asking price it will topple the current Kellyville record of $2.94m paid for 42 Bel Air Drive just last month.

It follows a number of sales in excess of $2m in the suburb this year. Among them 4 Antrim Place and 25 Connelly Way, both of which sold for $2.3m.

“There are so many gorgeous homes in Kellyville and this property will set a new benchmark,’’ Ms Morgan said.

“Prestige buyers are seeing the potential in the suburb as it is central to everything and with the train line coming it will become more popular.’’

The property, which is available to view privately, has already attracted strong local interest.

“If you are thinking of building your dream home — the hard work has been done — all you have to do is move and enjoy,’’ Ms Morgan said.
